Tips for getting new blinds

Thinking about some indoor improvements? A room filled with new blinds is a great way to give your home a new look.

Firstly, decide if you need blinds for privacy, sun control, heat control or ambience. 

Blinds are more than a fitting in your home, they give your home style!

Shutters are sophisticated and luxurious yet practical and are suited for any room including wet areas.

Venetians are also a great alternative for wet areas as privacy is easily controlled with a slight twist of a wand.

Roller blinds are available in both blockout and sheer fabric. Blockout, for privacy and sun control and Sheer, for sun control and ambience. Roller blinds are available as a dual system therefore can utilize both blockout and sheer fabric.

  • Bedrooms require privacy and sun control.

Always consider how the blinds will look from the outside of your home, as well as inside

Don’t forget, cleaning and maintenance. 

All blinds require cleaning but some more than others.

  • Roller and vertical blinds are relatively fuss-free with general use of the blind minimizing dust build-up.  When required wipe over with a damp cloth.
  • Shutters, although the slats are horizontal, they are wider and easy to wipe over with a damp cloth. 
  • Venetian blinds have smaller horizontal slats and take a little longer but are easily cleaned by wiping over with a damp cloth.
