Discovering Elegance and Versatility: Norman Shutters, Blinds & Shades in Dromana, Mornington Peninsula

Welcome to the enchanting Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, where the weather can change from one moment to the next. Amidst the coastal beauty and ever-changing landscapes, we have the pleasure of exploring a remarkable home in Dromana that epitomises elegance and functionality.

“We love that Norman is keeping the future in mind with their shutters being made up of 100% sustainably sourced timber.” – Nick

What sets this home apart is its extensive use of Norman Shutters, Blinds, and Shades, seamlessly integrated into every corner of the property. Let’s delve into the story of this stunning abode and its owner, designer and builder, Nick, who has masterfully transformed a 1970s house into a modern coastal retreat.

As we step into Nick’s home (and latest project), we are greeted by a sense of serenity and sophistication. Nick welcomes us with warmth and enthusiasm, eager to share the journey of transforming his 1970s house into a contemporary coastal haven. With a keen eye for design and a commitment to sustainability, the Woodlore Shutter compliments the windows of the first space we step into. Nick has curated a space that effortlessly blends modern aesthetics with the timeless charm of the Mornington Peninsula.

“The great thing about the Honeycomb Shade is the fact that we can have the light coming in and also having the block-out feature below.” – Nick

One of the defining features of Nick’s home is its abundant use of natural light, accentuated by the strategic placement of products such as Norman’s Day/Night Motorised Honeycomb Shade. From the pool house to the media room and children’s bedrooms, every space is bathed in soft, diffused light, creating an inviting and tranquil atmosphere.

“The motorised roller allows us to click a button, the roller comes up and we can instantly see the sunrise.” – Nick

Nick’s preference for sustainably sourced timber aligns perfectly with Norman’s commitment to eco-friendly materials, ensuring that every window treatment reflects his ethos of environmental responsibility.

As we explore each room of the house, we are struck by the versatility and functionality of Norman products. In the media room, Nick demonstrates how the Soluna Roller Shade with LightGuard 360 offers both light-control and privacy. In the children’s bedroom, safety and practicality are paramount, with the Blockout Shutter being cordless to ensure a secure and serene environment for restful sleep.

“Even the narrow windows in the home were furnished with Norman’s Woodlore Shutters fitting in there quite well … We obviously push the Norman product to our clients when it looks like this.” – Nick

Throughout the home, Norman Woodlore Shutters emerge as a timeless and elegant choice, elevating the aesthetic appeal of every space. From the bedroom to the ensuite, Nick showcases how Norman Woodlore Plus Waterproof Shutters seamlessly blend style with practicality, offering waterproof solutions for moisture-prone areas and rust-proof hinges for lasting durability. The Woodlore Shutters add a touch of sophistication to the interiors while allowing for customisable light control and privacy.

“Usually Venetian blinds are really tricky to work with but because these blinds from Norman self-level, it makes it really easy.” – Nick

Our tour of Nick’s exquisite home reminds us of the transformative power of quality window furnishings. With Norman, Nick has created a sanctuary that not only reflects his personal style but also prioritises comfort, sustainability, and functionality. From the breathtaking views of the ocean to the intimate corners of each room, Norman Shutters, Blinds, and Shades stand as a testament to craftsmanship and innovation, enhancing the beauty and liveability of Nick’s coastal oasis. We can’t wait to see what he builds next!
