Electric Blinds

Electric Blinds Coventry

Our Electric blinds in Coventry are a relatively new entry to the motorised blinds market. They’re great for those who might have difficulty opening and closing blinds, but they also have a whole host of other benefits. They offer a whole range of features to make your life easier. They might not have been on your radar when looking for new blinds, but we think you should consider motorised blinds as a modern and convenient solution for your home or office.

At Aquarius Interiors, we’re a family business who provide quality electric blinds to families across Coventry. We offer high-quality made to measure electric and motorised blinds, to ensure you make a choice your happy with. Our measuring and fitting service ensures you find the right quality electric and motorised blinds for you and your home in Coventry.

How do electric blinds work?

Simply put, our electric blinds in Coventry work by using a small motor to turn a blind shaft to either raise or lower the blinds. This can all be done at the touch of a button, either on the wall, your phone, or remote control.

That’s all there is to it really. The motors are efficient and quiet, so won’t make an annoying noise when you lower or raise the blind.

Hardwired or battery powered?

With our electric blinds in Coventry, you can choose to either have them connected to the mains or battery powered. Each option has its own pros and cons. Battery-powered blinds don’t have any wires to hide or install and are far easier for hard to reach windows that don’t need a power socket. They’re also very energy efficient so take very little power to operate meaning you won’t be changing the batteries every few weeks. They also have the benefit of being far easier to install. 

However, battery-powered electric blinds do have their shortcomings. Firstly, you will have to replace the batteries at some point, normally every few years. Also, if you have multiple blinds side-by-side, the rise and fall of the blinds may not be in time. Finally, battery-powered blinds aren’t suitable for large blinds because they take a lot of power to operate. 

How about mains powered, or hardwired electric blinds? Well, they’re great for large blinds, enable blinds to rise and fall in sync and will never run out. So, they’re essentially good for whenever a battery-operated blind isn’t an option. They’re also energy efficient too, only drawing a small amount of power.

But now for the downsides. Hardwired blinds are far more difficult to install. They require more planning and the installation of a 5 amp fused spur close to where the blind will hang. If a suitable socket isn’t available, you’ll have to get one installed by a qualified electrician. Once that’s done, the wires also need to be hidden so everything looks tidy. All of this means that hardwired blinds can be more expensive.

How can they transform your room?

So now you know the pros and cons of hardwired and battery-operated electric blinds, why should you invest in them? Well, the answer is that they offer a range of unique features.

The first of the features on our electric blinds in Coventry is that you can set a timer, so your blinds open at a certain time in the morning, meaning you can wake up naturally with the sunlight.

Aside from helping you wake up naturally, electric roller blinds can also help you fall asleep too. You can get blackout variants which will fit your windows perfectly and block out any light from outside.

Aside from these practical features, our electric blinds in Coventry also bring with them aesthetic benefits. If you’re going for a modern design, electric blinds really are the answer. Not only are they futuristic in the way they can raise and lower themselves, but they also come in a range of sleek and contemporary designs to suit a range of styles.

But finally, they let you raise and lower your blinds from your bed. Who doesn’t want that on cold winter nights when you’re warm and comfortable under the covers?

Wall mount, remote control, or smartphone controlled?

The final choice you have to make when deciding on electric blinds in Coventry is how you’d like to control them. You’ve got three options: wall-mounted, remote control, or smartphone-controlled. The benefits of having your blinds remote controlled or controlled via a smartphone are obvious: you can control your blinds wherever you are in the house.

Wall-mounted controls can have their benefits too, often offering a far more complex array of controls. Some allow you to automate the blinds all over your home, and others work in tandem with smartphone apps and remotes, giving you the best of both worlds!
