At Material World, we believe we offer great products and service. Don't just take our word for it though - see what our clients have to say below.

  • Such a great team of people who are extremely professional, honest and hard working. The blinds and curtains are reasonably priced and are of excellent quality. Their customer service is exceptional too!

    Rosie, the manager went above and beyond to assist me during my complex circumstances and was fantastic with her problems resolution. I've never encountered a company so willing to help when things go wrong and to not price gouge. She made the whole process stress free. John from Savvy installations was very professional, merticulous and friendly to engage with. He got the job done properly and efficiently without me feeling that I had to constantly supervise his work, unlike with many other tradesmen I've encountered before. Margot did a great job in helping me choose the colour and texture of the blinds/curtains to suit my decor. The end results are brilliant! Would definitely go back to this place in the future. They are the best!!


  • Outstanding service from Material World in Chatswood, replacing Silhouette blinds damaged by others in the cleaning process. Melissa managed the whole process seamlessly. New blinds measured, manufactured and installed precisely as promised. Highly recommended.

    Norman N.

  • My experience with Materials world was exceptional. Great team and quality of service. Installer was amazing, Kathy was so friendly and i would highly recommend them.

    K S.

  • Great quality product with matching excellent service. Really appreciated the advice up front, and good communication when it came to installation (which was done so quickly - like 10 minutes!). Thank you

    Naomi M.

  • Really happy with all the advice I received and my new curtains and blinds look fantastic!

    Caroline K.

  • Material World Ch provides a very professional service, their personal is extremely helpful and supportive. My order was more than average, conditions were pretty difficult
    to cover but everything has been done in reasonable time-frame and with the perfect quality. I'm very happy and satisfied, just wandering around my unit and enjoy its new look.

    Alexey G.

  • Very happy with the whole experience in ordering curtains twice in the past 6 months. In each case, Kathy offered expert advice as to what would give the best effect.
    For the installation, John was meticulous. In the case of first curtain order, there was a delay in material arriving in Australia. I was regularly updated as to possible arrival date. Well worth the wait.

    Cheryl W.

  • Holly and her colleague were exemplary in their customer service - went out of their way to locate an item for me, though it was not going to be very lucrative for them. Item arrived swiftly. Jolly and knowledgeable staff at Material World Chatswood!

How many types of curtain fabric are there?

With so many different styles and designs available, it can be difficult to find the perfect set of curtains to compliment your interiors and fit seamlessly into your home’s decor. The type of fabric affects how the curtains hang and drape, so choosing a high-quality material will ensure durability, coverage and ease of laundering. There are eight different curtain fabrics to choose from. These include:

  • Polyester curtains
  • One of the most common curtain fabrics in Australia, polyester is durable, sturdy and affordable. Easy to care for, this material resists wrinkling, shrinking and stretching and is the perfect solution for first-time curtain customers. This fabric works well for bedroom and living room curtains as it’s easy to care for and maintain.

  • Linen curtains
  • Providing a more tailored and sleek look, linen curtains are perfect for casual dining areas, contemporary living spaces and airy bedrooms. Although the sheer fabric doesn’t block the sun, it allows for natural light to fill your living space. This style is typically dry clean only and should be hung immediately to avoid wrinkling.

  • Cotton curtains
  • Cotton curtains drape well, making them a natural fit for living and dining room areas. Creating a gently filtered light in any space, they’re easy to clean and care for so they’re perfect if you have children at home.

  • Silk curtains
  • While this material is heavier and drapes perfectly, silk is dry clean only, which makes laundering this fabric a challenge. Thankfully there are many polyester based silk look fabrics which don’t have this downside.

  • Velvet curtains
  • An ideal insulator for chillier homes, velvet is a heavy fabric that offers a polished look to more formal areas. The perfect fabric for your media room curtains.

  • Sheer curtains
  • Sheer fabrics are a great option in areas where you wish to diffuse natural light. They’re typically available in neutral shades, such as white, ivory and ecru but also come in a range of printed designs as well.

  • Thermal curtains
  • Made from heavy materials like cotton and polyester, thermal curtains are thick and give your home extra insulation. For really chilly homes we can even interline your curtains with bumph for an extra layer of thermal comfort and noise reduction.

  • Blackout curtains
  • Made of an opaque fabric that’s backed by foam, blackout curtains stop the light from entering your room. The thick fabric also increases your home’s privacy.

    What is the most luxurious fabric for curtains?

    While it depends on your unique aesthetic, linen, silk, and velvet are the best choices to use for window treatments and the most popular curtain fabrics in Australia. These luxurious fabrics hang well, and there are various styles and designs to choose from that will blend seamlessly into your home.

    How much do block out curtains cost?

    Blockout curtains in Sydney can vary in price depending on where you make your purchase. Rather than exceeding your budget, shopping at Material World will ensure you find premium quality designs at extremely affordable prices. For a competitive quote, please get in touch with our friendly team, or visit our fabric shop in Chatswood or Orange, where you can see and feel the quality of our curtains before you place your order.

    In addition to curtains, we also custom make high-quality blinds, which can be expertly fitted to your windows for privacy and light control.
