What others have to say

Don’t just take our word for it. See below some of our customer's experiences, and the impact of having Duette® shades in their homes.

"I have had Duette blinds for over 7 years and I love them. They are easy to use, give a contemporary look and are very robust. They also keep the warmth in in the winter and the heat out in the summer."

"I’m extremely pleased with my Luxaflex Duette Trufit blinds and can honestly say our blinds look perfect for our new build apartment which has floor to ceiling windows in every room. I’m so glad I trusted the expert who worked with me to create an artistic and practical response to the modern architecture and views outside.

The windows are a mix of room darkening and semi-translucent which move top to bottom or bottom to top and anything in between, thereby allowing the right mix of privacy and fabulous light or night time views. I’ve really noticed a beneficial change in the temperature in the apartment - the morning sun used to make the bedrooms very hot but the temperature in all the rooms is noticeably even and more pleasant. Well done and thank you."

Save on your energy bills
