3 Ways to Make Your Home Prettier and Smarter

Los Angeles is, without a doubt, the crossroads where style and technology meet in order to create beautiful and functional homes of all shapes and sizes. Whether this means a series of custom-built, motorized blinds, remotely controlled custom lighting fixtures, automated thermostats, or anything else, Shadows Design is at the frontier of smart home solutions for Los Angeles residents.

Not exactly sure what your house needs? No problem. Here are three of our favorite ways to bring your abode into the 21st century, in style.


Remote Lighting Systems



Bar none, lighting is one of the most effective ways to create luster and ambiance, and while custom window coverings can help filter natural light in or out, there are certain times where you can’t rely on daylight to give your dwelling that extra flare (or glare).

This is where remote lighting comes in. By integrating a system of automated lights and dimmer switches, you can transform any room via lighting schemes into a sophisticated and scenic oasis, all from a remote control. What’s more, these lighting systems can be pre-programmed to respond to time changes, shifts in sunlight, and can also be outfitted with motion sensors, so your house will be perfectly illuminated and as energy efficient as possible.


Custom Motorized Window Coverings


Of all the modish ways to “wow” guests, few are as classy and effective as a set of luxury and custom-designed window coverings that adjust on a motor. What’s great about automated custom shades is that they can be programmed to adjust on a schedule, giving you full control at any point in the day over:

  • The quality and quantity of light entering your home

  • The natural fluctuations in temperature of your living space

  • How much privacy you want

The icing on the cake is that motorized windows coverings can be hand-tailored to fit any space. They can aesthetically coordinate with whatever your sense of interior or exterior design demands.


Automated Thermostats


While not as aesthetically focused, automated thermostats are ideal smart upgrades that make homes more comfortable and carbon-friendly. Similar to automated light systems, these thermostats can be programmed to respond to time of day and minute thermal shifts, ensuring that every room stays the exact temperature you want it to, all hours of the day. Even better, an automated thermostat can be scheduled to respond to times that you are not home, so an unexpected work trip or vacation will not result in a jaw-dropping energy bill.
