Now that we have the carpets organised, next on the list is curtains/blinds.
As I have posted before, we are considering one, or a combination of:
- Timber Venetians
- Roller Blinds (Hollands)
- Double Roller Blinds (one roller with sunblock, the other roller total blockout)
and now after discovering them, Ventex blinds.
We didn't know these existed, so I'm guessing there are others that don't either. They are basically a venetian but the blades are made of material more like that of a holland blind, with fiberglass rods in the edges to keep them straight.
Does anyone have Ventex blinds? What are they like as far as
1) Blocking out heat?
2) Blocking out light?
Also, we went to the nearest Luxaflex showroom this morning and we loved their products but they certainly aren't cheap!! The lady told us that most people spend between $10,000 and $15,000 on window coverings and my husband and I nearly fell over. If we were to get single holland blinds (which is their cheapest product) through them our whole house will cost almost $8,000... is this justified with quality? It seems like such an excessive amount!
Any comments greatly appreciated.

I'm interested in the Ventex venetians as well but have not been able to find anyone who has had any experience with them. Interestingly these venetians are made by Mardo in WA and Mardo is owned by Kresta (which also owns Vista). They also have an online site you can buy them from; http://www.innercityhomeproducts.com.au/. Includes prices for various window finishings and custom fitting as well.
I also came across something about Ventex "Luna" venetians as well which appeared to be the same type of blind but with greater light block out.
As is typically the case for stuff I'm interested in, it appears these are the most expensive venetians they have, even more than their wood ones...
