Vinyl Vs. PVC Blinds

Pros and Cons so you can make the right choice:

PVC Blinds

PVC is a synthetic material used in a multitude of plastic products in various industries, and, also used in Window Blinds.

Polyvinyl chloride a.k.a PVC blinds have been a popular choice for window coverings. These Blinds cover most of the window and they work well in humid rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. They won’t crack or fade, which is why they have been in big demand for a lot of home owners and tenanted properties.

There are a lot of other Window covering choices such as Vinyl, timber and many more, so let’s evaluate the Pro’s and Con’s before you buy.


  • PVC blinds have the benefit of being affordable when you’re on a budget.
  • Being a synthetic material, it has high durability and can handle extreme UV light from the sun without warping, cracking or fading. The material also gives you peace of mind by knowing that you can use them in any moist environment without having the fear of rust.
  • Save on heating and cooling costs when you choose to install PVC material made blinds. Its insulation properties assist in keeping your home or office warm in winter and cool in summer


Firstly, we feel that the Pros heavily weigh out the cons, but sometimes PVC Blinds may seem to leave a cluttered look. You may want to opt out for a more natural look. Customers may also have doubts about purchasing a synthetically made product and keeping these installed in their homes.

Vinyl Blinds

Vinyl blinds are the new standard in the home improvement window world. Being easy to clean, moisture resistant, and serve their purpose of blocking unwanted light. Aluminium blinds in the past did the jobs that vinyl blinds now perform, which means safety and durability as they won’t rust or cut fingers.

Vinyl blinds are cost effective and come in a wide variety of styles including vertical blinds. They aren’t as durable or visually appealing as some other choices, but, functionally, they are very sound.

Vinyl blinds however do not insulate your windows. While they are considered affordable and attractive you may want to choose another fabric to insulate heat. We recommend the Galaxy Cellular Blinds. The ergonomic design of the honeycomb-like cells traps the heat, which means less energy consumption and more comfort.

5 Questions you need to ask a Blinds expert before Installation

Our customers have had a lot of questions recently, so over the next few weeks we’ve put together the answers you have been looking for when it comes to your window covering decisions. Whether you have a JHS Install or not, it’s great to know:

Question 3: Are Motorised Blinds worth the cost?

Welcome to the world of Automation and Technology. Why is it we always question the cost of something that in the long run will make our life a whole lot easier?

Did you know that the cost of operating a single motorised blind is less than $1 per year? Crazy huh?! So, let the Blinds do the thinking for you and come home to the perfect temperature. JHS Blinds and Screens recommend and use SOMFY Motors, due to their reliability and noise reduced products.

When thinking of Motorised Blinds for your home there are several factors to consider:

Control Options – A big benefit with automated window coverings are the control options. You can control via the remote or even with the app on your smartphone. Better yet, your whole week can be programmed by a schedule. Just make sure when choosing your preferred installer, that they programme the schedule on your remote and leave you the right trouble shoot information for later use.

Noise – This is probably something you wouldn’t even think about. Motor noise. Don’t purchase something only to find it wasn’t what you were looking for. Ask your preferred installer about the level of noise from the motor. Once again, JHS uses SOMFY Motors for one of those reasons. Somfy’s range of Sonesse motors have been designed for silence and simplicity.

Price – Everybody knows the cost of Motorised Blinds is more than the cost of manual Blinds, but, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that choosing Motorised Blinds are a great investment! In addition to the security and comfort these blinds bring, they can also add value to your home.

Warranty – JHS Blinds & Screens value the meaning of warranty. It helps with our installation process because it gives our customers peace of mind. All of SOMFY’s motors and remotes come with a 5 Year Warranty. Feel free to contact us today to discuss further.

Company – Finally, you’ve got to this point. The Blinds are perfect, the price is affordable and the noisy issue has been checked off your list. Next, think about the Company. Have they been in the game for long? Are they reputable? Genuine and sincere? Just like you thought ahead about the investment these Blinds bring to your home, you need to think about any future issues that may arise. Will they be around to help you?
