Vertical Blinds:

All the components and fabric for our vertical blinds are sourced from well-known Australian brands and companies. We provide a 2-year warranty on the installation and components, and 5-years for the fabric.

Some of the features and benefits of vertical blinds include:

  • An affordable option that is great for doing all the doors and windows in a house on a budget.
  • The ability to rotate the blinds allows you total control over the level of light and heat that you want to allow into your home.
  • Great for big doors and windows – they are available up to 5m high, whereas roller blinds are only available up to 3m, so if you have a particularly high door or window, vertical blinds are your best option.

Vertical Blinds FAQs

Yes, vertical blinds are an excellent choice for large windows and sliding doors. Their design allows for easy adjustment, enabling you to control light and privacy effectively. The vertical orientation of the slats means they can cover extensive areas without becoming cumbersome. This makes them an ideal solution for residential and commercial spaces with expansive glass surfaces.

Vertical blinds operate using a simple mechanism that allows you to tilt the slats and slide them across the window or door. A chain or wand typically controls the tilt, letting you adjust the angle of the slats to manage light and privacy. To open or close the blinds, pull a cord or use a wand to slide the slats to one side. This straightforward operation makes vertical blinds user-friendly and versatile.

A Vertical blinds can contribute to energy efficiency in your home or office. By adjusting the slats, you can control the amount of sunlight entering the room, helping to regulate indoor temperatures. Keeping the blinds partially closed in the summer can reduce heat gain; in the winter, closing them can provide an additional layer of insulation. This helps maintain a comfortable environment and may reduce reliance on heating and cooling systems.

While vertical blinds are not specifically designed for soundproofing, they can somewhat help reduce outside noise. The fabric or material of the slats can absorb sound, creating a quieter indoor environment. For better noise reduction, consider combining vertical blinds with other window treatments, such as heavy curtains or double-glazed windows, to enhance the overall acoustic insulation.

Yes, vertical blinds in Wollongong are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns to suit any decor style. Whether you prefer neutral tones that blend seamlessly with your interiors or bold patterns that make a statement, you will find options to match your taste. Many suppliers offer customisation, allowing you to choose the perfect design for your space.

To measure vertical blinds, measure the width and height of the window or door where they will be installed. For inside mounts, measure the width at the top, middle and bottom using the narrowest measurement. For the height, measure from the top of the opening to the bottom in three places and use the longest measurement. For outside mounts, measure the width and height of the area you want to cover, adding extra for overlap. Accurate measurements ensure a proper fit and optimal functionality.

The installation process for vertical blinds in Wollongong involves a few straightforward steps. The professionals begin with mounting the brackets at the top of the window or door frame. Next, they attach the headrail to the brackets, ensuring it is secure and level. Once the headrail is in place, the vertical slats are attached individually. Finally, they test the blinds to ensure the slats tilt and slide smoothly. Although the process may appear straightforward, it is recommended to use professional installation services for the best results.
