Are Motorised Roller Blinds worth it?
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.
