Are Motorised Roller Blinds worth it?

Roller Blinds
Posted: 9 Dec 2022

Roller blinds are often used over standard rectangular windows, but with bespoke roller blinds, we can go that extra step further and fit your blinds to your exact measurements and different control options. Motorised roller blinds are a great investment if you’re looking to install a large number of blinds, or need larger and tall blinds that would be difficult to control manually. We have a wide range of control options, including remote control roller blinds, smart blinds and battery-operated blinds.

Where are Motorised Roller Blinds worth installing?

Large areas of glazing…

When covering large areas of glazing a more standard blinds company many end up using several smaller blinds, simply because they can’t make or fit large blinds for windows. However our blinds run larger than standard blind suppliers. We can cover large areas of glazing with just one or two large roller blinds, depending on the size and your preference. For example, motorised roller blinds are a great option when covering full sets of bifold doors or sliding doors. These are cost-effective window coverings for bifold doors that still have a high level of quality.

Roller blinds fitted just above the door will hang in front of the doors, which is why they are also popular blinds for sliding doors. With motorised roller blinds, there are no cords to control the blinds with and nothing that can interrupt the mechanism or tangle it.

Out of Reach Areas….

Large or floor to ceiling windows

As true blinds specialists, we can craft floor to ceiling blinds for windows like those pictured below.  We have the ability to transport large material rolls in our bespoke vans and go that extra mile by working with scaffolding to reach those difficult areas. Bespoke blinds like these would be almost impossible to control without motorisation, which is why they’re an excellent use for motorised roller blinds.

Another hard-to-reach area that we often have to work with is installing our roller lantern roof blinds. Not only does the motorisation make the blinds easy to control, but they can also be run across the space with no extra cabling or wires. In the case of extra large lantern roof blinds, we may use an interim bar in the middle to ensure no there is sagging in the fabric.

Types of Motorisation we recommend for Roller Blinds

  • Smart blinds which connect to your Amazon Alexa®, Google Home® or Somfy® Tahoma. You can then control your blinds via voice command or via a tablet. If you have a smartphone you can extend your blinds with with the Somfy® Tahoma app.
  • With battery-operated blinds you can install electric blinds in a spot like a lantern roof without worrying about wiring.
  • Remote-control blinds give you the opportunity to control up to 99 blinds from a distance.

Context: the 4m x 5m garden room was completed just over 12 months ago and is my living space in our bungalow. However, the roof lantern has caused problem with intense direct sunlight given the south facing aspect of the room.

The electric blind perfectly matches the décor; the quality is superb; the frame and mounting are discrete and the operation of the blind both simple and smooth. It is the perfect final touch and my living space now feels finished.

What a transformation!! We had new roof blinds and window blinds fitted last week., as well as some bedroom blinds. I cannot praise this company enough. Right from the unpushy salesman Aaron, through to the amazing Ryan, who measured and fitted these blinds to perfection.

Our safety during COVID was also paramount and completely comfortable with them in our home. It is a large roof and could never have imagined how good it would actually look. All in all, outstanding service and outstanding quality. I would highly recommend this company.

Thank you Ryan, you are a star!
