Finding the perfect window coverings should always be a priority, whether you are kitting out your new home or refreshing your current one. Being able to choose a design that shows your creativity and positively impacts your room is essential. Duette® blinds are possibly something you haven’t heard of, but they are a great addition to any window.
‘Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows even with double glazing – duette shades can also significantly improve the acoustics in a room by reducing noise. The soft fabrics and air pockets in Duette® Shades help reduce annoying echoing from hard materials like glass, walls and hard flooring by up to 60%.’ Luxaflex.
Duette® blinds are different from their counterparts thanks to their structure and the practical benefits they bring to a home. This month, PeterJohn Interiors give you all the information you need about Duette® blinds, the array of colours and materials, and a host of benefits you will receive once they are installed.
Our homes are unique. Every home is different from layouts to colour palettes, fabrics, and appliances. So why should your duette blind choices all be the same? Duette® blinds come in a wide variety of styles and designs. Choose from patterns and textures to give your room the right feel, and pick a colour that will match perfectly and finish your space. Bring some colour to your room and make it pop with a bold splash of primary colours, or let your blinds settle into the background with a neutral colour and wonderful pattern. The options really are endless!
Not only are your Duette® blinds completely bespoke, but they can have different pleat sizes dependent on your space and design. Choose from 25mm, 32mm or 64mm pleat sizes so your window coverings stand out. Duette® blinds can also be operated in several ways, whether you want to manually control them or motorise them and let your blinds do the work for you. There really is no end to your blind creativity!
With the original honeycomb structure intended for window coverings, Duette® blinds offer practical benefits aside from their beautiful aesthetic look. Let’s take a look at the benefits you could add to your home.
A significant benefit of Duette® blinds is that they work for any space in your home. Whether you have bi-fold doors, awkward sized windows or windows at a greater height, when you choose these blinds, no window or door is out of the question!
Possibly the best feature of these blinds is their incredible energy efficiency. The unique honeycomb structure helps you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Even the manufacturing of Duette® blinds is energy-efficient, working with Architella fabric that comprises three insulating air layers or Eternity fabric made from 40% recycled post-consumer PET bottles.
Blinds are great for any room, but the sun can often sneak around corners and make its way into our spaces at the worse time. Duette® blinds include a handle, meaning that you can move your blinds as the sun moves and keep out any unwanted glare throughout the day.
Thanks to their unique design, Duette® shades could also help to reduce unwanted noise from outside and inside your home. This is because of the air pockets within the blind and their honeycomb structure.
Duette® blinds couldn’t be more straightforward to install. Choosing a TruFit design means adhesive strips stick to the glass, and the blinds run along wires. This means there is no need for drilling, and they can work great for tilt+turn windows and doors. If you are looking for blinds you can remove easily, why not consider a frame fix? As the frame fits without any drilling, they can be easily removed so you can still get to your windows to give them a clean. Only a light brushing is required to keep your blinds looking as good as new, but you can choose to handwash them or wipe them with a damp cloth if needed.
With many different models available, a choice of operations, freehold or tension, plus fabrics and colours, your Duette® blinds can be tailored to any room in your home. With sheer fabric on top and room-darkening fabric at the bottom, you can get the best of both worlds with your blinds.
