5 Reasons to Buy Vertical Blinds at Newcastle Carpet One
At Newcastle Carpet One, we offer a range of vertical blinds to suit the needs of our customers.
A popular choice in many commercial and domestic buildings, vertical blinds are window coverings that have vanes running from ceiling to floor. Depending on the room and window specifications, the blades come in a wide range of colours in 2 widths which are cut and adjusted to provide the perfect fit. Vertical blinds are a great way of regulating how much sunlight is able to reach your room without doing away with your privacy, which is highly effective all year round.
What’s more, they tend to be more versatile than traditional Venetian blinds, which feature horizontal vanes, as they are typically more flexible and adjustable. In fact, vertical blinds come with a whole host of benefits you may not have considered:
1. Great for a chic and minimalist feel
Vertical blinds provide understated chic for a wide variety of tastes. For example, if you prefer a minimalist aesthetic, vertical blinds are very much in keeping with sleek and toned down decor, a look that is often very popular in corporate environments.
Alternatively, if you would like to kit out your room in more idiosyncratic interiors, vertical blinds are a great way of making sure you do not go overboard. Balancing the chic with the zany can make for a visually impressive and sophisticated space.
2. Easily adjustable
Vertical blinds are some of the easiest window coverings on the market to alter. They can be adjusted quickly and easily to fit even the trickiest of window spaces such as bay windows or expansive commercial windows.
3. Available in a wide range of textures and finishes
The range of materials that we use to make up the vanes of our vertical blinds is wide and suited to accommodate customers’ needs. Whether you’re looking for something light, sleek and breezy or something more heavy-weight, we’re on hand to advise about the best materials and styles for your needs.
4. More cost-effective than other types of blinds and curtains
Vertical blinds tend to be the most cost effective window covering on the market, without compromising on style or durability. This is particularly true for commercial buildings that feature large stretches of windows.
5. Simple to operate
Some blinds can be quite tricky to operate, particularly those that run in a horizontal direction. However, vertical blinds work more like curtains in that they can be easily moved from left to right on blind tracks at the top of window panes. These can be controlled by wands or cords, and are particularly convenient for spaces that need to accommodate children, pets, or the elderly.
If you are on the lookout for an efficient and fuss-free blind covering, let Newcastle Carpet One take care of things for you. We sell some of the best vertical blinds in Newcastle, and are dedicated to providing the best customer service around. Don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information

If you’re looking for a cost-effective yet attractive way of adding blinds to your home, then double roller blinds are ideal.
As the name suggests, they consist of not one, but two blinds. The first is made of translucent or sunscreen material, which allows you to see out, while ensuring protection from the sun. The second is made of opaque material, which blocks out all light.
When it comes to designing your double roller blinds, the world is your oyster: there are as many options, in terms of colours and patterns, as there are interiors.
Benefits of double roller blinds
One of the major benefits of double roller blinds (also known as dual roller blinds or double view blinds) is that they give you options.
On sunny days, when you want to enjoy the warming effects of sunlight and see the outside world, the translucent or sunscreen blind allows you to do both. At the same time, it protects your home from the damaging effects of sunlight and maintains privacy.
However, when you want total darkness or maximum insulation, all you have to do is unravel your block-out blind.
Moreover, double roller blinds look great.
You can design them anyway you like. For a sleek, stylish appearance, choose two blinds of the same colour. To bring some dynamic to your interior, go for two contrasting colours. And, if you’d like to add curtains for an attractive, softening effect, that’s fine, too!
Double roller blinds are suitable for nearly any room, including kitchens, bathrooms and laundries, because they’re usually made of fire retardant, mould-resistant materials.
Cleaning them is a cinch: all they need is a vacuum to remove dust, then a wipe-over with a cloth and some warm, soapy water.
Should the blockout or the sunscreen fabric be placed closest to the window?
In the majority of homes, it makes most sense to place the translucent fabric or sunscreen blind nearest the window.
This layer usually gets the most use, given that most people like to let sunlight in during the day.
Come night time – or whenever darkness and warmth are needed – simply lower the block-out blind over the translucent one.
Which fabrics can be paired in a double roller blind?
Choosing your double roller blind’s fabric is the fun part. In terms of colours and patterns, there are double roller blind fabrics to suit pretty much every interior design.
You can choose two similar colours or, for attention-grabbing double roller blinds, go for contrasting shades.
Either way, double roller blinds usually consist of a blockout blind, made of opaque material, and a sunscreen blind, made of translucent material.
If you like, you can opt for a light filtering blind, which diffuses any natural light that enters your home, without compromising privacy.
What do I do if I can’t fit a double roller blind into my window recess?
If you’re unable to add double roller blinds to your window recess, then the solution is easy: all you have to do is install two separate blinds.
The first – the translucent or sunscreen – should go on the inside, giving you and your home protection from sunlight and privacy, while letting in natural light.
The second – the blockout blind – should go on the outside, where you can access it easily, when you need total darkness and insulation.
Between the two, you’ll have complete control over light filtration, privacy and insulation.

