Did you know that, on average, up to 87% of heat gain in the average home is through windows? Perth’s hot summer climate means many West Aussies find themselves blasting the air-conditioning and pulling down the shades to escape the heat. While air-con may lower the temperature of your home, it will raise your electricity bill.


One of the easiest ways to reduce your energy bill and the temperature inside your home is to find the right block-out curtains or blinds. The design of most block-out window coverings will ensure your home keeps cool in summer and warm in winter.


Which window covering should I choose?

Here at Vision Décor, we stock a range of indoor blind and curtain options, along with outdoor window coverings in a range of fabrics and designs to suit almost every home and budget.



Curtains are available in almost every colour and fabric, allowing you to match them perfectly to your existing home décor. Both stylish and functional, not only will they enhance a room’s look, but they’ll also improve the insulation in your home. For maximum flexibility and heat protection, pair your curtains with blinds.


Roller Blinds

If you prefer the look of roller blinds, opt for a block-out fabric to ensure maximum efficacy. Sunscreen roller blinds are fantastic for sun filtering and privacy. During the summer months, they’ll help keep your home cool and furniture protected while still allowing light in.


Window Shutters

Our window shutters are both stylish and effective at blocking out the harsh summer sun. Choose your material, sit back, and enjoy the coastal feel these shutters bring to any room!


ZipTrak Blinds

ZipTrak blinds are available in a range of fabric options and can block 99% of the sun’s UV rays and up to 85% of the heat from the sun. They are perfect for outdoor areas or rooms where you’d like to enjoy an uninterrupted view and plenty of light.


How to choose the best window coverings to keep the heat out of your home

  1. Think about how much light you like. Do you want the room completely dark, or do you prefer ambient natural light?
  2. What are your privacy needs? If your neighbours overlook you, choose a block-out fabric.
  3. Consider where you need window coverings. Wet, humid spaces like bathrooms or kitchens don’t always mix well with fabric blinds.
  4. Consider the size and shape of your windows.
  5. Ensure you have a clear idea of your budget.
