Two prizes worth £2,500 to be won from Appeal Home Shading

win blinds competition

Technology is moving into every aspect of our homes and now our windows have been given the high-tech treatment, thanks to Appeal Home Shading.

Its Ultra Smart blinds are wire-free and use rechargeable batteries, removing the need for nuisance cords and mains wiring, making them a sleek, child-friendly addition to your home. We’ve joined forces with Appeal to give two lucky Grand Designs readers the opportunity to win a set of blinds.

Using them is easy thanks to one-touch control, which is operated from a handheld device or a discreet wall-mounted panel that can be fitted anywhere. You can even pre-set your window coverings to open or close based on time, temperature or light. So, if the shrill ring of the alarm clock causes you stress in the mornings, you can configure your blinds to open with the sunrise, allowing you to be woken by natural light instead.

There are over 400 fabrics and colours available, so there is a style suitable for every home. As well as blinds for windows and conservatories, Appeal offers window shutters, retractable insect screens and patio awnings.

 For more information, call 0800 975 5757 or visit appealshading.com
