The construction of your dwelling and the local climate should be taken into consideration when making a window covering purchase. Your décor, colour scheme and personal preference will also ultimately help you make the right decision.
Blinds suited to Brisbane and Queensland homes
Queensland has a significant variation in climate from monsoonal wet in the north to low minimum temperatures in the lower granite belt. Most of Queensland and Brisbane experience a winter of warm temperatures and minimum rainfall and a summer of humid heat and heavy rainfalls. Queenslanders have become a custom to the wet seasons bringing the rain and therefore the floods. To combat this amongst other climatic conditions the Queenslander architecture style of home has been developed since way back in the late 1800’s and is still going strong today due to its sustainable nature of construction. In recent years the most popular home to be built in Queensland is of brick construction; the Australian brick veneer with Gyprock interior walls and timber window frames and architraves.
Blending with your timber interior you could choose a Timber venetian or Fauxwood venetian. For warmer climates the venetian blind offers exceptional versatility in regards to controlling light, heat and air flow. You will also be surprised at the level of insulation provided by the natural characteristics of a real wood venetian blind. If you would like to soften the room you might want to try a Roman or Honeycomb fabric blind. Fabric blinds are also great if you have timber floors, the softer fabric will help with noise and offer a softer touch to the room. Your options for a modern brick veneer home are unlimited as our entire range will suit the neat look of a modern Queensland or Brisbane suburban home. Again Timber venetians provide versatility for the hotter months, while Honeycomb and other fabric blinds add a level of warmth and sophistication to your home.
