So here’s our complete guide to buy Blinds and Shutters:
1. Fabrics and Opacity:
Opacity is an important consideration when choosing window treatments. Blinds are available in three main types of fabrics, ranging from sun-screening to black-out. Sun-screening fabrics are the most transparent and enable you to maintain your view outside while controlling the amount of heat and light entering the room.
Sheer, translucent fabrics are more opaque than sun-screening fabrics and provide increased privacy while still allowing some light to filter through. Black-out fabrics give you the highest level of privacy and room darkening, making them ideal for bedrooms or home theatres.
When selecting a fabric, consider your needs and preferences in order to choose the best option for your space.
2. Explore The Range of Colours:
Whether you’re looking for a subtle touch or a bold statement, Mike’s Carpet Discounters has the perfect colour blinds and shutters to suit your needs. Our wide range of colours are sure to match any existing interior décor and colour scheme.
For a seamless transition, choose a colour that will blend in with your wall paint. Or, go for a bolder look with strong block colours. Remember that darker colours will make a room appear warmer and cosier, while lighter colours will make it appear more open and airy.
Ultimately, it all comes down to the overall look you’re trying to achieve. With so many options to choose from, we’re confident you’ll find the perfect shade at Mike’s Carpet Discounters.
The feel of a fabric is just as important as the look. We all want our spaces to look great, but you also want them to feel great. That’s where texture comes in. A fabric with a lot of texture can add an element of interest to a room and can also be a great way to add a little bit of extra warmth.
We have a range of textures and consistencies available that can help you create the perfect space for relaxing or entertaining.

5. Measurement and Working:
All blinds systems are designed to be practical and easy to use, giving you complete control over the positioning of your blinds. Some of the most popular blind operating systems include chain drive, spring assisted and fully motorised options.
Each type of system has its own benefits and drawbacks, so choosing the one that best suits your needs is essential. For example, chain drive blinds are known for their durability and smooth operation, making them an excellent choice for high-traffic areas.
On the other hand, spring-assisted blinds are a good choice for rooms where you need quick and easy access to the blinds. Fully motorised blinds are ideal for large windows or hard-to-reach areas. Whichever type of system you choose, you can be sure that your blinds will operate smoothly and reliably.

6. Safety Tips To Follow:
At Mike’s Carpet Discounters, we offer high-quality blinds and shutters that meet all Australian safety regulations. However, we also understand that accidents can happen, so we always advise our customers to take extra precautions if they have young children at home.
The pull cords and chains on blinds can pose a severe risk of injury or strangulation if children are within reach.
To minimise this risk, it is important to keep all cords and chains out of their reach and to position beds, cots, highchairs and playpens away from any windows that are fitted with blinds.
Additionally, it is always best to supervise children in a room with blind chains or cords. By taking these simple precautions, you can help to keep your children safe from harm.
