A Guide To Buying Window Shutters

September 24th, 2015

The interior trend for plantation shutters continues to gather pace. It’s now one of the top four best-selling products from Apollo Blinds, quickly catching up ever-popular roller blinds, verticals and venetians.

Although quite uniform in appearance: not all shutters are the same and there are quite a few considerations when it comes to buying shutters; when it comes to cost, style, materials and finish.

Here’s the Apollo Blinds’ buyer’s guide to shutters, for helping homeowners to make the right choice for their requirements and budget.

“The Rolls Royce of Shutters” – Real Wood Shutters

There is undoubtedly something special about top quality hard wood. Homeowners looking for top of the range made-to-measure shutters will enjoy the benefits of real wood plantation shutters – a luxurious investment for the home; they exude sophistication and are incredibly hardwearing.

A buyers guide to window blinds

Hard wood options such as Apollo’s Custom West Phoenix shutter (£365 pm2) made from a light, eco-friendly timber are ideal for tier on tier shutter installations.

Or the Carolina, made with a robust Forestry Stewardship Certified Paulinia wood, starts from £398 pm2 and is available in a wide range of painted, stained or custom colour finishes (at an additional charge).

While the affordable Boston range is crafted from mixed hardwood panels and MDF frames.  Available in a choice of five white finishes, prices start from £331pm2.

For more choice on colour, homeowners can’t go wrong with the Boston Premium range, which comes in a range of neutral colours including grey, black, white and cream.  Custom colours can be created at an extra charge.

Added bonuses: Modern and period homes often come with unusual shaped windows that can be awkward to dress. Real wood shutters can be customised to fit almost any shape and size of window, no matter how quirky. So for those looking to make their windows a centre piece – shutters will do just that.

Natural wood shutter frames can be made to fit inside the recess of a window or on the outside.

Is there a drawback? Typically hard wood shutters need time to be made-to-measure, so allow a three-month lead time. So hard wood shutter need to be ordered by mid-October for delivery before Christmas.

Although it has many benefits, timber is not best suited to rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms that are prone to damp so a UPVC shutter may be a better option here.

Plastic Fantastic – The numerous benefits of UPVC: water resistant, durable, won’t warp or fade

While top quality wood can justify its price tag, homeowners have got the option of a most ‘cost effective’ wood and can get the look for less with faux wood/MDF shutters, to the untrained eye, it’s not easy to spot the difference!

Apollo’s Seattle MDF shutters are polymer coated making them tough and durable; ideal for high traffic areas around the home such as children’s bedrooms.  Available in five shades of white, they come with the added bonus that they will never need repainting.

Alternatively, and available in a wide range of stunning painted colours, the Georgia range is hybrid construction of MDF panels combined with plastic louvres to enhance their durability.

Prices start from £250pmfor MDF / Faux Wood shutters from Apollo Blinds.

Plastic Fantastic – The numerous benefits of UPVC: water resistant, durable, won’t warp or fade  

While top quality wood can justify its price tag, homeowners have the option of a more ‘cost effective’ wood and can get the look for less with UPVC shutters; to the untrained eye, it’s not easy to spot the difference!


UPVC shutters are by far the best option for kitchens and bathrooms alike, the plastic won’t warp, fade or split in damp areas and they are water resistant and easy to dry on the exterior, therefore making them less likely to develop issues with mildew or mould.

Prices start from £386pm² for UPVC Lifestyle vinyl shutters and they’re available in six shades of white – cotton, pearl and vanilla. They can be installed within just four weeks following an in home design consultation and measuring service.

Apollo’s Lifestyle shutter range is water and fade resistant and products come with a 25 year guarantee.  These shutters are all still made-to-measure.

Alternatively the ABS Hollywood collection is created from closed cell composite technology and is completely waterproof. Hollywood shutters are also fitted with a stainless steel hinge which will not rust. Prices start at £365pm².

Drawbacks: The waterproof material comes in fours shades of white but cannot be custom coloured.

So what about style? A buyer’s guide to shutter terminology!

Louvered panels vs. Solid Panels

Louvered panels have horizontal slats that are angled to admit light and air, but to keep out direct sunshine and noise.

Best for: versatile louvered panels are suited to all rooms.

Louvres are available in a choice of five different slat sizes.

Design tip: the width of louvre should always reflect the proportions of both the window and the room.

