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.
2017 Is seen as being the year when many of us will tackle home improvements by starting with new flooring solutions.
Typically, flooring is an expensive means to make a design statement, though the range of colours and fabrics available using carpet, or the hard wearing and sophisticated qualities of laminates, can create a wonderful sense of adventure, sumptuous comfort, or elegant durability.
But no matter how much you like that certain shade of purple, would you really be brave enough to have a purple floor?
So, what do you do if you have a yearning to be more daring with colour but don’t want to commit to the permanency and room-wide implications of flooring?
Controliss battery powered and mains powered electric blinds are available in a wide range of bold, vibrant colours across roller blinds, roman blinds, wooden blinds, vertical blinds and venetian blinds.
We have colours, materials and finishes to suit and compliment any room and the added luxury feel and sophistication of powered blinds will help you create an elegant and charming atmosphere in spaces large or small.
And with British summertime just around the corner, the warming light that accompanies it will give depth and vibrancy to any colour. Use colour on a blind and it will allows you to vary its impact - partially raise to give a subtle boost to light, clean, contemporary spaces; fully lower to present a striking personality that defines the mood of a room and those within it.
Remember, too, that Controliss battery powered and mains powered electric blinds can still satisfy a desire for fabric or real wood accents if you’ve already committed to the new flooring trend.
We have a luxurious range of hand sewn in the UK, electric Roman blinds that will compliment soft floor coverings and add warmth.
Alternatively, our range of beautifully crafted, made to measure electric wooden blinds in painted or stained Satinwood can echo the stylish and practical hues of on-trend laminate or solid wood floors.
