What does inside & outside mount mean?

This refers to the way in which the window furnishing will be hung, either inside or outside the window opening. Inside mounts are mounted inside the window opening that is recessed from the wall. Outside mounts hang outside the window opening either on the wood frame or above and beyond the wood frame. Inside mount is the most common way to hang blinds today and provides a nice, clean look. Outside mounts are great for doors or windows with a very shallow window sill depth. An outside mount can also be used to make a window appear larger or to hide an unattractive window.

Can & how should Blinds be cleaned?

Cleaning your blinds is an important part of maintaining a sustainable home. We recommend dusting your blinds regularly, and then giving them a good clean once or twice a year. Simple household items, like a damp wipe, can keep your blinds in great condition and dust free. Whether wood, faux wood, fabric, vinyl or aluminium, they can all be cleaned.

Plastic, metal and faux wooden blinds stand up well against the heat, steam and grease found in Brisbane kitchens, and are easy to clean – just wipe off dust and debris with a soft cloth. A mix of one part water, one part white vinegar can be used for extra grimy plastic and faux wooden blinds. Close the blinds and wipe over each slat, then turn them over to clean the other side.

Bathroom blinds can be cleaned the same way as kitchen blinds. During Brisbane & Ipswich winters, the dampness and lack of sunshine can contribute to mould on faux wood blinds, but a white vinegar and water mix will easily get rid of it. Avoid fabric or wooden blinds in the bathroom, as they can warp and absorb moisture.

Faux wooden and wooden blinds will need to be dusted regularly with the soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Close the blinds and gently vacuum each side on the lightest suction setting. To prevent dirt from building-up, wooden blinds can be treated with a quality furnish polish, sprayed onto a soft cloth.

Vacuum fabric blinds, including blockout roller blinds and Roman blinds, to remove dust. Spot treat marks on fabric with an all-purpose spray cleaner and damp cloth, and use a dry sponge (or rubber sponge) from a hardware store to remove stubborn spots on vinyl vertical blinds. If they become heavily soiled, the best thing to do is have them professionally cleaned.

Do you have a showroom that we can come visit?

Presently we have a showroom that comes to you with our sales representative. However, we are also currently working on our customer showroom at our Brisbane office located in Sumner.

I would totally recommend Shutterup Blinds. I had 3 quotes and Shutterup Blinds was definitely the most reasonable and affordable for a quality product. Dan Button was the person who measured and quoted for my shutters and roller blinds. Dan is very professional, honest and helpful in explaining the products offered. Dan kept me updated with delivery and the installation time frames which was much faster than expected. The installation was painless as Ravneel was meticulous...he even cleaned up after himself leaving no mess!My shutters and blinds look fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with it. The quality of the product and service from Shutterup Blinds is great and I will not hesitate to use them again!Thank you Dan, Andrea and Ravneel!

This is not the first time we have used Shutterup Blinds and again they have been a good company to deal with. Dan turned up on time to do a measure and quote and was helpful in providing a wide selection of fabrics to choose from. He also pointed out some that were on sale and good value. Received quote by e-mail shortly after and quote was very competitive. Placed the order and shortly after we were contacted for installation date. Installer turned up on time removed the old blinds and installed new ones very quickly and efficiently and left no mess and disposed of the old blinds. I have no hesitation in recommending them on quality of the product and their service. Many thanks to Dan and his team.

Shutterup Blinds was recommended to me by a friend & I liked that they were a local business. Dan was my first point of contact, he was a true professional & I highly recommend their products.I had 3 quotes done & Shutterup Blinds was definitely the most affordable for a quality product. They were honest & upfront with delivery & the installation time frame. The installation was painless & Ravneel even cleaned up after himself like he was never here. If there was 10 stars I’d give them 11! Most professional company I have ever dealt with in my lifetime!

Hard to know what to say - Dan came and measured up, then sent a written quote the same day. The order was delivered earlier than anticipated (which was great) at a time to suit us and the fitting was quick, courteous and professional. What more can you ask for?Everybody loves the shutters, especially us.If we ever needed shutters again there's only one company we'd go to!

My experience with Shutterup Blinds was exceptional! I contacted Andrea after seeing an advertisement on Facebook. She was very helpful in booking a free consultation. Dan came out to our home at a convenient time for me to give me a free quote. He was able to provide detailed information regarding styles and fabric types. He ultimately helped in the decision and was able to give me a quote on two separate fabric choices. We decided to go with Shutterup due to their fantastic customer service and comparable quote. Dan installed our blinds quite quickly and was done exceptionally! We are very happy with the final product and will think of Shutterup for our next blinds purchase.
