Plantation shutters

Practical and elegant, plantation shutters can be used in almost every room. Our range is made to measure, and can be motorised and manufactured from durable materials, such as timber or aluminium Norman Australia is our preferred partner for timber plantation shutters, with nearly 50 years of experience manufacturing custom-made shutters and other window furnishings. With a diverse selection of styles, colours, textures and designs, Norman’s timber shutters come with a five-year warranty as well as a once off no questions asked guarantee for a damaged shutter.

At SOM Blinds, our priority is quality products for our clients, so we prefer not to supply PVC or plastic shutters as they can become warped and distorted during high temperatures, affecting both functionality and aesthetics. 

External Venetian blinds

For a modern and attractive heat and light control solution, consider external Venetian blinds. They’re easy to operate and very flexible–the slats can be tilted in multiple directions to adjust the level of heat, light or privacy you want throughout the day. Their sleek and elegant design makes them architecturally attractive and a versatile choice to match the exterior of your home.

Our external Venetians are motorised for added convenience, removing the need to operate them physically. Our external Venetian blinds are all made using high quality materials, the blades are made from aluminium, a lightweight yet extremely strong metal. They’re a great solution to counteract Melbourne’s unpredictable weather, shading your windows during summer which helps to keep your home cooler and more comfortable.

External blinds

Motorised external blinds are an excellent solution for improving the comfort and enhancing the energy efficiency of your home. They also help protect the inside of your home and items such as artwork, furnishings and flooring from sun damage. Because they prevent the sun’s rays from reaching the glass, they are ideally suited for large west and north-facing windows that get the most sun. External blinds can help you save on energy bills by keeping your home cooler and more comfortable for longer.

External blinds can also provide total blockout for bedrooms, maintaining darkness at night or during the day to help promote restful sleep. They’re also very simple to operate when motorised, making them an easy and practical solution for elderly people and those with limited mobility.  

Honeycomb Cellular Blinds

Honeycomb Cellular Blinds are one of the most energy efficient window furnishings available. The unique double wall cell design of honeycomb blinds creates air pockets which trap air, providing additional insulation for your windows. This trapped air acts a a barrier minimising the transfer of heat between the inside and outside of your home.

Honeycomb or Cellular blinds are available in motorised and cordless options, making them child safe and easy to operate. Adding optional LightGuard to reduce light leakage helps keep your rooms dark. Honeycombs are available in multiple cell sizes, colours and fabric options including sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics. Cell size as well as single or double cells will influence the amount of insulation honeycomb blinds will provide. Typically larger cells will trap more air and provide more insulation, as will double cell blinds compared to single cell blinds. You must also consider the type of material or fabric, where your blinds are mounted, and how they are installed as these can all impact how well honeycomb blinds insulate your windows.
