Do conservatory blinds reduce glare?

Most blinds can help to reduce glare, but consider that the sun not only moves across the sky but also is lower in the sky during winter – and is higher in the sky during summer. This means that different areas of the conservatory will be affected during different times of the day and year.

To effectively reduce glare in a conservatory you should have both roof and side blinds fitted, ensuring that there are truly minimal gaps and nominal sized fabric cord holes that would otherwise spoil the shading.

Fabric type and colour can also dramatically affect glare, so beware of white or very pale coloured fabrics if you wish to significantly reduce the amount of light entering your conservatory.

In a PVC conservatory we would recommend Eos and pure Pleated Blinds, and in a timber conservatory we would also recommend purePinoleum Blinds with solar reflective lining.

Obviously, the extent to which these benefits affect your conservatory are entirely dependant upon a wide variety of factors that cannot be answered in such a general way, without a great deal of specific information.
