Motorised Curtains: The Functional, Fashionable Solution For Just About All Areas


Are electric curtain rails just unattractive and loud alternatives to regular curtains? We take a look at how stylish designs are now a fundamental element of the electric curtain tracks, which makes them both visually pleasing and remarkably practical.

Curtains really are a discrete yet crucial part of the design of any property, room or workplace. Either small or large, windows supply space, light and view. They tend to be the speediest and most straightforward methods by which we change the spaces in which we live; a basic lounge may go from a bright and welcoming place, providing fantastic views and daylight, to a much more private and protected setting, close and warm where we may share the early evenings along with those we love. Motorised curtain rails help to make these changes all the easier, providing luxury and comfort at the press of a switch.

You are able to recreate that unique cinema sense by having your curtain system connected with your home entertainment system. You are able to bring down the lights on your own cinematic experience without having to leave the ease and comfort of your sofa.

Electric curtain rails are also just the thing for the less able bodied, for whom physically drawing curtains can be a frequent challenge. A remote control can give back some self-reliance to individuals who are significantly less mobile; they will not be reliant on other people to allow sunlight in first thing each day, or to hide the glare throughout the day time.

Even for the able-bodied, inaccessible windows might be a real health and safety problem. Remote or switch operated electric curtains eliminate the necessity for leaning over obstructions, or to get up on seating to reach higher windows. How many times have we all fallen off while trying to tug a curtain closed? Or accidentally pulled down a railing as we lean across a settee in an effort to have a better grip? Electric curtains eliminate the requirement for these daily gymnastics and keep you - as well as your curtains! - safer.

Light-sensitive systems lend both practicality and security. Amongst getting the youngsters prepared for school, making breakfast and all the other daily strains, light-sensitive curtains can make things that little bit simpler by ensuring there are bright rooms and open views to invite you in. 

When combined with timed lighting, light-sensitive systems can be an excellent deterrent against criminals as well as other intruders. With the curtains set to open and close when the lighting reaches certain levels, your windows can give an effect of habitation even when you or the family are out of the house for weeks at a time. Even the most foolhardy of burglars will reconsider entering an apparently lived in house.

And all this convenience and protection does not need to mean reducing style or aesthetics. The tracks are visually simple and the motors can be concealed behind the curtain ends themselves. Standard curtain hooks work with motorised rails, so demand no special restrictions on your choice of curtains. Neither is their application restricted to straight windows; the tracks and poles are made to measure and can be bent to suit bay windows if necessary.

Many of us are interested in creating our perfect environment, and motorised curtain rails can provide luxury, atmosphere, practicality, protection and aesthetics. The systems are available from retailers across the UK and online.
