Providing elegant window fashions since 1997!
At Suttle Shades, we believe that every home deserves a finish that reflects the unique tastes and style of the homeowner. With a wide range of quality blinds, shutters and awnings on offer, Suttle Shades provides customers of Wollongong and the Illawarra region with elegant solutions to meet their specific project needs and budgets.
Importantly to us and our clients, Suttle Shades position themselves as a trusted project collaborator, rather than merely a product supplier. We bring over 50 years experience to every project we work on, specialising in creating custom designed solutions for a wide variety of clientele across both residential and commercial installations.
From our award-winning showroom in Towradgi just north of the Wollongong CBD, customers can browse and compare samples from the wide array of Luxaflex® products we offer which are then measured and supplied to order. Our experienced team provides expert insight and advice for home owners, builders and architects to help them find the right Luxaflex®product for their project.
Suttle Shades History
In 1984, founder and Suttle Shades business owner Tony Suttle began working at Paramount Blinds and Awnings where he built a wealth of experience establishing his understanding of the industry.
Working with leading architects and builders, Tony gained invaluable industry insight and understanding as well as building solid relationships with market-leading suppliers.
When Paramount were acquired by Luxaflex®, Tony’s relationship with the Luxaflex® brand flourished. After this time,Tony decided the time was right to branch out on his own and in 1997, Suttle Shades was established in the northern suburbs of Wollongong.
Since 1997, Tony, along with his wife Rose have built Suttle Shades to become a market-leader in supplying blinds, shutters and awnings to the people of the Illawarra. From Helensburgh to Kiama, Suttle Shades has serviced thousands of residential, commercial and projects with a client-focussed and personable approach to product selection and after-market service.
Between them, Tony and Rose have over 50 years combined industry experience with plenty more to come. Rose works in the Towradgi Showroom and prides herself on her excellent customer service, ability to work through a clients’ needs and after-market support.
While we are extremely proud of our history, we are incredibly excited about the future and working with both our repeat and new customers on their upcoming projects.

Vision & Mission
Every home deserves a finish that reflects the unique tastes and style of the homeowner. By supplying our customers with a wide range of quality blinds, shutters and awnings, Suttle Shades supplies Wollongong and the Illawarra region with elegant solutions to meet their specific project needs and budgets.
We believe that our products should leverage your home’s architectural style with your personal tastes and deliver unique and beautiful results.
From the initial consultation to final installation and reveal, Suttle Shades’ ability to supply from a comprehensive product range will meet any project budget, time frame and design sensibility.
In over 50 years of industry experience, we found Luxaflex® to be the best brand across the board for blinds, shutters and awnings. We were never going to have the Suttle Shades name associated with sub-par or inferior products, so we ensure that as a business we only work exclusively with Luxaflex® and supply our clients with only the best products available.
Being Wollongong’s retailer that exclusively specialise in Luxaflex®, gives us the unique ability to focus on specific project requirements rather than trying to push one brand over another. What this means to our customers is that you can be sure that regardless of needs, we will have the right solution for you.
Our intimate knowledge of the Luxaflex® range and new products coming to market means you can be assured that we are ahead of the curve when it comes to making the right selection for your needs. We have access to new and never before seen ranges and product styles that we can provide to you often before Luxaflex® themselves have had a chance to fully announce them.
