Why Aluminium is the Best Material for Blinds

What is the best material for blinds? We believe that aluminium has a good case. Aluminium is stylish, durable, cleanable, and affordable and might be just the thing your home needs. We discuss the reasons why aluminium is such a fantastic material for venetian blinds.

Different Colours

Aluminium blinds can come in a huge range of different colours so they can be matched to the existing or potential aesthetics of your home. A great neutral option to try is a white aluminium venetian blind that can work with nearly any existing colour scheme. If you want to see all the different colours available, try out NZ blinds colour picker to find the best colour to suit you.

Thermal Properties

Aluminium also provides some thermal and insulation benefits to your home. The metal material is reflective so can bounce some of the harshest rays away from your home. This can lead to a cooler home in some of those extremely hot summer months.

Versatility in the Home

You can install aluminium venetian blinds just about anywhere in the home without them looking out of place. Need some privacy in your master bedroom? Aluminium blinds will do a great job. Or maybe you are looking for some stylish window coverings for your bathroom or kitchen? Aluminium blinds are up to the task.

Moisture resistance

One of the most significant benefits of aluminium blinds is their moisture resistance. Unlike cloth or other soft material blinds, aluminium doesn’t absorb any moisture which can cause rot or mould in those other materials. This makes aluminium perfectly suited to moist environments in the home such as your kitchen or your bathroom.

Easy to maintain

Maintenance for aluminium blinds is a breeze compared to other blind materials. A smooth, moisture resistant surface means that these blinds can simply be wiped down with a damp cloth or with some all-purpose spray. This not only keeps them looking nice but will also keep them functional for many years to come.


Aluminium blinds are also incredibly cost-effective compared to other styles of window coverings. Installation costs for curtains or wooden blinds can add up, not to mention the cost of the coverings themselves. Aluminium blinds are affordable and can be installed in no time at all by a qualified professional. Combine this with their durability and you won’t have to worry about spending a tonne down the line on your window coverings.
