Whether you choose to control your Sona Shades with a handset, wall switch, or smart home system, these blinds redefine ease of use.

SonaCell: The blind for any window; these cellular blinds are available in sizes up to 3m wide and 4.5m long. The honeycomb structure of SonaCell blinds provide sound insulation and improve the thermal efficiency of your home. Choose a blackout fabric for improved sleep and maximum insulation, or dim-out fabrics if privacy is your main concern. SonaCell blinds have no visible cords or attachment bars – to operate, simply use your handheld or smart device.

Unique fabrics: Blinds from Silent Gliss don’t just look good – they can have useful functions too. From energy-saving blinds that keep your home cool in the summer to anti-fungal fabrics that prevent mould growth in damp rooms, there’s something to benefit every household.

Why we love Silent Gliss: Superior tracks and systems distinguished by their quiet, effortless gliding mechanisms. Plus, they look gorgeous – what’s not to like?


Okay, so these guys don’t actually stock blinds. Instead, they provide solutions to integrate your luxury blinds into your ceilings so that when not in use, they are “designed to disappear”. This approach eliminates visible cords, cables, or side channels for a seamless and uncluttered look.

Achieving 100% blackout can be very difficult, even if you have blackout blinds. Many have small gaps at the sides of your window which allow light through. By installing side boxes or bottom boxes for your blinds, Blindspace can help you improve your sleep quality with 100% blackout.

Blindspace also offer solutions for skylight windows, as well as recessed curtain tracks (available in both straight and curved variants to suit every window). The tracks and end-sets can be painted to perfectly match the colour of your ceiling for a clean, minimalist aesthetic.

Why we love Blindspace: These concealed tracks and systems are perfect for pairing with your Silent Gliss blinds or curtains! Blindspace provides an uncluttered look that is increasingly popular in modern architecture. Their products are designed to future-proof installations, providing flexibility for changes or upgrades to your window treatments in the future.

And there you have it – our top picks for 2024 that represent the very best in modern window treatments.
