Are Remote Control Shades worth it?

Posted: 22 Oct 2022

Blinds are important in any home for privacy, reducing glare and increasing insulation in properties. Therefore, it’s also become increasingly popular to install remote control shades. They are understandably slightly more expensive, so some people are still debating whether remote control blinds are worth it.

Remote Control Shades can save you time & energy

Our remote control blinds are more popular for people with many blinds, large blinds or blinds that are hard to reach. Our conservatory roof blinds are controlled with an extendable pole that slots into the bottom of your blind and allows you to lift each blind up and down individually. So, if you have mobility issues or just find it tedious to manually shut each blind then motorisation may suit you. With remote control shades, you can save time and energy by closing all those blinds individually or altogether by just clicking a button. In the long run, even though electric blinds have a higher cost than manual blinds, the time saved and ease of use make them worth the extra money.

Control up to 99 Shades

Our  pure™ remote controls are designed specifically for use in conservatories. Although we can connect remote controls to a variety of blinds around your home. It’s worth noting that our electric blinds system is designed to control many blinds. With our puresolo™ system you can control up to 99 blinds at once and in up to 9 zones in your home.

Neat and Concealed Shades

Our remote control blinds don’t have any ugly wiring or bulky hardware that sticks out. As a result, we offer a tidy electric blinds solution that’s neat and simple to use. They even give you complete control to control your blinds without excess wires or side chains.

Where are Remote Control Shades most effective?

1. Remote Control Conservatory Blinds

As previously mentioned, our remote controls are specifically designed for conservatories. As a result, we recommend them for electric roof and side blinds.

2. Remote Control Shades for a Lantern Roof

We offer Duette® lantern roof blinds, roller lantern roof blinds and XL lantern roof blinds. Remote control blinds are worth investing in for lanterns, as they are difficult to reach and a large roller lantern might be awkward to manually control. Additionally, battery-operated blinds are great for lantern roofs because it means you don’t have to worry about a power-source being nearby.


3. Remote Control Blinds on an Apex Window

Apex windows can include floor to ceiling blinds that are over several meters high in some builds. Consequently, controlling blinds for an apex window would be much more difficult without motorisation because of the window’s height so we recommend smart blinds or remote controls.

4. Remote Control Shades for Bifold Doors

Remote control shades are great for covering sets of bifold doors as well as any large areas of glazing. For that reason, we recommend motorised roller blinds for your bi-fold door blinds which you could control with a remote or smart device.

Very pleased with both quality and fitting we would recommend them to anyone considering having blinds made to measure.

We struggled to find a company who could make a blind big enough for our orangery lantern. This company were able to make and fit a solar powered set of blinds for us. They were fitted quickly and are excellent. Dealing with this company was easy and their staff were all helpful and professional. I would not hesitate in recommending them.
