Are you having trouble choosing the perfect manufacturing material or fabric for your shutters, blinds and curtains in Brisbane? Don’t worry, Modern Blinds is here to give valuable advice as we explain each of the most popular materials used in window coverings.

In this article, we’ll discuss eco-friendly timber, sturdy aluminium, the different kinds of fabric available, PVC for shutters, and more.

Timber Blinds and Shutters

Simply put, timber blinds are made from wood. There are different strains of hardwood available for building window coverings in Brisbane. Timber offers incredible insulation properties and is extremely resistant to warping. If your home is full of statement timber pieces of furniture or stunning wood floors, timber blinds are a durable way to complement your existing décor because they can be stained in multiple colours.

Timber is a renewable resource and will create a natural insulation barrier between your window and the outside temperature. If you choose timber, you’ll see a noticeable difference in your heating and cooling bills while minimising your environmental footprint.

Aluminium Window Coverings

Aluminium Venetian blinds are a durable, stylish way to dress windows. Their reliability has made them a popular choice for office buildings. You can choose virtually any colour in a UV-resistant finish that is strong against chipping and breakages. Since their creation, metal blinds are now an elegant and sophisticated product.

If you’re interested in installing external shutters, aluminium Add – or Vogue Shutter options from Modern Blinds (Remove -are lockable for added security). These low-maintenance shutters are easy to clean and are resistant against fading and rusting.

Fabric Shades

Window shades are typically made with one solid piece of fabric. At Modern Blinds, we offer Veri Shades® which are an innovative alternative to curtains that offer the functionality of blinds. You can choose from a range of colours and fabrics to perfectly suit your needs; two-sided folds can even be changed from translucent to opaque with a simple twist.

Many homeowners in Brisbane option for shades over blinds because they are great for letting in natural light, and modern innovations have made them easier to clean than previous models.

PVC Blinds

PVC Visionwood Venetian blinds are considered the best way to keep your belongings safe from UV rays while controlling natural light. These plastic-based blinds have been specially designed to offer a low-maintenance, affordable option to timber. Due to their strength, PVC window furnishings are fantastic for high-traffic areas, such as kitchens and bathrooms.
