Blinds. They keep the world out, seal our lives in and hold the sun to account, at least a little, as Queensland starts to burn through another summer. Whether you’re concerned about privacy, desire a little shade or wish for a slice of sunlight without opening the windows, blinds have become a featured component of most Australian households. Curtains just can’t hold up against the utility of blinds. But which blinds are right for you? NETA Home & Commercial have matched up thousands of customers with the ideal blinds for their needs. How do you know which blinds should be shielding you from the afternoon glare? Let’s take a look at your options.
Lights On, Lights Off
Black out shades prohibit the presence of light in even the sunniest room, effectively acting as wall between you and the outside world. Light filtering blinds can be found in most homes, as they tend to allow a decent amount of light escape through the cracks. Black out shades are perfect for those who work in shifts or entertainment rooms, where glare directly affects the viewing experience. Both forms can cover both pull down shades (single pieces of cloth) or adjustable slats.
The electrity bill is a sore point for many of us. As the mercury rises, so does our tendency to switch on atmospheric assistance in the form of an aircon unit – satisfying until you receive the quarterly account. What many people don’t realize is their windows can actually counteract the temperature of their home, insulating against heat and cutting through the midday sun. NETA offer a range of outdoor blinds perfectly suited to achieve this cost saving insulation and guard your home from the fierce UV rays of the sun.
Shut Them Out
Shutters are a stylish choice, adding both an aesthetic appeal and a privacy saving functionality to a space. Our LUXAFLEX range are designed to control heat and light penetration while looking smart against the backdrop of your chosen décor. Easy to clean and attractive to prospective buyers, should you decide to sell your property, shutters represent a fusion of function, resilience and flair.
Venetians are considered classic, elegant and enviable, as their light flexibility allows for maximum outside exposure, or if you choose, none at all. They can be manipulated to suit a number of window shapes and come readily available in a number of textures and colours. They are the original all-rounders and very common in Australian households.
