The conservatory is a great place to kick back, relax and enjoy natural light and heat from the sun on those sunny and pleasant summer mornings and afternoons. But as the season changes and the weather cools down, your conservatory can suddenly turn into an unused space due to the uncomfortable coolness of the temperatures. Sometimes this happens in the middle of the summer too, when the heat becomes so intense that it’s no longer pleasant to sit or recline on that chaise lounge you have in the conservatory.
The ideal solution to this problem is to introduce blinds into the conservatory. Adding blinds to a conservatory or a sunroom makes it versatile and pleasant enough to enjoy throughout the year. In fact, the right blinds can even transform the space so that it adapts to the seasons, thus increasing their usefulness and the value of your home.
The good news is that you can get custom-made blinds that are built according to the measurements and specifications of your conservatory so that they instantly feel natural once you introduce them to the space.
Read on for more ideas on how to choose the right blinds for your conservatory.
Transform the Room
Hanging blinds from the roof and the windows of the conservatory can literally shift the entire look and feel of the space. Blinds allow you to better regulate the temperature in the conservatory so that it stays pleasant no matter how cold or hot it is outside. The blinds will also enable you to reduce sun glare so you can enjoy watching TV or using your smart tablet when you’re in the conservatory. The blinds will also add privacy to the space as well.
The Neatest Possible Fit
Before you get blinds for your conservatory, keep in mind that not all blinds are made equal and some are actually not suitable for this type of space. Ideally, you want the blinds in your conservatory to be a neat and immaculate fit so that they don’t look out of place. The best way to achieve this look would be to get blinds that are specifically designed for conservatories, sunrooms and orangeries.
Most custom-made conservatory blinds come with sun protecting qualities that help to harness the heat in order to keep the space cool during the day and warm at night. You can also get special blinds that are recess fitted into the window frame for a truly snug and custom fit, no matter what shape your conservatory windows are.
A Traditional Style
It’s important to make sure that you get blinds that match the existing atmosphere and theme of your conservatory and if your conservatory has that homely timber design which creates a traditional feel, then you’ll be glad to know that there are blinds to suit this particular theme.
For example, you’ve got pure pinoleum blinds that fit seamlessly into a traditionally designed conservatory, while featuring modern technological features that have become synonymous with modern-day blinds.
The best thing about wooden blinds is that the wooden weave is very effective at cutting out glare and ensuring privacy, and yet it still makes for a very serene, buoyant and airy feel. If you like, you can also get pinoleum blinds with solar lining that will help to retain heat during the summer while keeping the conservatory warm and insulated in winter. Plus, you can get wooden blinds custom made to your individual specifications and preferences.
Motorised blinds are a big trend in the modern days where smart homes and automated cars are becoming the norm. They are ideal for a large space like the conservatory, which tends to require quite a lot of blinds.
One of the benefits of having motorised blinds is that you can literally control them from a remote or a tablet so that you don’t have to go around opening and closing them manually, which can be quite stressful on the arms.
You can also use the remote control to operate all the blinds at the same time, or one by one depending on your preference for the day, and all of this control is available to you at the touch of a button or the swipe of a finger.
Pleated motorised blinds are a great option because they fit neatly into conservatory windows and easily fold and unfold when you need them to.
Whatever you do, make sure that your blinds are incorporated into the conservatory in a way that’s seamless and natural. You want the blinds to have a neat and stylish finish that not only adds to the overall aesthetic of the room but enhances its functionality as well.
You can paint the blinds so that they match the tone of the window frame. Powder coating is usually the best way to go because it’s able to blend seamlessly with the rest of the color palette. In a nutshell, stylish blinds are very inviting and introduce warmth and style to your conservatory that you simply can’t get with bare windows.
Get Your Blinds Fitted By Qualified Experts
Whatever you do, make sure that your conservatory blinds are installed by experienced and skilled experts who will ensure that they look neat and fitted. Ideally, you want a service provider that makes their own blinds instead of a middleman that just imports them, because then you’ll have access to a wider range of options. Plus, custom-made blinds tend to fit better and last longer as they instantly look and feel natural when you incorporate them into the space.
The service provider you choose should also have a team of skilled and salaried employees that will take their time to ensure that the blinds are installed and fitted properly. The result will be complete control of the temperature level in your conservatory, total privacy, and the ability to enjoy your comfortable and stylish conservatory all year long.
