Today’s multi-functional kitchens are used in so many different ways: cooking and dining, entertaining and chilling out, and even a place for the kids to do their homework. The list goes on and on!

With careful planning, it’s still possible to transform your kitchen and make it the heart of your home.

Your conservatory needs tender loving care if it’s to function efficiently. If it hasn’t been regularly serviced, a number of maintenance issues can quickly arise. But don’t panic! There are ways to deal with them to restore the room to its former glory; here’s how.
The New Year is a great time to think about updating your home’s interiors. If you’re stuck for inspiration, look no further than Pantone’s colour of the year: Greenery. Although the actual shade that’s been chosen is a yellow-green, you don’t have to be a slave to fashion. From cool mint and zesty lime through to soft fern and dark bottle, there’s a green for everyone! Any type of green will add some verve to your home and help to refresh and revitalise it for spring.
Your conservatory is a valuable asset to your home and it requires regular maintenance to keep it looking almost as good as new and working smoothly. While there may be lots of little jobs you can do yourself, for other tasks it’s best to call in the experts. Follow our guide of dos and don’ts and you won’t go far wrong!

There’s a reason estate agents see bay windows as an asset to a property: everyone wants them! They add character and let in plenty of natural light, making your home bright and airy.
If you’re lucky enough to have bay windows, it can be tricky to know how best to dress them. There are a number of options available so read on to find the one that’s right for you.
Everyone loves their conservatory in the summer but come winter, it becomes a no-go area. The problem is always the same: the room can’t be used in the colder months because of heat loss through the glass. The question is, what can you do about it?
Gadgets used to be über-cool additions to a property; they were a luxury which were great to have but they never really transformed lives. Today, technology has moved on and 2016 was the year when it really came to the fore in our homes. Now, you can control your lighting, your central heating thermostat and even your home appliances – all from your smartphone.
With just over 10 days left until Christmas, for most of us, there’s still a lot to do. As an antidote to all the stresses of festive shopping, why not sit back, relax and treat yourself this Christmas from the comfort of your own home. Simply book a free, no obligation appointment with one of our designers near you and we’ll help you choose from our range of conservatory blinds, window shutters or window blinds.
When dressing windows, there’s a lot to think about before splashing out your hard-earned cash. If you’ve already dismissed curtains as an option, you’re left with blinds or shutters. But there are so many ranges and styles to choose from, it can all seem overwhelming.
Christmas is an exciting time, especially if you have young children. There’s so much going on: nativity plays to watch, trips to see Santa and friends and family to visit. One thing you won’t need to get stressed over is your window coverings if you’ve chosen child safe blinds without visible loops or cords.
In today’s world of cyber shopping, the internet has made our planet a much smaller place. With the click of a mouse or a swipe of your tablet or mobile device, you can instantly buy products online from anywhere in the UK or even across the globe. But there are also a number of advantages to buying from a national company.
Thomas Sanderson is thrilled to be exhibiting once again at the 2016 Ideal Home Show at Christmas event in London. Running from Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 November at Olympia London, it’s a great day out that’s jam-packed with festive ideas.
Black Friday (25 November) has come around again when you can find fantastic savings on all your favourite products. But just because it’s Black Friday doesn’t mean your home should be without great colour. With our colour matching service, you can always find the exact colour you need. So whether you’d like your blinds or shutters to match your upholstery, cushions or existing paintwork, you can get great savings in any colour you like!
A conservatory is top of the wish-list for many people wanting to improve their homes, and rightly so. It’s a major asset that adds a feeling of light to a property together with much needed living space.
The old saying ‘you get what you pay for’ is particularly apt for major home purchases such as washing machines, sofas, or blinds and shutters for your windows.
Christmas is coming and with the potential for extra visitors coming and going over the festive period, you’ll want your home to be looking its best.
The Danes know a thing or two about long, cold winters, having to cope with up to 17 hours of darkness per day. Yet Denmark is officially the world’s happiest country - and Hygge is the key.

Say hello to autumn by giving your home a fresh, new look. Here are our favourite trends for the new season...
We’re thrilled to be exhibiting again at this year’s Grand Designs Live Birmingham. Based on the Channel 4 TV series, this incredible show runs for five days from Wednesday 19 October – Sunday 23 October at the NEC in Birmingham.
The weather in October can be pretty unpredictable. We could be heading for a lovely Indian summer or a chilly, early autumn. But whatever the weather this month, Thomas Sanderson can help!
As temperatures get chillier with winter approaching, it’s inevitable that our heating bills are bound to go up. However, many of us don’t realise how much heat (and money!) we could be losing because our homes aren’t as energy efficient as they could be. So before you stay in and crank up the thermostat, make sure your home is winter ready with these 5 energy saving tips so you don’t end up spending a fortune on heat.
There are lots of ways you can save energy at home: switching off lights when you’re not using them, reducing your thermostat setting by 1ºC, and only washing full loads of clothing in the machine, to name just a few. The downside is that the whole family has to do their bit but Thomas Sanderson has come up with an even easier way for you to save energy...

