The Benefits Of Outdoor Blinds

Australia is a country blessed with beautiful weather – our winters are mild and our summers are long, hot and sunny – perfect for taking advantage of our stunning beaches! It’s no shock then that outdoor entertaining is seen as a way of life here. From barbeques to afternoons by the pool, or even cozy evenings next to the heater, Australians love to be outside year-round.

This love of the outdoors has made alfresco incredibly popular, and this is where outdoor blinds can offer enormous benefits.

The Blinds Gallery we stock a huge selection of outdoor blinds in a range of fabrics, sizes and finishes to suit different tastes and budgets. They’re a great option for improving the comfort and convenience of your space, and for ensuring that you can enjoy the great outdoors in any season. Here are a few reasons why you should consider adding outdoor blinds to your home!

Maximise usable space

When the weather hits extremes, many of us head inside. Unfortunately this means that our patios and alfresco spaces often sit untouched for most of winter and the hottest days of summer. Outdoor blinds are a great way to improve the usability of your outdoor areas as they provide cover and protection from the elements and can help to enclose the area, making it feel much more like an extension of your home.

Protection from the elements

One of the best benefits of outdoor blinds is that they offer great protection from the weather. Avoid the heat, wind, rain and even the sun’s harmful UV rays with a set of outdoor blinds. Affordable cafe blinds are a popular choice for outdoor spaces because they come in a range of materials, including sunscreen fabrics capable of providing great protection from the sun and wind, and PVC which offers full weather protection. Cafes blinds are great for both residential and commercial use thanks to their no-fuss installation and versatile design – they can easily be customised to suit almost any outdoor space.

Ziptrak blinds are another option that you might consider. With their child-safe design, they’re the logical choice for families. A wide variety of fabrics and finishes means they can be tweaked to suit almost any home’s exterior. Wire guided roller blinds and outdoor roller blinds offer similar benefits.

Keep flies and mosquitoes away

A great benefit of enclosing your outdoor space is that it offers protection from outdoor pests like flies and mosquitoes and keeps them away from your home. Systems that reach the floor, like Ziptrak blinds or cafe blinds, are best for keeping pests at bay, as they fully seal off the entry into your house when closed.

Increase privacy

Outdoor blinds can improve the privacy of your home. Opt for a dark mesh sunscreen fabric or a block-out fabric for your outdoor blinds to keep prying eyes away. This can be a great way to let the sun in without having the inside of your home exposed to the street.

Improve energy efficiency

Adding outdoor blinds to the exterior of your home can provide shade to your windows and help to prevent heat from getting into your home. This can go a long way towards reducing your energy bill as it keeps your home cooler.

Adds value to your home

I write this email in appreciation of the excellent service provided to me on three separate occasions when I have purchased blinds from The Blinds Gallery for our house. I have purchased approximately forty blinds, both manually and electronically controlled and have found the process quite seamless.
On each occasion when dealing with the staff I have received excellent service. The sales team have been very knowledgeable regarding the product they are selling.
Your front of house Hayley does her job to perfection and does an excellent job in promoting your brand. John, from a service and a technical side of the business does a great job and is very knowledgeable with the products and procedures. Nothing was too much trouble.
Nick. He is an excellent trades person and is an excellent example of the quality that The Blinds Gallery offers. I have recommended The Blinds Gallery to several friends and family as we have big windows where the up/down blinds are required.
Hayley and John, please pass on my sincere thanks to Nick for his excellent trades skills and forward this email to the appropriate people.

I have just had the guys leave from the installation of my new curtains. I couldn’t jump on here quick enough and let you know what an amazing experience we have had and they look fantastic!

Right from the moment of meeting you Ferne, helping pick out the curtains and being patient with the decision making of two girls who can’t make up their mind, to the two men who came to install them. They were amazing, there was no mess left, they were polite and did such a great job at the install.

We will definitely be back to finish the rest of the house soon!
Thank you again!

We have found the quality and value far superior to any other blinds company.

Also, it has been a pleasure dealing with your friendly and professional staff.

I wish to say how delighted I am with the blinds that you recently made and installed for me. I must also mention that your prices were excellent compared to other quotes I received.

Janine - Jolimont

I would just like to say what wonderful customer service Michelle gave me when I came into the display showroom. I had a good idea of what I wanted but Michelle made suggestions and recommendations and showed me products I wasn't familiar with.

Amanda - Aveley

I have found your blinds give good value for price, and the installers are very pleasant and helpful. I wanted to let you know what a good experience dealing with your company has been.

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for our amazing shutters they look amazing and really finish the house off. Lee was great to - very thorough and clean. Customer service was of very high standard and i would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks again.

Dea - Gwelup

Just to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the quoting, measuring, manufacture and instillation of internal shutters. We had a few hiccoughs upstairs but these problems were addressed and resolved. Downstairs went like clockwork.  Manufacturing time was much less and instillation was quick, clean and efficient thanks to Lee and Say who were like a well oiled machine. Great teamwork. Absolutely love the product and due to the efficiencies and the manner in which problems were handled, I would have no hesitation in recommending The Blinds Gallery.
