We are a Luxaflex dealer which means we offer a wide selection of different options from this market leading brand. Luxaflex are leading the way in terms of fabrics and mechanisms within blinds. We also have the Luxaflex Home range which offers the same exceptional build quality and variety at exceptional value for money.

Venetian Blinds

Recently wooden venetian blinds have become extremely popular because they provide a sleek, modern look. At Dean & Co. we have an impressive variety from Luxaflex; Finishes are vast and can vary from painted, gloss to varnished wood grain and can be custom coloured to your paint choice. We find faux wood is very popular for bathrooms and moist environments. Venetian blinds are ideal for modern homes and give a minimal feel. Dean & Co. supply 25mm and 50mm slats and are also introducing a 68mm slat which is designed to look like a plantation shutter. Luxaflex are at the forefront of blind development; Their Silhouette, Facette and Twist blinds are similar to a venetian blind but made of fabric – you can see through it in the day and close it in evening. This means they are great for offering privacy and at the same time, protection from the sun. Alternatively, German company Louvolite offer the Vision blind which opens and closes so that it can be both opaque and transparent. This is a fabulous alternative to venetians and we have a comprehensive range of colours to choose from.

Pleated Blinds

The pleated blind folds into a concertinaed shape which gives nice clean lines and is ideal for modern homes. We offer Cosiflor pleated blinds as their extensive colour range and texture options for this particular style of blind is unrivalled. We do also have a similar version with a honeycomb structure that can be used to cover one section of the window at a time (top, bottom or middle). They are also ideal for unusual shaped windows and can be used on conservatory roofs. Originally developed 15-20 yrs ago for use in conservatories, the pleated design is very different from some of the other options available on the market today which makes it a popular choice.

Roller Blinds

The simplest type of blind is the Roller blind. Luxaflex have over 800 fabric and colour options to choose from. Roller blinds at Dean & Co. are available chain operated, sprung or with an electric motor. Motorisation is now available battery powered on several blind options, therefore removing the need for mains power and wiring. Scallops are available on the bottom edge or alternatively with a bottom bar or metal castille shapes.

Alternatively, another similar solution is the Luxaflex Facette which is based on a roller blind; it comprises of two identical layers of opaque and transparent striped fabric which move against each other to create the open and closed effect.

 

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. It’s often thought they are all cream with chains that get broken along the bottom. You may be surprised to find out that vertical blinds are now available as a metal or plastic slats without chains which results in them being more sturdy and gives them a contemporary look.

Shutter Blinds

Ideal for bathrooms and kitchens, Luxaflex shutter blinds come with a 25 year guarantee. Their sleek style can transform a plain window into the focal point of a room. They are durable and come in either vinyl (great for moist rooms) or wood. The vinyl option comes with internal air pockets which provides an extra layer of energy efficiency. The slats are available in four widths 32, 48, 64 and 89mm. Shutter blinds are lightweight and won’t chip, crack or fade in the light.

We had roman blinds fitted in two bedrooms and a wood venetian blind in the kitchen. I was amazed at the wide choice of fabrics available.
