The Undeniable Benefits of Installing Aluminium Blinds

galaxyblinds Aluminum Blinds

Whether you’re renovating your property or upgrading a new home, finding the right type of blinds for your lifestyle is essential. Available in an array of colours and tones, aluminium blinds also convey lots of other benefits. From energy savings to extra privacy, there are plenty of reasons to choose them.

Their reflective nature means you’ll save money on your energy bill

When you opt for reflective aluminium blinds, you’ll save money on your energy bill. The reflective coating applies to heat gain and loss, which means they’ll benefit your HVAC system throughout the year.

One way to bolster the energy-saving benefits is to choose thick horizontal blinds. When you adjust them during the daytime, you can let natural flight flood in, reducing the need to switch on the lights.

They resist moisture, making them ideal for bathrooms and kitchens

From moisture through to dust, aluminium can resist all kinds of irritants. If you want to install Venetian blinds in your bathroom or kitchen, aluminium is perfect. Unlike wood, it’s not susceptible to the corrosive nature of water, allowing your blinds to last for longer.

Similarly, if you live by the coast, your blinds won’t fold under the pressure of salt and water. As for those of you who live in urban areas, you’ll find that aluminium doesn’t cave under the pressure of carbon monoxide, which is particularly prevalent in areas where there is lots of traffic.

Aluminium blinds suit those who want high-tech privacy

Finally, if you want to maintain your privacy with ease, an aluminium blind installation allows you to achieve exactly that. From automated systems to those that respond to remote controls, you’ll find that aluminium is the material that responds the best to electronically-controlled shutters. As an additional benefit, when you choose thicker vanes, you don’t have to worry about bends and kinks that could lead to visible gaps others could peer through.

How to Choose Blinds for Your Home

Home Blinds


You know you need blinds to turn down the sun’s brightness certain times during the day. But how do you choose? Here are some tips to guide you through the process:

How Much Light Do You Want to Let In?

Shades and window blinds come in a variety of options when it comes to light control. In your bedroom, you may want a blockout window treatment that blocks most of the sun’s rays. If you have an irregular work schedule or if your room’s windows face the early morning sun, these blinds will probably be the best choice for you.

On the other hand, if you only want to filter out some of the light, such as in your kitchen or dining room, light filtering blinds may be a better option. In these rooms, you want sunlight to illuminate the space so you can see better, but you don’t want the sun’s full glare staring you in the face over breakfast.

Slats or No Slats?

When you have blinds with slats, you can choose the level of light you want in the room. You can even adjust their tilt to see what’s happening outside, yet still, control the level of light in the room.

Venetian or Sliding Panel Blinds, both with slats, work well to adjust the light level. Sliding Panel Blinds are especially appropriate when you have sliding doors that you need to access at will. All you need to do is to slide them back, and you can step outside.

If, however, you want energy-efficient blinds, the trim, tailored look of Roller blinds or elegant Roman blinds, you won’t be able to adjust the level of sight or light with slats. You’ll need to pull the blinds up at least part way to see out of the window.

Do You Have Custom-Sized Windows?

For a custom window, you need a window covering made to fit its dimensions precisely. At Galaxy Blinds, we can create window treatments for windows of all sizes and shapes.
