When it comes to choosing blinds for your home, you may want
to consider timber blinds as an alternative. Timber blinds, or shutters as they
are sometimes known have a good number of advantages making them both a
beautiful and useful addition to your home.
Protection from the Elements
Timber blinds Brisbane
provide excellent protection from the sun and should be considered for windows
that are fully exposed to the harsh sun. The blinds do still allow air to
circulate and allow some light in whilst keeping out harmful UV radiation and
so keep the rooms cool.
These blinds look good. They can be put up inside the house and will lend the
room an airy Caribbean feel. They can also, if properly treated, be put outside
windows and, if properly cared for, will last for years. Maintenance is simple –
you wipe the blinds down once in a while to get rid of dust. If the blinds
start looking tatty, you simply revarnish or repaint them.
Decorating them is Easy
It is simple to decorate the timber blinds – you can keep them natural and play
on the natural grain of the wood or you can paint them in whatever colour you
want to. Should you wish to, you can also stain the blinds. This makes them
very versatile. You just need to make sure that the wood is properly sealed
before applying the paint or varnish. You may need to apply more than one coat
of stain or varnish. Allow each coat to dry properly and sand lightly before
applying the next coat. You may need to apply a coat of all-weather varnish
over the top of the last coat, especially if the blinds are going to be outside
There is no way you are going to suffer anyone being able to simply peer into
your windows from the street with timber blinds. They are completely opaque and
so they protect you from snooping eyes. If you want to take full advantage of
the view outdoors, you simply fold back the blinds.
Easy to Clean
When it comes to cleaning, shutters
Brisbane are simple to keep clean. Wooden blinds are less likely to
pick up permanent stains than fabric blinds are. Any fine layer of grime can
simply be wiped away – with fabric blinds, wiping away dirt may just drive it
deeper into the fabric. On the whole, timber blinds are a great and practical
design option for those looking to decorate their homes.
