What are the benefits of electric blinds?

Blinds can make a massive difference to the overall look and feel of a room, delivering a modern and stylish finish as well as the practicalities of controlling the amount of natural light that comes in or even the amount of heat that can escape.

Combining the convenience of the latest technologies with modern designs and beautiful materials, electric blinds provide homeowners with all of the advantages of manual blinds but with so many additional benefits.

Here we take a look at just some of the reasons why you should consider electric blinds for your next window coverings.


One of the top features of electric blinds is that they are extremely convenient. All of your blinds can be controlled and operated with a remote control or via an app on your smart device meaning that you don’t even have to get up to open or close them.

Now whilst this might sound like an ‘unnecessary luxury’ it is actually extremely practical for a number of situations. For people who work from home and need stop the glare on their computer in the middle of a call, or for older homeowners who struggle physically to reach and close multiple blinds throughout the day.

You can also set timers for when you want them to open or close so that you can rise with the sun in the morning if you so wish.


Unfortunately, corded blinds can be a hazard for pets and children who can become tangled, making them a real potential danger in the home. Electric blinds have no cord, strings or chains which makes them an incredibly safe option for all rooms in the house and can give complete peace of mind to people with children and pets.

Hard to reach windows

For windows high up or in hard-to-reach areas, electric blinds are the ideal solution that allows you to cover the window but still be able to open and close the blind at the touch of a button. These are particularly helpful for windows that have the kitchen sink positioned in front of them, Velux windows, skylights and even conservatories.


This might sound odd but electric blinds are actually a great additional security feature for when you are away from your home either at work or on holiday.

You can set timers on them to automatically open and close at various points throughout the day which can make it look like people are home and act as a strong deterrent for potential intruders.

Compatible with multiple styles

Electric blinds are compatible with most styles, so you have plenty to choose from including roller, pleated, vertical, cellular, wooden, honeycomb, slat, accordion, roman or Venetian blinds. 

This means that you are not limited by colour, style or fabric when it comes to selecting the perfect electric blinds for any room in the house.

Energy efficiency

Households across the UK are gripped with concern about the rising energy bills and are looking for ways to become more energy efficient. Windows are one of the main areas that heat escapes from a property and electric blinds are great for covering and insulating them to help reduce the amount of heat loss.

You can also help to retain heat in the home by having them set to automatically open and close at certain times of the day. You could for example have them open when you wake in the morning to allow in the natural sunlight whilst you are getting ready for work etc and then you can have them set to close again later in the day if it is cold or darker to help contain the heat. This is a great way to maximise the energy efficiency of your home without you having to try to remember or run around constantly closing and opening your blinds.
