Cordless window blinds are the big hit in 2011
2011 will be the year that cordless window blinds step out of the shade and
become a big hit with homeowners according to Tim Osman expert on interior
Tim believes cordless blinds will be a hit for two main reasons. The first is that they
are the safest blinds on the market as they have no cords or chains, which
dramatically reduces the chances of children injuring themselves. The second is
that they simply clip into windows or doors so there’s no need to drill or screw
fixings into uPVC frames.
He is expecting a surge of enquiries at Apollo Blinds business in Blackburn
because he is currently proving them with a 20% discount until the end of August.
“For the first time there is a collection which addresses two major stumbling blocks
for consumers and solves both in one handy and stylish solution,” said Tim.
“Safety has become a huge concern, particularly for parents and grandparents
who have been calling on blinds companies to introduce a wider selection which
is suitable for areas where children either live or visit.”