Tilt options: the tilt rod can run down the centre of the shutter or be offset to one side to give it a cleaner look. For a completely uninterrupted view of the shutter opt for ‘Easy Tilt’ – simply lift or lower one of the louvres and the rest will follow suit.
Solid panels cover the window with a panel but can be opened or folded back to allow light in.

Best for: drafty period properties.

Tier on tier vs. Café style

Tier on Tier: Two panels operate independently of each other to offer full control over light and privacy.  Best for: bedrooms and bathrooms.

Café Style – Panels are fitted to offer privacy at the lower half of the window only enabling light to flood through the top. Best for: providing privacy in urban areas.

Other shutter options

Full height – panels cover the full height of the window.  Best for: French or patio doors.

Tracked – slide on a track to concertina back. Best for: larger windows and sliding doors.

Shaped – Bespoke panels for awkward shaped windows.  Best for: unusual shaped windows.

Win One of Five Ostrich Feather Dusters

August 10th, 2015

If you want to keep your blinds looking clean and bright then you need the right tools for the job.

It has been proven that an ostrich feather duster is far superior to other (cheaper) types of duster.

Not only do they have magnetic properties, meaning they resist static electricity, the tiny barbules on the ostrich feathers act as fingers to collect dust, which makes them much more effective. Rather than pushing the dust away and flipping it into the air, an ostrich-down duster will attract dust and hold onto it until you shake it free to vacuum later.  The feathers can also be washed in warm soapy water, rinsed and air dried.

When used for domestic cleaning, an ostrich feather duster will last for years, which makes them exceptional value.

Ostrich-down dusters are perfect for cleaning all types of blinds, especially wooden ones, and due to their anti-static qualities, they work a treat on fancy light fittings and electronics too.

Sounds good?  Well luckily we have five superb ostrich feather dusters to give away.

How to clean your window blinds

August 3rd, 2015

white pleated

A lovely set of made-to-measure blinds can really make a room, but it’s important to take good care of them in order to keep them looking their best.

We’ve put together our top tips on how to make sure your blinds stay just like new.

1)    Know your blinds

First and foremost it’s important to learn as much as you can about your blinds (Apollo Blinds provides an aftercare document with every purchase that has tips on how to care for your blinds). Always check with the manufacturer before embarking on a cleaning spree as, for example, some blinds are washable, where others can’t withstand any water.

2)    Little and often

As with everything, regular housekeeping is a must to ensure your blinds stay looking smart.  A little cleaning (done often) will limit the need for a major face-lift, which can be awkward and time consuming.

    Armed for cleaning

There are some tools that you may not have thought of, which are perfectly suited for sprucing up your blinds:

Baby wipes – Super soft and non-abrasive, baby wipes are not just for little ones, they work wonders with cords or tapes on Venetian blinds too.

Ostrich feather dusters – the tiny barbules on the ostrich feathers act as fingers to collect dust without leaving static electricity behind, perfect for wooden blinds.

Micro fibre cloths – lint free and gentle, it is claimed that micro fibre cloths are up to four times more effective than normal cloths.

4)    You must dust (really you must)

 Yes, there are a million other things you could be doing, but giving your blinds the weekly once-over will stop dust building up and limit the potential for stains and dirty marks, which are trickier to remove.

5)    Deep cleaning

Vacuum your blinds every couple of months using the upholstery attachment of your cleaner. About twice a year you will need to give them a more thorough going over. Gently rub them from end to end with a micro fibre cloth.

6)    Avoid chemical nasties

Warm water and a mild detergent should be sufficient for most types of window blind as harsh chemicals can damage delicate material.  Be careful not to drench your blinds as this can cause discolouration and distort wooden blinds. A mixture of 25% white vinegar and 75% water can help to remove heavier dirt and stains.

So that’s it, you’re on your way to a bright and gleaming set of window blinds.

Ten Ways to Keep Your Home Safe Whilst You’re On Holiday

July 21st, 2015

It’s the time of year where we jet off to far-away places and escape the worries of day-to-day life. The safety of your house should be the last thing on your mind as you relax by the pool, so made-to-measure blinds specialist Apollo Blinds has put together its top tips on how you can keep your home safe whilst you’re on holiday.

Holiday snap1) Don’t Broadcast

Be honest. Would you trust everyone on your social media feed with your most valuable possessions?

