Motorised Blackout Blinds

As Seen on TV

When Susan and Drachan’s extended home in Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire was featured on Channel 4’s Double Your House for Half the Money, the presenter Sarah Beeny offered the couple a valuable piece of advice. she showed them an example of a pleated blind and said the room would be transformed if similar shading were installed.

The couple searched long and hard, but were unable to find a company with the expertise to fit motorised blinds into a gable window.

“We did lots of research,” says Susan, “but were unable to find anyone who could do it until we learned about Grants.”

The Grants team installed Honeycell pleated blinds in a Newmarket fabric with blackout Pointing.

Susan says: “The installation process was perfect – professional, clean, quick and tidy – and the result has transformed the bedroom. The blackout blinds are fantastic. We can block out all the light at night and just climb under the duvet and chill. Or we can choose to lower the blinds using the remote control and enjoy the view of the garden or the stars at night.”

Susan also likes the way the blinds frame the room. she says: “People walk into the room now and it has the wow factor. curtains in particular can take over a room somehow, but the blinds are amazing; they make the room.

“I would also say that people shouldn’t be scared of automated blinds. They are so easy to operate and everything is so neat and tidy.”
