Why buy custom made Blinds

Custom made blinds or off the shelf?

Internal blinds are the most popular window furnishing in Australia and for good reason. 

Blinds give privacy and help with energy costs, keeping the heat/light out in summer and warmth inside in winter. And they look great, dressing up a room with many colour and texture fabrics to choose from. 

You can buy custom-made blinds from a local manufacturer like Premier Shades or off the shelf blinds from your hardware or online DIY store.


So why buy custom-made? 

  • Unlike hardware or online stores, our professional consultants visit and give you options and solutions specific to your home and requirements.
  • Your hardware or online DIY store requires you to (i) measure, (ii) remove old blinds and (iii) install your blinds. Cheaper yes, but you get what you pay for. And do you want to be climbing ladders with a tape-measure or screwdriver in your hand?
  • Your windows are custom-made. They come in different sizes and shapes, often not square. Measuring for blinds is hard! Leave that to professionals like us.
  • Not all blinds are the same. Off the shelf and DIY blinds are cheap because they compromise on the quality of aluminium top tube, bottom bar, chain, motor and fabric that are all important for a long service life and good aesthetic. Cheap blinds don’t last.
  • We only employ trained and professional consultants and installers. And we have licensed carpentry and metal fabricator tradespeople on staff.
  • Premier Shades has been making and selling blinds on the Central Coast for over 30 years, longer than your hardware or online stores. And as a local business we support local manufacturing and the community through a local hospital charity.
  • Custom-made blinds are not as expensive as you might think. A quote and measure is free.
  • We'll remove and recycle your old blinds.
  • We canhelp you navigate many blind options and questions: roller blinds, verticals, romans, venetians, honeycomb blinds. We also make dual (day/night) blinds, and can option silent bottom bars to stop them banging in the breeze. And can help with tricky fabrics like for light filtering, sunscreen and different applications like media or bathrooms.
  • Custom-made blinds, from quote to install, are fast and can take as little as 7 days
  • We're automation experts and we can motorise your blinds - the first step towards a truly smart home.

And we can help you with tricky door and window questions like: what’s the best solution for blinds over sliding doors?

When you choose custom-made blinds from Premier Shades, you get personalised service, a free measure and quote and removal of your old blinds.
