How To Choose Motorised Blinds In Singapore?
Motorised blinds are one way of decorating and automating a house. They are
remote controlled blinds that open and close by use of an electrical system..
They save one the effort, time that is spent closing, and opening blinds. They
can be used both at residential houses and for commercial use such as in media
houses. They come in different designs and colours. The choice to buy a specific
type must be guided by several considerations.|
Blinds must complement the look of the whole room. Most people in Singapore love
bright colours for their houses. However, one could spice up the room by having
a mix of colours more so the complementing ones. There are so may unique colours
for one to choose from. Formal colours may be used in commercial places. For
residential houses, it is great having flowery flow of colours.
Mode of opening
Secondly, one could go for blinds that open upwards, single opening or dual
opening. Those that open upwards are ideal for small windows. They are efficient
in small spaces and create a feeling of more room. For a very large window, a
dual blind would do best. This is because it could allow one to blinds both
extremes and be left with the central part. This is relevant to media houses
that may need to control lighting into a room.
Safety is one of the major considerations to residential house user. Where the
room has children and pets, it is advisable to choose a brand that has child
safety features. This would prevent strangling and children getting stuck in the
blinds. Several brands have added children safety features. It is advisable to
ask the same at the selling outlet.
The amount of light one would like to filter by use of blinds also affects the
choice of a blind. One may wish to have a total blind or filter light to some
level. One could filter too much light to the required level. This is practical
on a very sunny day or in media houses and studios. One should then choose a
type that offers the specific desired features.
One needs to know how the blind would be set up. Such requirements as source of
power, wiring, mounting and control are important considerations. It is good to
know the power rating and other electrical equipment that needs to be bought
alongside the blind. The choice would be based on ease of use, low power
consumption and good performance
Installation and Maintenance
Most outlets will include the cost of installation in their quote. There are
types that one might install for himself or herself. However, it is advisable to
have an electrician install for you. Like any other electrical installation,
motorised blinds need periodic maintenance. One should ask the seller the
estimated cost and intervals of periodic maintenance. This should be factored as
part of the overall cost.
The price of a particular type would also come into play. Motorised blinds come
with prices ranging from the cheap to premium priced brands. Depending on set
budget, one should check the blind that takes into consideration all of the
above at a cost effective price.
