Forget fiddling about with tangled chords and chains, the advanced infrared and radio frequency technology of electric blinds allows you to adjust them at the touch of a button, from anywhere in your home. Perfect for hard-to-reach places and ensuring child and pet safety, remote control blinds give you ultimate control over your whole surroundings.
These mounted heating blocks are becoming showpiece numbers in their own right. Choosing a shade and style to match your room allows you to make an artistic statement, while keeping cosy at the same time.
Good lighting is about altering perceptions of light and space, enhancing features and creating different moods. Clever control systems can now link up
selected lamps and other light sources, allowing the all-important dimmer switch to manage the ambience of the scene, whatever the atmosphere you’re trying to create.
