Choose the best blinds for your conservatory


Conservatories – a great way to extend the living space in your home and at the same time enjoy more natural sunlight. Whether you’re using your conservatory as a dining area or as a place for relaxation, it definitely is a fantastic and valuable addition to your home.

However, with all that sunlight streaming in from every angle, you need a way to control it, especially if you enjoy having breakfast in your conservatory without blinding morning light. The best way to do that is to install blinds and limit the light accordingly. But how do you choose the right blinds for your conservatory?

Here are the main types of conservatory blinds

  • Roller blinds

    This type of conservatory blinds are great, they are simple, very effective and provide the ambience and privacy that you require. When they’re pulled down, they blend beautifully with the window frame allowing the light to come through perfectly. A made to measure service is available as well as plenty of fabrics, styles and designs to choose from.

  • Pleated blinds

    A very good alternative to roller blinds, pleated blinds provide a great addition to the room. If you’d like to make a feature of your blinds, and not use them simply as a necessity, pleated blinds are a great option. Even though they can take a bit more window space, this can be an advantage as “they’re always on show”!

  • Roman blinds

    These blinds contain a horizontal rail and a section of fabric which can be pulled down manually. Roman blinds are available in a wide range of colours, patterns and designs. In this case, it is extremely easy to choose the blinds that work with your existing conservatory design.

  • Venetian blinds

    This type of blinds is normally made of metal or wood and they’re a very good option if you want to be able to control the amount of light that comes into your conservatory.

Choose the best blind material

Choosing the right material depends on what exactly you want to achieve with your conservatory. Do you want more privacy without reducing the light or you’d like to keep your conservatory cooler when the sun is blazing down? In the first case, a thinner material would be great to obscure the view from the outside. If you’d like a cooler space, you need to choose special thermal fabrics for heat control.
