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.

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. Very happy with Veneta service and product.
Great product & service

We ordered a number of honeycomb blinds from Veneta Blinds. The online purchase process was easy to use and responsive. The follow up service during the production and delivery processes were excellent. The product that arrived (ahead of time) was perfect for our needs and exactly what we had expected. Measurements were spot-on and the product very easy to install.
It looks great, works well and fits well

Using the website was easy and instructions for measuring and installing were very clear. They sent out samples so I could check the colours and the blind arrived when they said it would. We're very happy with the blind itself. We got a honeycomb blind - it looks great, works well and fits well.
Would recommend anyone to purchase blinds from Veneta

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.

I was looking for honeycomb blinds for my renovated home. Veneta Blinds was not only great value but had excellent customer service throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend Veneta Blinds for a great looking product backed up by quality. Couldn't be happier.
The quality of the blinds is excellent
5 out of 5 – reviewed on Oct 01, 2015
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.
Absolutely love my Honeycomb blinds!!

Good quality, range and style

As with the other seven honeycomb blinds we had previously purchased from Veneta, we have been impressed with the quality of both the blinds and the service. The frequent emails and tracking number informing us of the progress of the order have been very helpful.
Installation is fast and simple and they look amazing! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for good quality, range and style.
Excellent customer service in EVERY respect

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 !!!
Very happy with the goods received

Quality was good and so was the price

Just purchased a Honeycomb blind to replace an old vertical in our ensuite. Simply measure the window, choose a style and colour and thats it. Turned up quickly and was notified along the way as it was being made, shipped etc. Quality was good and so was the price. Happy to recommend.
Look fantastic and keep the room much warmer

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. Found them on Veneta Blinds website and followed the easy directions to order them. They arrived in Adelaide in just over a week and were easy to install. Look fantastic and keep the room much warmer.
Great customer service, free samples in the post and easy to fit DIY

Really amazed with the quality of the honeycomb blinds we ordered. Manufactured and delivered in 6 days, when blind fitters were quoting a minimum of 8 weeks!
Great customer service, free samples in the post and easy to fit DIY. We couldn't be happy.
Exactly as described and easy to install
5 out of 5
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.
