    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.

    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 curtains and blinds are 100% custom made to your specific window dimensions so they fit snug on your windows (We don't do ANY pre-fabrication or shortcuts!)
    • Exceptional Australian Made quality guarantees that your curtains and blinds will be fitted in the best position to maximise insulation and stop warm air from moving behind the window coverings
    • Our boxed pelmets create solid barriers above the curtain or blind to trap air at the top of the window
    • Our curtains provide a return to the wall further increasing insulation and stopping warm air from escaping out through your windows
    • 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

    Infused with contemporary style, the combination of plantation shutters and sheer curtains creates the ultimate refined look for this modern canberra home.

    Given the abundance of sunlight flooding the home, plantation shutters were the ideal choice. The real beauty of shutters is you can tilt the easy to use louvers to any position, giving you complete light control.

    With the windows facing the east, protecting the inside of the home from the harsh sunlight was also a must, so dcb designs Basswood shutters were chosen. Constructed from premium Basswood timber, the shutters offer high insulation properties, and are also tested to endure the harshest temperatures of the Australian sun.

    Ensuring light control, the DCB designs shutters were also installed for their UV protection. In the bay window the shutters louvres are easily adjustable to re-direct the light away from the upholstered seating to prevent fading to the furniture.

    Dollar Curtains & Blinds has also installed the shutters with no corner gaps, allowing for complete protection from UV damage. The shutters’ small projection also proves ideal in this space, and in the hallways, ensuring the window coverings intrude as little as possible into the interiors.

    Plantation shutters are highly functional when used on doorways. Shutters are fixed to the doors, allowing no interference when the doors are opened and closed.

    Dollar Curtains & Blinds has also designed the shutters with cutouts, allowing for the shutters to be installed alongside the handles on the French doors.

    Introducing tactile sheer curtains in the main living areas softens the architectural look of the shutters, creating calming and inviting spaces. The curtains were designed with a triple pinch pleat heading, creating a classic, timeless look, and the décor rods tie in with the door handles and light fittings, ensuring a consistent style throughout the home.

     

    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.

  • What Trends Are In For This Year’s Autumn And Winter Seasons?

    HERE ARE SOME TIPS FROM OUR FABRIC WHOLESALER CHARLES PARSONS ON WHAT TRENDS ARE IN THIS AUTUMN & WINTER

    Like fashion, interior design is constantly on the move. Whether it's the latest modern textile patterns or a minimalist look, there's something new around the corner with each change of the season.

     


    As there is a period that is colder than most, being autumn and winter, there needs to be a more drastic change from the warmer summer and spring seasons. Here are a few trends that have been running rampant as the year grows colder, and how you can find the right upholstery fabrics and drapery to decorate your home.

    You may have noticed that florals have been making a big comeback in recent years. Elle Decor explains that florals, particularly of the 'granny' design, are 'in' this winter, reminiscent of the spring seasons gone by.

    It's not just a pattern found in vintage stores, but rather, a design that is being adopted in modern aesthetics. You'll find floral patterns in wide abundance in accessories like Dr Martens shoes and Cate Kidson bags. Floral may bring connotations of vintage, but it's only being embraced more than ever by modern society.

    How can you display this trend in your home? Winter weather isn't all too kind on your rose bushes outside, so it requires some artful home decor. Pressed flowers in photo frames make beautiful homemade displays, especially if you turn it into a collage for a bigger piece of art to display.

    For furnishings, Charles Parsons Interiors offers a wide range of floral upholstery fabrics for your perusal. They feature all sorts of colour palettes, so hopefully you'll be able to find one to match to your decor.

    If you're hesitant about adopting such a bright pattern for a settee or couch, sometimes subtle is best. A cushion tucked into the corner of an armchair or a decorative ottoman can easily sneak a floral pattern in without overwhelming the design of the room.


    The Poppy range features a beautiful, soft floral design that can be used boldly in your home.

    Go marbles for marble

    Marble countertops are one of the most popular features of a kitchen, but lately, new trends have seen this design branching out into plenty of other aspects of the home. Tabletops, clock faces and candle holders – all of these are great ways to show off a marble accent, which Elle Decor explains adds small touches of luxury throughout your home.

    While you don't want to adopt the marble pattern in all your upholstery fabrics and furnishings, you can find textiles that reflect the soft hues and edgy aesthetics of the marble design.

    Choose a plush, plain textile such as one from the Savoy collection – it instantly warms the room while still complementing any statement marble pieces you may have around. Complete the decor with sheer drapery to let natural light in, and you're set for this winter.



    Subtle textures

    The trend of rustic decor items hasn't died down yet – think matte metal items, rose gold accents and industrial-chic furnishings. Of course, too many of these items can make a room seem cold, uninviting and too harsh, so to soften it up, adopt the use of subtle textures.

    There are some that'll add to the vintage vibe, such as creamy threads. Any of the Borsetti range help to tie cold metals and rustic decor together nicely, especially the neutral shades.

    Implement them in the seats of chairs at the dining table, and use any leftover scrap fabric to create a runner for the centre of your marble-designed table top.

    It just goes to show that you don't necessarily have to incorporate furs and fluffy rugs for a home in the winter. You'll also find that these trends can be easily up-styled to suit summer once the warmer seasons roll around. For now, pop on the heater and enjoy your stylish home with a hot mug of cocoa.
