The unexpected benefits of blinds

Mon 27 Nov 2017 Jordan Harling

We all know blinds are good for keeping out the sunlight. We all know that they can make your windows looking stunning. But there are many other benefits of blinds that are often overlooked, such as…

UV filtering

The sun is a giant ball of burning gas that constantly bombards us with rays of light – some of which we can see and we love, some of which we can’t and slowly harms us. When it comes to blinds we always think about our good friend visible light and whether or not we want to let him in. But that invisible light, UV light, is sneakier and we always forget about it. Fortunately our blinds don’t. They filter out the harmful rays so you can rest easy.

Automating your home

How often do you draw your curtains? It’s a minor hassle isn’t it – having to get up, walk over to them, and pull them together. Somehow it always seems to be necessary at the worst time possible as well. You just start getting into your favourite TV program and the twilight outside starts to glare on your screen. Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem and it comes in the form of motorised blinds. With a simple press of a button you can raise and lower your blinds, without having to take your eyes off the TV.

Adding a layer of sound proofing

LOUD NOISES! They’re everywhere and sometimes you want a nice bit of peace and quiet. Sure you can make sure everything is silent in your house, but there’s not much you can do about those arguing neighbours next door or those workmen outside, the ones who have decided to turn on their pneumatic drill for the very first time.

Well that’s not quite true – you can invest in some high quality window furnishings. Because guess where most of your noise leaks in from, that’s right – your windows (unless you’ve got a giant hole in your wall, in which case why are you reading this, go sort your hole out!). Blinds absorb and block some sound from coming in from the outside. Helping you to get that rest and relaxation that you deserve.

Regulating heat

If you live or work with anyone other than your biological clone, I’m sure you know the joys of heat regulation. It’s always seems to be too hot, but the thermostat is knocked down by just one degree then it’s suddenly it’s time for the arctic jackets. Blinds, especially those with a thermal backing, could provide the solution to this problem and hopefully also be the saviour of your sanity.
Much like sound, heat finds its way in and out of your home through your windows. But, if you have a blind in the way, you can keep the cold out and the heat in during the winter, and the heat out and the cool in during the summer. Ensuring that your home stays at the right temperature all year round.

Saving the planet

We care about the planet, it’s where we live after all. Much like our own homes we want to keep the planet in the best possible shape. We know how stressful it can be moving house, we don’t want to even imagine the hassle of moving planet. That’s why we try and make our blinds as sustainably and ecologically friendly as possible. The environmental benefits of blinds go further than the sourcing and manufacturing processes though. With their ability to regulate heat they can also reduce the need for heating your home and thus the need for burning fuel.

Increasing the value of your home

Few pieces of furniture have a significant and immediate impact on the value of your home. Putting a picture frame on the wall might make your home look a little nicer and more likely to sell, it won’t add thousands on to your selling price though. Shutters on the other hand, can increase your house’s value immediately. With their timeless design and durable build they’re seen by many as a worthy long-term investment.

More than just fabric or slats to block out light, blinds offer a range of benefits to your home. So why not take a look at our offerings and find one that’s perfect for you.
