Gorgeous Gardens: Top Tips For Choosing Outdoor Pergola Blinds

By Brian, October 16, 2014

Having a gorgeous garden is important. After all, everyone needs an outdoors space to relax within. When the weather is beautiful, and the sun is beaming down, there is no point sitting indoors. Soaking up the sun is an excellent way to relax. But, having the perfect garden means that you will feel more serene. After all, gardens should be the embodiment of relaxation. Many people’s gardens fail this.

 

There are some ways that you can make your garden a charming place to unwind. Did you know that outdoor blinds can be sought in order to achieve the interior design look, outside? Our interior space shouldn’t be the only place within our homes that benefits from a glamorous look.

Choosing Outdoor Blinds

 

Outdoor blinds can add a sense of privacy to your garden. If you have something of a nosy neighbour, it’s always nice to know that they are not peering in. Outdoor blinds can ensure that you have a greater sense of privacy in your garden.

 

With so much choice, it can be difficult to narrow down what you want for your garden.  The choices are vast. You can also look here for a guide for choosing outdoor pergola blinds.

 

Block Out Shading

 

Block out shading is as the name suggests. These blinds block out the sun and give you a sense of darkness within your pergola. If you live in an area that faces the sun, these can provide practical solutions for shading and privacy matters.

 

See-Through Shades

 

See-through blinds are handy as they allow the sun to peek through. But, you also get air circulated your structure. So, while you are still benefitting from privacy, you can ensure that you have a well-ventilated pergola in your garden.  What is more, you will still be able to admire your beautiful garden and the good weather within it.

 

Care and Maintenance

 

One of the biggest advantages for many people, when they are choosing outdoor blinds, is that they are easy to care for. After all, you don’t want to spend hours wiping down and caring for your blinds. Due to the PVC nature of the blinds, they are hardwearing and practical for your garden. Do not choose timber style shades as these will suffer from inclement weather and will be prone to rotting.

 

Manual Versus Automated

 

With the advances of outdoor blinds, you have a vast array of choice. Some people choose to opt for manual blinds as they are easier to manage. But, if you spend a lot of time in your garden and pergola, it may be worthwhile investing in automatic blind solutions. This allows you to have a product that is not susceptible to damage. A remote control blind is perfect for those that do not have the upper body strength to use a crank or handle. Manual blinds are cheaper and perfect for occasional use. Automated blinds are best suited for more prolonged use as they will not suffer from wear and tear. Of course, the price difference between these is a lot. But, it all depends on your budget and your requirements.
