New Conservatory Blinds add the Perfect Finishing TouchWhether you have just finished building a new conservatory or are looking to update the décor of your existing conservatory, you can’t afford to be without conservatory blinds. Here is our quick, handy guide to shopping for conservatory blinds that will help you pick the right ones for your home.
Work and Play
If you’re using your conservatory as an office, it’s important you have blinds fitted to keep the sun out – venetian blinds are a great option as they come in a wide range of colours and finishes to suit all tastes. Even if you’re using your conservatory as a playroom for the kids or just as extra space, keeping the sun off your furniture will prevent fading and damage to fabrics.
What Style Suits you?
It’s possible to find side blinds as well as roof blinds for your conservatory, depending on what you’re looking for. Some of the more popular types of side blinds available include:
• Pleated fabric blinds
• Roller blinds
• Venetian blinds
• Wood venetian blinds
• Vertical blinds
Some companies offer a special frame which fits within your window frame – this allows any type of blind to be fitted into the frame and means that the windows can be opened whilst the blinds stay shut. Depending on the size of your conservatory, certain types of blinds may be more cost effective than others, for example roller or venetian blinds are usually a more affordable choice than fabric blinds, and are easier to clean.
Colours and Finishes
No matter what type of blinds you choose, there are a wide range of colours and finishes available. Wooden venetian blinds come in light and dark woods which can be co-ordinated with your window frames or wooden flooring. Venetian blinds come in a wide range of colours, and some of the new funky, vibrant shades such as turquoise or lime green are ideal for a fun, modern conservatory look when teamed with neutral décor. Remember that the lighter colour the blind, the more light it will let through, so when choosing fabric blinds, a pale shade is often best for conservatories.
It’s possible to find both motorised and manual control roof blinds – both allow you to control the temperature and light in your conservatory. There are even blinds available which offer a reflective coating or absorbent qualities which keep out light and heat, so these are ideal for keeping your conservatory cool in the hot summer months!
