Cellular Shading for Residential Installations

It’s easy for homeowners to overlook an important aspect involved in controlling the overall environment of their home—the amount of natural light that enters the house. While current designs reflect homeowners’ desire for more natural light, there’s still a need to control all that beautiful southern California sunshine. That’s where shading solutions from Lutron come in.

Conventional shading systems (drapes and even traditional cellular shades) can be cumbersome. The angles of sunlight change throughout the day, and unless someone is home to adjust the shades or drapes it’s hard to let the light in—or block it out—effectively. Needs also change with the season. In the winter it’s nice to allow more sunlight in, to take advantage of passive solar heating.  And in the summer, homeowners want to keep things cool by blocking harsh sunlight. That’s when an automated shading solution really pays off in saving energy.

Style & Function Meet

Of course there’s more to shading systems than just saving money. Lutron shade controls not only work beautifully (shades align precisely within 1/16th of an inch to provide a balanced, beautiful look), but they are elegantly appointed, with a wide variety of stylish fabric options and colors.


Lutron shading systems also offer incredible convenience. Homeowners can control within the room—or remotely via IR remote controls, wireless tabletop controls, or even be set to an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment of shades.

Increase Security

Shading systems even offer increased security. Homeowners can set their systems to the “Away” setting so that their shades are automatically closed at a predetermined time—restricting the view into your home from the outside.
