Veri Shades Specialists
Is it curtains for your tired, old, not-very-functional curtains or existing window treatment? That makes sense to us. Curtains can be appealing because of the myriad of fabric options, but they are limited in how they can filter light, provide privacy, and remain timeless as trends change.
That’s what makes Veri Shades so unique. They appeal to homeowners who like the aesthetic of curtains while also providing more privacy, protection, and versatility to a room’s design.
When it comes to swapping out your window treatments, trust no one other than the experts at Melbourne’s own Delux Blinds. We use Australian made products to create custom window treatments for every project. With over 25 years or experience, you’ll be certain to get the best advice and installation available for your new window treatments.

What makes Veri Shades special?
Veri Shades offer functionality, quality and versatility that is becoming increasingly popular with home owners, commercial properties and interior designers throughout Melbourne.
Traditional curtains offer elegance, softness, and style, however, they are either open or closed. Veri Shades can be closed and yet you are still able to walk through them. They can also go from being a block-out privacy blind to a sheer light-filtering blind with the twist of a wand. Or, of course, you can draw your Veri Shades right back like curtains for full sunlight.
Each time Veri Shades are walked through, the fabric sways out of the way and settles back into place perfectly. With no weights or chains, you can walk right through them at any position opened or closed. This is why they are perfect for creating a soft stylish feature on sliding doors, bi-fold doors, French doors and large windows. In fact, Veri shades can span up to 5.8 metres in width.

Are Veri Shades right for my home?
There’s no reason not to get “veri” excited about Veri Shades if you’re exploring window treatments. They give the effect and versatility of vertical blinds without all of the trappings of cords and weights that can get in the way. Veri Shades can also be opened up and walked through from anywhere, contrasted with vertical blinds and other curtains that have designated splits and entry/exit points. No more having to retract or roll up blinds just to be able to access your outdoor living spaces or let in a little bit of light.
The soft mesh fabric is paired with opaque panels that give the effect of blinds and curtains at the same time. Veri Shades have a modern aesthetic that many homeowners find appealing. Add onto that the fact that they’re so easy to use, and there’s nearly no home that wouldn’t be a fit for Veri Shades.
Benefits of Veri Shades for your home
It’s already rather clear that Veri Shades are versatile just because they can go from airy and open to closed and light blocking with just a twist. However, there are a number of other benefits to be had with these window treatments.
- Ease of use: These blinds can be opened, closed, or retracted with the easy use of a built-in wand.
- Quiet: Even in a breeze, the fabrics and lack of weights and chains make them silent treatments.
- Access: Walk through the blinds anywhere with easy access no matter open or closed.
- Safe: Having zero cords makes them a safer option for homes with children and pets.
- Protective: Made from polyester, these blinds also protect from ultraviolet light up to UPF 50+ and are also fade resistant.
Are Veri Shades difficult to install?
You’re likely going to want to rely on your window treatment professionals for this one. While Veri Shades aren’t necessarily more difficult to install than other types, a degree of precision and accuracy is required especially when it comes to the track. You’ll also want to make sure to take advantage of any warranties that the professional installers offer on the installation itself, to confirm that your blinds are hung properly and made to last.
If you’re worried about timing, don’t be. While it can take up to four weeks for custom orders to come in and be ready for installation, the installation itself can usually be completed in just a day.
How much do Veri Shades cost?
Like with most custom window treatments, the price is going to vary. This is largely a factor of how large of a window you need to cover, since that dictates the amount of material and fabric needed. However, the most common application is to install Veri Shades across a sliding backdoor, which on average costs $1,500 for materials and installation here in Melbourne.
How customisable are Veri Shades?
Veri Shades come in a variety of colours and styles to meet nearly any home aesthetic. Currently, customers can choose from four different fabric types in 19 colours, most of which are neutral to give them a timeless and easy to match versatility. The tracks also come with four different options and in up to six different colours, allowing for different configurations and operability.
Since every Veri Shade installation is measured specifically based on your space, every installation is a custom one. You’ll choose the combination of fabric and track operation that suits your space best. Professional installers will also measure and quote you on your project before anything is ordered so that you’re clear on exactly what to expect.

Frequently Asked Questions About Veri Shades in Melbourne
Can Veri Shades black out a room?
While they might not look like it at first, in a closed position, Veri Shades can block out a room with room darkening panels. Since the panels are separate from one another, it’s possible that a little bit of a light can filter in through gaps from time to time.
Do I have to do anything special to keep them clean?
Separate panels can be taken down from the track and washed by hand with a mild detergent if needed. Just be sure to let them air dry before hanging them again on the track. You can also purchase replacement panels if any are severely damaged.
Are these window treatments manually operated?
They can be manually operated or they can be motorised if you prefer a more hands off approach.
What is the best kind of window for Veri Shades?
While they can be used anywhere you need floor to ceiling coverage for a window, sliding doors make the best fit. That’s because Veri Shades are so easy to walk through and access outdoor living spaces.
