Lets look at some of the solutions and the latest innovative new products on the market .
There are so many ways to moterise blinds but the two we use the most are .
1. Hardwired ...... the roller blinds are wired to the mains and operated by remote control or switch .
2. Battery operated re -chargable moterised roller blinds...
(as seen on room to improve in Dermot Banonns house)from the Luxaflex range .
We love these as there is no need for pre- wiring at the mains .
No bulky battery pack as the battery is contained inside the roller.
The remote control is easy to use and is programmable for up to 5 blinds and 3 different levels .
Stop wherever you want too.
Some can be controlled from an app .
Re-charge easily just like charging a phone but only once or twice a year with normal use .
They are a fraction of the cost of hardwired blinds (from €120 supplement per blind plus programming).
They look sleek and uncluttered and lets face it , they add a luxury designer edge.
Most of the extensions with lots of windows leading out to the garden and sliding or bi-fold doors go for this roller blind option.
Well we all know there is blackout and then total blackout.
( I personally don't even close my blinds. I like to wake up in the morning naturally and my body clock seems to do the job nicely. The birds in spring however are a different story and earplugs sort that out for me)
Back to blackout .
The new total blackout roller blind system shown does exactly what it says.
The blackout blind is contained within a frame and the sides are sealed blocking out all light .
The headrail at the top encloses the roller and bracket blocking all light from escaping at the top .
A regular blackout roller will have light bleed around all sides .
We love them because they let lots of light in too.
Whites, off white and grey voiles are all available as standard rollers , moterise to add a designer look and fit in self contained cartridges if that's what you fancy .
eg. Where there is a tilt and turn window and there may be no other solution but to wall mount a blind.
They are available in white and chrome , brushed steel and can be covered in the same or contrasting blind fabric. A fabulous product with a designer edge to it.
Voile blinds offer privacy by day and dimout or blackout blind fabric give privacy at night.
All blinds on a double bracket system .
Moterised so no chains and child safe.
A plain finish for a stream lined uncluttered look .
These are reverse rolled so the roller is behind the fabric and therefore not visible.
The view isn't half bad either .
Have you a view that deserves a fabulous window treatment ?
There are endless ways to let the light shine in .
