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.

Motorised dual cell honeycomb blinds - great company, great product
5 out of 5 - reviewed on June 13, 2019
We ordered our first blinds from Veneta two years ago. We now have 10 motorised dual cell honeycomb blinds, 1 vertical single cell honeycomb slider, and 1 day/night manual dual cell honeycomb blind. I did a lot of price comparisons before our first order, and during one of Veneta's regular 20% off sales the value for money is exellent compared to others available at the time. The company is excellent and easy to deal with from samples to ordering to additional info to warranty claims. It is incredibly convenient to open and shut all motorised blinds with a single button press on the remote. It took some effort, but we have also connected the blinds through HomeAssist home automation so can now open/shut them remotely and have them on a timer to open in the mornings. We live in a cold climate and noticed a different in comfort in the house over winter having thermally efficient blinds on the windows. The optional 'light guards' also assist in reducing air circulation past cold windows. I would happily recommend this company and especially their motorised dual cell honeycomb blinds to anyone.
Simply a great Australian Service and Product!

I purchased online 4 motorized honeycomb blinds of different widths and drops several weeks ago. The very next business day I received a call to discuss the order and Veneta Staff checked I had everything had been considered (even though it does remind you on the website too). I also received regular email communications to keep me up to date with the order. I received my order 1 day early, it was a perfect fit and the quality was top notch!! All this was 1/2 the “special end of Financial year Sale” price I was getting from 3 other local suppliers!!! In short - for 1/2 the price I got top service, amazing quality and delivery at the same time a local supplier was offering. Finally - it took me less and an hour to hang all the blinds. SUPER HAPPY!!!! Thank you so much Veneta!
Will certainly be using again and recommending them to others

Great service from start to finish for our honeycomb blinds. We were contacted to check our measurement on a more complex window/door before the order was accepted and given excellent advice re best way to proceed. Delivery was very fast and though we don't have the blinds actually up as we are waiting for painters to finish I have checked them against the windows and they all look fine.Will certainly be using again and recommending them to others.
Top product and top service

We are so happy with the honeycombs blinds they look absolutely amazing and were so easy to install- My wife installed them without any problems. From the ordering of the samples to the delivery of the blinds Veneta were very helpful and rang us with follow up calls to ensure our order was correct and rang again once the blinds were delivered. So pleased with the colour and also we chose the cordless blinds which are easy to operate and no worries about the grand kids tangling in cords. Thank you Veneta - top product and top service.
Perfect blinds, very happy!

Honeycomb blinds look great

Ordered and self installed 3 double honeycomb blinds with dimensions 126mm wide, 3100mm high. They look fantastic. Veneta website is so easy to use. I love the fact that you can obtain an immediate quote without having to talk to any sales person. Blinds were safely delivered within 14 days and securely packed. Only small issue I had was clicking the blinds into the brackets. This was mainly due to the 3100mm height and a fixed 300mm fixed pelmet. Was difficult to exert any force balancing on top of the ladder.
We're really pleased

We purchased a variety of honeycomb blinds (double & single cell and with and without day-night). They were all very easy to order and simple to install. We're really pleased with the look of the blinds and the ease of operation. I had my doubts about the block-out portion of the blind dropping to the bottom of the sill during the day but they are very compact and this allows us to partially drop them to let in early morning light while keeping privacy.
We are thrilled with the results

The whole process was so easy. The customer service was also really helpful and helped us order the most appropriate honeycomb blinds for our room.

I received my double honeycomb blind today & installed it immediately. It looks great. It was very easy to install & looks as good as the ones available locally which are at least double the price. The Veneta team kept me informed regarding delivery & the experience was totally stress free. I have more windows to cover so I will definitely be ordering more blinds or maybe curtains. Thanks so much team Veneta.
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.
I cannot recommend both the blinds and Veneta service highly enough.

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 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.

I needed a double honeycomb blind for thermal insulation over some glass bricks. I should have done something about this earlier. These blinds are great.

I searched on Google for online blind suppliers and several came up. After researching several suppliers we settled on Veneta. The site was easy to use from deciding on the colour, and inputting the measurements, we then ordered the blinds. I made one phone call to clarify a small query I had and that was resolved. As we were away at the time the blinds were supposed to delivered we requested a delay in the delivery time. The blinds arrived as requested, were installed following the instructionsand the look great.We will be ordering more as the process was so easy, when I spoke to staff the were so helpful. I would definitely recommend dealing with Veneta they are worth the 5 stars.

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'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! 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.

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!

Ordered the motorised cellular blinds for two windows, loved them so much I ordered the rest of the house (19 blinds). I've had them for over 6 months and still love them, they fit perfect and look great. I have many different shaped windows including a corner window and five panel wide door, spent a lot of time talking to Veneta to make sure I got everything right. I have no cords and just press a button to open/close 10 blinds (2 upstairs) all at once. I've used rechargeable batteries and have some on standby if needed but the inconvenience of changing batteries is far outweighed by the clean look of these blinds.
