Well the festive season is upon us again and it seems to be here just in the nick of time. I know that traditionally Christmas means snow, etc but I do think that we are lucky in Oz to have warm, sunny weather over Christmas instead. Of course, summer can get very hot and there could be any number of insects buzzing around. It is not always the best idea to sit out on the lawn. A good alternative is to make use of your patio.
If you have an open patio and feel that you need some protection from the sun or insects during summer; or some protection from the wind during winter, outdoor patio blinds could be the perfect solution. With the wide variety of choices available, you can find blinds that will be perfect for your specific needs.
You can get blinds that filter out the harmful UV radiation but still allow you to see outside. You can still feel as though you are sitting in your garden but will not have to worry about the sun. These are fabric blinds and have the added advantage of keeping the bugs out. You could consider wooden Venetian blinds that slide shut in order to almost completely block out the sun and give a high level of privacy. Bear in mind though, that these are less effective at keeping out insects.
The most practical option for a patio is probably a roller screen. You are, after all, not going to use the screen fulltime and so should be able to get it out of the way when it is not in use. A roller screen can simply be rolled up and is thus out of sight. It can also come in a range of colours and finishes meaning that it can easily fit in to any decor style.
Of course, few people have considered blinds for their patio and so it would be quite forgivable if they had no idea where to look. The best place, in my opinion, is to get blinds is off the internet. It is very much a fact that you get some great deals on the internet. (It makes sense that the stores online can charge less their overheads are a lot lower and it’s an on-demand business , you don’t have to keep tons of stock in reserve and end up wasting money on stocks that are not moving. To find blinds online, run a simple Google search.
At the end of the day, blinds on your patio will not only make a stunning addition to your home but will also allow you to spend a lot more time outdoors, it really is the best of both worlds.
