Shading design and installation

We design and install automated shading solutions for a wide variety of windows.

Here at BrownHen, we design solutions specifically for you and we are proud to be working in partnership with Appeal Home Shading to offer bespoke window stylings and solutions. This well-established manufacturer has over 30 years of experience in the high-quality window stylings sector, producing every type of window styling imaginable in a large choice of designs and fabrics; blinds for around the home, conservatory and orangery blinds, window shutters, bespoke treatments, even high-quality insect screens. 

In particular their award-winning ULTRA Smart Blinds system fits effortlessly into the modern smart home, providing the convenience of one-touch technology and ultimate control over light and privacy.

Featuring roller, roman, pleated, honeycomb, venetian (aluminium and wooden) and Finestra options, Appeal’s range covers every application, including specially engineered solutions for difficult to cover gable ends and lantern roof blinds. 

Designed for optimum ease of use and performance, ULTRA Smart Blinds deliver a wire-free powered solution. Available in ULTRA and now an ULTRA PLUS variant, which offers control via an app, users can also activate the blinds with voice activation through Amazon Alexa and Google Home. 

The ULTRA range is powered via energy-efficient batteries that need recharging on average just once per year. With no need to install plastic trunking to hide wires, the headrail discreetly incorporates the quiet motor and slim powerpack to make installation fuss free, efficient and repeatable. There is also the option of a discreet solar panel, which will keep the power pack topped up so there is no need to recharge the battery. The blinds can be controlled individually or as groups through the dedicated controllers, via the app or through Home Automation systems, with all the available options of timed events, out-of-home control or reaction to levels such as temperature settings. 

Worried that measuring and fitting window treatments maybe out of your comfort zone? There is no need, as Appeal pride themselves on attention to detail just as much as we do. They provide a complete site visit, measurement and fitting as part of the service. From initial design consultation to skilful installation, at every point you will be expertly supported so the process is worry free.
