Blinds give in­su­la­tion, se­cu­rity

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Win­ter is com­ing and with it an on­slaught of cold weather so in­su­late your home with blinds made of unique tech­nol­ogy, sup­plied by Cur­tain Cre­ations.

Ther­macell blinds trap the air by the win­dow in a cell and warm it up, ex­plains Cur­tain Cre­ations owner/op­er­a­tors Alexis and Rob Drake.

Their Mata­mata busi­ness of­fers two types of Ther­macell blinds. The translu­cent type is the equiv­a­lent of hav­ing four inches of a pink batt and the block-out blind is the equiv­a­lent of a five inch pink batt in the win­dow and also pro­vides min­i­mal light gaps.

Both types pro­vide great pri­vacy and are the most cost ef­fec­tive blinds of their kind on the mar­ket. The Ther­macell blinds can also come with­out cords, great for chil­dren’s safety.

Cur­tain Cre­ations of­fer many op­tions with mo­torised blinds. The pre­ferred op­tion is to have them hard wired or, if that’s not avail­able, you can use Q Mo­tion by Lux­aflex. Th­ese are a unique bat­tery op­er­ated op­tion with a five year bat­tery life. Both op­tions can be con­trolled by a re­mote key­pad or iPhone so with­out even be­ing in the home, you can draw the blinds and know you are com­ing home to a warm house.

One of the benefits of mo­torised blinds is that they can be pro­grammed to close be­fore it gets dark and open in the morn­ing which is good for se­cu­rity when you are away on hol­i­day, as it gives the per­cep­tion that some­one is at home.

Win­ter is not only a cold time of year but can also be quite dreary. Thank­fully Cur­tain Cre­ations can make your in­te­rior bright and new with just a few colour­ful ac­ces­sories.

Alexis says it can be as sim­ple as buy­ing a few cush­ions in in­ter­est­ing colours and tex­tures and a floor rug or a lamp or re­uphol­ster­ing a bed­room chair, all of which Cur­tain Cre­ations can do.

The cou­ple said they trans­formed one client’s bed­room through a new bed­spread.

The cre­ative com­pany stocks a huge range of de­sign­ers in­clud­ing Designer Guild, Har­lequin, Hemptech and just re­cently started stock­ing an Auck­land designer’s work, Diva In­ter­na­tional.

Wall­pa­pers are a big trend at the mo­ment, and Cur­tain Cre­ations has plenty of those in their show­room too. So if you are look­ing for in­spi­ra­tion with in­te­rior, call in and chat with the friendly team at Cur­tain Cre­ations.

Rob and Alexis Drake not only sell, and in­stall, Ther­macell blinds, they also stock wall­pa­per, cush­ions, cur­tains, fires and can re­uphol­ster fur­ni­ture.

The hon­ey­comb con­struc­tion of Ther­macell blinds traps air and cre­ates a bar­rier be­tween the ex­te­rior and in­te­rior of the home.
