It’s no secret that I have a love affair with dollar curtains + blinds.. You know it, I know it, they know it.. But I really didn’t think they could make me happier than I already am.. Spoiler: They did….
My back room and sitting room were both lacking window covers that kept the style of the rest of the house so I spoke to dc+b about what would work best in those two spaces. The back room aka the rumpus room, is where we watch movies and fall asleep on the couch, it’s also the room that gets the direct sun for the first half of the day. So I wanted something that blocked out the light but also kept a sophisticated and soft look.
What we chose:
dollar curtains + blinds Automate battery-powered motors are a perfect option for existing households wishing to upgrade to motorised window coverings. No hard wiring via an Electrican is needed as there is a battery pack which accompanies the blinds that can be charged as required.
FABRIC: Soft Roman blind in Mosman colour pearl. I wanted to give the illusion that the romans just flowed with the wall so I choose this beautiful fabric that was very similar to my wall colours but had the gorgeous texture through it.
Also, a MAJOR part of these blinds is that they are AUTOMATED… I don’t do anything but press a button.
Automation: Do you know-how good it feels to open and close blinds with a remote…. feels sooo good.
So to finalise… Roman blinds are a vibe and they were the perfect option for these rooms in my home.
SHUTTERS OHHHH YES.
When we first built our house and were deciding on window coverings for the bathroom and toilet, I do not know what we were thinking when we chose roller blinds… Not only did they look out of place (my opinion obviously) but as soon as we had a couple of kids we NEVER had them down because they would be covered in water after every bath! So, I changed them.. and what a different it made.
Dollar Curtains + Blinds specially designed PVC shutters are resistant to moisture + humidity, making them ideal for wet areas such as bathrooms, laundries + kitchens. They are also made with an aluminium core which strengthens the blades + panels, adding extra support for a more durable longer lasting shutter.
The Shutters in the bathroom and toilet changed the whole vibe and made a huge difference to light as well. Allowing me to tilt the shutters when I want a little light and when they are fully shut they block all light and sun! and being water resistant the kids can splash as much as they want!
