Choosing blinds for your home can be daunting. The differences in style, colour and quality can seem never ending. It can leave you feeling confused and out of your depth. We can help with that!

Luxaflex Australia have teamed up with Three Birds Renovations to bring together a helpful list of things to consider when purchasing blinds for your home.

Light Control

Number one on the list is light control. Light control can be influenced by the style of blind you choose, as well as the type of fabric you choose. Light control is a particularly important aspect in bedrooms and media rooms, as it can directly affect your sleeping habits and tv viewing. The best blinds for light control are Duette Shades and Roller Blinds.


Privacy is important for bedrooms and bathrooms. It is also important for any room which may face a public street, or is close to your neighbors. Top picks for privacy are plantation shutters and Duette Shades.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is quite often over-looked when it comes to choosing window coverings, but it is an important consideration. Up to 30% of the homes unwanted heat loss in winter (and heat gain in summer), is via uncovered windows? The best choices for energy efficient window coverings is Duette Shades and Curtains.


There’s a lot to consider when choosing colour, texture and designs of blinds and shades. Lighter colours will make a room feel bigger and brighter while darker colours can make a room feel smaller and more intimate. Generally, people choose window coverings to match the wall or architrave or contrast it to make a design statement. There is a variety of colours and textures available in every window covering type. So this really is one consideration that is completely up to your personal preference.

Child Safety

Child safety is an important consideration in any window covering purchase (even if children don’t live in your home). There are strict laws in Australia surrounding window coverings in relation to child safety, and any blinds you purchase must comply. We ensure all our blinds comply with the relevant laws, and have options available that are cord-free for complete peace of mind. Motorisation is a great option for a child safe window covering.
