Summer Summary Blog 2018 Uncategorized 11.09.2018 Wow…This Has Been A Hot And Bright Summer! Most people have enjoyed Summer 2018. It’s been hot, sunny and, for the most part, the UK has been a great place to be over the past few months. A good Summer is not without its challenges though. Here at Aspiration Blinds we’ve seen a boost in sales for two types of product in particular. Firstly, shutters and blinds that assist with heat reduction. Secondly, black-out blinds to filter light. The domestic and commercial markets have gone crazy for shutters and blinds that help reduce heat. People being too hot and uncomfortable at home and in the workplace has been commonplace over the last few months. The introduction of blinds and shutters to aid heat reduction is a perfect way to help people get back to functioning properly on a daily basis. Our fantastic Summer has also played havoc with sleep patterns for adults and children alike. Brighter mornings and lighter skies in the evenings has led to sleep deprivation, with people up earlier and awake until later. No wonder sales of our black-out blinds have rocketed! No matter how light it is outside, our black-out blinds will help you get the amount of sleep you want. En-Vogue; Alfresco Dining And Entertaining Of course, the main benefit of the superb weather we’ve enjoyed recently is the ability to get your family and friends outside. As more and more people want to extend their space and make the most of their homes, we’ve found sales of our outdoor systems have increased significantly. With alfresco dining and entertaining growing in popularity, louvered verandas, made-to-measure glass systems, awnings, canopies and external screens are all fantastic options to help increase your outdoor use during good weather. Additions To Our Growing Range In our ongoing quest to provide our customers with the very best solutions, we’re extending our range. We’ve added several new products including two new Louvolite systems; the allusion and the visage. Practical and stylish, both allusion and visage blinds can be used to great effect to filter sunlight and maintain privacy. Allusion blinds look particularly good when combined with large windows, bi-folding doors or patio doors. Our Team Continues To Grow Finally, we’d like to introduce the newest member of our team. Overseeing installations and surveys from 1st October will be Jon Byrne. Like the name suggests, Jon is the brother of Aspiration Blind’s owner, Chris Byrne. Having previously worked for the business several years ago, Jon brings a wealth of experience and expertise and we can’t wait to welcome him on a full-time basis. Summary Busy. If we had to describe how Summer has been for Aspiration Blinds in just one word, busy would be it. It’s been great though and we’ve had the pleasure of working on some incredible projects. We’re confident this busy streak will continue into the latter part of the year too. Until our next blog, goodbye for now!
