As an automated blinds expert, I've been here many times before. Lovely big patio or bi-fold doors need lovely big blinds. You don't want to interupt the flow of the expanse of glass by introducing multiple blinds accross a single span. And of course, because it's newly refurbished with all smart tech elsewhere in the house - Alexa, Hive, Phillips Hue, the client would like electric blinds.
Perfect, but for an expanse this wide you would need mains powered blinds, right?
It used to be a common issue that at the end of a refurb project, customers would look at their wide windows, consider blinds, and then realise after discussing with an blind automation expert that they hadn't planned in any mains power or cabling to the window recess. This used to be a real issue, which could only be over come by breaking down a span of say 3 metres width, to a couple of blinds. Or if that span was made up of multiple panes, then 3 x 1 metre wide windows.
It always turned out fine in the end. Automated blinds, regardless of the configuration provide that "wow" factor to finish off any home refurbishment.

We're always on the look out for new blind technology and this filled a real gap for us in our offering - solving the issue of how to motorise those larger blinds where mains power is not readily available.
