At Blinds With An Edge, we understand choosing blinds for your Geelong home is an investment. With our extensive experience supplying and installing blinds across Geelong and the surrounding areas, we’re happy to share a few tips to keep in mind to ensure you make the right choice.

Firstly, remember to think about both design and function.

Keep things simple in the kitchen, taking into account exposure to airborne grease and food particles.

For the bathroom, stick to lighter, moisture-resistant fabrics that can withstand humidity. Heavy fabrics retain moisture and can lead to mildew.

In bedrooms and living areas, choose a material and design that balances your need for privacy without compromising on light and views.

Our experienced blinds consultant is happy to make appointments before and after-hours, bringing a selection of products right to your door. We’ll ask about your needs, budget and preferences and provide advice and recommendations on what products will work best for you.

Other general considerations we encourage our clients to think about are:

  • budget – if you are buying blinds for your entire home, think about showcase blinds in common rooms and simpler options for other rooms
  • safety and design – cordless blinds are best if you have young children in your home
  • energy savings – blinds can help reduce air conditioning and heating costs
  • function – do you want to create an open, light space in your living area or are you looking to block out light in the bedroom?

It’s also important to stick to your preferred decorating style and tastes, and we are here to help you find the best overall match.
