Good

  • A high quality paint finish like a 2-pack polyurethane paint which gives a flawless appearance. Similar to high-end cabinetry paint.
  • Painted shutters should have minimum of 5 years warranty

    Your Shutters. Your Way.

    Monday, February 09, 2015

    At All Shutters & Blinds, we believe that a shutter solution should be as individual as its owner. That’s why we are committed to providing the most unique and innovative solutions to our client’s requests.

    When people think shutters, they often think the traditional 2 panel hinged configuration either done in a white paint or stained, as was so popular in the 80’s and 90’s. These days, both aluminium and timber plantation shutters are much more versatile and can be custom fabricated to suit the most challenging and unique situations.

    Bi-Folds, Fixed, Sliding and Bahama style shutters are all becoming increasingly popular as customers demand intensely unique solutions to a variety of spaces, not just their windows.


    Here’s some great use of our Weatherwell shutters on balconies as an alternative to railings. Available in a range of standard and custom colours, it’s a great way to allow for both light and privacy on your balcony as required.



    Bahama style shutters are a great way to block sunlight into room or area but still allow for an unobstructed view.


    Covering only half your window in shutters is an interesting way to still allow large amounts of sunlight into your room but block annoying glare that can occur, ideal for home offices.


    Fixed louvre shutters are an innovative method of blocking excess sunlight into large areas whilst still being aesthetically pleasing, as they often have far greater dimensional capacity than traditional shutters.


    Consider incorporating shutters into your new fence. Not only are our Weatherwell Elite Aluminium shutters sturdy enough to ensure security, but they are also built with lockable blades so you can ensure your privacy whilst adding a unique focal point to your fence line.

    Industrial Chic

    Thursday, March 05, 2015

    The industrial design trend that has long been reserved for lofts and the more masculine condo spaces has now well and truly penetrated mainstream urban design.

    With it’s focus on raw materials, clean lines and simple shapes, this look can easily be incorporated into any home without expensive refurbishments and can also be easily integrated within more feminine style areas to create a unique juxtaposition of designs.  We’ve put together a few simple ideas to help get you started!

    Texture

    Texture will predominantly come from the materials you use. Industrial chic relies heavily on raw materials such as steel, iron, reclaimed wood, glass, brick etc.  One of the easiest ways of adding texture is to contrast materials with pre-existing elements of your home. For example; if you have pre-existing brick walls, look into directly contrasting it with raw timbers and metals.

    Lighting

    Repurpose old lamps and industrial lights that you can find from thrift stores and antique shops to cover or add to your existing fixtures to add to the industrial of a room through simple changes.

    Colour

    Industrial chic relies heavily on neutral colour schemes to augment the natural and raw materials being used throughout. Avoid bold colours and stick to sandy beiges, ivory, black, greys and white.

    Furniture

    When considering furniture, one of the most effective methods to create a cohesive space without over-use of material, is to juxtapose wood with metal. Try using a repurposed wooden pallet as coffee table with metal end tables. Mixing and matching contrasting pieces will help bring the space together without risking the room becoming boring.

    Window Furnishings

    Whilst open window spaces are a clear favourite for many people decorating in an industrial chic trend, it is not always the most practical solution in high-sun areas or houses that lack natural privacy. Shutters are a great way to give you the best of both worlds.  Timber shutters that have a dark stain can give you both an ideal texture and colour combination, or alternatively, aluminium shutters can also be used; painted black or done in a dark-timber look-alike finish.
