How to Choose The Right Blinds and Shutters For Your Home
For new homeowners, or those renovating existing houses, choosing window coverings can be a big decision, as well as a significant investment.
Some window furnishings become a fixed part of the house, whether internally or externally, meaning they can add value to your home. But this also means that your decision cannot be reversed easily!
Blinds and shutters remain 2 of the most popular window coverings for Australian houses and lifestyles, allowing plenty of natural light and airflow into your home. You may end up choosing a combination of the 2 – either way, there are a number of factors you need to consider when choosing the right types of blinds and shutters for your home.
Let’s look at some of the best-known types of both blinds and shutters, to help you make the right choice for your home, family and lifestyle.
Popular Blinds – A Style to Suit Every Home
Cost effective and with an ease of functionality that is second to none, Modern vertical blinds
are ideal for windows and sliding doors. Privacy and light are easily controlled with chain or wand operation to rotate blades up to 180 degrees, and when opened, stack neatly to provide unobstructed views.
Contemporary design and practical versatility combine to make roller blinds
Australia’s number one choice in window coverings around the home. With renowned popularity, comes extensive design choice – with a variety of fabrics, motorisation and decorative options available to our customers.
A contemporary alternative to vertical blinds, the clean and elegant lines of panel glides
are designed to complement the modern home. Some panel glides can be manufactured to open from the left, right or centre, making them the ideal solution for sliding doors, large windows or even as a room divider!
Designed with clean horizontal lines that fold neatly allowing open and uninhibited views, Roman blinds provide elegance and sophistication to any room. Manufactured with chain control as standard – no more long untidy cords!
Honey Cell Blinds
Simple and elegant, honey cell blinds are designed with unique cell air pockets that combine practical insulation qualities and an attractive modern aesthetic.
Achieve functionality at an affordable price with the 180 degree privacy and light control of Venetians.
