Blinds – the Modern Way to Keep Out the Sun

When it comes to interior decorating and keeping out the sun, we have come a long way. From lightweight curtains to high-tech blinds designed specifically to suit a variety of needs, the range can be somewhat overwhelming to navigate.

As modern homeowners, we have never been more aware of the benefits that blinds provide when it comes to energy reduction, interior design elegance, versatility and, of course, sun-free comfort. What are your best options for modern design and optimal lighting control? Read on to find out.

Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are perhaps the most adaptable option when it comes to blinds. They come in a variety of colours and configurations while also having various options for features, such as spring assisted, manually operated with a chain, or even remote controlled. You can select from roller sunscreen blinds, translucent roller blinds or roller blockout blinds. These options can also be customised to compliment roller sunscreen blinds and give you maximum natural light during the day and absolute darkness of a night.

Timber or PVC Blinds

Wooden blinds add immediate warmth and class to any home. If you are searching for the wooden look on a budget, Artwood blinds are an artificial timber lookalike manufactured out of PVC. For both options (Wooden and Artwood), the cord function allows for blinds to drop down or be suspended at an ideal height, blocking out the sun completely or setting a height that reduces glare. The individual slats can also swivel to block light completely or open up to allow light to shine through.

Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds have been a much-loved option in Auckland homes and businesses for a number of years. Due to the massive range of colours and their simplistic design, they are adaptable enough to suit a traditional home or business, as well as modern homes and businesses. As with timber blinds, venetian blinds are height adjustable and the swivel slats allow for light control and privacy.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are perfect for sliding glass doors and windows. Vertical blinds can be pulled across the entirety of the window or door, or you can have them partially opened to your liking, allowing for airflow if windows or doors are open.

Because of the ability to rotate 180 degrees, vertical blinds give you great control over direct light while still allowing for diffused light and views.
