We are a small family business specialising in high quality window treatments for the harsh Australian climate. I am Danish, married to an Aussie, who I met in London back in 1993. In 2013, we renovated our home in Canberra, and having grown up in Denmark I was acutely aware that you don’t have to be cold inside your home regardless of how cold it is outside. As a consequence, we fully insulated our home and installed European hydronic heating and European uPVC tilt/turn windows. Dressing the tilt/turn windows wasn’t an easy task, so when I came across the German custom made Cosiflor blinds I decided to buy them for our newly installed windows.
I was so impressed with the Cosiflor blinds that I contacted the German manufacturer to talk to them about the potential of importing the blinds into the Australian market. And that is how Nordic Blinds came about. It was a steep learning curve! When I first started out, I thought the best way for me to understand the full process would be to install the blinds as well. This way I would have full understanding of the whole process. So, I used an electric drill for the first time in my life – mind you, it was on my own windows! As the business has grown, my husband, David, has taken over as the installer.
I love visiting clients to help them with their window dressings, and I love the connections I have with window companies, builders and architects as well as the manufacturers in Germany. I get excited every time I help a client decide on blinds for their home. I absolutely love my own blinds and I know that others will love them too. In particular, I love hearing from happy clients after we have installed their blinds.
I continue to believe that it is important for people to be comfortable inside their homes. Our Cosiflor blinds not only have the European minimalistic, stylish look; they also provide that extra insulation on windows in a home with double glazed as well as single glazed windows. They enable the client to save money on heating and cooling costs whilst also being more comfortable inside their homes in winter and in summer.
As a family business you can rest assured that quality and excellent service are our priority. Recognised as the 2018 Canberra Women in Business Microcbusiness of the Year, our focus is to ensure that we provide stylish, high quality products which address energy efficiency in the home. This is why we have chosen to associate with Cosiflor blinds, the market leader in Europe. Manufactured in Germany to exacting standards and quality, Cosiflor blinds provide an ideal blind solution for every home, backed by a 5 year warranty.
I would love the opportunity to meet you and introduce you to our blinds.
