Conservatory Blinds Information

Check out the latest offers on our blinds, click here to request brochureConservatories and Sunrooms are without doubt the ideal methods of adding "light and space to your home". That said "glass enclosures" of this type are not fully complete without some form of sun shading or blinds. In this section we introduce you to some of the alternatives available. To request information on a wide range of quality blinds then please go to our ‘Request a Brochure’ form.



Why have Sunblinds? 
 

1. To reduce glare and heat build up.
Example of Pleated Conservatory Blinds - Sunblinds and Shading
 
2. To provide a higher degree of privacy.
3. To decorate / furnish your conservatory.
4. To reduce the U/V light and the problems with fading carpets/furniture.

Types of Blinds / Shading

1. Pleated Blinds.

2. Roman (Pinoleum) Blinds.
3. Roller (Aluminised fabric) Blinds.
4. DIY Drapes or Shutters.
 
Pleated Blinds are probably the most popular alternative for Roof and Window Blinds today. They are available in many different colours / patterns and are easy to maintain. They can also be "automated" if you like the idea of "remotely" operating the blinds. Pleated blinds can also have special SOLAR finishes for even better performance. This is a feature we strongly recommend.

Roman Blinds which are usually made with "Original French Pinoleum" are arguably the most traditional blinds alternative. Composed of thin strips of woven wood, Pinoleum has been manufactured in France for over 100 years. Its style compliments the traditional conservatory furniture materials of Rattan and Wicker. Roman Blinds can also be "automated" if you like the idea of "remotely" operating the blinds.

Roller Blinds can be produced in many different fabrics but the most popular for Conservatory Blinds feature special SOLAR reflective aluminium backing. The theory is that the sunlight literally "bounces" back of the blinds, giving really effective control over temperature and glare. Whilst aesthetically speaking these blinds are perhaps not the "best looking" alternative in most peoples minds, there is not much doubt that they do provide some of the highest degrees of performance in terms of managing heat build up and glare.

DIY Drapes or Shutters. As an alternative to professionally installed Sunblinds you can consider installing your own drapes using a variety of fabrics. Whilst this may not be as complete a solution as calling in the professionals they can be quite effective at softening the light and cooling the atmosphere. Another alternative is to hang soft muslin at the windows to diffuse the light. Tall timber shutters can be bought at most DIY stores and positioned free standing in order to reduce glare coming through the windows. (Allowing you to watch TV etc) Alternatively smaller shutters can be fixed to the windows externally. (Requires the services of a competent carpenter).
