About Som Blinds

Who we are

Som Blinds brings together the best Australian and international fabrics with locally produced components to deliver modern blinds custom made to suit any home or office.

With a dedication to quality craftsmanship, Som Blinds manufacture and install high quality blinds, from motorised blinds to plantation shutters.

Bernie Sombekke founded Som Blinds in 2002 and remains the heart and soul of the company. Since then, Som Blinds (and Bernie) have built a solid reputation for commitment to service, mechanical excellence and quality custom-made blinds.

Drawing on 26 years mechanical experience, Bernie has developed his own motorised systems that allow Som Blinds to deliver innovative blind systems with greater flexibility and control. Bernie knows everything about blinds and it shows in his superior craftsmanship.


Custom made in Melbourne

From our Melbourne factory, we manufacture and install manual and motorised blinds in an extensive range of translucent, blockout and sunscreen fabrics.

Motorised blinds for sheer simplicity

Som Blinds specialise in motorised blinds, bringing ease and convenience to covering large-scale windows. With remote control and programming options, you can change your environment in an instant.

We use Somfy motors with our own components, developed by Som Blinds to deliver sophisticated motorised blinds. Our system can be controlled by most home automation systems or with Somfy remote controls.

Motorised Blinds can be retrofitted to your existing windows or speak to us in the design stage of your new build to ensure the best system for your needs. We are happy to liase with your architect or designer on the best ways to incorporate your motorised window furnishings into your new home.

From design to delivery

Som Blinds is a one-stop shop. Our small team manage every piece of the puzzle, from manufacture to installation. We are experienced at working closely with architects, builders and interior designers as required.

We pride ourselves on our reliability and flexibility, which means our blinds will be ready when we said and, if you need them a little quicker, we will try our best to make it happen.

Plantation Shutters

We have a large range of internal and external Plantation Shutters to suit any budget. All our Plantation Shutters are custom-made to suit all window shapes and sizes. Plantation Shutter blades are available in a variety of sizes and can be colour matched to your paintwork.
