The ACCC Report into the National Electricity Market (Oct 16, 2017) recognised “that price increases over the past 10 years are putting Australian businesses and consumers under unacceptable pressure”. ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said...
“Residential electricity prices have increased by 63% on top of inflation since 2007-08.”
So, while the politicians play the blame game and duck for cover over the energy crisis, how can Veneta Blinds help you reduce your energy costs?
Honeycomb Blinds are made with a unique cellular structured fabric that traps air within their cells to create layers of insulation (similar principle to double glazed windows).
Veneta Honeycomb Blinds will protect your home against heat loss in winter and unwanted solar heat gain in the hot summer months, creating a comfortable indoor living environment all year round and reducing reliance on heating and cooling appliances. This diagram shows how Honeycomb Blinds trap air within the cells, preventing unwanted warm or cool air.
Honeycomb Blinds will significantly reduce your annual home heating and cooling energy costs and lessen your carbon footprint by reducing your energy consumption. Honeycomb Blinds with a blockout fabric are the most energy efficient product in the Veneta range.
This diagram shows how Veneta’s Honeycomb Blinds work to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. In the winter months, the blind keeps warm air in and cool air out and in the summer months blocks heat from entering the home and keeps cool are inside.
It is important to understand the appliances that keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter generally use the most electricity in your home or office (on average 40% of your total energy usage).
As well as appliances, heat transfer through windows and glass doors contribute to a high level of energy loss, severely reducing the effectiveness of heating and cooling your home or office. The impact on your comfort and costs can be considerable, for example:
In winter, up to 40% of your home's heating energy can leak out through your windows
In summer, up to 87% of heat gain can be caused through uncovered glass windows and doors
In the summer month's, heat gain through an uncovered window can be 100 times greater than an uncovered insulated wall in the same location
The above statistics provided by the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy, show why it is important to take appropriate measures to insulate your windows and glass doors to reduce rising energy costs. Choosing suitable window coverings that will help to protect your home all your round, can help you save up to 34% on your energy bills.

Love my new honeycomb blinds!

What a great process - ordering samples, instructions for measuring the windows and an online ordering system that was very easy to understand and use. The blinds were delivered in the promised time frame (very well packaged) and installation was easy with clear instructions provided. The blinds have effectively stopped the heat transfer through the windows, very happy with the quality and they look great! We're extremely happy with our purchase.

Amazing service! They didn’t mind me asking a million questions before placing my order and it arrived so quick. It went up very easy and they’ve made such a difference in keeping out light and heat! Highly recommend the honeycomb blockouts.
I would definitely recommend Veneta

I purchased 2 honeycomb blinds for the "sunny side" of my house. The blinds are excellent quality and definitely help with keeping the heat out in the summer. I really like the innovative design and configuration options to optimise the light. The blinds are easy to purchase and install, following the measurement instructions. They're also very light and easy to adjust. I'd recommend ordering samples up-front; this helped us decide on the colour and type. I would definitely recommend Veneta. They were great to deal with - plenty of communication during purchase process and on the web site (I used online chat to ask questions). They followed up with a phone call to confirm receipt and satisfaction. Very impressed, well done.
I am delighted with the result !

I recently ordered a 1.6 metre honeycomb blind (blockout) for a hot west facing sliding door. I had a lot of questions mainly due to trying to decide to hang it inside or outside of the window frame. My questions were answered promptly and in detail, the installation was a breeze and I am delighted with the result ! Delivery was very quick also. I plan to order some more next year.
Best of all the blinds look amazing and the quality is excellent

I purchased 4 very large Vertical Honeycomb Blinds from Veneta Blinds and I couldn't be happier. I requested some fabric samples which were sent out so quickly and the online order process was so simple and easy it was done in no time. Liz who assisted me throughout my order was amazing, so helpful, informative and professional. The blinds were delivered on time and the installation was very quick and easy thanks to the great instructions supplied. Best of all the blinds look amazing and the quality is excellent. All this at a very competitive price. I will definitely be using Veneta Blinds again and thoroughly recommend them.

I honestly wouldn't consider any other blind company
5 out of 5 - reviewed on Oct 31, 2018
Phenomenal service, attention to detail, quality of product, and value for money. I honestly wouldn't consider any other blind company. Their staff followed up on the measurements, sent samples, enquired about the look and feel we were after, and followed up on the quality of the delivery, asked how the installation went, and then sent through the warranty. We fitted our entire (renovated) house with honeycomb blinds for the insulation properties, the fact that they 'disappear' into our timber window features, and their style and quality. I can't recommend them highly enough.
So easy !!! Awesome result!

