Metrohood Pelmet Completes The Window

We respect and are able to treat customers as individuals, everyone has a different thing they are trying to achieve in their home. Do you require privacy, is heat an issue, some customers just want to dress the window, and have something nice to finish the room. A pelmet is a great way to achieve this. A pelmet is a decorative cover designed to cover the majority of the workings of the blind. In a roller blind it hides the brackets, control ends and tube, leaving just the blind hanging from under it. We have a range of pelmets available to customers, however one of our more popular pelmets is the metrohood pelmet due to its classy look. We usually wrap the same blind fabric around the pelmet so it all ties into together, allowing this family to #enjoytheperfectview

The Future Is Here… Verti Sheer

How do you dress a large sliding door? The trend is people are looking for window furnishings which soften the room. Curtains are usually a good way of achieving this, but if you don’t want curtains what is the answer? Verti Sheer.

A Verti Sheer is a cross between a vertical blind, and a sheer curtain. You can adjust how much light comes into the room, by twisting the control wand, and adjusting the blades, as you would with a vertical blind, with maximum open-ness of the vertical blinds, the sheer curtain, gives privacy, while softening and dressing the window.

These photos do not do this product justice. If you are looking to re-dress your windows, especially large windows, consider this product as you are effectively getting two blinds in one, and gives you a range of ways you can use your windows.

This customer will definitely now #enjoytheperfectview.

Awning creates atmosphere

Most of us had something damaged in the hail storm. This customer had a great outdoor entertaining area, but with damage to their folding arm awning, the mood and atmosphere was gone. Shaedz of Alice quickly fixed that with a new model. The beauty of a folding arm awning is, when you are out to party the awning goes out, when you are finished and head back inside, the awning comes in also. With this awning the party can now start and #enjoytheperfectview

Have Home, Want Walls

This customer came to us with the problem, they wanted to use their outdoor area, but was too cold during winter to use. We suggested using a Zipscreen, which gives great shading, but the type of fabric still, allows some light and air flow. Each Zipscreen has its own motor and at the click of a button, all the Zipscreens can be locked in at a height that allows the perfect view. I have been told, the Zipscreens are working perfectly, with the aid of an outdoor heater, has created a great outdoor living space that will be used all year round, with many a party to be held. #enjoytheperfectview

Winter is coming!

Yes, by now we can all feel that cool breeze on the gusts of wind. It is getting colder, but are you ready? We put insulation in our walls and rooves to keep the warmth in our homes. We spend money on fires, oil heaters and reverse cycle air-conditioners to keep us warm, over the next few months. But are you wasting money heating your home?

Short answer, probably yes. Have you ever touched the glass in your car on in your home? Notice how it gets really cold during winter, and really hot in summer?

The reason for this is you will lose a lot of the room temperature through the glass. The outside cold temperature will cool the glass, and then act like an air-conditioner radiating cold air into the room. Meaning you need to spend more money keep the fire , heater or air-con going.

With the right type of blinds and insulation on your windows, you can drastically save on your heating and electricity bills. It has been estimated using a Luxaflex Duette on your windows, can save you upto 43% on you electricity bills, as the blind is stylish, yet acts as an insulator stopping lots of that cold air, ever getting through the blind, meaning your room will stay warmer, at a reduced cost.

Luxaflex Duette’s available at Shaedz of Alice in Alice Springs #enjoytheperfectview

The fixed infill panel over the top of the spa, looks fantastic, with no stretch marks, nice and taut. To finish the area, a straight drop awning, for privacy and to cut out the western sun beeming in, helping these customers #enjoytheperfectview

Auto Guide Awnings Cool This Room Down

Have you ever touched the glass in your windows? At home or in the car? Notice they sometimes get really hot or really cold? Did you know that you lose most of your air-conditioning or heating through the glass in your windows and doors?

We insulate our walls and roofs, with insulation bats, and sometimes neglect our window and doors. That’s where you are losing your room temperature, through the glass.

Having an external awning like an auto guide awning, prevents a percentage of heat hitting the windows, therefore the room is not getting hot in summer. The auto guide awning is retractable, so if you are looking for that extra bit of warmth during winter, you can roll it up into the head box.

The difference between nothing on the wall, and the awning is amazing! #enjoytheperfectview

Linked Roller Blinds Great Result Over Sliding Door

This customer wanted a useful blind on her sliding door. Generally we do not install roller blinds on a sliding door, because people typically push it out of the way when they are trying to get out, instead of lifting the blind, ruining the blind with dirty hand marks and creases in the blind. However on this occasion, the linked blinds allow for the two blinds to work independently. One can be closed and one open as in the photo, or any combination of full open or closed. #enjoytheperfectview

Designer Fabrics To Spice Up Your Rooms

A couple who had been talking about about updating their blinds, recently popped into our showroom and wanted to make their blinds a feature in their rooms. The Kitchen blind with the ducks, gives a country homestead feel to this Kitchen, a place you want to cook!

The bedrooms, while appearing similiar have a metallic finish, one bedroom had a gold fleck finish while the other bedroom had a silvery finish. Quite stunning to look at.

The remaining blinds were plain coloured roller blinds, a simple finish, however the Metro Hood Pelmet over the top of the adjoining roller blinds look a million dollar. The Metro hood is wrapped in the same fabric as the blinds, tying the window furnishings altogether.

Was great to see how this customer wanted to #enjoytheperfectview
