“Made from timber or aluminium blades, our Venetian Blinds are modern and functional, offering excellent privacy, light control and ventilation. Easy to use, Venetian Blinds allow you to open and close the blades to any position and control the direction of sunlight throughout your room or home. They can be recessed or face fitted, meaning the Venetian Blinds can be installed inside the window frame or on the architrave bordering the window. In addition, Venetian Blinds can be locked into position at the bottom using a pin and bracket system which makes them suitable for glass doors or windows which are frequently opened and closed. A great choice to co-ordinate with <a href="https://www.dollarcurtainsandblinds.com.au/product-range/curtains/">Curtains, </a><a href="/block-out-curtains">Drapes</a> , and <a href="https://www.dollarcurtainsandblinds.com.au/product-range/curtains/accessories/">Tiebacks.</a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">The difference in our Venetian Blinds is in the detail.

Coated Fabrics.

You may have come across the term ‘fabric coating’. This refers to fabrics that have a lining applied to the back of the fabric.

 

Coated fabrics help to block out light and generally do not need an additional layer of lining, which makes them a cost-effective fabric choice.

 

In rooms where you do not need daytime privacy, a coated fabric Curtain may be the only window covering you require to achieve total privacy and block out at night.

 

dollar curtains + blinds have a huge range of coated fabrics to choose from, including an array of colours, prints and textures. For quality and value, choose from the Curtains+ complimentary making range.

What are the 3 most important things that make your home feel like a home?

Warm tones. Cosy textures in the furniture. Light filled. The open fireplace.

 

What was your biggest splurge when designing your home?

Sheer Curtains. The filtered light absolutely transforms the atmosphere in any room.

 

What is your most cherished possession?

Although not a possession, my children! If I were to choose a “thing” it would be a diamond and coral ring I own that took me months to save for when I was 16. I lost it on a trip home to New Zealand and my husband surprised me by buying me another one when he knew how devastated I was. It has so much sentimental value now.
