Throw off your winter coats, dust off your barbeques and fire up your lawnmowers: spring has sprung! At Controlux Blinds we know those long months inside during the wet and windy winter can take their toll, that’s why we can offer you stylish garden amenities to entice you back outside.
Rain or Shine
An awning might seem like a long way off some days but the sun is creeping in; an awning over your decking or patio can turn it into a shaded sanctuary on hotter days (and can give you relief from the rain on those more traditional days and nights).
Sitting under awnings with an ice cold drink on a warm Sunday afternoon is a pleasure no one should be without; that’s why at Controlux Blinds we hope to bring this pleasure to your garden by offering free fittings on our garden awnings.
Keep the Party Going All Night
Why should you have to go in when the sun does? With patio lighting you can enjoy your garden 24 hours a day; ideal for parties and get together, a quiet glass of wine on a lit patio with friends is the perfect end to a spring evening.
Keep Toasty Whatever the Weather
We all want to be in t-shirts and shorts by April but the weather can have other ideas. With outdoor heaters you don’t have to wait for the climate to make its mind up about when you can start making the most of your garden. Whether you’re inviting the neighbours round for drinks, having the family over for a barbeque or just want a quiet catch up with friends outdoor heating can help you utilise your garden space and never have to worry about cancelling plans because of a sudden chill in the air.

After a fairly bleak winter of endless rain and grey skies, spring is on its way and we’re already starting to see signs of the warmer weather to come. As we approach spring and even summer, you might be thinking about having a good old spring clean and starting anew.
Making small improvements to your office can really brighten the mood and increase the energy and productivity of your staff. Here a few simple things that you can do to make a big impact without breaking the bank.
Spending their life in the window, your blinds receive a lot of direct sunlight and this can cause them to fade over time. Replacing your blinds will make the whole room seem neater and brighter, giving you a real office facelift.
Freshen the Paintwork
It’s easy for the paint work to become scuffed and marked without you noticing it, but after a quick lick of paint you could see a big difference. You might even decide to keep changing up the colours (within reason!) to make sure the office is always an interesting place to be.
Introduce Some Greenery
A few carefully selected pot plants can serve as much more than just decoration; they also help to re-oxygenate the atmosphere and keep your staff alert and focused.
Here at Controlux we specialise in supplying bespoke blinds to commercial businesses. Because our blinds are made to measure we can fit them into any size or shape of windows and can offer a wide selection to complement your brand image and interior décor.

As usual there are a few colour schemes fighting for dominance in the world of interior design. We have the a white and cream theme going on but if this strikes you as a bit cold for the winter months there is also a black, white and orange theme. The black and white contrast beautifully and the orange gives your room that essential warmth.
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy perhaps the bohemia style will – this incorporates blues and purples with deep reds. You could try a light shade of blue on the walls with deep red blinds and accessories to add that splash of colour and warmth.
When it comes to wall décor, prints of landscapes and skylines are still very much in demand as well as fabric art pieces. If your walls are a fairly plain colour you can use your accessories to add a bit of colour. You could try adding a patterned sofa or cushions, your blinds are also a great way of adding that much needed hint of colour too.

Beautiful home decoration can be difficult to achieve as there are so many different factors to consider from the colour of your walls to the style of the artwork hanging on them. One thing that many people leave until last or even forget about completely is the overwhelming effect that your blinds can have on the overall look of a room. Here at Controlux Blinds we specialise in blinds and have a wide range of choice to help you finish off your home decoration perfectly and have put together a quick guide to help you choose the best blinds in Surrey.
What Material Is Best?
When it comes to the material you choose for your blinds you need to think very carefully about the style and the look that you want to achieve. Wooden blinds can give a natural yet contemporary look while fabric blinds create a cosier, more homely feel; there’s no right or wrong answer, it’s all about the style that you want to create. Here at Controlux Blinds we have an impressive collection of both wooden and fabric blinds so whatever material you decide on, you’re sure to find it here.
Getting Your Colours Right
Of course the colour or pattern of your blinds is an important choice but one that’s fairly easy to make. It’s a good idea not to try to match your colours but instead, find complementing colours. For example if you have decided to paint your walls a pale green then don’t try to find exactly the same shade of green for your blinds; chances are that the two shades will never be identical and this will disrupt the look of your home. If, however, you choose an obviously different shade of green for your blinds, your decoration will have depth and the different colours will create a beautiful flow.
Here at Controlux Blinds we have a great range of blinds in a variety of different materials, colours, patterns and styles; whether you know exactly what you’re looking for or you’re struggling for inspiration, visit us at our showroom and you’ll find something that meets your needs and tastes perfectly.

When you’re decorating your new offices or thinking about refurbishing your existing offices, you need to consider how your decoration will influence what your potential and existing customers will view your company. Will your potential clients view you as a fresh, dynamic, forward thinking company with new ideas or a near obsolete company with an outdated, archaic approach to business? They say that you should never judge a book by its cover but your clients will undoubtedly be judging your company the second they walk through the door. Here at Controlux Blinds we know what an important role your blinds will play in the overall appearance of your office; we provide have an impressive collection of commercial blinds in Kingston upon Thames to ensure that your interior design accurately reflects your company.
So what styles of commercial blinds can you choose from?
Vertical blinds have been a popular choice in commercial properties for a long time and with good reason; these blinds are highly practical and easy to clean and maintain to a high standard. That doesn’t mean that they’re outdated however, as here at Controlux Blinds we use the latest and highest quality materials to produce an elegant, simple and fresh look.
These classic blinds can help you to create a high-end, professional look in your offices and boardrooms thanks to their sleek, more luxurious appearance. Our venetians blinds, in the same way as vertical blinds, are practical and easy to maintain and will give you excellent light control.
You’re more likely to associate roller blinds with home decoration but choosing these blinds for your offices can create a personal, warm feel while maintaining the level of professionalism and consistency that you need from your office decoration.
Here at Controlux Blinds we’re sure that you’ll find the perfect blinds for your commercial property in our quality collection.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Awning for Your Business
- You need to decide whether you want your awning to blend in with your property or become a colourful focal point which stands out, then you can choose the colour and pattern accordingly
- Where is your property? If it is a little tea room in a park or woodland area you may want to use earthy colours to compliment your surroundings. For a classic look to your awning you could always go for the traditional black and white stripes
- Choose a colour and pattern that reflects the style of the interior to ensure your awning doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb
For ultimate comfort for your customers, you could also invest in patio lighting and heating for your awning.

Nobody likes dark and miserable days, and limited natural light in an office can have a negative effect on your staff, but not being able to control the sunlight coming into your office can be just as problematic.

At Controlux Blinds, we have a range of window blinds Kingston upon Thames which can give you control over your office lighting.

These stunningly elegant and modern blinds have become significantly more popular over the last few years and it is easy to see why.

Their subtle and attractive appearance makes them ideal for external or interior windows.
Importantly, they are easily managed for you to control how much light is able to enter your office.
For people who don’t like the look of slat-style blinds, roller blinds can provide the perfect alternative, and are popular choices in boardrooms and offices.
