The benefits of electric blinds
Roman blinds have been used since a long time ago to protect interiors from sunlight and offer style and luxury to a room’s design. Some people suggest that the roman aristocracy used window shades similar to today’s roman blinds in order to lower the temperature of their houses and protect themselves from the hot Mediterranean sun. If Romans have indeed invented roman blinds, we do not know. What we are certain of is the fact that we have reinvented them, by introducing electrically powered roman blinds. Now, instead of using a cord in order to lower or raise the blind, you can do that with the push of a button. You can either have a wall switch installed or purchase a remote control and use it whenever you want to adjust the amount of light that enters the room, wherever you are in the house.
Electric operation has brought increased convenience and comfort. Now you can enjoy the beauty and sophistication of a traditional blind model and the ease and luxury of a contemporary operation style. Remote control roman blinds are the perfect combination of tradition and modernity, the old and the new, the beauty of the past and the comfort of the future.

Of course, the greatest benefit electric operation brings is the possibility to adjust the blinds without having to make any effort. Pulling the cord of a set of blinds could prove to be a difficult task, especially when the window is high and large, and you have to use a chair in order to reach the cord and pull it. For the elderly or the people who have reduced mobility, pulling the blinds’ cord themselves is out of the question.
The good news is that, with the help of electrical operation, they will regain their independence, because lowering or raising the blinds will be done with the help of a switch or a remote control. So, we advise people who have mobility difficulties to purchase electric blinds, because it will make their life a lot easier than before. Contact our company and we will gladly help you to choose the best model of electric blinds, the colour and material of the roman shades, or the type of operation system.
Electric blinds bring many other benefits, depending on the features the operation system offers. Some systems have timers, that help you set a time of day when the roman shades will lower or raise, and they will do so, even if you are not at home. Some have even more complex features that offer temperature and light control. These hi-tech blinds will adjust themselves, depending on the indoor temperature and time of day. So, even if you choose a traditional model, like the roman blinds, you can upgrade your blinds by choosing the most convenient and luxurious technological features we offer. And, considering the affordable prices we have, there is no reason why you should be moderate.
Roman blinds – your options
Roman blinds are very delicate and warm shades, perfect for living rooms or bedrooms. They are made of a single piece of textile material, so they resemble curtains. That is why many people go for roman shades instead of other models that have a more modern look. If you install roman blinds, you will be able to maintain an intimate and pleasant atmosphere in the room. However, roman blinds do not match all kinds of interiors. Modern, minimalist interiors need sober blinds, like metal or plastic blinds, that maintain a cold, institutionalised atmosphere.
In a traditionally designed room, roman blinds are perfect. And you have two options you can choose from. You can choose either simple, flat blinds, or hobbled, teardrop blinds. They differ in the way they look when fully lowered.
Flat blinds remain completely flat when you lower them to the bottom of the window. Hobbled blinds, on the other hand, offer a wavelike effect, because the fabric folds into pleats beautifully, thanks to the excess fabric used to create them. Because the folds look like teardrops, they have been poetically called teardrop blinds. Teardrop blinds are one of the most popular choices, because of the exquisite effect they offer.
Besides being an element that increases comfort, hobbled blinds are also a very important design element that could change the aspect of a room completely. Furthermore, because the fabric overlaps, hobbled blinds offer greater insulation than flat blinds.
Besides choosing the type of roman blinds for your house, you also have to choose the material they will be made of. We offer a wide range of materials that differ in type, texture, colours, patterns and transparency. The most common choice with roman blinds is fabric, but nothing stops you from choosing other materials like, for example, bamboo.
Then, you can choose the colour of the blinds, so as to match the colours of your walls or furnishings. You might also want to choose a pattern for the blinds. Last, the transparency of the material is a very important aspect you should decide on, because it will influence the amount of light that will penetrate the blinds when lowered.
If you are not sure what type of roman blinds to choose, contact us and we will be happy to offer our assistance. We also offer a free measurement service, because we know how difficult and important making perfect measurements is in order for the blinds to fit perfectly on your windows.