Sometimes there’s just nothing is better than timber flooring when it comes to the look and finish of your home.
High quality, durability and with an aesthetically pleasing appeal, hardwood adds both class and character.
However, many people find it hard to decide the type of hardwood style and finish that will be most suitable to their needs.
When it comes to selecting the right wood for your flooring, one of the first choices that needs to be made is the level of gloss and sheen. Deciding whether to use matte or gloss timber flooring can greatly affect the appearance of your rooms.
Both matte and gloss options have their pros and cons, and there are number of things you should consider when choosing your timbre.
Sheen intensity is generated by the reflection on the finishing of hardwood flooring. Different kinds of hardwood produce varying sheen levels.
Levels of sheen also differ between manufacturers depending on the application procedures they employ when applying finishes to the wood.
Sheen levels are widely varied in wood, but the most basic distinction is either a matte or gloss finish.
Matte timber flooring
Matte finishes are sleek and stylish and have vastly grown in popularity in recent years.
Matte timber flooring has a sheen level of between 10-25% gloss and acts as an inconspicuous backdrop to your home decor.
Matte finishes look great when paired with muted tones, and brief splashes of colour.
In addition to looking modern and chic, matte floors also help to mask dust build-up and footprints, making them great for children’s rooms and high-traffic passages.
Many homeowners choose matte finishes as they require less maintenance and don’t show scratches or marks as much as highly glossed floors.
If you are a fan of the casually sophisticated look of Scandinavian style flooring, popular in Europe and widely imitated in Australia, installing matte timber flooring in your home is a great way to achieve this look.
Gloss timber flooring
Gloss timber flooring gives a timeless and elegant look to your hardwood floors.
While they require slightly more maintenance, gloss floors are a great way to bring light into the home as they reflect far more than matte finishes.
Gloss floors are great paired with vintage and art-deco furniture, and bursts of white for a high-class finish in your living areas.
While gloss timber floors do show more marks than matte timber floors, selecting a semi-gloss finish can be a good alternative if you prefer the aesthetics of a higher reflective coating.
Choosing a high-gloss finish might be more suitable for homes without small children, pets or environments where damage is more likely to occur.
It is true that gloss floors might be a less convenient option in some ways, but they do provide a very attractive finish which is still very popular amongst homeowners.
Matte vs Gloss timber floors
Whether you choose matte or gloss timbre for your flooring, adding hardwood to your home will greatly enhance the style and comfort of your living areas.

The traditional look incorporates design elements from different centuries to create a family friendly and elegant interior.
The traditional look incorporates design elements from different centuries to create a family friendly and elegant interior. Stick to warm, rich colours, using dark wood and a variety of textures. Fusing bold accent colours with neutral coloured walls creates a warm and inviting space. Keep the look simple to highlight the sophistication of the room. Our Truscott carpet in Vintage Cream and Pewter Illusion colours along with our Cambridge Oak Dark and Antique Wenge flooring, set the scene for this gracefully designed interior.