Thomas Sanderson is thrilled to be exhibiting at this year’s Southampton Boat Show taking place between Friday 16 and Sunday 25 September 2016.

There’ll be thousands of boats of all types and sizes to see on the UK’s largest purpose-built show marina.
More and more people have bi-folding doors, sliding doors and large windows in their homes these days – and for good reason. They make your rooms bright and airy because they let in so much natural light. But what’s the best way to dress these windows? Thomas Sanderson has the answer: Luminette® Privacy Blinds, a stylish alternative to bland, office-like vertical blinds.
Interiors trends come and go but there’s one style which will never go out of fashion: classic French chic. If you’ve been on holiday to France this summer, you’ll recognise the style from French chateaux and villas which are always flooded with natural light. As well as being perfect for both traditional and contemporary homes, French chic is a great reminder of long, hot summer days all year round.
If you have a conservatory, you’ll know that it’s a near impossible task to keep it looking in tiptop condition. All the finials, nooks and crannies, and the huge expanse of glass make it even more difficult to clean to a high standard. But Thomas Sanderson has the answer.
Avoid the crowds this Bank Holiday and instead, choose stylish new window stylings from Thomas Sanderson in the comfort of your own home. We offer free design consultations, taking the time to talk you through all the options available. Each of our designers is an expert, so you’ll have an invaluable opportunity to discuss interior design ideas free of charge.
Large windows, sliding doors and bi-folding doors are fantastic for letting in lots of light and for providing an uninterrupted view of the garden. This isn’t so good if your windows are overlooked by other properties, no matter how much you like your neighbours!But with Thomas Sanderson’s Luminette® Blinds, you can enjoy the view with complete privacy.
We’re thrilled to be exhibiting this week at the Bournemouth Air Festival. The event takes place between Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st August right down on the seafront.
During the long, summer holidays, it can be difficult to keep everyone happy, especially if the weather turns wet or unseasonably cold. When the children or grandchildren are cooped up inside with little space, it’s not long before squabbling breaks out.
During the hot, summer months, your home can become unbearably warm and stuffy. To keep it cool and airy, the usual advice is to close your blinds on the sunny side of the house during the hottest part of the day; when the sun’s moved round, you should repeat the process on the opposite side. That’s all very well but it’s not very practical if you’re out at work or away for the day. Now with Thomas Sanderson’s PowerView™, there’s a much easier way to achieve the same effect. Here’s how.
The excitement is building, you’ve seen the trailers and now Rio 2016 is almost here! It’s time to cheer on Team GB in the Olympic Games (5 – 21 August) and the Paralympic Games (7 – 18 September). From archery to athletics through to tennis and taekwondo, there’s something for everyone whichever sport you like.
Conservatories can be fantastic living spaces with wonderful views of the garden. But during the summer, they can be unbearably hot to sit in especially in south-facing rooms. That’s because the majority of the glare and heat builds up on the roof. Thomas Sanderson has the answer to this perennial problem: made to measure roof blinds.
Congratulations to all of our winners so far in The Great 25 Year Giveaway, one of the ways we’re celebrating Thomas Sanderson’s 25 years of inspirational home styling.
With the summer months to look forward to, chances are you’ll be spending more time in your conservatory. It’s a wonderful space from which to view the garden but not if the glass and all the nooks and crannies aren’t as clean as you’d like them to be. Thomas Sanderson can solve this problem quickly and easily.
Once again, Thomas Sanderson is thrilled to be exhibiting at the New Forest and Hampshire County Show. The event takes place between Tuesday 26 July and Thursday 28 July at the Brockenhurst showground.
Everyone loves summer with longer hours of daylight but there is a downside: having your sleep interrupted by early morning sunshine. A lie-in seems like an impossible dream! Thomas Sanderson has the answer to this perennial problem with our unique Options Shutter Blinds.
In lovely, sunny weather, your conservatory should be the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the garden. But the huge expanse of glass means it can be stiflingly hot if you don’t have effective blinds, so the room often ends up being abandoned. Thomas Sanderson’s beautiful pleated blinds for the conservatory are the answer.

This year we are celebrating 25 years as the experts in making a conservatory an all round room with beautiful window styling.
At this time of year, strong sunlight can cause havoc in your home, particularly in south-facing rooms and conservatories. Carpets, upholstery, paintings and photographs can all become faded by the sun’s UV rays.
Monday 20 June is the longest day of the year, a time to enjoy hours and hours of glorious sunshine – if the British weather lets us! It’s also a time when you’ll notice the need for shade, particularly in south-facing rooms and conservatories.
The key to dressing large windows, sliding doors and bi-folding doors is to use vertical blinds that are both practical and stylish. Vertical blinds have a reputation for looking dull and office-like but Thomas Sanderson has created a beautiful alternative for wow-factor windows: new Luminette® Privacy Blinds.
Technology’s everywhere but now there’s a smart new way to use it to instantly control the light, shade and temperature of your home. With Thomas Sanderson’s PowerView™, you’ll be in complete control of you sr powered blinds from across the room or even across the world!
With the long days of summer stretching ahead, chances are you’ll be spending more time in your conservatory. Bright sunshine is wonderful for providing natural light through the windows but it also shows up every single speck of dirt on the glass. It seems to be a never-ending task to clean windows but what if you could keep your conservatory sparkling clean for longer?

