Frequently asked questions about motorised blinds

Can I buy motorised blinds online?

Yes! You can order custom motorised blinds online from our website. Our motorised blinds online ordering portal allows you to choose from a range of beautiful fabrics and colours, as well as a range of other operational methods. If you are unsure about how to choose the right size custom motorised blind for a particular space, get in touch with us. We can potentially help you measure your space for the correct solution.

How much do motorised blinds cost?

This largely depends on the size of your windows, how many sets of motorised blinds you require, and what additional extras, if any, you wish to add. Larger windows in a living room will obviously cost more to cover than smaller ones in a bedroom. Due to their advanced function, the cost of motorised blinds will always be more than simple manual blinds.

Can motorised blinds be automated?

Yes, motorised blinds can be automated. Motorised blinds have the ability to work with Google Home, Alexa, and a range of other home automation solutions to be completely hands-free. With a complete home automation solution, you can set your new motorised blinds to lower and raise at a particular time of day, or use voice commands to lower and raise them at will. The options are endless!

Do you deliver motorised blinds?

Yes. After you order motorised blinds online using our ordering system, we’ll get to work creating them in our Melbourne factory. From there, we can ship them directly to your door, anywhere in Australia for just $30!
It takes approximately 3 weeks to manufacture and deliver motorised roller blinds. If your order falls outside of this timeframe, we will be in touch. If you’d like to know more about our shipping and returns policy, read more here.
