March 23rd, 2017

Looking for conservatory blinds can be a baffling experience. There are so many different types, colours, materials and suppliers that it’s difficult to know which ones to go for.

It’s best to start by choosing what type of blind you want. Different types are best for different conservatory designs and materials. Having the right blinds for your conservatory can change it from an average-looking to a great-looking area, so it is worth spending time getting it right.

If you’re searching for conservatory blinds but are finding it hard to work out what you want, we can help. Keep reading to learn more about 5 different blind types you could use in your conservatory.

Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds can be fitted in conservatories. They are unobtrusive, practical and are usually found in lots of colours.

Venetian blinds are great for creating privacy without blocking out too much light, unlike Roman and roller blinds. And if you want to remove them altogether you can just fold them up.

If you’re considering buying Venetian blinds for your conservatory, it is a good idea to buy aluminium ones. Wooden and plastic blinds aren’t ideal as they warp easily in high temperature. Aluminium Venetian window blinds are also lightweight so can be fitted in uPVC as well as wooden and plastic conservatories.

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are a particularly decorative kind of blind. They’re produced in lots of different colours and patterns to suit a range of conservatory colour schemes and furnishings.

Roller blinds usually look best if you fit one for each of your conservatory windows. This has the additional benefit that you can put the different blinds at different levels when you need to.

Roman blinds

Roman blinds are also ideal if you want to add colour to your conservatory. Like roller blinds, you can choose colours and designs that coordinate with your conservatory. Roman blinds are great at keeping your conservatory cool and shaded but because they can be quite heavy they’re not usually suitable for uPVC conservatories.

Vertical blinds

Vertical blinds are another option to consider if you want conservatory blinds. They have lots of draw options, which lets you change the light levels in your conservatory easily. They are also fairly light so are great for uPVC as well as wooden and aluminium conservatories.

As they are made of material, vertical blinds can fade, unlike Venetian blinds. However, you can buy replacement blind slats easily so you can smarten up your blinds when you need to.

Pleated blinds

Pleated window blinds can also be fitted in conservatories and are a great choice if you want to create a contemporary look. They have a fixed tension system, which means they are less likely than other blinds to blow about in drafts. They’re made from material and fold up neatly when not in use.

So if you want conservatory blinds, you have several types to pick from. Now you know more about the different kinds of blind around, you should be a bit closer to finding and fitting the ideal blinds for your conservatory.
