Which curtains and blinds increase the value of your home?

There are many ways that you can boost the value of your home – and beautiful curtains, blinds and awnings is one of them!

At Bob Burns Blinds, you don’t need to spend a fortune on your window treatments to impress potential buyers. But you do need to understand which window treatments hold their value, and deliver maximum profit when you’re ready to sell your home.

Pick #3: Easy living with motorised blinds

Indoor and outdoor motorised blinds offer unparalleled convenience, control and comfort at the touch of a button. This affordable technology brings an innovative and modern sophistication to your window furnishings, and is sure to excite prospective buyers.

Get ready for your blinds and awnings to glide open and close individually or as a group. They can even stop exactly where you’d like! Plus, you have the option to automatically raise or lower your window coverings at certain times throughout the day, optimising your home’s energy efficiency.

Motorisation can also be an effective option for difficult to reach windows or heavy window coverings that can be challenging to manoeuvre.

Here’s why you’ll love them:

  • They have a clean, seamless modern look with no cords, making them child and pet safe
  • They’re easy to operate, convenient and innovative, with remote or smart phone applications available
  • They can be motorised by battery or hardwire 240v
  • They provide complete light and mood control and are especially convenient for media or theatre rooms.

Pick #4: Keep your home safe with security products

Homes that feature security doors, screens or roller shutters are a desirable proposition. Why? Not only do they evoke a feeling of safety, but their modern look and curb appeal can be attractive to many buyers.

Did you know that security products installed in your home can even earn you a discount on your home and contents insurance premiums? They also offer internal comfort by allowing fresh air to flow through your home.

Here’s why you’ll love them:

  • Security doors increase your home’s safety, provide airflow, and are available in mesh or beautiful laser cut screen designs
  • Roller shutters protect your home against intruders and the elements. They block out light, reduce noise and keep your house cool
