Every home has a room – or two – that needs that elusive ‘something’. Perhaps it’s a room that feels small, dark or simply uninviting. We often think about changing paint colours, floor coverings, furniture, or even taking more drastic measures. But the truth of the matter is that most rooms can be vastly improved with a smart choice of window furnishings.
Of all the window treatments available to homeowners, Plantation Shutters remain one of the most popular and enduring, with good reason. A classic look that’s sturdy and functional, Plantation Shutters are also at home indoors and out.
It’s in the nature of most homeowners to make an individual style statement through the decorator choices they make. And although curtains are one item that’s increasingly limited by ‘off the rack’ manufacturing, the team at Country is happily going against the flow, with custom-made lined curtains that continue to offer the luxury of choice for homeowners who really care.
There’s been an enormous resurgence in the popularity of sheer curtains in recent years and it really should come as no surprise – sheers are a beautiful choice with lots of practical advantages.
With a thirty-year history of making curtains and blinds in Mount Barker, Country Blinds have had plenty of time to find out which styles are evergreen, and year after year Roller Blinds come up as a firm favourite. So perhaps there’s irony in the fact that even after so long, not everybody knows precisely what a Roller Blinds is.
Pleated patio awnings? You might think that every blind and awning solution under the South Australian sun has been rolled out by now, but you’d be wrong, because Country Blinds are going a step further. In fact, they’re going several steps further, because one of the great strengths of the Outdoor Patio Awnings concept is its enormous span. Country Blinds can custom design and manufacture Pleated Awnings to a span size of 56 square metres, which some of us might consider ‘over the top’, but Jake Payne from Country Blinds maintains that this is just the point – more cover for big outdoor areas, right over the top.
Country Blinds, Curtains & Shutters have recently invested in upgrading their German-made vacuum CNC fabric cutting table in their Mount Barker factory, all in the name of a better result for customers.
As South Australia gets used to living with the threat of the COVID-19 virus, our state is slowly coming around to the importance of choosing local suppliers for everything from groceries to holidays. Incentives are being handed out, aimed at encouraging South Australian families to spend their money right here, appreciate their home state and help out the businesses that have been weathering the COVID storm throughout the past year.
2020 was a challenging year for families, businesses…and family businesses. As the COVID pandemic served up constant challenges, South Australians found themselves having to live and work differently, from staying at home to social distancing, with workplaces often set up in new ways so that production and customer service could continue wherever possible.
