Has lockdown given you itchy feet?

Whilst it’s great to spend so much time with everyone under the same roof, it can make you incredibly aware of the areas that you no longer like, or haven’t shown enough TLC to over the years. But with juggling work AND home-schooling – not to mention cooking, cleaning, ironing, shopping and everything else – finding the time (and money!) to spruce your home can be easier said than done.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t necessarily have to start from scratch. In fact, a few simple tweaks here and there can go a long way in transforming the look of your home – making it a place that is both stylish and functional for the entire family. It could be anything from adding a lick of paint to the walls to swapping dated furnishings for new or fitting blinds.

Here our experts, at Galaxy Blinds, explain what makes motorised blinds so special and why you should at least consider the investment if nothing else.

Motorised blinds – a smart choice

Understated, convenient and easy to use, motorised blinds are fast becoming a favourite option for homeowners in the UK. Unlike conventional vertical blinds and roller blinds, there are no unsightly cords and you can enjoy comfort and privacy with the simple push of a button.

Aside from the convenience of opening and closing the blind(s) without getting up off the sofa, they can also enhance home security while you’re away. Perfect for when it’s time to go back to the office or when we’re eventually allowed to jet off on holiday again – creating the illusion that you’re home and making your property less of a target for intruders.

If you’re keen to make your home smarter and more sophisticated, the One Touch® blinds from Louvolite are an excellent choice – and available to order online at Galaxy Blinds.

Innovative yet affordable, our motorised blinds look great in almost every room within the modern home and come in a vast range of designs, colours and fabrics. You should have no issue finding something that works nicely with your interior décor – either making a stunning focal point or blending seamlessly with the rest of the room.

How do motorised blinds work?

Motorised blinds are straightforward to install and set up, powered using a motor, and fully rechargeable. Most are operated using a remote control – but the Louvolite One Touch® blinds are controlled from an app on your smartphone or tablet or using voice activation too.

Using the free to download app for IOS and Android, you have a host of options in terms of operating your motorised blinds. You can:

  • view the rooms in the home and control the blinds within them
  • control multiple blinds individually or all together
  • set timers for blinds to open and close automatically
  • set daily schedules to keep heat in and save money on energy bills

As if that wasn’t easy enough, thanks to Amazon Echo and Google Home, you can also use voice control to operate your blinds. So if you’re after luxury living with voice activation, the Louvolite motorised blinds certainly tick all the right boxes for you!
