Buying conservatory blinds in West Lothian? Perhaps you’re confused as to which ones are right for your conservatory, and if that’s the case then perhaps we can help you because today’s blog is all about conservatory blinds and how to choose the ones that are right for you.

Why Do You Have a Conservatory?

No doubt you have your reasons, they serve a variety of different purposes. It’s important therefore, that whatever reason you decided to have one, that you get the most out of them throughout the year. During the summer the conservatory can act as a heat trap and that’s not always a pleasant experience, and in winter, the weather is so cold, no amount of enticement will get you in there.

The solution of course is window blinds for your conservatory windows. They can act as insulation in winter and a safeguard against heat, furniture fade and burning during the summer months. Because conservatories are made largely from glass, it can be difficult to get consistently the right temperature – making it more inviting to go in there both in winter and summer.

Roller Blinds

You can have roller blinds in sections for each windowed section of your conservatory. You can lower and raise them when the sun moves and when you want to control the light. The beauty of roller blinds is that they come in a variety of different fabrics, colours and prices and they’re not difficult to clean either. They’re lightweight and they can be retracted for ease of cleaning without too much difficulty. The only downside is that the fabric fades with the sun, they can also collect dust and insects.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are great for summer and are great for keeping the conservatory cool in summer and warm in winter, almost any fabric is suitable and they can have quite a striking impact on your conservatory windows.

Venetian Aluminium Blinds

Aluminium is probably best here for conservatory windows due to the heat as wooden ones would warp and crack, and the same can be said for PVC, so if venetian blinds is the way forward for you, then aluminium is probably safer. They’re also elegant, chic, easy to clean and come in a variety of colours and patterns.

Vertical Blinds

These types of blind offer good light control and you can even get blackout ones if that’s what you’d prefer. There’s different draw options so you have much more control over light too, and of course more control over privacy from prying eyes. As they age you can also buy individual slats without having to replace the entire blinds.
