Electric Blinds

An in depth look at skylight blinds and other window shades and coverings.

Electric blinds are a more modern, “new age” technological alternative to the “old fashioned” blinds that contain “dangling” cords which can become tangled and present potential danger to pets and small children.  Electrical shades are easy to install, coming complete with instructions and a remote control for easy manipulation of the blinds.  As far as pricing goes, I have found that electrical shades range anywhere from about $100 all the way up to about $600 or more, depending on the style, design, manufacturer and place of purchase of the blinds.  Some web sites that you may want to visit to shop for and possibly purchase remote powered blinds, are,,, and

If you would prefer to shop locally, as opposed to shopping online, you can visit your local department and home improvement stores, to purchase electric blinds.  Some stores that you can try are Walmart, K-mart, JCPenney, Home Depot and Lowe’s Home Improvement stores are just a few select stores from which to choose.  You can also run through your local Yellow Pages, your local newspaper classified section as well as check out your local free flyers and circulars for stores that sell motorized blinds.  Another good source for purchasing remote control blinds is by visiting online discount web sites, such as Amazon or e-Bay.  Many web sites (such as those that I have already mentioned) also offer special discounts, rebates and “deals”.  Some deals and discounts or rebates to mention are “free shipping”, discount codes, percentage rebates and discounts as well as discounts upon placing “bulk” orders.

If you decide that you would like to shop at online discount stores and purchase “used” electric blinds, make sure that the seller offers a “refund and return” policy, in the event that the blinds do not function as they should or are somehow damaged, during shipping.  Compare prices of used remote control blinds to new blinds of the same type.  Also, make sure that the seller provides the ability to view photographic images online for you to actually be able to view the blinds, before placing your order.  Quite simply put, you will want to “shop around”, before settling on one particular set of automatic blinds to purchase.

You are investing both your time and your money into purchasing electric blinds that you will want to be satisfied with, both within your budget, as well as cater to your own personal taste; browse the internet, even if you are going to make your purchase at a local retailer.  The reason to browse online first, is so that you can get a good idea of the types of remote control blinds that are available on the market, for sale.  You can plan your budget, according to the basic and general prices of the automatic blinds that you find online, so that you are prepared, when making your purchase at your local area retailers, before shopping for the automatic blinds that you eventually are going to end up purchasing.
