We often treat the conservatory as a second living room. We move in a sofa, TV and a table for an alternative place to unwind. Conservatories feel spacious and give us a fantastic view of the garden while staying cosy and dry.
Conservatories serve the whole family. Kids play there, mum and dad take a break and friends are invited in when they pop round for a chat. Your ideal conservatory blinds should be practical while helping to maintain the view.
Because conservatories get hot quick, you will need to think about temperature regulation. By leaving out roof blinds your conservatory quickly becomes a heat trap which then spreads to the rest of the house. This can make summer days uncomfortable. Roof blinds will also help insulate during the cold winter months where your conservatory risks lowering the warmth built up in the rest of the house, adding costs to your heating bill.
Light and glare also need to be considered. A cleverly selected conservatory blind will allow you to control light entering the room.
Privacy is another important factor. Neighbouring windows often look into our conservatoires and so maintaining full privacy is a must. A complete set of fitted blinds will allow you to maintain and control who can see in.
We recommend Panel Blinds for large conservatory windows. They offer a stunning modern look and you can mix and match fabrics to create the ideal blind to complement your space. Our range includes fabrics made to enhance temperature controlling performance, so you stay cool and fresh in the summer while keeping cosy and warm through the winter. They can also be tailor made to fit unique and unusual spaces in your conservatory.
Choose your roof blind carefully. On a bright summer day the glare from the sun will cast a subtle impression of the fabric’s colour into your room. Opt for cream, white or natural to avoid this effect. These colours will also add a bright and cool feel to your conservatory. For something a little warmer, choose a rich red shade.
