Right Blinds For Your Home

Handy Tips In Selecting The Right Blinds For Your Home

Blinds have become a popular choice for Sunshine Coast homes, offering a stylish and practical solution for privacy, light control, and low maintenance. At Home point, we understand the importance of finding the perfect blinds to complement your interior and lifestyle. However, navigating the variety of styles and installation options can feel overwhelming. Fear not! We’ve created this guide to help you make informed decisions for your Sunshine Coast haven.

Finding the Perfect Match: Your Blind Style Guide

  • Function Meets Style: With a wide array of colours, materials, and textures available, blinds can enhance any room’s aesthetics. Our friendly team at Home point can help you choose the ideal style to complement your existing décor.
  • Roller Blinds: These practical blinds offer a sleek and modern look, perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Their protective coating is ideal for moisture-prone areas.
  • Venetian Blinds: Venetian blinds offer a classic and functional look. Available in wood, metal, or plastic, they provide excellent light control and are a popular choice for living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
  • Vertical Blinds: These blinds are ideal for sliding doors and large windows, offering a clean and contemporary aesthetic.

The Importance of Accurate Measurements

Before embarking on your blind selection journey, precise measurements are crucial. We recommend measuring both inside and outside the window recess to determine the optimal installation method for your chosen blinds.

  • Outside Mount: Measure the full width and height of the window casing, including the top and bottom edges. This method allows for more light entry and offers greater flexibility in sizing. Outside mounts are ideal for inward-opening doors.
  • Inside Mount: Measure the width of the window recess at the top, middle, and bottom. This method provides a clean, streamlined look as the blind’s control mechanism is hidden within the recess. Inside mounts work best when there’s sufficient depth to avoid interfering with window or door operation.

Making the Inside vs. Outside Mount Decision

The best installation method depends on your chosen blinds and your windows/doors.

  • Inside Mount Advantages: Offers a clean, streamlined look with the control mechanism hidden. Ideal when there’s sufficient depth in the recess.
  • Outside Mount Advantages: Allows for more light entry and greater flexibility in sizing. Perfect for inward-opening doors.

Considering Window/Door Operation

  • Internal Opening: For windows and doors that open inwards, inside mounts are generally recommended. However, a slight adjustment might be needed to ensure smooth operation.
  • External Opening: Doors that open outwards offer more flexibility. Inside recess mounts are typically recommended for these doors.
