We love all the new trends and designs that are being pushed out this year, 2018 is definitely a year with some amazing styles, from designer prints to completely new concepts in how to operate your window dressings.

If synchronization is your thing

Feb 9, 2018

I know I like to talk about how amazing automated blinds and shades are... but that's because they are. Some people may see them as a luxury but others see them as an essential to make their life easier.

There are many reasons to automate your blinds, it could be you run a large facility, where opening and closing a lot of blinds and shades is VERY time consuming, where as with our systems this task could be as easy as pressing a button.Others may not have the mobility to reach up and adjust their blinds, but having that control on a phone or tablet could make someones life much less stressful. And of course there is the luxury factor, you may just want to add a perfect finishing touch to your newly decorated house, or make your board room the talk of the town.

What ever your reason for choosing an automation, we have a variety of systems to suit needs needs, tastes and styles, one of which you can see below. The Luxaflex silhouette PowerView® Motorisation system is amazingly responsive, smooth and quite. And the synchronization between the blinds is flawless!

Remember we are also available across social media, so follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates.
