Dollar Curtains & Blinds have added the final touches to complete this new home's contemporary and cutting edge design.

The window coverings in this home situated in Mt Martha, Victoria, have been designed and installed by Dollar Curtains & Blinds Mornington team. Sheer curtains, suncreen roller blinds, blockout roller blinds and blockout curtains were all chosen and co-ordinated to finish off the interior design of this home on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.   

Sheer Curtains and Sunscreen Roller Blinds Ideas for Living Room

The combination of sheer curtains and sunscreen roller blinds is key to the success of this home’s interior design. In the living spaces, the sheers add softness and bring a sense of relaxation to the room whilst the sunscreen roller blinds aid the insulation and privacy. Both ensure the clients keep their beautiful water views whilst maintaining their privacy.

From the entry of the home sheer curtains frame the antique doors and the pencil pleat curtain heading gathers the fabric from the ceiling with a soft informal drape.

For the sunscreen roller blinds, the dcb designers Tempo View fabric was an essential choice. Tempo View offers UV protection, glare reduction and heat control, insulating the rooms to keep them cool in summer and warm in winter. In addition to its insulation qualities, the fabric also protects the home’s floorboards, carpet and furniture from fading.

The indirect and diffused light created through layered window treatments is essential in creating a relaxed mood. Through the kitchen and dining space, the sheer curtains add movement and allow for natural light and soft breezes into the room, creating a resort ambiance style.

Adding texture really matters in the success of a home’s window treatments and it’s applied here in the form of the finely woven sheer curtain fabrics and sunscreen blind fabrics.

In the dining area, heavy lined drapes were chosen for privacy from the side of the house to ensure complete block out and added insulation.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds Wavefold curtain heading was selected throughout the home in the living and dining rooms and master suite to create a consistent look across all rooms.

The Wavefold creates a sleek and contemporary effect when used with both sheer and solid fabrics, allowing the curtains to drape with a continuous wave, which is smooth, simple and elegant.

As well as complementing the aesthetics of this modern home, the Wavefold is also a highly practical choice. The style is easy to operate and creates a neat stack back, which allows the clients to maximize the natural light entering through the windows and leaving them with minimal obstruction to their views.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds have fulfilled the brief of delivering a master suite that is the client’s private sanctuary with the tonal hues and soft drape of the St Tropez sheer fabric.

Capital City Chic

Infused with contemporary style, the combination of plantation shutters and sheer curtains creates the ultimate refined look for this modern canberra home.

Given the abundance of sunlight flooding the home, plantation shutters were the ideal choice. The real beauty of shutters is you can tilt the easy to use louvers to any position, giving you complete light control.

With the windows facing the east, protecting the inside of the home from the harsh sunlight was also a must, so dcb designs Basswood shutters were chosen. Constructed from premium Basswood timber, the shutters offer high insulation properties, and are also tested to endure the harshest temperatures of the Australian sun.

Ensuring light control, the DCB designs shutters were also installed for their UV protection. In the bay window the shutters louvres are easily adjustable to re-direct the light away from the upholstered seating to prevent fading to the furniture.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds has also installed the shutters with no corner gaps, allowing for complete protection from UV damage. The shutters’ small projection also proves ideal in this space, and in the hallways, ensuring the window coverings intrude as little as possible into the interiors.

Plantation shutters are highly functional when used on doorways. Shutters are fixed to the doors, allowing no interference when the doors are opened and closed.

Dollar Curtains & Blinds has also designed the shutters with cutouts, allowing for the shutters to be installed alongside the handles on the French doors.

Introducing tactile sheer curtains in the main living areas softens the architectural look of the shutters, creating calming and inviting spaces. The curtains were designed with a triple pinch pleat heading, creating a classic, timeless look, and the décor rods tie in with the door handles and light fittings, ensuring a consistent style throughout the home.

Plantation Shutters & Sheer Curtains

Plantation shutters & sheers as seen on the block triple threat

Plantation shutters can transform your home offering you complete flexibility with light control, privacy and insulation, and above all they are a window treatment that will increase the value of your home. So its no wonder why contestants on The Block Triple Threat are getting on board and fitting out their windows with Plantation Shutters, adding clean lines and a stylish finish.

Several of The Block contestants have opted for white plantation shutters through their bedrooms, living areas, bathrooms and ensuites. Theres not a more sleek and contemporary colour choice than white. The light colour choice also tends to recede which aids in opening up the spaces and making smaller rooms feel larger.

Plantation Shutters have been a key design statement in several Block contestants bathrooms & ensuites. New generation PVC shutters would be used in these wet rooms as they are UV and water resistant to withstand fading, cracking or warping, perfect for windows or doors directly adjacent to these areas.

Along with shutters, The Block contestants have utilised sheer curtains throughout The Triple Threat season and past seasons. Sheer Curtains really do set the tone for The Block rooms interiors. The Block sheers create softly filtered light and allow for views outside to be enjoyed whilst providing privacy. Sheer Curtains add softness and bring a sense of relaxation to the rooms.

A renovation which has perfectly used the combination of plantation shutters and sheer curtains is this contemporary home in our capital city of Canberra. In this home Dollar Curtains & Blinds meet the brief perfectly creating the ultimate refined look for their clients.
