Regardless of the type of blind that you select, choosing this type of window covering means that you are in full control of light, temperature and the overall aesthetics of your home. Available in a range of materials including wood, faux wood, aluminium and fabric, window blinds can add a level of sophistication that matches the existing colours, fabrics and designs in a room.

Of course, every type of blind brings a different look and feel, which is where the team at Harvey Furnishings can help. For almost 60 years, we have been in the business of manufacturing and selling window furnishings such as blinds and have developed a keen eye for what looks great in New Zealand homes.

Think blinds might be a good option? Here is an overview of the various types of blinds available at Harvey Furnishings:

Roller Blinds - Roller blinds can be layered with curtains or hung on their own. There are two variants available at Harvey Furnishings, including sunscreen, for sun filtering and privacy, and blockout, to keep the light out. We can also custom make your roller blinds, in a wide range of colours and fabrics to perfectly fit your windows.

Roman BlindsReady made roman blinds are made of plain fabrics and are controlled by a chain at one end of the blind. Roman blinds can be folded up neatly during the day and pulled down to cover the entire window at night. Custom made roman blinds can be made using the same fabric as custom made curtains or cushions - offering great design coordination and functions such as blocking out light and offering thermal properties.

Venetian Blinds - Popular in New Zealand villas and bungalows, venetian blinds are among the most traditional type of blinds. You are able to tilt the horizontal slats for optimal light and temperature control as well as adding to your privacy. At Harvey Furnishings, there are three types of venetian blinds including wooden, faux wood and aluminium - all designed to add value to your home. We feature exclusive brands such as Firenze, Bali and Zebro and a readymade faux wood option from the Fresco brand.

Vertical BlindsAs suggested by their name,vertical blinds offer vertical slats rather than horizontal. Drawing to the side, vertical blinds are less likely to collect dust and very easy to operate. Vertical blinds come in a range of colours, textures and fabric types and are a great option for covering large windows and ranch sliders.
