Top 5 Blinds for Australian Homes

When you live in Australia, buying the right blinds for your home is not something that should be taken lightly. You see, we live under a large hole in the ozone layer and this increases the impact of the sun’s heat and its UV rays. This can increase the temperature in your home and cause your furnishings to fade.

Of course, there are plenty of other good reasons to buy blinds that suit your lifestyle. For a little inspiration, check out our top 5 blinds for Australian homes.

  1. Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are made of a single layer of fabric that wraps neatly around a tube at the top of the window. They are cost effective, simple, versatile and incredibly easy to match with any décor. You can usually choose from a range of colours that match your interior style.

Roller blinds are great because they provide varying degrees of privacy and shade. When they are opened completely, they provide uninterrupted views of the great outdoors.

One of the more versatile styles of blinds in Australia, you can choose from blockout, sunscreen or translucent roller blinds.

Blockout roller blinds provide complete privacy when closed and they prevent the majority of light and heat from entering the room. The mesh on sunscreen roller blinds protects your interior from the sun without sacrificing the view. Finally, translucent roller blinds offer more privacy than sunscreen as well as heat resistance and a nice glow of light.

  1. Roman Blinds

Roman blinds provide your home with a classy and luxurious look. They are made of soft fabric panels that fold neatly on top of one another. The fabric allows for brilliant designs that will give your home a sophisticated look. You can usually choose between timber and aluminium batons.

  1. Venetian Blinds

Practical yet stylish, Venetian blinds are a popular, classic window covering. They consist of horizontal slats that are suspended by a corded ladder system. You can choose between different slat materials, including timber, aluminium, and faux wood. Each material has its own benefits.

For example, wood and faux wood provide an elegant, warm look that perfectly matches living areas. Aluminium would be best suited to kitchens and bathrooms as it’s easier to clean and water resistant.

 

  1. Vertical Blinds

Giving you the perfect balance of light and privacy, vertical blinds are sleek and contemporary. They are great for large windows or sliding doors and come in many different colours. Vertical blinds allow for great control of light but they don’t offer as much temperature control as other models.

 

  1. Plantation Shutters

They might not be blinds, but plantation shutters are still an excellent window covering that add style and functionality to any Australian home.

Shutters are a very popular option in warm climates because they make light and ventilation control simple. The moveable slats are not only good-looking – as technology gets better, they also help to insulate your home from heat. Plantation shutters will help you get the most out of your electricity bills – you can choose between lovely timber shutters and modern PVC shutters.

Would recommend to family friends. Have had blinds, shutters and sliding door shutter installed start of 2018, so year and a half, quality product and great no fuss service. Had a minor issue with the track for my sliding door shutter the other day, and the Ecoshades team were very quick to respond, come over to inspect and make the necessary minor repair. After sales service fantastic.read more

When aesthetic is critical, when you are looking for perfection, a clean installation, quality products, and you need attention to detail, Ecoshades tick all the boxes. Each member of the team have always been very professional and have gone above and beyond to make sure the 30 roller blinds we needed were adapted to each room. Much appreciated too, the fact that Ecoshade organised the delivery in 2 phases in order to work around the other fit-out deliverables. We are very happy with the end result. Thank you the Ecoshade Solutions team! Highly recommended.read more

Had 2 large and one small set of shutters installed by Ecoshade and I am very pleased with the result. Th shutters themselves are exactly what we wanted and the advice they provided on product selection was spot on. The rooms have been transformed. Pricing was very reasonable, installation was fast and neat and a minor issue with one of the panels was dealt with quickly and efficiently by prompt after sale service. Recommended and would use again.read more
