Blinds have been a staple of the interior decorating world for hundreds of years, dating back to the Roman Empire (That’s why Roman blinds are called that!) but like all things, they’ve slowly changed as technology evolved.
Blinds went from pieces of fabric held up by strings, to more modern designs like roller blinds and day & night blinds which use more modern mechanisms and use more intricate materials than more traditional blinds.
The evolution of blinds has continued to push forward and recently Electric blinds have came onto the scene and gained plenty of popularity. Rather than being operated by hand like old blinds, electric blinds can be operated remotely by apps, Smart Home technology and remote controls.
For the most part, modern electric blinds are adapted from roller blinds as they’re the easiest blinds to remotely control as they only move up and down, unlike other blinds like vertical or Venetian blinds as they can move in multiple directions.
Electric blinds being adapted from Roller also makes them incredibly easy to install, even a DIY novice should be able to install a roller blind in a matter of minutes and with an electric roller blind you the same stylist choices you’d have with a standard Roller blind, allowing you to choose from a wide array of colours and patterns!
All of this makes electric blinds an attractive proposition for homeowners! And that’s before you consider the fact that you can control your blinds from almost anywhere in your home without needing to stop what you’re doing, get up and manually adjust the blinds yourself.
This also makes electric blinds a life saver for people with mobility issues, like the elderly or disabled people, allowing them to have full control of their blinds without needing to overexert themselves, giving them back some level of control over their life.