I have bought online blinds before from a different supplier 8 years ago. I tried Veneta as the previous company didn’t have the colour I was after and I couldn’t be happy with their service, delivery and product. I am very particular and for me to be happy and write a review that says it all! installed three honeycomb blinds in less than 1 hour.

Veneta Honeycomb Blinds: Excellent Product and Service
5 out of 5 - reviewed on Jul 26, 2018
We have just installed 9 Veneta Honeycomb Blinds and have nothing but praise regarding the price, product and service. Veneta sent free samples out and we were impressed with the quality. After we ordered they kept us informed of the progress and delivered within the specified timeframe. (about 12 days) The instructions were clear and everything was well packaged to ensure there was no damage on delivery.
Delivered on time exactly 2 weeks after my order.

Very helpful customer service able to answer my questions about fitting multiple honeycomb blinds in a single window. Good value. Delivered on time exactly 2 weeks after my order. Easy to install. Look and work great exactly as described. I wish other companies would deliver on their promises the same way Veneta does. No hassles at all - a big contrast to other experiences whilst constructing our house.
Easier and lovlier than expected!

I'm a new home owner so, measuring and ordering new blinds for my new apartment was a little nerve wracking. Veneta Blinds were helpful from the word go. Of all the online stores I looked at, they had the best range of cellular blinds; single cell Vs double cell, different sized cells, cordless Vs corded and a good range of colours. I ordered some samples and they arrived quickly and Veneta Blinds called a few days later to check how I was going. They also provided a range of sample blinds so I could see the difference between single and double celled. I followed their instructions on measuring the window and my blinds fit perfectly (seriously, perfectly!). once I ordered the blinds they arrived within 3 weeks. To top it all off, they were very very easy to install - I actually did it on my own! Veneta then also followed up with me following delivery to check I was happy. All in all, fantastic service!.
Very happy with our new honeycomb blinds.

Quality Blinds and Excellent Service!

Quality Blinds and Excellent Service! We are very happy with the Honeycomb Blinds which we purchased through Veneta Blinds. They look great and fit snuggly in to the window frames. I found that the price of the blinds was very reasonable in comparison to other blind and curtain companies and are of the same quality of the more expensive blinds. The installation video and instruction leaflet provided by Veneta Blinds are very helpful, though in my case, I did find it more beneficial to use a slightly larger bit piece than what is suggested in the leaflet when drilling the guide holes into the wooden window frame. We will definitely purchase more blinds through Veneta Blinds again.

We have been renovating our home which has not been insulated. There are quite a few windows which we could not replace, so decided to try the insulating blinds. Although the walls have not been insulated yet, we can already feel the difference in the warmth of the house. In the past, in cold weather, the inside of the house has always been colder than the outside. Now we have the light and warmth. The customer service has been great. It is so refreshing to deal with people and have the personal contact.
Veneta Blinds has been awesome!

Buying blinds online could have been a really good or a terrible experience.. Luckily, my experience with Veneta Blinds has been awesome! I ordered a bunch of samples which came within days and once I selected my fabric I followed the measurement instructions to measure up three windows for block out honeycomb blinds. Veneta called me to double check all the details and my blinds then came a day or so earlier than expected. They fit perfectly and installation was so easy that I can’t believe the mark up some companies charge to measure and fit! The quality of the blinds is outstanding for the price and they are easy to operate. The end product and whole experience definitely exceeded my expectations and I will be ordering from Veneta again!
We would use this company again.

Excellent service (thanks Karen) - helped me get the measurements right for honeycomb blinds. Recommend the free samples - we changed our minds on style and colour after seeing these. Good installation instructions - easy to do, work beautifully and look great. Way less than half the cost of a conventional supplier and quality seems at least as good.

Excellent quality, value for money,customer service & communication. The honeycombs good insulation & easy to install. What did let them down in the supply chain was their contracted transport company. Poor delivery performance, blinds didn't arrive together 20 days between 1st blind & last blind delivered. When I rang to chase the last blind they didn't call back as promised.
Couldn't be happier.

After shopping around for inexpensive honeycomb blinds I ordered them from Veneta blinds. I saved over 50% compared to suppliers here in WA. The process was straight forward and if you follow the instruction on the website, you can't really get it wrong. I measured my window and terrace recesses and ordered accordingly. The few questions I had were answered promptly and the blinds arrived incredibly well packed and labelled within a week. The quality of the blinds is excellent and the installation was straight forward as well. I generally don't write reviews, but this was an excellent experience I wanted to share. Thank you, Steve, for following up with your friendly phone calls.

