    The sort of blinds that are fitted inside the double glazed units on your patio doors, or conservatory windows. You don't have to dust or clean them, and that's what appeals to us.

    The question is what happens if the cords break or some other problem arises? They are sealed in so you cannot get at them to repair, so we would like to hear from anyone who has them and can vouch for them being trouble free.

    I did look at these when shopping for windows.

    They are impressive. But they were asking for 300 per pane to add it in. Regardless of the the window size. I decided it added to much cost on to their already high quote and didn't go for it.

    I don't know what you mean by 'different types' -- the ones I saw today in a show house were riny blinds inside a bi-fold garden door. Five panes of souble glazing, with integral blinds, controlled by magnets to open, close, lift up etc.
