Venetian blinds and shutters are both adjustable, the idea being to regulate the amount and angle of light entering a building. However, venetian blinds are for interior use, are lightweight and cannot withstand too much battering. Shutters are more robust, can be used outside, and apart from light can also keep out rain and offer security too.
It depends on how much control you want over the light. If you’re happy to have your blind block out a solid portion of light, then a roller blind is best. A single piece of material, the roller blind can be all the way down or only covering the top of the window or anywhere in between. A Venetian blind can be all the way down and still allow light to come in from every point of the window depending on how far the slats are open. So for better light control, Venetians win hands down.
Awnings extend away from the house, and are used to keep sun and rain off the house. Keeping the sun off the external walls keeps the house interior temperature lower. An exterior blind is mostly used for privacy, since they lie flat against the windows. Awnings have the advantage of acting as extra protection from the rain and sun for things like washing lines and allowing people to be just outside the house and still be protected from the elements.
Our popular products include venetian blinds, awnings, outdoor and indoor blinds, plantation shutters, Roman blinds and horizontal blinds. In fact, blinds have replaced curtains in many homes with their sleek profile, ease of cleaning and ability to adjust light more readily in the case of horizontal and venetian blinds and plantation shutters.
Because of their flexibility when it comes to regulating light and heat, external blinds are a very popular choice from Main Beach to Coolangatta and all suburbs in between. Apart from keeping out the sun, external blinds and shutters protect houses from Queensland’s rainy season and can be lockable.
Indoor blinds can be made from aluminium or wood for venetian blinds or plantation shutters, or natural or synthetic fabric in the case of horizontal blinds, Roman and roller blinds. Exterior blinds are made from PVC mesh, metal slats and wood, which give varying levels of opacity and weather the elements better than indoor blinds.
The winner when it comes to ease of cleaning is the internal roller blind. Made from a single piece of material which can be easily cleaned, such as nylon. Unlike venetian blinds which have individual slats, a roller blind’s single surface makes cleaning a breeze.
On average it takes about three hours to install shutters to the windows on a single storey home. However, this is an estimate only and it’s best to contact us to find out about your situation. Things that affect the time include whether the windows are extra large or shaped unusually. Are they high up, or easy to access from the ground? Will the shutters need to be customised or did you buy ones that exactly fit your windows? Are there old shutters that need removing before the new ones are installed?
Call us for a consultation. The more time we spend with you on the phone and the more information we request, the more likely we are going to do a professional installation that meets your needs.
