The simplicity of motorised blinds and curtains

Motorised blinds can be programmed to move together or individually

To some the idea of having electric blinds may seem very…Bond. At the mere flip of a switch a wall of fabric moves slowly to reveal…your garden. However, it is actually much easier, useful and affordable than you may think with prices starting at just and additional £179 to motorise a blind.

Industry leaders Somfy have recently introduced a new battery powered motor, the Sonnesse 30WF RTS, which quietly operates your roman or roller blind with no need for wiring at the window or an electrician. The batteries sit neatly within the roll requiring no additional space for battery packs. It looks just like a regular blind so you can simply leave it in place when plugging it in to recharge – every 9-12 months as needed.

We’re seeing an increase in the demand for motorisation as customers are looking for:

  • Simultaneous control of multiple curtains and/or blinds on the same window or on multiple windows in the same room
  • Easy control of blinds or curtains in hard to reach places
  • Minimalist design with the clean lines of blinds uninterrupted by hanging chains
  • Child safety with no cords or chains
  • Programmed or remote control of window treatments via smartphone
  • A great way to make it look like you’re home even when you’re away

Come in to one of our 5 London showrooms and ask our Designers what would work for your windows.
