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.
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.

What our customers say
Suttle Shades is one of the most professional and efficient businesses that I have dealt with here in the Illawarra region. Both Tony and his staff provide exceptional service that is both prompt and friendly. Highly recommended.
Mr & Mrs Baker
It's one of the best products we have purchased for our home.
The installation of "Sunscreen Blinds" to our loungeroom/dining and kitchen has improved our lifestyle immensely. We have an ocean view, and while it is beautiful, the glare factor is extreme. We needed a window covering that would reduce glard and heat but not block out our view. On hearing about "Sunscreen Blinds" and after consultation with Mr Suttle we purchased the blinds. We are very happy with the product, it delivers everything that it promises. The temperature of our home has reduced considerably and we can enjoy the view in the early parts of the day without wearing sunglassed. Reduction of the UV light will also reduce damage to furniture and fabrics. I recommend "Sunscreen Blinds" - its one of the best products we have purchased for our home.
Tony Suttle installed our Luxaflex Duettes quickly, cheerfully and efficiently.
Our supplier Tony Suttle installed our Luxaflex Duettes quickly, cheerfully and efficiently and we recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking at purchasing these blinds

Tony’s service was excellent. His workmanship in installing the blinds was second to none. We were so happy with the results, they exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending Suttle Shades to any other person.
The service that Tony and Rose provide is unsurpassed in professionalism, honesty and friendliness.

Best shades in Wollongong!
Best shades in Wollongong. Their products live right up to their name. Show them a window that allows too much light to filter in and these guys will fit it with the exceptional means to bring shade... at will! With but the pulling of a cord. And of course they do this with a smile and a laugh. Could not recommend more!

We couldn’t be happier with the outcome that we received with the products and installation of our blinds/shutters
We engaged Suttle Shades to advise on and install blinds/shutters in our new home. Although we had some idea on what we were after Tony’s expertise and assistance was invaluable in providing us with options that would best suit our home. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome that we received with the products and installation of our blinds/shutters. It has completed the inside of our home beyond our expectations. A sincere thank you to Tony & Rose for their exceptional service and expertise, we will highly recommend them to our family & friends.
I’m extremely happy with the new blinds, they look immaculate and work smoothly.
Dear Tony, I just thought I would take a moment to let you know that I’m extremely happy with the new blinds, they look immaculate and work smoothly. I also thought I would let you know that I really appreciate your after installation customer service, the minor issue that did occur was quickly amended and you and the team are to be commended for your customer service. I have no hesitation recommending Suttle Shades to any future customers. Thanks heaps!
