Summer Competition – Win Duette® Blinds Worth £1000

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Summertime is fast approaching, which means it’s competition time and we’ve got a fantastic prize on offer for anyone who’s looking to update their home in the coming months.

You could win £1000 to spend on Duette® energy-efficient window blinds, which will keep your home wonderfully cool this summer and create a cosy and warm atmosphere in the winter.

Competition To Win £1000 Duette Blinds

If you can’t stand the heat…install Duette® blinds at the windows

When heatwaves hit and with hobs, ovens and other household appliances adding to rising temperatures, kitchens can become unbearable in summertime, but thermo-regulating Duette® blinds at the windows will keep your kitchen deliciously cool.

Duette® blinds are also ideal for conservatories or any room in the house that struggles to maintain a constant temperature, making rooms useable all year round.  Their unique honeycomb structure traps air in an insulating layer, which will block up to 78% of the sun’s heat and 99% of UV rays.

With no cords or hanging ropes, they’re extra safe for children’s rooms; by regulating the temperature and with blackout options available, they can help your little one sleep soundly all year round.

Available in a kaleidoscope of colours from soothing pastels to summer brights, there is something for every taste and colour scheme.

Enter below to be in with a chance of winning £1000 towards beautiful Duette® blinds.

Win One of Five Ostrich Feather Dusters

Monday, 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.

Photography Competition – #MyApolloView

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

It seems the #MyApolloView competition has really captured your imagination and inspired some beautiful photography.  Our news feeds have been inundated with breath-taking and heart-warming views from across the globe.

From cute kittens to summer getaways, we’ve really enjoyed seeing a window into your world.  And we want to see more, so we’ve picked out a few of our favourites (so far) as inspiration.

@kevinsmith105 sent us this beautiful picture of his children via Twitter.  We’re not sure how anyone else fits in the bed but it’s a super cute view to wake up to.

This sleepy kitten, sent to us via Instagram, looks so snuggly.

You’ve really showcased what a beautiful country we live in.  The sunset in Newquay could rival anywhere in the world.

And what about this view of the beach at Whitby? A place that, we are sure, holds very special memories for @SLStevo.

@DLHidderley sent us this gorgeous view of a bandstand at the local park.

Your entry could be a person/pet as well as a place. The choice is yours!
