How much does remote control add to the cost?

This can be highly variable, depending on the type of blind, the number of blinds, whether they are adjacent (as in a conservatory) and the control system required.

Generally speaking, the extra cost per blind will probably range between £150-£250 to add remote control operation to conservatory blinds, but if you only want one or two motorised blinds the costs would be much higher.

Cheaper cost options for motorsation are available, but are not recommended for use in conservatories.
