Automatic Motorised Interior Blinds & Curtains

But the ability to automate them is truly exciting – and you will be amazed at how often you adjust them when it is so easy. Automating control of your blinds or curtains is the simplest way to change how you use your space; quite simply, it changes how you live.Whatever your design preference – curtains, venetian blinds, roller blinds, roman (or pleated) blinds – they can be operated individually or as a group, and there is a wide range of fabric options to suit every home.
With Somfy motorised blinds and curtains, there is no need for unsightly cords and chains as is the case with a manual system. A young family will enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing there is no chance of children becoming tangled in these dangerous cords.

Awnings give you the flexibility to temporarily protect areas from the sun without the commitment or cost of a permanent structure.
Combining the sleek and attractive awning with the ability to expand or retract it at the touch of a button ensures it will be well used.
Awnings are available in a seemingly endless array of fabrics and there are many options to prioritise – weather-proofing, UV-resistance, strength, durability, shade provision and aesthetics all come into play. The awnings come in three styles – Folding arm awning, Semi-cassette awning and Full-cassette awning.
To enjoy your evenings outdoors lighting and heating can also be incorporated with the ability to be turned on and off via remote control, and can also be set to a timer. Lighting can also be incorporated into gardens or paths, making the space even more versatile. Your Style Consultant will help you make the right choice for your outdoor space.
