We knew that in the summer we’d need to keep the direct sun out of the bedrooms. We’ve already had temperatures of 40°C and humidity of over 80% while we were here in July. That humidity was very high, even for here. Normally it’s more often in the range of 40% – 60% at this time of year.
The sun shines into the main bedroom in the morning, and moves round to the guest room in the afternoon and evening. But finding blinds that went well with the style of the house wasn’t easy. In the end Enrique and Antonio found a company near Valencia, more or less round the corner from the Ford factory in Almussafes, (Fustablinds), who make traditional wooden venetian blinds in various colours.
We chose a natural finish which matched the underside of the roof, and the blinds arrived last week. We are very pleased with blinds. We have also been impressed with both the quality of the workmanship from Fustablinds, and their attention to customer satisfaction.
