Everyones circumstances and requirements are different, that’s why our consultants bring all of our samples out to your home and make suggestions on colours and types of blinds that they think will suit.

How long will my blinds last?

We have our budget ranges for sales, rentals, first home buyers etc. through to premium ranges. Budget ranges carry a 1-2 year warranty, premium ranges come with a full 2 year warranty. The life of a blind depends largely on how it is treated and looked after. If treated well, you should get at least 10 years (if not more) out of the blinds.

14
What are the best blinds for keeping a room cool?

There are several blinds on the market that will help with this. Roller or Roman blinds in a block-out fabric is a good option for keeping the heat out and cool in. Another option is a roller blind in a sunscreen, mesh fabric, which would also assist with this. Sunscreen fabrics cut out 95% of UV rays, keep out 85% of the heat and allow you a view outside when the blind is down.

What blinds are best for privacy?

We recommend roller blinds or blockout blinds for privacy as they will offer complete privacy day or night. Roman blinds are also an ideal option for privacy as the thick and fully lined material allow for a every effective light blocking option.

How to choose blinds for different areas?

We always advise ‘lighter’ blinds in the living areas of your home. This includes the living room, kitchen, and dining room. This is because plenty of light is needed in these areas. For the bedroom, we recommend blockout blinds as they block the most light.
