April and May have seen a typically English spring gearing up for, hopefully, a summer that will be warm and bright. Heavy showers, punctuated by spells of mediterranean-beating heat and sun have cast doleful shadows and bleaching, bright light in almost equal measures.
With such extremes, it can be hard to control the desired look and feel of any living space, no matter how creatively you have considered colour, finishes, flooring or lighting.
So, how can you ensure that you make the most of the available light when the weather is cloudy but still have the ability to control intense sunlight when the pressure rises and the sun makes an appearance?
Controliss battery powered and mains powered electric blinds allow instant control at the touch of a button, whatever the weather and however often it changes.
Whether you prefer the sumptuous, smooth or textured fabrics of Roman Blinds; the elegant sophistication of vertical blinds; the practical versatility of roller blinds; the contemporary minimalism of venetian blinds; or the natural or painted finishes of beautifully crafted wooden blinds, one touch wireless remote control is available across our extensive range and the inbuilt safety of cordless technology adds a reassuring piece of mind.
Rooms with multiple perspectives and windows are easily managed with simple remote controls that allow you to control single blinds, groups of blinds or timed automation.
Light is the biggest influencer of character for any given room and having control over its intensity allows you to define the personality of your living spaces.
Controliss battery powered and mains powered electric blinds are your perfect partner, allowing you to create the most comfortable environment for living or presenting the most inviting and welcoming home for entertaining.
We all have favourite films which we love to re-visit and once again, feel the magic and excitement we remember from the first viewing.
And the continued rise of TV technologies that promise home cinema experiences is constantly making this a more affordable and realistic proposition.
We recently experienced a demonstration of the latest Panasonic 4K UHD ‘DX’ series of televisions, featuring Ultra High Definition resolution, High Dynamic Range colour and contrast and Panasonic’s latest innovation: ‘tuned in Hollywood’.
The clever boffins at Panasonic have incorporated a picture technology which claims to have been tuned by Hollywood experts and as such, offers a picture performance that’s ‘True to the Director’s Vision’.
So, if you’ve ever dreamt of sinking into the dark, watery depths of The Abyss; cheating the alien atmosphere of Avatar; bringing the hills alive with The Sound of Music; or suffering the sensory turmoil of Hitchcock’s Vertigo, this new technology is the answer, right? Well, yes and no…
While we can’t argue with the picture quality of such TV’s, the true home cinema experience is something which relies, fundamentally, upon recreating the dark, atmospheric surroundings of a real cinema, where stray light isn't able to affect the image.
With Controliss battery powered and mains powered electric blinds, you can create exactly that, with the option of light-blocking blackout fabric available on a number of styles in our roller blinds, roman blinds or vertical blinds ranges.
And with the practicality and sophistication of superb one-touch wireless remote control operation, you will be able to create the perfect home cinema experience to enjoy yourself or impress guests.
