  1. How Do Motorised Blinds Work?

    Motorised window blinds

    Let’s get straight into this… How do motorised blinds work you ask? Motorised blinds are opened and closed by a small, motorised unit that turns the bar that the blind is attached to. The motors are extremely efficient and use minimal power to operate.

    These motors are powered in one of two ways. You can either attach them up to your mains supply or use rechargeable batteries. Both options are great, it just depends on your preference!

    A mains power supply option is ideal for new build or extension scenarios, as the wiring can be installed during the build to accommodate the blinds. If you’d rather not wire them up to your mains, rechargeable blinds are perfect. Battery-powered blinds are completely wireless, and the batteries can be removed and installed easily within the blind shaft itself.

  4. What Are the Benefits of Buying Made-to-Measure Blinds?

    Buying made to measure blinds

    Made-to-measure blinds come with a long list of benefits. They are superior to their off-the-shelf alternatives for many, many reasons. But first, let us explain exactly what they are!

    Made-to-measure window coverings are made to fit your window and your window only. Using your measurements, and the fabric and lining that you’ve chosen, we go off and make your blinds, exactly as you’ve asked. No two made-to-measure blinds are the same. And that’s their beauty.

    The alternative option is off-the-shelf blinds. These are the ready-made option. You’ll find them packaged up on the shelves, in set colours and sizes. Whilst they’re a quick solution to window coverings, off-the-shelf blinds are unlikely to fit your windows and meet your requirements as they should.

    Stay with us whilst we take a closer look at the benefits of made-measure-blinds to help you make the best decision possible…
