I’m not much of a morning person, I never want to wake up and it takes me quite a while to come around. I need black out blinds to get a decent night sleep, but waking up in a dark room does not help my morning woes, so, I decided to try electric blinds from Order Electric Blinds*. I loved the idea of opening my blinds while lying in bed, giving me time to wake up in natural light and enjoy the views while contemplating starting my day.
The blinds are made to measure and come in a range of colours and designs. Installation is straight forward and pretty similar to installing a regular roller blind, just with the addition of fitting an extra two screws for the power pack to attach to and an additional screw if you choose to wall mount the handset. We decided not to mount the handset, preferring to keep it as a portable remote to sit on the bedside cabinet of whoever will be up first in the morning. Usually mine.
As well as providing the perfect option for a good nights sleep and a natural wake up, the electric black out blinds are child friendly as they have no cords, just a simple remote with up, down and stop.
The blinds look great and aren’t at all clumpy, fitting as naturally into the space as any manual blind.
Now I just need one of those coffee maker alarm clocks and maybe I’ll become a morning person…
