Frequently Asked Questions About Motorised Curtains in Melbourne

Are blockout curtains/drapes a good insulator?

Installing block-out curtains or drapes is an effective interior solution if your home needs more insulation. The block-out and insulating features are all thanks to the lining. Also, for these purposes you can install the window coverings to be higher and wider than the window and ensure there’s an overlap in the middle. With fewer gaps, there’s less air transference, helping rooms stay warm in winter and cool in summer. Pelmets add additional insulation, as the air won’t escape at the top.

How are blockout curtains or wave fold sheers installed?

There are multiple installation options with drapes, sheer curtains, and blockouts. Our experts can fit it into your existing moulding. Alternatively, for a higher fitting, we’ll raise it onto the wall or install it into the ceiling. A square set home without cornices makes for easy installation, but if you have a cornice, we’ll install just below it.

What sort of pelmets can be used with curtains?

You can have a pelmet that suits your interior styling, such as painted timber in one of the many available Dulux colours, to match with your walls and hide the top of the curtains. Alternatively, use fabric that’s the same as the curtains, or of a design that co-ordinates well with them.

How much fabric is recommended for sheer curtains in Melbourne?

Vendors have different opinions, but at Alfresco Blinds Co we set the minimum amount of fabric as 2.5 times the width of the space to be covered. This leads to 100% fullness and helps to create the aesthetically pleasing S-waves. For 120% fullness we can even use 3 times the width.

What to look for in quality curtains?

Important factors when buying curtains include a large header and using material that’s at least twice the width of the area to cover. Select quality fabric, as this affects a curtain’s lifespan as well as how it falls. Material that’s too heavy won’t fold correctly; if it’s very light, it doesn’t hold its shape.

What is the difference between S-fold curtains and normal pinch-pleated curtains?

S-Fold curtains have a unique construction which leads to an aesthetically pleasing ‘stacking’. It’s not as bulky once the curtains are open, providing a great look AND it shows off the fabric’s colour and patterns much better. With pleated curtains, much of the detail is lost in the folds.

What are the benefits of S-fold curtains?

If your S-fold curtains hang from the ceiling to the floor and stretch from wall to wall, it can create the illusion of a more spacious area, even if the windows are small. The design adds softness, while the movement and texture also carry aesthetic value.

What is ‘fullness’ in terms of wave-fold, ripple-fold, or sheer curtains?

The fullness refers to the number of folds or waves, but also how deep they are. If there’s more fabric, the curtain has a fuller look, thanks to more visual depth of the folds.

Are solar-powered motors available for motorised curtains?

This is a complex matter as we do provide wire-free and solar options if you have roller blinds. However, for motorised curtains Melbourne homeowners must understand that these installations carry too much weight for solar-powered curtain motors to handle.

What if I can’t get power to my blinds and curtains?

We can install a battery powered blinds & curtain motor if there’s no other accessible power source. You’ll save on electrician costs, which offsets the installation cost. You’ll also save in the long run, and you’ll love that there are no wires in sight.

What happens during a power outage?

We use hardwired 240V motors that you can manually override should there be a power outage. Note that this is only meant for use in an emergency. An alternative is installing our battery powered motorised curtains or blinds. Simply keep them charged and you’ll be prepared should the power fail.

Can one remote control operate multiple curtains and/or blinds?

Yes, multiple curtains and blinds in one room can be operated via one multi-channel remote. Our team will help set it up for easy operation, such as assigning numbers to individual installations and grouping them for convenience.

Alfresco Blinds Co remote control curtains are available in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. You’re welcome to visit our Melbourne showroom at 15/5 Scanlon Drive Epping VIC 3076.
