If you’ve just invested in a new property to call home, or you’re renovating your home or apartment, you might be wondering what window cover you should be choosing; curtains, shutters or blinds. At Decor Blinds, we have over 35 years of experience and an expert team of design specialists that can run you through the pros and cons of each window treatment, so you don’t make the wrong choice for you, your family, your furniture and your overall aesthetic.

At the end of the day, we believe that Roller Blinds, Roller Shutters, and Vertical Blinds have all the same benefits of curtains, such as: elegance, aesthetic, complete sun blackout and heat insulation, whilst maintaining the extra benefits that curtains don’t have, such as customisation and versatility.

Providing Sunlight Control

The most obvious reason to invest in curtains, shutters or blinds, is the ability to control the sunlight levels in your home. Whether you like to sleep in, you prioritise privacy or you just live in a place with a lot of sunlight, the best option for sunlight control are our Blinds or Shutters. Not only are they a great option for getting the value for your money, but they have internal controls that are easy to use, so there’s less fussing around to get the perfect level of light.

Contributing to Aesthetic

To contribute to a light and airy aesthetic, in either a traditional or contemporary home, we recommend Vertical Blinds over any curtain choice. When you want to maximise privacy and minimise the effect of harsh Sydney sunlight, but also maintain a modern look in your home, vertical blinds will always trump curtains in terms of regulation and control. They’re so versatile and great for every application. Get maximum control over light levels and privacy through simple adjustment of the blades and never waste time on your dusty, heavy curtains again!

Temperature Regulation & Insulation

As well as protection from Brisbane’s harsh weather, storms and bushfires, roller shutters offer premium energy savings on heating and cooling through their optimised weather and airflow control. Not only are they perfect for controlling the light in your home, but they are also amazing at temperature regulation, both in the winter season and in summer. By providing extra insulation to your bedroom or study, roller shutters will produce far more bang for your buck than any option of decorative curtains would, so to make the right choice in both practicality and aesthetics, call the team at Decor Blinds today!
