Effortless style with remote control blinds

Wednesday, 22 December 2010 2:16 PM

Give your flat the wow factor and improve security with a new set of remote control blinds from Controliss. There’s no need to get tangled up with traditional cord blinds anymore as the new range of Roller, Venetian, Wood and Vertical blinds is available from just £46.

All blinds are made to fit the size of your windows and can even offer better security while you’re on holiday, as Controliss also sells a timer system, which can close the blinds automatically in the evenings, thus deterring burglars.

Each set is quick and easy to install straight from the box and the collection comes in a wide variety of finishes and colours to suit any home, including eco-impressions, handfinished basswood, contemporary metallic and special effect finishes.

Each blind has efficiently engineered components for smooth, reliable operation, and the remote control uses standard household batteries (AA or AAA), which come included.

Delivery is free on orders over £100 and all Controliss products come with a two year guarantee. For more information, visit: www.controlissblinds.co.uk
