    Federation Collection

    Elegant simplicity is the theme of this brand new Charles Parsons drapery range.  This collection complements our existing ranges while taking a traditional style into the 21st century.

    Traditional style fabrics are a constant in interiors as you can re-invent the patterns with a modern twist.  The choice of colours in this range only enhances the fluidity of its use and with stripes, damasks and diamond jacquards. This range competes with any high end fabric compilation in the same theme overseas and locally.

    The uses with this range are endless, from curtains draping gracefully with co-ordinating pelmets to create the look synonymous with 19th century French palaces to a modern home that requires a touch of class.  This range can be used for cushionsbedding and light upholstery and with the extensive coordinating styles and colours offered you can create a look that is uniquely yours.

    Fabric is an essential part of choosing your curtains. Each fabric has its own unique characteristics and performance levels, so its important to choose the best fabric for your lifestyle. If your interested to find out more on our drapery fabric range then Click Here

    We are thrilled that our strong partnership with Ricky Richards has helped to exceed their target of $100,000 by raising $102,668 in the first year of their partnership with the Melanoma Institute Australia.

    At DCB we range Ricky Richards selection of awning fabrics. This includes diverse fabric solutions for coverings such as folding arm awnings, side channel awnings and straight drop blinds. Ricky Richards collection of colours, designs and textile options help our customers create aesthetically pleasing window coverings that will last for years to come.

    If you’re looking for a window treatment that offers sun control and the ability to invite cool breezes in, while also allowing uninterrupted outside views, the outlook collection of fabrics from Ricky Richards is the ideal solution. 

    Ricky Richards has recently revamped the collection, which now features over 50 colour and design options, giving you an almost limitless choice of fabrics that “help let the outside in”. 

    New additions to the range are Mode Privacy and Outlook Fusion. 

    Mode Privacy has a tighter basket weave construction than the traditional Mode fabrics and with a one per cent openness factor is ideal if you want to retain your view and air flow but maximise privacy. 

    Outlook Fusion is a combination of a basket and twill weave that creates a “self-stripe” appearance, perfect if you want a softer looking stripe.

    Outlook fabrics work well in a number of applications, including automated awnings, patio blinds, side channel blinds and straight drop blinds.

    Dollar Curtains & Blinds have added the final touches to complete this new home's contemporary and cutting edge design.

    The window coverings in this home situated in Mt Martha, Victoria, have been designed and installed by Dollar Curtains & Blinds Mornington team. Sheer curtains, suncreen roller blinds, blockout roller blinds and blockout curtains were all chosen and co-ordinated to finish off the interior design of this home on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.   

    Sheer Curtains and Sunscreen Roller Blinds Ideas for Living Room

    The combination of sheer curtains and sunscreen roller blinds is key to the success of this home’s interior design. In the living spaces, the sheers add softness and bring a sense of relaxation to the room whilst the sunscreen roller blinds aid the insulation and privacy. Both ensure the clients keep their beautiful water views whilst maintaining their privacy.

    From the entry of the home sheer curtains frame the antique doors and the pencil pleat curtain heading gathers the fabric from the ceiling with a soft informal drape.

    For the sunscreen roller blinds, the dcb designers Tempo View fabric was an essential choice. Tempo View offers UV protection, glare reduction and heat control, insulating the rooms to keep them cool in summer and warm in winter. In addition to its insulation qualities, the fabric also protects the home’s floorboards, carpet and furniture from fading.

    The indirect and diffused light created through layered window treatments is essential in creating a relaxed mood. Through the kitchen and dining space, the sheer curtains add movement and allow for natural light and soft breezes into the room, creating a resort ambiance style.

    Adding texture really matters in the success of a home’s window treatments and it’s applied here in the form of the finely woven sheer curtain fabrics and sunscreen blind fabrics.

    In the dining area, heavy lined drapes were chosen for privacy from the side of the house to ensure complete block out and added insulation.

    Dollar Curtains & Blinds Wavefold curtain heading was selected throughout the home in the living and dining rooms and master suite to create a consistent look across all rooms.

    The Wavefold creates a sleek and contemporary effect when used with both sheer and solid fabrics, allowing the curtains to drape with a continuous wave, which is smooth, simple and elegant.

    As well as complementing the aesthetics of this modern home, the Wavefold is also a highly practical choice. The style is easy to operate and creates a neat stack back, which allows the clients to maximize the natural light entering through the windows and leaving them with minimal obstruction to their views.

    Dollar Curtains & Blinds have fulfilled the brief of delivering a master suite that is the client’s private sanctuary with the tonal hues and soft drape of the St Tropez sheer fabric.


    Sheer Curtains and Blockout Roller Blinds Ideas for Bedroom


    The combination of sheer curtains and blockout roller blinds provides the functionality for complete control over the room’s natural light. Opting for a blockout fabric in a roller blind provides the room darkening, privacy and insulation required for the bedroom. Together these components have created a haven the clients love to enter at the end of the day and wake up to each morning.


    Dollar Curtains & Blinds can design a similar look in your home, our showrooms cover the whole of Melbourne and Victoria as well as areas surrounding Fyshwick and Mitchell in Canberra, Griffith, Batemans Bay, Merimbula and Wagga Wagga in New South Wales and Mt Gambier in South Australia.

  • Feeling A Little Bit Chilly Lately?

    Uncovered windows are responsible for up to 40% of the heat loss from your home in winter! Sustainability Victoria has released new information on how important window protection is, particularly custom made curtains and pelmets, to stop heat loss through windows in winter.

    Windows play a big role in retaining heat in your home. A single pane of glass can lose almost 10 times as much heat as the same area of insulated wall.

    Reduce heat loss through windows and save money on your winter heating bills. Appropriate window protection creates an insulating layer of still air on the inside of the glass. This can be achieved by the addition of thick curtains and a pelmet.

    The diagram below shows the difference between a poorly-fitted and a well-fitted curtain and the effect this has on heat loss. The poorly-fitted curtain allows heat loss to occur, while the well fitted curtain combined with a pelmet significantly reduces heat loss.


    Sustainability Victoria Tips
    • Use closely woven, close-fitting curtains or blinds
    • Ensure there’s a snug fit on both sides of the window and at the top of the curtain to stop warm air from moving down behind the curtain and cooling
    • Install boxed pelmets or solid barriers above the curtain rail, or position the curtain within the window space
    • Use curtain tracks that provide a return of curtain to the wall to create a seal
    • Close curtains or blinds when you have the heating on, especially at night – by leaving curtains or blinds open, you're wasting money and energy
    How can dcb help you?
    • We have Australia's largest range of high quality fabrics ideal for maximising your homes insulation

    • Our boxed pelmets create solid barriers above the curtain or blind to trap air at the top of the window

    • We offer the most innovative and easy to use operating systems in the marketplace making it easier for you to open and close your curtains and blinds
