Motorised Roller Blinds in the Gold Coast
Motorised blinds are becoming more popular in homes across the Gold Coast due to their ease of operation, ability to filter varying levels of light, amount of privacy they offer and the fact that they are becoming more affordable due to improvements in technology. With a slimline fit and a sleek look to them, they will give any home a feel of modern luxury.
Often motorised indoor blinds are utilised in living areas, main bedrooms and those hard to reach places where a chain may not be a suitable operation option. At Gold Coast Blinds & Shutters, we can program the blinds to work individually or in groups to suit almost every request to make use even easier.

Types of blind motorisation
We offer a range of motorised roller blind solutions, which you can read more about below:
25mm Battery Motor
Our range of battery motors use the latest Li-Ion battery technology which will last more than 6 months on a single charge. When removing the need for a power cable any previous complications associated with motorised projects seem to fade away. No longer will you need to worry if power is easily accessible, if holes need to be drilled to conceal cabling or how much the electrician will cost.
We recommend battery motors for a light reno job or a bit of added luxury during a home facelift.
You can also use a power pack to plug in your micro usb to save running cords to charge your blinds.
35mm Battery Motor
Same as the 25mm motor with slightly more power for some larger width blinds. Still no need for any wiring and will last more than 6 months as well.
The 35mm battery operated motor is ideal for blinds with larger widths and linked blinds so that you do not lose functionality and the motor will not struggle with the extra weight.
You can also use a power pack to charge the 35mm battery motor. Any power pack that you can plug a standard USB-A to Micro USB cord into, if you’ve got a phone power pack lying around at home, these are a great option.
Hard Wired AC Motor
The hardwired AC motor is ideal for large renovation projects or new homes. For an experienced electrician we can provide the Molex cables to be wired in place prior to the completion of the blinds to ensure a smooth installation.
We have partnered with an experienced electrician meaning we can take provide a turn-key solution and take the fuss out of you searching/scheduling in trades. We can provide this service for a small cost.
As these motors are hard wired there is no need for charging and you will get infinite use from the motor.
How much do motorised roller blinds cost?
Just like all window coverings, the cost of motorised roller blinds will largely depend on how many windows you wish to cover, the amount of fabric / material used, as well as the labour for a professional installation. To get an estimate, contact us for your free measure and quote.
Can you motorise existing roller blinds?
If you’re particularly attached to the look and feel of your current roller blinds but wish they were a little bit more functional, we might be able to motorise your existing blinds. If you’ve previously purchased blinds from us and the initial budget couldn’t accommodate motorised blinds, we are happy to retro-fit / add motors to your existing GCBS blinds.
What areas can you install motorised roller blinds?
If you wish to cover hard-to-access windows that are high up or placed behind heavy furniture, then motorised roller blinds might be the best option for you. However, motorised blinds are suitable for any areas in the home. Some popular spaces to install motorised indoor blinds include the living room, bedroom, kitchen, dining room and study.
How long do motorised blinds last?
This depends on the type of blinds you have. If your motorised blinds are connected to the main system of your home, they can essentially last forever provided their mechanics are not damaged. Motorised blinds that are battery powered may need their battery replaced every five years.
How long do electric blinds take to charge?
Electric blinds generally take a few hours to completely charge, up to 8 depending on your blind. However, they don’t need to be charged very often. On average, your blinds need to be charged every 3 to 6 months, or more regularly if it’s a heavy blind or it’s used a lot.
Can existing blinds be motorised?
They certainly can! Some customers love the look and feel of their current blinds and simply want to to improve functionality and practicality. Existing blinds can be motorised by adding a motor to replace the mechanism that makes the blinds tilt. Ask our friendly team for a quote to convert your manual blinds into electric.
