NEW Motorised Capital Roller Blind Collection

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

At Apollo Blinds we love introducing innovative new window dressing products to our already huge collection of window blinds, shutters and blind accessories.

Motorised blinds are here to stay and we’ve launched a NEW system that’s so easy to use we know customers will love it as much as we do; we think this smart blinds solution is a smart move towards a smarter home!

Exclusive to our new Capital Roller Blind Collection, the Dream Motor is one of the quietest blind motors available on the market.

 

The Dream Motor is operated by a DreamHub allowing you to control your blinds from anywhere in the world through your smartphone. It’s also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa (Echo and Echo Dot) and Google Home.

You can motorise a single blind or up to 30 blinds – all operated with one single app.

The DreamHub is superbly quick and easy to set up and operate. Once you’ve signed into the free Connector app, developed to work with the Dream Motor and available on iOS and Android, you’ll have your DreamHub and Apollo blinds connected to your wifi network and operating at the swipe of a finger in just a few minutes.

Other features include:

Timers – Set and manage up to 20 timers to enable easy activation or preferred settings at various times of day

Scenes – Set and manage up to 20 scenes

Manage rooms – Group blinds into rooms. Configure and operate a group of blinds that belong to a room.

The motorisation of Apollo blinds, with remote operation, not only makes life more comfortable and convenient but safer for children. There are no dangling cords or chains, just neat easy to use blinds.

Motorised Capital Collection – Roller Blinds

Inspired by colours and materials found in the UK’s stunning capital city, the new Capital Roller Blind Collection encompasses different textures and transparency options and an array of contemporary colours.

In fact there is a choice of more than 300 modern fabrics in this new collection!

Here are some of our design teams’ favourites:

Regents: With its slight sheen and smooth finish achieved with a tight weave this fabric delivers a sophisticated look for any type of home – plus it comes in widths of up to 2800mm.

 

Trafalgar: Trafalgar fabrics allow light to gently filter into a room creating a magical atmosphere. Choose from 36 colours where every shade is a sheer delight.

 

Camden: The Camden range has an exceptionally wide colour palette (66 options) to help you find the precise colour for your room’s scheme.

Barnet: Barnet is a plain fabric with a pearlised backing that reduces the amount of heat transmitted through the blind, effectively managing a room’s light and temperature.

 

Buckingham: Ideal for Skylights and inset roller blinds, this blind has excellent solar reflection properties. Choose from 26 colours.

 

Waltham: Looking for the perfect blackout blind? Look no further than products in the Waltham range.

 

Harrow/Enfield: Large windows? No problem – with widths up to 2800mm these blinds cater for the trend for above average window sizes. There are lots of pastel colours to complement all decors.

Islington: This contemporary fabric has a soft natural look and feel. The texture gives a blended effect, adding depth and character. It’s available in a palette of five colours.

 

Motorised blinds from the Capital Collection are now available at your local Apollo Blinds retailer. Find your nearest stockist over on our Find A Stockist page.

Twilight Blinds Revamped

Thursday, November 1st, 2018

Apollo Blinds has extended its collection of stunning ‘Twilight’ roller blinds, DOUBLING the number of products now available.

There are now over 80 fabrics within the collection – from subtle voiles to silky fabrics and textural linen looks, as well as an array of eye-popping, on-trend colours to add vibrancy to rooms. Apollo has also increased the choice of performance fabrics, with an even wider selection of blackout and flame-retardant options.


With Twilight blinds, homeowners can enjoy all of the room darkening benefits of a roller blind, but within seconds achieve an atmospheric ‘half-light’ effect in their room.

Panels of solid and sheer fabrics allow greater versatility over privacy and light control than other types of blinds – light, dark or somewhere in between (Twilight) can be achieved, by adjusting the continuous loop of fabric around the bottom bar.

Line up the solid fabric for total darkness and privacy, alternate the solid and sheer panels for privacy while light still floods the room, or raise the blinds in the same way as a traditional roller blind for full light.


And there’s the added bonus that this changes the appearance of blinds too, with a striped or flat block of colour achievable according to how the panels are positioned. Talking of stripes – the NEW ‘Sorento’ Twilight blinds also include three different coloured stripes within one blind. Well, who doesn’t love stripes?!


Combining Twilight blinds with hardware that offers a little more for a high-end finish, Twilight blinds come with the exclusive Apollo Blinds Elegance headrail system as standard, it has an aluminium fascia which is available in six colours to match the bottom rail.

Twilight blinds can also be motorised and can even be controlled via the New Powershade® Hub– which allows homeowners to control blinds via a smartphone app or smart speaker.
