Choosing the perfect conservatory blinds

If you’re looking to enhance both the functional and aesthetic value of your conservatory, installing the right style of blinds can make a big difference. With so many different conservatory blinds available, however, it can be difficult to determine which style is best for your home.

Although your choice of blinds should be based on your personal preferences and decor, you should also consider the distinct features of each style and which would be most beneficial to your conservatory.

In this blog post, we will be looking at the benefits of conservatory blinds, as well as discussing what you need to know when it comes to selecting the most suitable style of blinds for your space.

Benefits of conservatory blinds

Blinds have the ability to transform the look and feel of any room. However, in a room like a conservatory that is filled with mostly windows, they can be especially important for creating a shaded, secure, and stylish space. Before we get into the different kinds of blinds available, let’s take a quick look at some of the benefits that the right set of blinds can bring to your conservatory.

They can help improve energy efficiency and trap heat

Windows are a weak point in your home where heat can escape. With so many windows, your conservatory can be a main source of heat loss. Installing blinds on your conservatory windows improves energy efficiency by providing additional insulation by reducing the chance of heat escaping.

You can incorporate your own style into your conservatory 

You’ll be spending a lot of time in your conservatory during the summer, so it’s understandable that you’ll want to create a comfortable, cosy environment that reflects your aesthetic preferences.  A major advantage of conservatory blinds is that they can add a sense of style with a variety of colours, textures, and patterns available in all options!

They can help to improve the privacy of your conservatory

If you value your privacy at home, conservatory blinds offer a significant advantage. They can be tailored to your windows for the best fit, even in awkwardly shaped glazing, to keep gaps as small as possible. If your garden is overlooked, it will block the view into the room, preventing your neighbours from seeing in.

Different styles of blinds have different advantages in comparison to others, which is something we will further discuss in this blog post.

Blinds we would recommend for your conservatory

As specialists in installing conservatory blinds, we know which blinds work best in conservatories to create a fully functional space. We’ve listed our suggestions below.

Perfect Fit blinds

We highly recommend Perfect Fit blinds if your conservatory has uPVC windows and doors. As they fit perfectly on your windows, they help give your space a neat, streamlined look.

These blinds can be simply slotted into the window or door frame without requiring any drilling or screwing.

As they are tailored to precisely fit your windows with no gaps, they minimise the amount of light coming into the room whilst also providing you with total privacy.

Since they do not have any hanging chains or cords, they are also an inherently safe option, particularly for homes with young children and pets.

Perfect Fit blinds are available in various styles, including roller blinds, pleated blinds, and Venetian blinds. They can also be designed in a variety of colours and patterns, so we are confident you will find a style to complement your home decor.

Venetian blinds

Investing in Venetian blinds could be the perfect way to give your conservatory an elegant, classy appearance.

These blinds have numerous advantages, one of the main ones being the control they provide. The easy-to-use chord mechanism gives you complete control over how much light enters the room, which can be especially useful on sunny days.

These blinds are traditionally made of wood, but they are also available in aluminium, vinyl, timber, and PVC in a variety of designs, colours, and finishes.

Roller blinds

Another popular choice for conservatory windows is roller blinds. These blinds are the epitome of modern design and can offer a clean, simple, and uncluttered feel to your conservatory.

A main advantage of roller conservatory blinds is that they offer effective heat and insulation management, reducing heat build-up during hot summer days and adding extra insulation in the winter.

They can be made from a variety of materials, but the most common are PVC, vinyl, or polyester. They also come in a wide range of designs, patterns, and colours, including vibrant and bold prints, elegant neutrals and natural textures, making it simple to find the ideal style that enhances your conservatory’s decor and suits your aesthetic preferences.

Vertical blinds

If you want to add a touch of style to your conservatory, vertical blinds are a great choice. They are constructed with a series of vertical slats or louvres that can be adjusted to control the amount of light entering the room.

Vertical blinds are extremely effective for large windows and sliding glass doors, making them an ideal addition to a conservatory. The pull cord makes them simple to use and they need little maintenance to stay looking and functioning at their best, making them a practical choice for busy households. They are truly versatile blinds that can be adjusted throughout the day to maintain a sense of space and openness, but can also be closed in the evening to create a cosy intimate feel.

Vertical blinds are available in a range of materials including PVC, fabric, and wood, giving homeowners a wide variety of options to choose from. They also come in an array of designs that are easy to coordinate with your current décor.

We recommend that you avoid using fabric blinds in your conservatory. Fabric blinds can be damaged by the sun, and because conservatories are exposed to high levels of sunlight, they are prone to colour fading, requiring replacement more frequently than other styles.

We would also avoid wider blinds that block off more of the windows than necessary, as these can make a room appear smaller compared to alternative styles.

At Angel Blinds, we understand the importance of choosing the right blinds for your space. This is why we offer a wide range of tailored conservatory blinds in a variety of styles and designs to perfectly complement your decor.

All our blinds are bespoke and made to measure your windows. We even offer free installation to clients in Newcastle and Gateshead to ensure that you get a professional finish to your home.
