These 17 extra-long battery life blinds were fitted at a stunning modern property in Mildenhall, Marlborough, Wiltshire. Our client had lots of glazing throughout the property, with some rooms having two or three windows, so wireless blinds were the best choice for ease of installation. The translucent blind fabric allows light to flood into the living areas while also providing privacy. In the bedrooms, gym and cinema room, blackout fabric was used to block out all the light.
Our wireless battery blinds are powered using simple household D-cell batteries that can last up to five years based on an average use of four movements per day. The batteries are housed within the roller barrel, so no mains power is required, and they are simple to replace. They are also incredibly straightforward to fit, which is ideal when you have multiple windows per room, like in this property.
If you want privacy without blocking out all of the light, translucent blind fabric, like what we have used at this property, is ideal. As you can see, the coverage is very good, but just enough light filters through to ensure the room isn’t too dark during the day. We have a variety of semi-transparent electric blind materials with varying degrees of transparency and opaqueness from 1% to 5%.
