Can blinds or shutters save money on energy bills?

Yes. Many of our products have temperature related benefits, but nearly all shutters and blinds provide this benefit by default by keeping excess heat out in summer, and keep warmth in during the winter.

Do you do repairs?

No, unless they are products covered by Belle Blinds and Shutters manufacturers or our installations.

Do shutters provide complete blackout from sunlight?

No. In truth, nothing can as light will always find a way in without sealing a room completely. However, some shutters will provide more blackout than others and so can go a long way towards achieving this function. Give us a call to find out more.

Do I need to clean my shutters and blinds?

Regular light dusting with a microfibre cloth or duster will generally suffice. You can also use the brush attachment for vacuum cleaners to remove dust and dirt. For the corners you can use an old toothbrush where dirt is harder to remove. As ever, dry dusting regularly will negate the need for wet cleaning which requires more work. Avoid using water on wooden shutters as this can warp and or tarnish the wood.

What’s the difference between plantation shutters and colonial shutters?

Essentially nothing, both these terms are generally used to describe the same products. Historically there is a slight difference between the two with traditional and older colonial shutters having shorter and narrower louvres unlike the wider elliptical louvres of the plantation style. Nowadays you have the choice of both manufacturing techniques.

How long does it take to install blinds and shutters?

Normally our expert team can complete an install on an average size house in one working day. We will give a more accurate estimation after your order giving you plenty of notice.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

Generally, our factory direct custom products will take 2 to 3 weeks to deliver Australia wide. If there is any change to this we will let you know.

Do all your products have a warranty or guarantee?

Yes, all our products are covered by a XX year warranty and all our installations are fully guaranteed and insured.
