Case study: awning and roller blinds installation

The Challenge 

The customer had just moved into a beautiful property and required some much-needed shading solutions to turn their house into a home.

The client approached Distinctive to work on an existing electric blind system, but to provide a reliable, luxury and comprehensive service, we needed to re-think our approach. We worked tirelessly with the client to give every window our undivided attention to provide a solution that perfectly met the specific requirements.

Our Recommendation

Some windows within the property did not have access to an electrical power supply. To combat this issue, we installed 8 Diaz battery roller blinds, so the client could have automated blinds while removing the need to channelling a power supply. For some of the bay windows within the residence, the size diameters prevented us from using similar window treatments such as the Diaz products. To overcome this, our expert installation team fitted Q MOTION roller blinds as this system came in small battery-operated blinds. For aesthetic continuity, we went with the same Diaz fabrics but used the Q motion system on the smaller windows.

The Diaz roller blinds within the kitchen and lounge are a part of an integrated system, which allows them to work in unison, raising or lowering the blind with a click of a button. Also, the innovative system has the options for individual operations should the client need the freedom to do so.

The lounges feature a large stunning skylight that welcomes an abundance of light. Because of this window type, the skylight blind would need an effective treatment that provides a smooth, automatic operation due to its location. We presented the client with a SHY Shading electric roof roller blind as it perfectly covers large areas and provides optimal shade with ease.

Additionally, we installed our premium external blind system on the patio. Throughout the planning process with the client, we held design appointments within our showroom with the clients to go through fabric selection. Because of the customer’s needs, we felt the Markilux MX-3 awning was the ideal shading solution. This external blind solution is a folding arm full cassette awning, which has a slender, slick design that provides up to 6 meters of shading. Furthermore, the innovative system is water and dirt-proof while still providing factor 50+ UV protection.
