Conservatories are a wonderful addition to a home, providing extra space while making you feel closer to the outside world. The look and feel of your space can be complemented by adding conservatory blinds to your windows. Most people think that conservatories need a special type of blind, this is in-fact untrue.
Benefits of Conservatory Blinds
Privacy with a View
Conservatories allow you to have a room in your house that makes you feel closer to the outside world without having to embrace the typical British elements that you are likely to find out there!
Typically, conservatories have a lot of windows that enhance this feeling, but the added windows may cause you to lose some of your privacy.
While curtains generally block light entirely or not at all, blinds can help you allow light into the room without feeling like you could be watched from the outside.
Temperature Control with Conservatory Blinds
A common complaint about conservatories is that it can be difficult to control their temperature. In the winter months they can lose a lot of heat due to the amount of glass and framing, and in the summer months the same components can cause a ‘greenhouse effect’ that makes the room difficult to relax in.
While not a magic solution, blinds can help with both of these opposite issues. In the colder months they can help trap heat in your home, and in warmer weather they can act as heat reflectors to negate some of the ‘human oven’ effects that most conservatory owners are all too familiar with.
While all blinds can assist with these problems to a degree, our honeycomb style pleated blinds create an insulating layer between the window and the room. This helps slow heat loss in the colder months.
Please note that as stated above, blinds are not the magic wand to your ‘human freezer-stroke-incinerator’ problems #conservatorylife.
Which Conservatory Blinds Should You Choose?
Most types of blind are suitable for conservatories, but there are some features of each that might influence your decision. Here are some of the most popular types. See our full range of blinds here.
Verticals are a popular choice in conservatories due to them being great for large windows. Big windows dressed in vertical blinds give sufficient view of the outside world while allowing plenty of light to filter into the room.
Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect Fit Blinds from Louvolite fit directly on the window frame so they are great for keeping window sills clear. They also offer a screwless solution if you don’t want any small holes in your conservatory.
Venetian blinds are a great choice for a stylish take on privacy and light entry control. These blinds also come in non-fabric materials such as wood and aluminium for increased durability.
Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Aluminium Venetian blinds will add style and beauty to your conservatory, but a key feature of aluminium blinds is that they don’t get bleached or fade due to direct exposure to sunlight. This is dissimilar to roller blinds which are made from fabric.
Pleated blinds are made from fabrics that add texture to your space. Our pleated blinds also make it easy to let in a lot of light during the day when they are open, and dress the windows for maximum privacy in the evening.
Conservatory Roof Blinds
While spending time in your conservatory or sunroom you might experience a glare in the room. Often, this is due to light entering the roof windows. The good news is that using blinds you can solve this issue, while still letting plenty of light into your living space.
