Panel blinds as a stylish alternative to Vertical Blinds for large windows and as patio blinds

30
Maj

Today, I’m going to talk about an alternative to Vertical Blinds – stunning Panel Blinds!

Do you have a large window overlooking a fantastic view? Do you have a patio door?

Vertical blinds are a popular choice for covering large windows and patios because of the fact they can be drawn to one side so that so that large windows with views can be used as "picture windows" or so that people can walk in and out of patio doors.

Vertical blinds remain ever popular as they are cost effective and come in a variety of fabric colours and types. However, they are not to everyone’s tastes!

A great alternative to vertical blinds for large windows or patios are Panel Blinds.

Panel blinds are made up of up to 8 panels of fabric which run in channels on a discrete headrail. The panels slide along the headrail either one way, stacking to one side, or splitting in the middle and stacking on either side. This enables you to completely free up your window. There are two ways to control the blinds, either by cord or by using a wand.

Panel blinds can also be hung outside of the window or patio door recess so that the panels stack either side of the recess and don't take up any of the window/door space.

When closed the panels stand side by side with a slight overlap between panels, to create a full fabric screen.

You can buy vertical blinds online at great prices, from NewBlinds.co.uk. Panel Blinds are also available to buy online in a stunning range of fabrics.

Controlling Blinds with Samsung Smartthings

We're being asked rather a lot at the moment if it's possible to control our blinds using Smartthings by Samsung. Smartthings is a low(ish) cost home control system that is possible to configure yourself to control a number of compatible devices within the home. It is exclusively distributed through Amazon and Currys/PC World. It uses z-wave technology, but doesn't appear to support a great number of other products "out of the box". Therein lies the problem!