Summer’s coming and with it, there’ll be an abundance of flying insects such as flies and moths, mosquitoes and midges, bees and wasps. While they’re fine in the garden, they can be more of a nuisance if they get indoors. You could repel them with natural remedies like spraying the air with peppermint oil, growing basil plants indoors and using home-made traps. But the best line of defence is to prevent them getting in your home in the first place.

Nowadays, there are plenty of companies online offering cheap blinds and shutters. These may not be of the best quality and you’ll have to measure your windows yourself, as well as install the products. Few windows are completely straight so you’ll never end up with a perfect fit.

As the cold weather is approaching, it’s important to give your conservatory some TLC to get it through the winter.
Neglecting conservatory care in the freezing weather can be really damaging. Ice, hail, rain and wind can all have a decaying effect, causing dangerous mildew and mould to grow on the building’s surface. This can potentially damage the structural integrity of the conservatory itself.
Leave it untreated, and this could cause expensive problems for the following year.

The installer was excellent – we are very pleased with the blinds.
We are absolutely delighted with the blinds. The design service was very professional. The installer was very good – he is a great guy and was absolutely brilliant. It was a very enjoyable experience.
The blinds are great and we were really happy with the whole service. The things that made us choose Thomas Sanderson instead of competitor companies were the quality of blinds, the way they operate, the way the blinds fit in the windows and the lack of cords. Also the features that Thomas Sanderson blinds had such as the toggles and pleats – basically the whole technology of the blinds. We had a really good installation – we have a slightly odd shaped roof in the conservatory and the installer explained the issues that we expected to experience which gave us plenty of time to think about how we wanted the blinds to work. Really happy.
We had a good design service; the designer was very good and showed us examples of all the different blinds and shutters. Lovely installer and he was very, very thorough with the measurements and such a nice man. The blinds are absolutely gorgeous; everyone who sees them says how nice the conservatory now looks. We have got our conservatory back! The blinds have totally made a difference with the glare from the sun and we now feel the conservatory is extra secure as well as looking lovely.
The window shutters are lovely and really nice. The design service was very efficient. We were very impressed with the installation service. The surveyor and installer were very good. The shutters enhance the room and are really ideal for privacy.

Thomas Sanderson - Bayline Bay window blinds
Once again this year we will be participating in this year’s abseil event for The Rowans Hospice.
Conservatory designs offer homeowners a wide variety of styles; Victorian, Edwardian, lean-to, and gable fronted. The style of the conservatory will be based on the type of home you have but people often choose to go with something more modern and desirable to add value to their home.
Windows are one of the most important features in any home. They allow the outside world to enter your home and inside and they can make a statement about who you are.
Every day that passes at this time of year makes me look out in greater wonder. The clarity of the spring air, the blueness of the sky, the greenness of the emerging leaves on the trees, and the darkness and gloom of the winter visibly coming to a close.
Window treatments are often chosen to be the focal point around which a room is designed. Interior designers frequently work from the window blinds and interior walls to the middle of a living space. If your room already has a theme, then your designer can help you choose the right blinds for your windows.
For the ultimate control over your surroundings at home, Thomas Sanderson bring you the very latest in window shading automation, our brand new and exclusive remote control system - Platinum.
Conservatory blinds can bring a whole host of benefits to the way you use your room:
When you choose to buy blinds for your conservatory it’s important to get it right – after all they’re going to be part of your room for many years to come.
Plantation shutters which are normally made from wood are designed to suit any window in a home. Vinyl shutters offer homeowners that same versatility but come in wider variety of styles.
According to the RICS, conservatories add 5% to the value of a property, but for buyers, the presence of a conservatory signifies that they are not simply buying a house, but a home.
Conservatory blinds are specifically designed for the harsh environment of this sunny space and are the answer to making this the best room in your home.
Their clean lines and classic appearance can complement any style of décor, from traditional to modern.
Boutique window blinds, with their unique textures, stylish patterns and bold prints are a great way to take advantage of the privacy and light control benefits of blinds and the decorating style of draperies.
Add a touch of designer luxury and a sense of style to your home with the latest exclusive collection of Laura Ashley conservatory blinds or window shutters.
Inspiration for the home is often taken from our experiences – either from inspiration from another homes décor, or from our travels; taking in different cultures and colour palettes. Whichever excites us can inspire a breath of fresh air into our home.
