Looking to transform your home? Toying with the idea of getting window blinds?
Whether it be for every room in the house or just a few of them, blinds allow you to control how much light enters through your window. Aside from helping you to save money on your energy bills, this also improves privacy and security, by preventing outsiders from being able to see straight through your windows.
There are various types of window blinds on the market today, but with their sleek appearance and ease of maintenance, motorised window blinds are an excellent choice for the modern home. And what’s more, they can be opened and closed with the simple touch of a button. It really doesn’t get much more convenient than that, does it?
Despite making a beautiful addition to your home, motorised blinds (also known as electric roller blinds) bring with them a host of advantages. These include:
Electric roller blinds come in an assortment of colours, fabrics and designs. This means you should have no issue finding blinds that complement your interior décor and impress your guests.
All our motorised blinds are made to measure and professionally installed to ensure they fit like a glove. Aside from improving the aesthetics of the room, they can add instant value to your home – making it more memorable and appealing to potential buyers, should you ever decide to put it on the property market.
2. Low maintenance
All it takes to keep your motorised window blinds in tip-top condition is a quick wipe down from time to time with a clean cloth.
We don’t recommend using any harsh chemicals or cleaning detergents, as these could damage the material and colour of your blinds, and avoid soaking or spraying products onto the blind directly. Although unlikely, the excess liquid could damage the mechanical element and, in the worst-case scenario, stop your blinds from working completely.
Taking good care of your blinds and maintaining them properly will prolong their lifespan and help them to stay looking as good as the day they were fitted. And that means you’ll receive maximum value for your money!
3. UV protection
Is your conservatory a sun trap in the summer? Perhaps your kids refuse to go to sleep because their bedroom isn’t dark? Having electric roller blinds will enable you to manipulate the light – creating shade from the sun’s UV rays during the day and darkness at bedtime.
On top of this, motorised blinds can help to protect your furniture against direct sun exposure, which can cause discolouration and fading. Just set the blinds to a specific time via the app, and you needn’t worry about the sun’s glare bouncing off your TV or laptop screen, or stopping you from getting that much-needed lie-in at the weekend.
4. Child and pet friendly
Worried about little fingers (or paws) getting caught in your window blinds? Unlike traditional blinds that have long pull cords or metal chains, electric roller blinds boast a cordless design. Instead, they’re operated by a remote control or small wand, giving you peace of mind.
This means motorised roller blinds are a fantastic choice for playrooms, nurseries, conservatories, and any other areas that your children and fur babies have access to.
5. Energy efficiency
If you’re looking to boost your home’s energy efficiency, electric roller blinds could be perfect for you.
Raise the blind to the top and let loads of natural light flood in through your window. This way, you can switch off any lamps or lights and save money on your electricity bills.
Made from thermal fabrics, you can keep your blind closed to ensure your room stays toasty warm in the winter or cool in the summer. As a result, you won’t need your central heating on for as long, nor will you need fans and air conditioning.
