Smart home technology is an effective investment that is guaranteed to add that luxury feel to any dwelling. By installing home automation systems, homeowners can control various aspects of their property, from lighting and heating to their entertainment systems and appliances at the touch of a button on a remote or smartphone app with ease. The number of smart homes globally is forecasted to grow and surpass 350 million by 20231, and many homeowners are looking for ways to adopt smart technologies to create a more luxury and convenient abode.
A popular choice for those wanting to begin installing technology as part of their smart home plans are motorised blind systems. Motorised blinds offer more control over light saturation within the home, as well as offering benefits like easier room temperature management, heightened security, and of course the chance to install blinds in those hard-to-reach spaces. Motorised blinds are a cost effective and easy way to completely transform your home.

Director at BlindsbyPost, Oliver Hudson shares his expert comments on how to use blinds to create a futuristic and luxury home.
The use of smart technology in homes is increasing and is set to grow a further 17% by 20234. Motorised blinds are perfect for tech-savvy homes and are a real talking point.
They can be raised and closed at the touch of a button on a remote, or voice activated through a home assistant, including Amazon Alexa and Google Home. BlindsbyPost’s electric roller blinds use the latest Somfy technology, and unlike traditional blinds, no wires or cords are on show, creating a more chic look.
As well as looking more sleek, motorised blinds are available in 58 colours from BlindsbyPost. Extra large sizes are also available, meaning no matter what the size of your space you can find the right product for your home, even for luxury bifold doors or statement window spaces. They are powered by a simple remote which is fully rechargeable and a wire free motor to effortlessly lift and lower your blind at a moment that suits you.
Oliver Hudson commented: “Bifold doors have experienced significant growth over the past couple of years, thanks to the requirements for better insulation and heat retention. They also require minimum changes in the architecture of a building to maximise the available space. We wanted to create a product which would not only integrate with people’s smart hubs, but also cover a wide area such as bifold doors.
“The battery powered, electric motors mean there are no unsightly wires, and customers can choose from a wide range of extra wide fabric choices to perfectly match their style. From those looking to keep out the sun’s heat across bi-fold doors to people who simply want to add some privacy to a large bedroom window, motorised extra large roller blinds are the perfect solution.”
Motorised blinds are available in roman, wooden or Venetian styles so you can choose the perfect blind to match your style, as well as protecting your privacy when needed. Not only that, but motorised blind products help you keep the room at the optimum temperature. It’s a great way to modernise your windows while creating a luxury feel.
