Blinds finally!

We finally have some privacy with the installation of our new blinds from Franklyn. The waiting time was pretty ridiculous, but I guess being the lead up to Christmas that was to be expected.

They were due to be installed on the 8th of December, but unfortunately the poor installation guy was sent to the Gold Coast equivalent of our address rather than the Brisbane one. So about a week later he came and installed them.

Here they are:

We chose blockout roller blinds for the media room in charcoal. At some point we'll be painting the media room a darker colour, and the charcoal will fit in a lot better then.

In the spare bedrooms we've got translucent roller blinds in 'Cloud' colour. Eventually we'll put curtains over them as well. For now they just provide privacy, but no blockout.

We've also got Cloud roller blinds in the laundry, as well as the rest of the long windows in the living area.

We chose panel gliders for the patio door and activity room. I really love those.

Now all we need to work on is something for the bay window in our bedroom, and the cutout in the living room. We would really like shutters for both. But we are starting to think a bit more about curtains for the bay window. When we have some money again, we'll allow ourselves to think about that a bit more seriously.

  1. Love the blinds! We'll be getting similar treatments. Ideally we're also thinking of linen curtains to go with the blinds. I also can't quite go past a timber venetian...can't wait to have the house (and funds) to start thinking about it more seriously :)
