Style Privacy and Convenience Remote Control Window Blinds

The choice of styles, materials and even colours in today’s range of window blinds is astonishing. Six types of wood, from Cedarwood to Basswood, not to mention metal (aluminium) and even plastic options, as many as 60 different colours and a custom colour option and styles that include plantation shutters, venetian blinds and roller blinds – window blinds offer a wealth of opportunity for enhancing your home or office.

Now, though, you can add convenience to the list of advantages offered by window blinds with the option of remote control!

Yes, you can now have blinds installed that can be adjusted automatically by a remote control – so if your blinds are installed in your lounge or living room you would not have to get up and open them if you required more light or close them if it was privacy you were after.

The remote control option for window blinds and shutters is integrated right into the panels and provide almost silent operation with a smooth motion from the built in motors.

If you have several panels installed across, for example, a set of patio doors or one large window then the remote control option allows you to control all of the panels at once or individual panels, offering total control. With several pre-set louvre angles, all controlled via a ‘magic eye’ and individual motors in each panel, total control and convenience is huge benefit of choosing remote control window blinds.

Because of the design of the remote control blinds, the most common material used is wood, such as Cedarwood, Larchwood, Basswood and Hybrid Basswood. These woods are highly durable and resistant to damage, making them ideal for having motors and sensors installed in the panels for remote control operation.

Remote control shutters are the ideal option for windows that are inaccessible or for large runs of windows.

Inaccessible windows could include those that have furniture in front of them or high windows that would require a step or ladder to reach. Remote control window blinds and shutters make life much easier. The inconvenience of having to adjust a long run of window blinds one by one by hand is also removed by the use of remote control – as has already been said, all the panels can be controlled at once.

With large windows or inaccessible windows curtains are often the preferred choice as they provide a much easier way to shut out light and provide privacy (not to mention being easier to open!), but they provide only open or closed choices. Remote control window blinds provide far greater versatility with that ability to control individual panels and having pre-set angles for the louvers – another great benefit over using curtains.

In many homes, the window blind option is also far more aesthetically pleasing than a curtain. The range of styles in wooden window blinds and shutters is large and by using wood you can introduce a range of colours or stains that will match or even enhance your existing décor.

The next time you’re thinking of decorating a room in your home or office, remember to consider wooden window blinds – and that there is a remote control option that might just tip the balance for those large or inaccessible windows!
