CASE STUDY 1: HOW NZ BLINDS CAN FIND THE PERFECT FIT WHATE

Three recent orders from NZ Blinds’ New Zealand factory show exactly how versatile our range of sunshades, roller blinds and venetian blinds are.

Case study #1: The new-build home

When a couple received an offer they couldn’t refuse on a beach-front home in Auckland, they decided to cash in and moved to the new Millwater subdivision in Silverdale where they could fit out a new-build home to their own specifications.

Auckland’s vibrant property market means more and more people are moving into new homes and this type of customer is increasingly finding NZ Blinds the perfect place to find their choice of window dressing.

The key factors for houses on new subdivisions are sun control and privacy – often people are moving from homes where they’ve lived for many years and they’re used to having their own space and have become used to how the morning and evening sun shines into their living spaces.

But when you’re planning your new home – especially in an area where trees and vegetation is usually still young and undeveloped – it’s important to consider how to control how much light is going to get into your living spaces and how visible you are to passers-by.

For our case study, the couple’s new home had strong westly sun in the afternoon so they chose a mix of sunshades and thermal roller blinds for the main living spaces and faux wood venetian blinds for their bathrooms.

The thermal roller blinds they chose were the Urban Shade fabric, which is practical (it gives great light, heat and UV control) and stylish for a new home (its soft-to-touch coating comes in a range of 10 urban colours which really fit in with the clean lines favoured in new builds).

The faux wood venetian blinds are durable in New Zealand conditions and practical for cleaning.

The beauty of being contacted by customers whose home is still being built is that NZ Blinds is able to give a quote for the whole house-lot of blinds straight off the plans – there’s no need to wait for the windows to be fitted. We can then arrange for the blinds to be manufactured and delivered to fit in with the timetable for all the home’s joinery.

It’s also the perfect time to consider whether you want to fit motorised blinds to windows in hard-to-reach places or in modern living spaces with all the latest gadgets and labour-saving devices, or even to custom-design your own designer roller blinds to create a centrepiece or personalised feel to a room.
