It’s the perfect time to think about installing outdoor blinds in your back garden with winter at our doorstep. Outdoor blinds let you enjoy your garden or alfresco area all year round, creating an extra entertaining space in your home.

It can be tricky to choose the right kind of outdoor blinds with many types and styles available. So, read on to learn more about picking the right style blind for you.


Why install outdoor blinds?

The events of 2020 showed us just how important it is to have usable outdoor space where we can relax, unwind and escape the house. Spending time outside is hugely beneficial to overall well-being. Having a shaded and protected outdoor area that’s comfortable all year round allows you to spend as much time outside as you need.


What type of outdoor blind is right for you?

Start by thinking about how you use your outdoor area.

  • Do you have a fantastic view from your back garden in Perth and want to sit outside all year? Consider installing clear or tinted cafe blinds.
  • Do you want to protect yourself from the sun and create a privacy screen?

Consider one of our rope and pulley blinds. 

  • Do you want complete sun protection and unrivalled privacy?

Choose from our range of Ziptrak blinds. 


Motorised or manual?

Deciding between manual or motorised comes down to personal preference as there are pros and cons to each. Most importantly, your outdoor blinds or awnings should be quick and easy to operate. Manually working with ropes and pulleys can be frustrating for those with poor grip strength. Many types of blinds can be motorised allowing you to open and close them at the touch of a button. 


Fabric Types

Transparent PVC café blinds provide excellent protection from the wind and rain without blocking your view.

Mesh is a versatile material available in a range of colours and grades, perfect for blocking out the harsh summer sun and keep you safe from the cold winter wind and rain.

Canvas offers excellent UV protection due to its complete sun block out, creating a weather-safe outdoor room. However, you may need to invest in outdoor lighting to use when the blinds are closed.
