A trendy hotel in Amsterdam's airport seeks to bring swankiness to the modern traveler. According to the New York Times, citizenM, which opened in 2008, recently opened a second hotel in Amsterdam proper. The building features 215 rooms equipped with large beds, wall-mounted televisions and motorized blinds.

According to the news source, the 'M' in the hotel's name stands for mobile, "as in mobile citizen of the world." While the rooms may not boast closets, instead there are three hangers near the door, it's a technological playground - a hand-held MoodPad controls the lighting, TV, temperature and window blinds.

Motorized blinds, while seemingly at home in the popular hotel, also fit well in a multitude of residences. Those who live in large houses may want to consider installing motorized blinds. Homeowners can enjoy the accessories as rooms filled with windows are flooded with afternoon sun at the push of a button, without having to manually open each blind.

People with small children may also benefit from motorized blinds. Since there are no cords, choking hazards are no longer a threat. New parents, whose arms are often occupied by their newborn, will be able to easily open and close blinds with a remote.

Experts at Home Decorating Reviews remind homeowners that shades are not just functional, they also add style to rooms, so individuals will also want to consider which motorized blinds' aesthetics fit in their room.