Recently ordered 14 Honeycomb Blinds of various sizes, for installation in bedroom, study, lounge, dining and bathroom. Great selection of colours and different fabric types. Excellent customer service in EVERY respect. We had a couple of small issues, and these blinds were replaced within a couple of weeks with fabulous communication throughout. Easy installation, no fuss. They not only look fabulous, but they really block out the minus 10 degrees outside temps. Far cheaper than other brands. Very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend to others. Thank you !!!

We saw honeycomb blinds at a friends new house, and thought that they were exactly what I needed for my study window to keep the heat and cold out.

Exactly as described and easy to install

The honeycomb blinds we ordered have been excellent - exactly as described and easy to install. The light filtering ones in particular let a really lovely soft glow into the room while maintaining privacy and reducing heat from the sun. Veneta have also been great to deal with. I had made a mistake in the size measurements on two of my blinds when ordering and Karen at Veneta was extremely helpful in re-ordering them to the correct size at cost price. Highly recommended.
Brilliant product, brilliant service, brilliant price. Couldn't be happier with our new honeycomb blinds - will be buying more as we work our way through the house. Karen was awesome - I spent about 3 weeks asking her all sorts of pernickity questions before I was willing to commit, and she very patiently helped us make the right decisions for our windows. Thanks!
Order process very easy
5 out of 5
I found the order process very easy through the Veneta website. They were in constant contact letting me know via email at every step of order, manufacture and delivery, and were super swift with delivery. I also received a courtesy call just now to see if blinds had arrived and if we were happy. Cost was reasonable - and comparable to a local shop order we did last year for our bathroom which took about 10 weeks for manufacture/delivery and installation. Installation by us with the Veneta blinds was simple (helped that I was replacing blinds so already had screw holes in our window frame). And the blinds themselves (cellular blockout) are high quality, and look fabulous in our 1914 built home with its odd sized large timber windows. We'll be ordering the next room's windows from Veneta soon.

We ordered Honeycomb Blinds just before Christmas, they arrived 2 weeks before they said they would. Very happy with the quality and price, they were less than 1/2 the price of the competitors. Easy to install ourselves.
Over 70 fabrics to choose from...
Ranging from gentle soft tones to designer patterns
Fabrics are made of polyester
The blockout fabrics have a foil lining for insulation
Cells are designed to bounce back into shape
Transparencies include Light Filter, Blockout and Sheer(day) fabric. Light Filter fabrics offer a great amount of light into the room while maintaining privacy day and night. Blockout fabrics offer maximum light prevention and exceptional insulating properties. The picture below illustrates the variation in transparencies...
Sheer(day) Colours for Day&Night Blinds
Points to note:
Blockout fabric has a room darkening effect which varies with certain conditions including fabric type, mounting method and does not make the room pitch black.
The reverse side (window side) of the fabric is 'Snow White' for Blockout fabrics and 'Snow Drift' for Light Filter fabrics.
The 'Day' colour for Day&Night blinds is located at the Top of the blind by default, however you have the option to change this on the order page.
Slight colour variations will occur between different monitors and screens and even printed brochures compared to the actual colour of the blind. If the accuracy of the colour is important to you, we recommend ordering a free colour sample to ensure you will be satisfied with your selection.
To order a free colour sample simply move your mouse over the colour you like and click 'Order Free Sample'. Then 'Checkout' by clicking 'Cart' located at the top right of every page and your samples will be posted out the same day or next business day.
Single Cell (45 or 62mm)
750 to 3600mm (7.2m side by side)
600 to 3000mm
Depth Required for inside mount
77mm (min 65mm)

Manufacturing Tolerance Height

Height Deductions we take (inside mount)
3mm (note fabric is 13mm shorter for bottom brackets)
Height Deductions we take (outside mount)
0mm (note fabric is 13mm shorter for bottom brackets)
Points to note:
'Depth Required' is the clearance required from the front to the back of your window/door frame for uninterupted operation of the blind. Please also take into account any handles or other obstructions that may interfere with the blind.
For the blind to sit neatly inside your window reveal, you will require a depth of up to 77mm. However, you will still be able to install your blind inside the reveal with a minimum depth of 65mm, which will result in the top of the blind slightly protruding from the reveal.
For blinds installed on the inside of the window/door frame, please provide the inside window/door frame size. We will take the relevant deductions to ensure the blind fits nicely into your window/door frame.
For blinds installed on the outside of the window/door frame, please provide the exact measurements you would like the blind to be manufactured to.
