Our customers had an incredibly hot room and wanted to cool down. We put insulation into our ceilings and walls, but most of the temperature change happens through the glass in our windows and doors.
The best product on the market for interior blinds reducing the temperature loss and increase is a Luxaflex Duette.
The patented blind sold exclusively by Luxaflex dealers. Can reduce your energy bills by upto 43%, with the Architella fabric range.
Not only will this help combat the Alice Springs summer sun, the translucent fabric also still lets light in, while giving privacy.
With the newly designed head rail and ultraglide operation pull stick. This room, will be one of the coolest in Alice Springs.
Our customer had existing curtains, but wanted to update. This living area also had roller blinds as well. When doing window furnishings, it nice to keep the same fabric to maintain a theme or flow through the room and home, (not all fabrics are adaptable to different types of blinds). This fabric allowed the Dining Room Curtains and the Kitchen Roller Blind on one side to tie in very well, with the other side, a linked roller blind for the Sliding door on the other side of the room, and it came up a treat. #enjoytheperfectview
Sometimes a window screams for a product. This was one of those times. A customer with a beautiful outdoor view, took the right advice and installed motorised Luxaflex Duettes. You can see the video on our facebook page.
No more pulling cords. With a single press, all the blinds can be controlled by the remote control.
One of the advantages of the Luxaflex Duette is that there is very minimal gap on the left and right hand side, and they fit snuggly into the window reveal. The light filtering fabric, gives privacy you can’t see through it, but it still allows light into the room.
Light Filtering works great in Living Areas, Kitchen and Dining Rooms, where you want light in the room, but may need privacy at times.
It’s great to see this customer will now #enjoytheperfectview
Everyone has their own taste, and at Shaedz of Alice we ask the right questions to get the best finish. In this case, curtains was the Perfect Choice. Each room and each person has a curtain that reflects the room, and makes the room pop, but not overwhelming.
Our range of curtain fabric has something that suit most people’s taste.
It goes to show you get what you pay for with the right advice, you get a great result, with customer service to back up our products.
Our customer has a second story unit, and wanted some privacy, and to reduce that western sun coming into his outdoor area.
We fitted two Fixed Infill Panels (Rope Tracks) to the Western Side, which are a permanent feature, we also fitted three spring operated Zipscreens which look great, stylish and could be raised to any height for ultimate pleasure enjoying that outdoor area.
We know he will now #enjoytheperfectview
A customer recently wanted to update her blinds, however the problem was that the windows were not square. Most blinds require to be level and hung horizontally, to be operated correctly.
With the right advice and guidance from Shaedz of Alice. We found a solution that was modern, and looked great. Plantation Shutters for that luxury feeling but also can work to a variety of shapes.
Time for an interior update. The fabric is a stylish Translucent light filtering fabric that allows the light into the room, that but still gives privacy when the blind is closed. Perfect for living areas.
We have installed some classy Luxaflex Qmotion Motorised Blinds over the larger windows, that do not require an electrician for installation. No Wires. Standard usage, should see the batteries changed approximately once every 1-2 years.
We used a combination of manual and motorised blinds through the home, and our clients could not be happier!
The fabric really is … stunning #enjoytheperfectview
Our customers wanted to increase the security at their home. A roller shutter is a great deterrent. The coloured aluminium finish, gives a classy upgrade and look to your home, making it more difficult to get access via the windows and Sliding Doors.
NOISE. Noisy neighbours? Dogs, Power Tools, Traffic? The dense foam in the slats soak a lot of noise coming into the room, making it ideal for bedrooms or kids rooms, making it nice and quiet.
LIGHT BLOCKOUT. Roller Shutters are great for shift workers giving 99.9% light blockout in bedrooms, or your living room, when watching that new movie on the TV.
INSULATE your rooms with Roller Shutters. We put insulation in our rooves and walls, but we don’t look after our windows, and glass. Most of the heat and cold transfer happens through glass in our homes. The dense foam inside the Roller Shutter slats soak the temperate keeping your house just the way you want it.
RETRACTABLE. They don’t obscure your view, when you want to look out, unlike security mesh.

Our customers have lived in their home for the past 15+ years and felt it was time to update their home.

The blinds a subtle white with a brown texture through them was just what the room was looking for.
Sheer Roller Blinds in the bedrooms for daytime privacy and Blockout Textured Roller Blinds with Linear Valance Pelmets to hide the workings of the blinds, now allow these happy customers to #enjoytheperfectview
Our customer had recently purchased their first home, which had three existing roller shutters. They were concerned about someone breaking in through the rear windows and doors. We were able to closely match the colours and stripes. Giving our customer the peace of mind that there house would be safe.
Roller Shutters are ideal for the exterior of your windows. When closed they provide 99.9% blockout of visible light, and due to the foam filled aluminium slats they are a great “noise insulator” and “insulate” your windows from the weather elements such as heat and cold, keeping the temperature inside the home instead of using your heating and cooling systems, furthermore they are a security deterrent.

How do you get shade on your windows, while still being able to have access to the window? A unique product Pivot Arm awning, still using our quality fabrics. As the name suggests it operates using a Pivot Arm, as the arm extends or retracts dictates what the awning, will look like. This customer wanted to have access to her windows, while the awning was still up. So we needed space to access the windows. By using the Pivot Arm Awning, it allows the window to continue to be shaded, while having room to get in under, clean the windows and when you are finished you can continue winding the awning down by the crank handle, to have a more traditional awning, shading the window enabling them to #enjoytheperfectview
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
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.
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

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

We all know that place, we would like to have a door, but cant fit one. We recently assisted a client with a similar situation. Wanting to divide those rooms, a lotus folding door is a stylish way, to find that separation and privacy, you want and deserve. #enjoytheperfectview
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
