Happy New Year and Best Wishes for the Season… And by “season”, we mean Spring 2019. And Summer 2019.. and onwards!
If you’re anything like us, as the chaos of Christmas settles, you start looking around your home and start thinking about how it could be even better next year. Domestic New Year’s Resolutions, if you will.
At Appeal, we have over 30 years’ experience making home improvements with our shading solutions. Our experts work with homeowners to design, construct and fit beautiful and practical products that can transform living spaces – with everything tailor-made and matched to your decor.
And we have a product to give your home a new lease of life every season of the year.
Winter – increased cosiness
Through the coldest months, Appeal’s award-winning ULTRA Smart Blinds (powered by a rechargeable battery, with no wiring or dangling cords) can be lowered to ward off bad weather whether you are at home – through simple voice activation via Alexa or Google Hub – or, via an app on your phone or tablet, when you’re away at work or on holiday.
Voice activation means that if a storm rolls in, you can instantly lower all the blinds in the house with a phrase (try “Snowmageddon!” or “There’s a twister a’comin’!”) for added insulation. (Did you know, the average house loses 20% of its heat through uncovered windows, and the more glass you have, the higher that number is.) That is especially true, if you choose one of Appeal’s energy-saving materials from our huge range of blind styles, materials and colours.
ULTRA Plus’s remote app also allows you to manage your blinds (as well as Philips Hue bulbs and devices on smart plugs) while you’re out. You can set winter scenarios to ensure you come home to a cosy ambience. And you can also add to your security measures by setting the blinds to open and close blinds at unpredictable times if you’re out.
Spring – create an extra room
As the year continues, our gaze is drawn towards the garden, but it may not quite be the weather to head outdoors. Sometimes, the theory of glass-dominated rooms can be more attractive than the reality – it can be too cold at times and uncomfortably hot at others. And plants and furnishings can suffer from long exposure to UV light.
Appeal has been providing blinds to conservatory, orangery and garden room owners for over 30 years, always finding the right solution from our wide selection of options. These range from our classic material, Original Pinoleum (delicate strips of carefully selected reed, hand-woven by expert craftsmen in France), which diffuse light and retain heat, to hi-tech materials such as Alu-Pleat® and Solar R® (exclusive to Appeal), which have been proved to reflect 85% of heat, yet allow natural light in.
With the help of the measurements carefully taken by our design consultants, we are able to cut our blinds to any size or shape your windows take, be they roof or side glass panels. The overall effect will transform a space.
Summer – make indoor-outdoor flow work
We long for the summer, with grand plans of al fresco dining and indoor-outdoor flow. But then we end up hiding from the sun as it warms our wine, makes our salads wilt and gives us sunburn. Then the sun goes down and it’s too cold to stay out.
Haus awnings from Appeal are precision-engineered in Germany to provide a pleasant environment on your terrace, from day to evening – they even protect your patio furnishings from fading under harsh UV rays. They can also be installed with optional LED lighting and infrared heaters to extend your al fresco enjoyment into the evening. Haus awnings come in no fewer than 47 standard shades, plus 150 special colours, using a special dyeing process which locks pigment into the fibres for years of brilliance, then finished with Teflon EXTREME® to ensure fabrics are water and dirt repellent.
Special offer! Appeal is offering 10% off all Haus awnings ordered before 31 January 2019. Not only that, but we will also deliver a FREE case of six bottles of quality wine.
Autumn – combine classic & contemporary style
If you’re looking for a lower-tech shading solution which nonetheless give you control over light, temperature and privacy, Appeal’s stylish, handcrafted wooden shutters are an elegant solution. Like the ideal guest, they’re equally at home in a contemporary townhouse or a country manor. And they suit every room: lounge or kitchen; bedroom or bathroom.
They are perfect for transitional times of year such as autumn… With tiers and louvres, they can be adjusted to let in just as much sunshine and cooling breeze as you like when it’s warm. And when temperatures drop and the evenings draw in, they provide an effective insulating barrier, as well as creating a cosy atmosphere inside.
Appeal’s tailor-made shutters are individually handcrafted, using superior materials, to perfectly complement your window styles, shapes and colour themes. Our range of plantation wooden window shutters are available in five types of timber and a variety of colours and finishes. for your home – are an elegant option which work in a contemporary or classic setting.
“The whole process was very easy and professional, would happily buy from them again.”
