Blinds for Residential Properties - What You Need to Know

Whatever your home's style and wherever you live, there's a style of blind to suit your taste and needs.

Traditional

Whether you're redecorating your villa, tarting up your townhouse or kitting out your bach, venetian blinds or rollerblinds come in a range of styles completely in sync with the Kiwi look.

Classic wooden venetian blinds come in western red cedar and western hemlock, both of which have the perfect natural warmth for New Zealand homes. Or, if you're after a consistent colour through your home, wooden venetians are also available customised from whatever chart you've already chosen for your walls.

Designer rollerblinds can also be decorated with images of Kiwiana to add that final flourish to traditional surroundings and fauxwood venetian blinds are a classic and easy-clean choice for kitchens and bathrooms.

Formal

Roller blinds, vertical blinds and venetian blinds can all be used to add elegance to a formal room or home. Uniformity is a tried and tested way to add consistency and style to a house, and decorating throughout with a single choice of the right blind can add a touch of class.

Wooden blinds can be painted to match interior designers' colour schemes or left to their natural beauty. And nothing speaks of sophistication more than customised roller blinds - just choose the perfect image to match your home's style.

Casual

New Zealand is renowned for its casual style, a jeans-and-jandals approach to life.

Roller blinds and venetian blinds offer the easy choice when it comes to decorating your home. Couple that with being able to measure up and fit your blinds yourself and you've got the perfect Kiwi answer to dressing your windows.

Aluminium or faux wood venetian blinds are easy to clean and look wonderful in the bathroom or kitchen, and blackout blinds are the simple way to make sure your bedroom's dark and private when you want it to be.

No Kiwi home should be without sunscreen roller blinds, the best and easiest way to keep out the glare and UV rays while allowing enough light through, or light filtering rollerblinds to block out the sight of that ugly neighbouring home while keeping your own room nice and bright.

Contemporary

The affordable way to create the contemporary look in your home is by choosing the right blinds and using them in clever interior design. Why not use vertical blinds to divide a room, or aluminium venetian blinds throughout your kitchen and bathroom to match stainless steel fittings and fixtures.

But the ultimate style statement is to customise your home with personal touches: and nothing is more personal than using your own images for a designer roller blind.
