SmartDrapes are the Next Breakthrough in Shade Solutions

The world of shade solutions is a vibrant hub of innovation and creativity, and at NZ Blinds, we take pride in offering the latest in modern and stylish window treatments for homes and offices across New Zealand.

Smart drapes are currently stealing the spotlight, emerging as one of the most thrilling new additions to New Zealand’s blind scene. If you’re considering upgrading or installing new blinds, delve into the details below to uncover why smart drapes are the talk of the town!

Decoding the Magic of SmartDrapes?

Smart drapes feature a vertical sheer shade with a unique undulating sheer and fabric vane design, crafted to deliver a blend of style, versatility, and seamless indoor-outdoor living. This ingenious construction combines the best aspects of vertical blinds and roller blinds, allowing users to effortlessly switch between a sheer and solid fabric with a simple twist of the wand. Opening or closing the vanes is as easy as sliding the wand across the shade.

Whether you’re strolling through an open or closed shade, the practicality and family-friendly nature of smart drapes shine through.

The Advantages of Embracing SmartDrapes

Smart drapes bring a plethora of benefits to both residential and commercial spaces. Here are some key advantages:

  • Versatility at its Finest: Smart drapes excel in versatility, serving as both a decorative curtain and a functional blind. With a quick turn of the colour-coordinated wand, users can seamlessly transition from a sheer, light-filtering shade to a solid, room-darkening drape, allowing precise control over light and privacy levels.
  • Safety and Simplicity Combined: Safety and ease of use are paramount with smart drapes. The wand design eliminates the hazards associated with dangling cords, ensuring a safe environment for households with children and pets. Additionally, the lightweight wand mechanism guarantees effortless operation for all, smoothly transitioning from day to night.
  • Modern Features for Modern Living: Tailored for contemporary homes, smart drapes are perfect for large windows and doors, capable of spanning up to 12 metres when two shades are combined. Their sleek track systems, available in five hues, seamlessly integrate into any décor, while the removable vanes offer hassle-free maintenance and replacement options.
