It’s an age-old argument – are blinds better than curtains? You probably know our position on this discussion given what we sell! We specialise in blockout blinds in NZ as well as every other type of blind, such as Verticals, Venetians, Timber and roller blinds. We believe blinds have many advantages over curtains, but that doesn’t mean that the latter has no place in your home. If you are currently weighing up whether you should have blinds or curtains in your windows, we’ll give you our side of the argument. We hope you find it useful.  

Our custom-made blinds will exactly fit any size window so they offer great energy efficiency. As an example, even when open and letting in natural light, our Venetian blinds still provide a protective barrier against the cold or heat, giving you great energy savings throughout the day. In this regard, they are much more flexible than curtains. Our aluminium blinds are also hard wearing, durable, and able to withstand moisture in kitchens and bathrooms. They’re just a few of the benefits that blinds will bring you. Here is a more comprehensive list to help you decide whether they’re right for you.

  • Lots of colours and designs are now available in modern blinds making them more of a feature than ever before 
  • Can offer superior insulation qualities and good energy savings when exactly fitted to a window.
  • A cleaner and more minimal interior design feel is a better fit for modern building designs. 
  • More durable and stronger than curtains particularly when made from aluminium.
  • Can be used anywhere in the home including rooms where there is a lot of moisture i.e. bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Can filter in light without having to be fully closed or open. 
  • Can reduce glare and UV rays while still allowing natural light into the home or office. 
  • Easier to clean and maintain – it’s a breeze to clean modern blinds thanks to new cleaning tools. On the other hand, it’s a little more difficult to remove curtains, put them through the wash, and re-hang. 

That’s our side of the great debate! Modern blinds are good looking and long-lasting and the perfect choice for any home or office. We’re happy for you to get in touch with us to tell us about your home and office and we’ll help you decide on the best options for you. And, of course, we’ll be just as delighted to give you a free measure and quote.
