The city’s seemingly unstoppable growth of new apartments and rental properties, not to mention increasing focus on saving a dollar amid continuing uncertainty in the economic climate, are just some reasons why, if you’re looking for a strong market for low cost or cheap blinds Melbourne is a great place to start.
Sales of blinds, including venetian blinds, roller blinds, honeycell blinds and panel blinds continue to grow year on year in the Victorian capital, with cheap blinds increasingly sought after as property owners or landlords make the most of offerings from companies keen to offer real value for money; in other words, low cost blinds with a high level of quality and service.
Low overheads, particularly for online retailers, along with high quality offshore manufacture make the possibilities for offering cheap blinds with durable, reliable construction almost endless. Most e-tailers will offer a range of ready-made blinds including Roman Blinds, Roller Blinds, Aluminium Venetian Blinds, Sunscreen Roller blinds and even Dual Roller Blinds. Price sensitive and offering impressive colour ranges and fast delivery, these ready made blinds are typically offered with a cut-down service to ensure they fit the end-consumer’s size requirements.
Commentators from the retail sector note that Melbourne shoppers are particularly savvy when it comes to researching the cheap blinds available before they make their purchase.
“We’re finding that when it comes to cheap blinds Melbourne consumers are pretty cluey in terms of understanding the features and benefits of most window coverings,” said one. “There’s such a wealth of information available on the web, from home improvement sites to consumer reviews and real-time feedback from social media, that shoppers really know how to make the most of their budget. For example, they know that it might be wise to splurge on big ticket items such as plantation shutters and drapes in key areas of their homes, and to really economise by using cheap blinds in less frequented areas of the home.”
“Another thing we’ve noted is that shoppers are also pretty switched on when it comes to saving expenditure on energy. They’ll be aware that in colder rooms or rooms with south facing windows, it makes sense to invest in insulating products such as honeycell blinds, while in hotter rooms or those with north facing windows, reducing glare through the use of blockout fabric is a priority.”
“Given the wealth of colours and materials now available, they can usually find a range of different products that co-ordinate well together.”
With the dramatic fluctuations in Victoria’s climate, it’s no surprise that cheap blinds in Melbourne are offered in a huge range of fabric options; blockout completely eliminates light access and allows total privacy; translucent gives privacy but still allows filtered light. Meanwhile sunscreen fabrics maintain homeowners’ view and allow for partial filtration of light.
With most cheap blinds offered with optional remote controlled motorisation, it’s also easy to operate and control the blinds in your Melbourne home at the simple touch of a button!
