Choosing Conservatory Blinds
Since conservatories have so many windows, choosing conservatory blinds is extremely important. The blinds are a major part of the room's decor and can really help create a strong, beautiful design. Luckily, there are many wonderful blind styles to choose from.
People choose to use blinds in their conservatories for several reasons. First, even with e-glass, windows let in some heat and sunlight. Since a conservatory is almost all windows, even a small amount of heat coming in each window can really increase the room's temperature to an uncomfortable level. In addition, the sun's rays can damage furniture and fade upholstery over time. People also buy blinds for the conservatory to provide privacy from prying eyes. This is especially important for conservatories facing a busy street, as the feeling of being watched will often cause homeowners to end up spending very little time in the room. Additionally, many homeowners use blinds as design elements to help give the room a finished look. Before you shop for conservatory blinds, you may want to find out if your windows come in standard sizes. Often, conservatory windows are custom windows, designed to fit perfectly together. Each window needs to be measured and blinds need to be custom made.
Roman blinds are a classic design that is popular for any room in the house. These blinds come in a variety of colors and fabrics and can really help enhance the room's design. However, they do occasionally have problems with pleats not falling back into the original position.
Pleated blinds are made of cloth or special materials that hold the shape of the original pleats. These blinds are a good choice for the conservatory because they are usually neutral in color and go well with any décor.
For a rich look that goes well with Rattan furniture, you may want to look at wooden blinds. These blinds are available in a wide range of wood finishes or can be purchased with a painted finish. They are very durable and fall into their original position when drawn up and down.
When you think of roller blinds for the conservatory, you may be thinking of the unattractive white vinyl roller blinds that were common several years ago. However, modern roller blinds are available in a wide range of colors and can have attractive decorative trims. These blinds are popular because you can raise and lower them with a quick tug
When they are choosing blinds for the conservatory, many home owners forget to look at roof blinds. However, a conservatory with a glass roof can turn into an oven by mid-afternoon without blinds. These blinds are specially designed to be installed across the roof area of the conservatory. Be sure you look for blinds with an automated control system, so you do not have to manually open and close them.
