When it comes to decorating your home, there are more factors than simple aesthetics that come into play. In our hot summers, it is especially important to be able to block out the sun but still allow a free flow of air through the house. 

Louvre Doors

An elegant solution is to install Louvre doors and matching Venetian blinds Brisbane. Aesthetically, Louvre doors and matching shutters create a more airy feeling in the home and look elegant and fresh at the same time.

The Advantages

Louvre doors are elegant, cost effective and simple to install. They soften the light that comes into the room but do not darken the room completely and they also allow air to flow through.

A big advantage is that these shutters and doors are lighter than solid wood would be, but they are just as stable. Practically, this means that you are able to get away with a good deal more customisation than you would have in the case of a solid wooden shutter.

Having this stable wooden base to work on also has some great advantages when it comes to your own décor. You can choose to leave the wood plain or you could stain it or paint it. When you become tired of the colour, a lick of paint will sort it out.

The Disadvantages

It isn’t all sunshine and roses with Louvre doors, however. Fortunately, there is really only one disadvantage and it is pretty easy to fix.

Louvre doors and shutters can attract dust and can be more painful to clean. However, running a clean, dry paintbrush or broom over them will usually make the task a lot easier and faster.

Considering the advantages involved in getting Louvre doors and shutters, it is quite obvious why they are such a popular choice. They are used as shutters on windows, as doors for closets, entry doors and room dividers.

The main consideration when installing Louvre doors or shutters is to choose a company that produces a high quality product.

Newport Custom Shutters and Blinds are dedicated to making sure that every shutter or blind that they sell is perfectly finished. Being the best is an obsession with Newport Custom Shutters and Blinds and they believe that there is no need for anyone to settle for off-the-shelf second best.

Every Reason to Choose Blinds

If you are building a home, renovating or redecorating you will be faced with a few decisions about the changes or inclusions to your interior. Your window coverings will naturally be one of the first choices you will make as you won’t want to leave your windows exposed too long, affording people a direct view into your home.

Your choice is between curtains and blinds. Curtains have been around for many years and served their purpose for some time; however, blinds Brisbane are becoming increasingly more popular in homes, and with good reason.

What Curtains Can’t Provide

Security and Privacy

The main reason we add window coverings to our homes is for privacy and security. We don’t want strangers or opportunistic thieves being able to see inside our homes to see our families go about their business or view what kind of valuables are held within.

Curtains can be drawn, but there is usually a gap on either side of the window and in-between the middle if there are two curtains. These gaps are where people who really want to see inside are able to do so. Granted, the view won’t be a very clear one, but it’s still not a visual access that you want to allow.

Curtains can also be blown about by breezes and this may cause the rings to slide along the rod allowing them to open. This means if you are not at home and you have left windows open there is a chance that your curtains have parted, exposing your home's interior.

Sound, Light & Heating Control

Blinds allow you much more control over how much light is let in compared with curtains. You can easily adjust blinds to let in a little or a lot of light. If these are mounted on the inside of your window frame, there will be no gaps that allow rays of light to enter when the blinds are closed. With curtains, they are normally mounted on the outside of the window frame and light will still make its way into your home.

Blinds are fantastic for blocking out exterior noises and allow you a more peaceful experience. Timber blinds in particular are well known for their sound proofing qualities.

Curtains can only offer so much protection from the cold or heat radiating outside your windows. When it comes to the hot and cold months, the best way to keep your interior heated or cooled is by adding blinds to your windows. These are especially useful when you use an air conditioner for heating or cooling.

Good Looks

The curtain has had its day although it was modern in its time. However, today it is blinds that are more aesthetically appealing. Blinds offer a modern and sophisticated look and have the ability to suit any décor and come in a great range of styles and finishes.
