It’s a good idea to begin by deciding what type of blind you want. Different styles are best for different conservatory styles and materials. Fitting the right blinds for your conservatory can transform it from an average-looking to a great-looking space, so it is worth investing the time to get it right.
If you’re looking for conservatory blinds but are finding it difficult to work out what style you want, we can help. Keep reading to find out more about 5 different blind types you could fit in your conservatory.
You can fit Venetian blinds in a conservatory. They are low-key, useful and tend to be available in a number of neutral shades.
Venetian blinds are good for creating privacy without blocking out too much light, unlike Roman and roller blinds. And when you want to do without your blinds altogether you can simply fold them up.
If you’re thinking of buying Venetian blinds for your conservatory, it is best to get aluminium ones. Wooden and plastic blinds aren’t ideal as they warp easily in high temperature. Aluminium Venetian blinds are also lightweight so they’re suitable for uPVC as well as wooden and plastic conservatories.
Roller blinds are one of the most decorative styles of blind. They’re available in several different shades and patterns to coordinate with the style in colour scheme of your conservatory.
Roller blinds often look best if you fit one for each of your conservatory windows. This has the extra advantage that you can put the different blinds at different levels to suit you.
Roman blinds are also a good choice if you want to get some colour into your conservatory. Like roller blinds, you can pick colours or designs that look good with the furniture and fittings in your conservatory. Roman blinds are great if you want to keep your conservatory cool and shaded but because they can be quite heavy they are not always suitable for uPVC conservatories.
Vertical blinds are another option to think about if you’re after conservatory blinds. One of their benefits is that they have numerous draw options, which lets you change the light levels in your conservatory easily. They are also pretty light so are ideal for uPVC conservatories as well as wood and aluminium ones.
As they are made of material, vertical blinds are susceptible to fading, unlike Venetian window blinds. However, you can purchase replacement blind slats very easily, so you can spruce up your blinds when you need to.
Pleated blinds are also suitable for conservatories and are ideal if you want a contemporary look. They work on a fixed tension system, which means they are less likely to flap around in the wind than other sorts of blind. They’re made out of material and fold away compactly when not in use.
So if you’re searching for conservatory blinds, you have a variety of designs to pick from. Now you know more about the different types of blind available, you should be one step nearer to finding and fitting the perfect blinds for your conservatory.
