Patio Blinds: What Are They?

by | Sep 27, 2018 | Screen Store

You may have heard them in passing or seen them without realising it, but most homeowners don’t know what patio blinds are. Some call them outdoor blinds, but they are the same regardless of what you call them. For those who enjoy their outdoor spaces and want to add functionality or make their outdoor space more entertainment-friendly, these blinds work perfectly. Of course, they’re designed to look great, but they also help you stay more comfortable and provide some privacy.

Patio blinds protect you from the elements; you can pull them down when the sunlight is at its worst or when the rain pours down. If you also use patio roofing, you can protect yourself even more. They can also shade the wind and shade the area, allowing you to feel comfortable regardless of the weather. Plus, if the patio is off the kitchen area, the shade can also cool the indoor space better, allowing you to use less energy to cool the home.

If that weren’t enough, they’re highly versatile, and you can customise everything to meet your particular needs. You can choose between a variety of colours and styles, but you can also determine the sizing, length they go, and much more.

At SP Screens, they’ve got two options available when it comes to patio blinds. You can choose roller blinds or shutters, both of which work well with almost any setting and home style. The blinds are made of fabric and keep out sunlight and some inclement weather. The rollers are sturdier and made of aluminium, which means they’re much more durable and can provide more sound barrier and protection from the elements. Either way, you have their many years of experience backing their abilities and can always ask them questions or advice.
