Conservatories come in all shapes and sizes, and are fantastic spaces which provide an extra family room. With that in mind, there’s lots of things to consider – it’s not just the case that there’s one blind that’s always right. First of all, establish why you’d like blinds – our handy guide will help.
Blinds to control the temperature
North-facing conservatories can be chilly, while south-facing ones can feel sizzling hot in the summer, so this is an important factor to take into count when choosing conservatory blinds.
If your conservatory is an additional living room rather than just a seasonal extension of the garden, it needs to feel warm and welcoming all year round. Our EcoPleat Pleated blinds have a honeycomb structure which helps keep things cool in the summer and warm in the winter for a temperate space.
Alternatively, our Roman blinds are fully-lined as standard, to create a lovely cosy feel at the window. They not only look and feel snug, but the lining helps to keep things warm too.
Blinds to help with privacy
Large glass rooms are great for views, but if you live in a built up area you might want to keep prying eyes out. Choosing a blind with louvres, such as a Vertical or Venetian blind, will really help to make your space a liveable one.
Blinds to add personality
In a conservatory, wall space is limited, which means things like canvases and art are a little more difficult. That’s why blinds are a great way to add a touch of personality to the room instead – think of your room as a blank canvas.
Tie in blinds with accessories such as cushions, rugs or smaller ornaments for a coordinated look. Or simply make a statement with a striking shade or design. Pleated blinds have a lovely glow at the window, or choose patterned Roller or Roman blinds for a greater choice.
