Conservatories are a great way to increase your living space for relatively low hassle and considerably lower cost than a brick and mortar extension. These simple structures look beautiful, and give you a great place to sit and enjoy your garden all year round. There’s nothing better really! For some people though, the thought of decorating their new conservatory can be a bit problematic. There’s quite a lot of glass in there, now you come to think about it.
Without conservatory blinds you can end up having to deal with very little climate control. The sun will beam in, and for all intents and purposes you’ll be sitting in an expensive greenhouse. In the winter there’s a lot of space for heat to escape through. Not exactly ideal now.
It can get both hot and cold in these spaces if you don’t have the right window dressings. A simple blind will help maintain the ambient room temperature. That it, if it’s warm inside and cold out, the warm will stay inside. If it’s hot outside but it hasn’t warmed up indoors, then conservatory blinds will prevent it getting unbearably warm and stick in there, which means you’ll be able to use the space all year round, come rain or shine. Any little steps which help improve your homes insulation will even help you save money in the winter months, as any heat loss can lead to expensive energy bills.
Most conservatories are found in back gardens, but if yours happens to be overlooked you’re basically just sitting a glass box for people to watch. You’ve become living television. A simple blind is all it takes to shut out the outside world, and make your space feel infinitely more like a room. Remember, if you can see your neighbours window in the daytime, they will be able to see you at night when you put the lights on – unless you close those conservatory blinds.
Conservatory blinds give you a lot more control than you might first consider. Now, we know what you’re thinking. You don’t want to lose those clean lines of the lovely glass structure. You don’t have to. Well fitted blinds can be made to more or completely disappear against the frame when they’re fully opened. This is because they’re made of very delicate fabrics which folds away to virtually nothing, and as a result your guest are very unlikely to spot them unless you tell them that the blinds are there.
