Roller shades are the most popular style for powered options. Lutron offers a wide variety of materials, colors, and styles, as well as different levels of transparency for enjoying and controlling the California sun. For perfectly synchronized performance, Lutron’s Hembar Alignment system ensures your shades raise and lower in unison for harmonious operation.


Honeycomb shades add aesthetic appeal as well as excellent insulation characteristics. The cell design helps keep sunny interiors cooler and keeps heat in, especially on chilly California nights. When it’s time to enjoy your view or let all the light in, Lutron’s smart control pairs seamlessly with your smart home automation for automated operation and energy efficiency.


Roman shades are classic and a staple in interior designer portfolios. With Lutron shading, you can choose from a vast array of materials and colors, pick the pleats, and enjoy the convenience of shades that respond to the push of a button with no unsightly pulls.


Sheer blinds are an elegant solution for filtering light and enjoying views while offering privacy and sun control. Lutron adds precise control with vanes that tilt open and close with the touch of a button or a voice command. Beautiful fabrics and colors ensure that the treatments will match and enhance your décor.


If your taste or décor runs to wood in some rooms, there’s a powered treatment for that too. Lutron adds precise motorized control to tilt to positions within 1/16th of an inch. When raising and lowering, the industry’s quietest motors and the Hembar Alignment systems ensure swift and precise adjustments for one window or several rooms’ worth, with no strings to pull – or see.


Even angled windows can be motorized. Cable-guided shades keep shades in line and under control in non-vertical installations, and they are also excellent for keeping the shade in place when you open doors to enjoy the breezes flowing in from the Pacific.


Tensioned shades are similar to cable-guided models, except tensioned models can go fully horizontal for skylights and special windows. In addition, Lutron’s tensioned models minimize the light gaps around the fabric for superior coverage.


Traditional drapes are also fair game for motorized, automated control. Available styles include pinch pleat and ripplefold, and curved windows (like bay windows) can also be accommodated. Lutron’s innovative Kirbé vertical system goes a step further by lifting vertically to allow uncluttered window views.
