Should I Get Electric Blinds?

Since the invention of the first set of blinds in 1769, they have grown more and more popular over the years, making them the go-to option above curtains in modern homes.

Blinds have allowed homeowners to let more light into their homes while maintaining privacy. Electric blinds used to be a luxurious addition to any house, however, there are now many more budget-friendly options that are quick and easy to install yourself at home, which create a high end, impressive look for any room.

If you’re considering whether electric blinds are the best choice for improving your home’s appearance, there are a number of factors to take into account, after all, it’s not all about looks! Obviously, electric blinds are great time savers, you can move every blind in your house using a remote control, saving precious minutes each morning from not having to run about the house opening each set individually. They also come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and colours to fit into any area of your home.

Electric blinds have so many ways of making your life just that little bit easier, another advantage to having them installed is that they can be connected to your phone, allowing you to control how your home appears to the outside world whilst you are away from it. There is nothing more stressful than going on holiday, but with the help of electric blinds and timed smart-home lighting, no one will ever know you’re not there, this gives you one less thing to think about.

What we love most about these blinds, is they are a much safer option for families with young children or pets as there are no pull cords. Pull cords can be very dangerous, so if you are looking to install any style of blinds into a child’s bedroom, do not allow the cord to hang loose.

Why Choose Electric Blinds?

You may worry about how having another electrical device in your home may have negative effects on the environment, however, with electric blinds the power use is extremely minimal when used correctly. The blinds are also great at helping to keep your home insulated, therefore minimising your central heating usage, which can reduce your energy bills overall. 

You may wish to time your electric blinds to close during set times, if you know at 3pm every day you get a blast of the sun through the living room window, set the blinds to close for an hour or so around this time, this will reduce the risk of any fabric fading on your furniture and flooring, prolonging the life of your interior decor.

By having electric blinds installed in your home, they can help provide major lifestyle benefits by improving your sleep quality. There is nothing better than being gently woken up by rays of sun beaming through the window. This is a sought-after way of being awake that there is a growing market of sunlight impersonating alarm clocks, but nothing beats the real thing! Similarly, if you struggle winding down at the end of the day, having your blinds closed at a certain time each evening can help you to engage in a more relaxing and structured bedtime routine.
