External blinds such as shutters, awnings and outdoor roller blinds are fantastic window covers that shield your windows from the outside of your home. Outdoor blinds are designed to keep the heat out while retaining the cool air inside. And they can effectively block the harmful rays of the sun while letting in the breeze.
The top reasons that will make you think of installing outdoor roller blinds for your home are explained below:
Outdoor Blinds Provide Reliable Shade
Installing blinds on the exterior of your windows is even more effective in keeping the sun heat out than installing only internal blinds. If you do not have outdoor blinds, then the sun will hit directly to your window glass and heat it and increase the ambient temperature in the room. Outdoor roller blinds are handy to operate, as you can adjust the height and coverage of the blind as per your requirement. For instance, you can cover the window halfway, obstructing the sun angle, and you can still see outside.
Wide Colour Selection
Outdoor roller blinds are available in diverse colours to suit your colour scheme and style preferences. The classic white offers a clean look and matches with anything. Besides, white reflects sunlight optimally and keep the windows and rooms of your home cooler. Black and other darker shades are also effective at blocking out the light when installed internally or externally, and they are ideal for cinema rooms and bedrooms. Apart from black and white, you will also get outdoor blinds in diverse colours, including green, pastel, blue, maroon and many more.
Cleaning Roller Blinds Is Easy
Generally, outdoor blinds will remain clean for the most part; however, light colours will display dirt and dust more than darker shades. An only light dusting is needed to clean your outdoor blinds using a feather duster or a soft brush. Besides, you can thoroughly clean your blinds with some warm soapy water and a soft cloth. However, ensure to rinse the blinds with clean water later on to refresh them. Both indoor and outdoor roller blinds have low maintenance.
Transforms Your Patio Area
Installing outdoor roller blinds around your patio area will give you excellent shade. When you’re sitting on the patio with your friends while the sun’s heat starts getting hotter, you can lower your outdoor roller blinds for reliable shade and continue to enjoy your outdoors. Besides, you can install roller blinds on your balcony or verandah and control the light and the breeze. Roller blinds look stunning and are practical.
Manual or Motorised Control
Whether you need indoor or outdoor roller blinds, you get the option of manual and motorised operation with remote control. Though the motorised option is pricier, it is handy to operate. Imagine that roller blinds are installed on the outside of your kitchen windows. You’re in the middle of food preparation in your kitchen, and the sun’s rays start flashing in through the windows. Rather than going outdoor to lower the blinds manually, motorised blinds will enable you to press a button on the remote to lower the outdoor blinds. It’s that easy!
