A conservatory (or an orangery, we’re not fussy) can look a whole lot better with the right conservatory blinds. If you pick the wrong type, or ill-fitting window dressings though, your sun room will suffer for it. More and more people are opting to have a little summery escape as they provide a quick and simple solution to an extension. If you’ve got a beautiful garden they are the perfect way of letting the outside in.
There’s a lot of choice out there, and asking yourself about what you want from your window dressings can help. Many are more suitable to windows than roofs, while others will work for roofs and not windows (or even for both). Cost is likely to come into play as well, but buying a quality product will mean that you need to replace less frequently, giving you substantially better value in the long run.
Conservatory blinds are available to suit all tastes, and as they often need to be made to measure due to window size variation, you will definitely be able to find the right styles for you. Whether you want something traditional or contemporary, simple or pattern there will be the right option available for you. Don’t feel like you should be limited by what you’ve seen in conservatories in the past; there’s no reason why you can’t be a little different.
A conservatory blind isn’t just an aesthetic object, they serve some very practical purposes as well. Because these rooms (and we’re talking orangeries as well) have huge panels of glass, temperatures can be extreme. In the summer it might feel like you’re sitting in a greenhouse on occasion and in the winter months you’re going to want all the insulation you can get because it’s likely to get ever so chilly in there. With solar reflective and thermally insulated fabrics available, you should be able to substantially alleviate this problem with just some simple blinds. Who needs modern technology?!
If you keep your television or have your study in this room, the sunlight can be a problem at times. Glare will be hitting your screen and seemingly coming from all angles. A simple, light coloured blind will be able to temper the light somewhat without blocking it out altogether. At night time, privacy might also be an issue (especially if you’re keeping valuables in there). Shut all the blinds and everything will be well hidden from prying eyes. conservatory roof panels
