Coming off the back of one of our hottest summers ever, you may have been using your conservatory a little more than usual.
These extra rooms in our homes are often used as home offices, dining rooms, play rooms or as somewhere to escape and get a little bit of alone time.
Due to their build and the number of open windows, conservatories can become very hot with the sun shining directly through the windows all day, trapping heat and light inside.
As we're about to hit a little more late September sun, we thought we'd run down 5 window blind types that are ideal for you to get the most out of your conservatory.
Vertical blinds are ideal for conservatories due the ability to easily open and close the window blind slats, therefore controlling heat, light and privacy. Vertical blinds are great for large, floor to ceiling windows due to design, looking effortlessly stylish in these areas.
They are also an extremely affordable window blind which means if you have a large conservatory or outside space, you can add some new life even if you're on a budget.
Perfect Fit blinds, are in our opinion the number 1 blind for conservatories. This specialist window blind clips into the beading of uPVC windows, leaving a seamless, manufactured finish to the windows and blinds. They require no screwing or drilling into your uPVC which means no mess and no voided warranties if you have a relatively new conservatory.
Roller blinds are a popular, simple but effective window blind suited to pretty every room and window around the home.
If you have large runs of windows in a conservatory, you can easily cover these with single window blinds or opt for several blinds across the space. This will give you the ability to easily control areas with the most sunlight shining through. You can also apply blackout and thermal lining to roller blinds to help you control heat and therefore reducing the cost of heating bills in the winter too.
Roman blinds may be a slightly different choice of blind for a conservatory but we feel that the softness of the folded roman blind fabrics really helps to take the edge off of a conservatory and create a relaxed, elegant room.
The roman blind might be seen as more of a dress blind rather than a strictly functional blind. If you're opting to have roman blinds that behave as more of a pelmet than a full use blind, you can order these is shorter lengths to create the look and feel of the blind without paying for material that will never be pulled down.
Window blinds such aluminium venetian blinds and faux wooden blinds are ideal for conservatories. This is due to the material used to make these blinds not suffering from warping or fading over time. The ability to control the angle of the slats gives you full control over lighting and privacy as you see fit.
As with roller blinds, you can choose to cover a large surface area or split the blinds up if you want further control of having your blinds fully pulled up or down, depending on which areas have large spots of sunlight throughout the day.
