When it comes to blinds, more and more people are opting for the convenience of roller blinds. These not only look up to date and modern but they are also extremely practical. There is a variety of designs available from Newport Timber Shutters and Blinds. You are not limited to choosing wooden blinds; you can select from a wide range of Aluminium, Composite or Hardwood blinds.

Choosing between blinds and shutters can sometimes be difficult so here are some of the Benefits of Roller Blinds Gold Coast:

1) They lend instant style to any room and will update and lift your décor. They are a classic crowd pleaser that never really dates.

2) You can have them custom-made by Newport Timber Shutters and Blinds so that they fit in perfectly with your home. Their experts can come to measure and give you a free quote or you can simply measure your windows yourself – whatever is easiest for you.

3) Roller blinds really improve the insulation in your home – the sun is kept out, together with much of the hot air. They can also help to prevent the air conditioned air from escaping.

4) From a privacy standpoint, they are hard to beat. Because of the materials used, the blinds are opaque and will cut off any chance of someone looking in from the outside.

5) They are simple to install, even if you decide to have motorised blinds they will come with full installation instructions. Should you prefer not to install the blinds yourself, Newport Timber Shutters and Blinds will do the job for you.

6) They can be raised or lowered in terms of how much natural light you want to allow into the room. They can also be raised part of the way. When not in use, they roll up, out of sight.

7) They are suitable for highly humid or steamy environments and are, therefore, the perfect way to finish off your kitchen or bathroom.

8) Having the blinds motorised is really simple and very convenient – with a touch of the button the blinds can be raised or lowered.

Maintaining your Roller Blinds

As with all products from Newport Timber Shutters and Blinds, these roller blinds are easy to keep clean and maintain. Simply wipe them down to ensure that they stay looking as good as new. Use a dry cloth or feather duster to remove any accumulation of dust.

There is no reason why your outdoor areas such as entertainment areas or exterior windows shouldn’t look just as good if not better than your indoors. Exterior blinds are a stylish addition that don’t just look good. They offer protection of your privacy, protect from harsh sunlight and cold winds and keep out the rain. There are varied styles you can choose from and here we will take a look at the various outdoor blinds Brisbane available.