We all want to share our holiday snaps but if you want to protect your home when you’re abroad then keep the social media posts of you on the beach to a minimum.

Once you have published something on social media, it is in the public domain, meaning you no longer have control over who sees it. Try to resist checking into the airport or hotel with Facebook or flooding your news feed with excited status updates about when you are leaving the country. If you must share then keep it vague and don’t give away details of your travel dates, where you are going or how long you will be away.

And whilst you’re being careful in the virtual world, it’s also an idea to watch where and who you talk to about your trip in the real world. You never know who is listening so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Green venetian2) Install Window Blinds

According to the Metropolitan Police, windows are one of the most common entry and exit routes for burglars, as well as being a showcase for your valuables. Fitting window blinds is a cheap and easy way to add an extra layer of defence to your home, especially if they are made of a noisy material like aluminium that could help to raise an alarm. Venetian blinds, made up of numerous wooden slats held together with cords or tapes, are also easy to become tangled in when trying to get through a window. Just the sight of a noisy venetian blind can be enough to put off an opportunistic burglar.

Motorised blinds3) Add A Motor

Mostly security is just common sense but there are gadgets available that can help to make your house looked lived in, giving the impression that somebody is home even when it is empty.  If you really want to ramp up the security, then add a motor to your blinds. Apollo Blind’s Somfy® automation systems allow motors to be controlled via a timer or light sensor meaning they can open and close dependent upon the time of day.

For more information about Apollo’s made-to-measure blinds and shutters visit www.apollo-blinds.co.uk or call 01924 413 048.





Burglar Alarm

4) Fit A Good Burglar Alarm

Protecting your home is all about making life harder for criminals; if they spy a potential obstacle it could be enough to make them move on to the next (easier) target.  A good burglar alarm is an investment in the safety of your home and family, even if it may seem like a lot of money initially.

There are different types of alarm to choose from including, bells only, speech diallers, wireless and non-wireless, so do your research before you commit to paying any money. Always buy from a reputable and use an installer that is affiliated to an inspectorate, such as National Security Inspectorate (NSI) or Security System and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB).  For more information on comparing burglar alarms see the Which? website.

5) And Use It

It’s surprising how many people have burglar alarms but don’t use them.  Did you know that some household insurers won’t pay out if you have a burglar alarm fitted that’s not been set?  They see this as failing to take reasonable steps to protect your property, so make sure you’re covered and set the alarm before you jet off!

6) Check, Check And Check Again

Sometimes it pays to be paranoid.  It sounds so simple but open or unlocked windows and doors are an invitation to burglars. Check and double check that you have shut all of your doors and windows before you leave the house.  If you are leaving in the middle of the night, do it the night before when you are less likely to miss something.   Studies have also shown that burglars are more likely to break into your house if the front gate is open, so don’t forget this vital detail.

7) You’ve Got Mail

There’s no better way to signify that a house is empty than a growing pile of unopened post behind the front door.  Cancel any regular deliveries and don’t order anything to come whilst you are away. Ask a friend or relative to call in and pick up your mail or use the Royal Mail’s Keepsafe service, which can hold on to letters and parcels for up to 66 days and deliver them when you return.

8) Neighbourhood Watch

Having somebody to watch your house whilst you are away can really help to protect your home. Ask a friend or neighbour to keep an eye on things or hire a professional house sitter.  Use a reputable company such as Homesitters, which guarantees its service because it directly employs and vets its 1,000 plus sitters.  If this is too costly, then try a matchmaking service like TrustedHousesitters.com.  It takes a little more leg work because the onus is on you to vet a potential sitter, however, many of them work for free in return for a break away.

9) Vary Your Routine

It may sound neurotic to think that somebody is watching you but it pays to try and vary the times you leave the house so that it’s less obvious when you’re not following your normal routine. Get up early and walk the dog rather than doing it when you come home. Perhaps drive some days and walk others or take an alternative route to work so that you leave at a different time.

10) Give Your Valuables A Holiday

Leaving everything on show is an open invitation to an opportunistic robber.  Hide your high-worth items around the house or better still ask somebody you trust to look after them whilst you are away.  We’re not talking bulky goods like televisions but smaller portable items that you can’t live without, such as jewellery or tablets. Finally, hide your car keys rather than hanging them on a hook behind the door.
