How long do your Geelong shutters and blinds last?
If they are taken care of, shutters and blinds can last for years. Often the size and frequency of being raised and lowered will have an effect on parts such as the cords but these things are easily replaced to renew your blind. Fabric Blinds generally carry between a 2 and 5 year warranty as with any product though, with careful use and care, blinds and shutters will last many years.
Why are there different blades sizes and shapes in plantation shutters and timber venetian blinds?
A traditional plantation shutter blade has a flat profile with a rounded edge yet now the more popular blade would be the Elliptical or Aerofoil blade which is thicker in the middle and narrower at the edge. The degree of privacy and light block is not greatly affected by the size of the blade. The openness and outlook is more controlled by the blade width. Some think a smaller blade gives a more traditional look, but the decision is up to you. Our sales team carries samples of the different blade options and finishes to help with your decision.
