Quality, made to measure, brand name blinds at greatly reduced prices.
We are a small family owned business who have been supplying the Tasmanian market with custom quality made to measure curtains and blinds since 1984. Our first store was a general store selling many products as well as curtains and blinds located in the small town of Huonville. We then expanded and moved to Kingston in 1989 to concentrate purely on curtains and blinds. Our Kingston store expanded rapidly and our reputation for quality products and service grew just as rapidly, so much so that we decided to develop this website (www.beautifulblinds.com.au).
We pride ourselves on constantly keeping abreast of new and exciting innovations in the window furnishing industry and offer many exclusive products to our clients who visit our stores. Not all these products are available through the website, however we do provide an extensive range of products sourced from the best manufacturers in Australia. These products include the latest in window fashion trends, colours and textures. We will ensure our competitive edge by providing quality products at the best possible price.
All products are, of course backed by factory warranty, we stand behind our products.
Your satisfaction is assured because our knowledgeable, fully trained staff have been selling window coverings for over 20 years.
Although utmost care has been taken to ensure that the colors printed on our web site are accurate, actual colours will vary. In addition, subtle colour differences and textures may not be fully appreciated on some systems due to differences in computer monitors. As our products are all made to measure, and can't be returned, you need to be sure that any color variations that are possible from our scanning of the actual samples are acceptable to you. If an exact colour match is required, then please request a sample before placing your order. Once you receive your sample, keep in mind that all samples may still have minimal dyelot colour variations as stated by the manufacturers.
All natural timber products will vary in colour due to the natural grains inherent in the timber. Western red cedar is graded light - medium and meduim - dark, and variations will be apparent within these gradings. It is therefore important to order all blinds in the same room at the same time to ensure that all blinds are manufactured from the same batch of timber.
Fabric Back Lighting
"Back lighting" happens when light filters in through translucent fabrics from behind. Our swatches don't show you the effect of back lighting, which can soften colours and highlight fabric textures. Light filtering honeycomb blinds are particularly affected.

For both inside and outside mounts the finished measurements of the window treatment are from the top of the headrail to the bottom of the bottomrail for the height. The width is from the left edge of the window treatment to the right edge.
An inside mount fits within the window frame. On inside mounts specific deductions are taken by the factory for operating clearance. These deductions vary for each manufacturer and each product and are only approximate deductions. For more specific details please go to to the product page for the product you are interested in on our site before completing your order.
An outside mount overlaps the window opening. Allowances are not taken by the manufacturer on this product. This is because you will need to supply us the exact measurements that you would like the window treatment to be. This includes adding extra for the width and the height to clear any trim etc if you so wish.
