Conservatory Sun Blinds – What are the benefits?

Posted: 22 Sep 2022

Shading your conservatory has many benefits as they are particularly affected by the weather due to their glazing. Depending on how sunny or cold it is, the temperature can shift drastically. Additionally, the hot weather can cause your conservatory to feel like a greenhouse, with the sun coming from all sides, all day and night. The non-stop sun can also cause glare on your surfaces and devices making them hard to see and use. We recommend conservatory sun blinds to help combat these common conservatory issues.

Controlling the temperature in your Conservatory with Sun Blinds

Conservatory sun blinds are a great addition to your conservatory when it comes to controlling the temperature. By installing conservatory roof blinds, our blinds form a barrier against the sun’s heat coming from above by reflecting it back out of your conservatory. On the other hand, in the winter months that blind ‘barrier’ acts as a layer of insulation and traps your heat from escaping. We recommend our Duette® Thermal Blinds if you are looking for thermal regulation – due to their unique honeycomb construction.

Protecting your Conservatory from the Sun’s glare with Blinds

With a lot of natural light comes the risk of glare. Many people nowadays use their conservatories as a home office, living room or dining area. So, the majority of the time you will find yourself using a television, phone or smart device. Glare can reflect off of those screens making them difficult to use or see. To control the many blinds in your conservatory, customers typically install automated blinds and our pure™ Remote Control blinds are our most popular in conservatories.

We recommend installing roof and side blinds onto your conservatory to have maximum control over your shading as well as glare. If don’t wish to block out your entire view, you can choose semi-transparent blinds or pinoleum blinds for a traditional dappled shading. Our pure™ pinoleum blinds are also effective for thermal regulation as they come with an optional solar lining.

How Sun Blinds can protect your Conservatory furniture

As furniture in conservatories face a lot more direct sunlight daily and year-round, it can begin to fade. Not only your furniture, but general furnishings and floorings can also suffer from UV damage and sun-bleaching. To combat this and ensure your furniture stays looking new for much longer, we would recommend installing modern conservatory blinds that can protect your home. We recommend top-to-bottom shading, however some people opt for just roof blinds. Our pure™ pleated blinds will also stay looking new for longer – because they are designed specifically for conservatory usage.

At Specialist Blinds we have over 25+ years of crafting conservatory blinds and our other specialities include gable blinds, bifold door blinds and lantern roof blinds. Gable blinds are often used for gable-end conservatories where standard companies often leave the window uncovered.
