    When it comes to decorating the house, every house owner wants to add their personal touch and feel to everything. And where this covers things like the furniture and décor, it also includes the drapery. At Dollar Curtains & Blinds, we enable you to achieve this through bespoke curtains that resonate with the mood and visual appeal you want around your home.

    Whether you’re looking for classic elegance, eclectic chic or a modern contemporary feel, curtains from Dollar Curtains & Blinds provide colour and impact to every room. In addition to the exciting and endless visual opportunities they offer, there are many practical reasons that make them a wise and long-term investment.

    Superior Quality at Affordable Prices

    With bespoke curtains from Dollar Curtains & Blinds, homeowners can steer safe of generic curtains that lack quality and durability. Such window treatments typically last for a shorter while before they get sun damaged or experience tear.

    On the other hand, if you select from our exclusive Free Make curtain fabric range, not only do you get superior and Australian-made custom-made curtains, but you also won’t have to pay for the making of your curtains! So you can enjoy all of the practical benefits which make custom-made curtains a wise choice but for an affordable price. We also make it easy for you when selecting your fabric and colour with our full-length curtain samples which you can take home and hang up.

    Improved Energy Efficiency

    Custom-made curtains not only look better, but they also can save you money by cutting your energy bill. Our curtains have insulating properties that help block the outdoor temperatures from entering your home, and this is especially important in the upcoming Winter. Being one of the best window treatments at improving your home’s insulation, drapes can preserve up to 20% of the total heat in your home.

    Hence, custom-made curtains are more than just items that add to a room’s visual appeal. They are a great investment from an energy-efficiency perspective as well.

    Flexible Light Control

    Many homeowners struggle to find a good balance of light control with window treatments. Often, natural lighting is limited in a space and you don’t want to cover your windows with thick curtains that block it out. Our Free Make curtains provide excellent light control, privacy and reduce outside noise levels, allowing you to effortlessly and effectively control your environment depending on the occasion and your mood.

    By getting bespoke curtains from Dollar Curtains and Blinds, you can get the best fabric while enjoying all of the other benefits that come with curtains as mentioned above!

    If you’re on the lookout to update your window coverings you can’t beat Plantation Shutters from Dollar Curtains & Blinds. Packing aesthetic appeal, practicality, and functionality into one, our Plantation Shutters are a great addition to homes across Australia!

    Here are a few of the many reasons why so many Australian homeowners are opting for Dollar Curtains and Blinds’ Plantation Shutters.


    Strength
    Our Plantation Shutters are made from long-lasting and durable materials so this investment in your home is long term and will increase the value of your home. They won’t deteriorate or warp out of shape, and so you save up a lot of unnecessary expenditure overtime.


    Aesthetic Appeal
    Plantation Shutters have a distinct, timeless appeal about them and have stayed in fashion for years. Because of their unique style, they look great with pretty much any interior theme and décor. In addition to the style aspect, Plantation Shutters are also extremely practical and provide excellent control of light and airflow. Most importantly, you have ultimate peace of mind with no cords, making DCB’s shutters child and pet safe.



    Insulation
    This is a benefit that also has wider advantages from a seasonal perspective. Plantation Shutters insulate your home very effectively, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Think about this as a way to reduce heating and air-conditioning costs through energy saving. They also offer great insulation against noise from outdoors.



    Cost-effective maintenance
    Think about all the things around the house that strain the wallet when it comes to maintenance. Cleaning the pools and having someone mow the lawn aren’t exactly the cheapest things to do. Plantation Shutters can be maintained by yourself and are easy to clean. An occasional quick wipe down is all they need. Dust does not collect on shutters in the same manner it does on fabric making them perfect for those who suffer from allergies and want to avoid dusty environments. Or if you're just interested in a low maintenance window covering solution!



    Installation
    With all the benefits, installing Plantation Shutters might still seem like a challenge. Actually not, experts from Dollar Curtains and Blinds can install them for you, and make sure that the final product looks and functions perfectly.

    Curb Appeal

    Let’s not forget about how Plantation Shutters can transform the facade of your home. Installing DCB’s shutters across your home’s front windows can make a huge impact to your home’s curb appeal which in addition adds value to your home. Along with those aesthetic benefits shutters will also add sound insulation from outside road and traffic noise.
    Ensure that you opt for true custom-made shutters like those from DCB which are designed & handcrafted specifically to fit your window dimensions for a snug fit on your windows.
