What are the Benefits of Fitted Conservatory Blinds?

Posted: 20 Sep 2022

Conservatory blinds are an excellent addition to any conservatory and help keep your conservatory usable all year round. Due to a large amount of glazing within a conservatory, they often face extreme temperatures where heat escapes during the winter and overheats during the summer. So, in order to combat this, we recommend installing blinds. At Specialist Blinds, we have over 25+ years of experience crafting blinds specifically for conservatories and much more. Every blind we make is made-to-measure to ensure neatly fitted conservatory blinds.

Benefits of Fitted Conservatory Blinds

Glare reduction in your Conservatory

Conservatories are often installed to allow for more natural light, however, this natural light can also bring extra glare – both in the summer and winter. Glare can interfere with your device usage such as televisions and smartphones. The sun reflects off your screens and makes it difficult to see what you’re doing or watching. We would often recommend conservatory roof blinds and side blinds. This is because in the summer, the light comes from above and in the winter it comes through the side windows. We offer a variety of modern conservatory blinds you can choose from.

UV Protection

By closing your roof and/or side blinds they can also act as UV protection for your furnishings. Some people with conservatories notice discolouration on their furniture or flooring from the elevated exposure to sunlight year-round. Our blinds reduce the level of UV damage by stopping direct sunlight from entering the room.

Thermal Regulation

As we all know, British weather is unpredictable – such as having record-breaking temperatures  – so blinds can help you regulate the temperature in your conservatory. Our blinds act as a layer of insulation between your room and the outdoors. They form a barrier from the sun’s heat and help you stop your heat from escaping in cooler months. Saving you money in the long run with heating bills or air conditioning! We highly recommend three different ranges of blinds for temperature control. This includes our pure™ pleated blinds, Duette®  thermal blinds and Pinoleum blinds with a solar reflective lining.

Don’t just take our word for it though….

“We are thrilled with the results. The blinds make a big difference to heat loss in the winter and to keeping the heat out in the summer. They look great and are very easy to use. The installation was smooth and straightforward. Follow up customer service has also been very good.” – Ms. Hill, London.

Benefits of Fitted Roof Blinds

We recommend visiting a specialist blind company for conservatory roof blinds as standard blind companies are often only used to rectangular-shaped glazing. At Specialist Blinds, we crafted our pure™ range specifically for conservatories. This means our blinds last longer and withstand the extreme temperatures they face. Additionally, we are able to fit into the smaller angled corners of conservatory ceiling glazing with roof blinds that won’t sag over time.

It’s even easier to control the many blinds found in your conservatory roof with our electric conservatory blind options. We offer remote control blinds, battery-operated blinds and smart blinds which even allow you to control your blinds via your voice!

Gable blinds in a Conservatory

Gable-end conservatories can be tricky to shade, and most sales companies will tell you that gable blinds aren’t necessary because they don’t offer a solution. However, our gable blinds are specifically designed to retract away neatly. We can even cover your gable window with just two triangular window blinds, depending on its size and pitch.

In summary, fitted conservatory blinds have many benefits. But if you’d like to know more then please get in touch for a chat or free quotation appointment!
