Venetian blinds are one of the most popular external shading solutions for residential and commercial buildings. 

They’re stylish, durable and keep your space at a comfortable temperature year round.  

If you’re thinking of adding some to your home or business, you’ll want to know how much they cost and if they’re worth the investment.  

Here’s everything you need to know.

How Much Do External Venetian Blinds Cost?

Venetian blinds are made unique to your exact size, colour and feature requirements, so it’s hard to give a definitive indication of cost.  

That’s why there is no set cost for external venetian blinds.  

However, generally speaking, the average price of external venetian blinds can range anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars 

In order to get the most return on your investment, you’ll want to ensure you’re purchasing quality venetian blinds from a reputable supplier like Helioscreen.  

Helioscreen’s motorised venetian blinds are market leaders in quality, performance and durability. They can range anywhere from $2000 to $8000+ (including motor) depending on their size and additional features. 

While costs may be higher than those seen in home centres, there is no comparison in the quality and lifespan of our products.

Are They Worth It? 


Here’s 3 reasons why external venetian blinds make a valuable addition to any home.  

1. They Keep Your Home Comfortable Year Round

Helioscreen’s venetian blinds reflect up to 90% of the sun’s heat and UV radiation. Stopping the sun from hitting the window, they keep your home at a comfortable temperature during those sweltering summer days.  

Not to mention, they take the strain off your heating and cooling systems, saving you money on your next power bill.  

Now that’s value. 

2. They’re Durable

Made with thick extruded aluminium pelmets, stainless steel fixtures and UV-resistant components, Helioscreen’s venetian blinds are built to handle the harshest Australian conditions.  

Even better, all our products come with a full 5 year warranty on the system, parts and motor, so you know you’re investing in a quality product built to last.  

3. They Operate Effortlessly

Operational via a touch panel, remote control or wall switch, Helioscreen’s automated venetian blinds make controlling the amount of heat and light in your home truly effortless.  

Raising, lowering or tilting the slats is as simple as pressing a button, making them ideal for the elderly or mobility impaired, as well as hard to reach windows. 

For lovers of home automation, there’s also the option to add additional sun and wind sensors to your venetian blinds. These allow your blinds to react automatically to the weather, without you having to lift a finger. 

Do I Need External Venetian Blinds, Outdoor Blinds or a Privacy Screen?

To help inform your decision, we’ll look at how venetian blinds stack up to other popular models such as:  

Outdoor Fabric Blinds

Similar to venetian blinds, Helioscreen’s outdoor fabric blinds are also capable of repelling up to 90% of the suns’ heat 

They’re a great choice for residential and commercial patios, balconies, courtyards and more. In fact, they boast many of the same benefits of venetian blinds in terms of their easy operation, durable construction and stylish appearance.  

Privacy Screens

Helioscreen’s Sideline Privacy Screen is a great, durable option for those looking to add privacy, sun and wind protection to balconies, terraces and garden areas.  

Unlike venetian and fabric blinds, the privacy screen has a side pulling profile that easily attaches to walls, handrails or columns.
