4 Key Benefits of Outdoor Blinds

If you want to expand your living and entertaining spaces, why not bring the indoors outside with outdoor blinds? 

Over the years, outdoor living has certainly taken centre stage when it comes to designing homes. Here in Australia, people love to live outdoors, and extending part of the home is common. However, we’re also known for some spectacular weather events which makes things interesting to say the least. For example, searing heat followed by hail in the Summer is normal, as are the wild storms blowing through. Then Winter brings its own set of challenges, with cold winds making you wish you lived anywhere but here.

Needless to say, this doesn’t contribute to the ideal outdoor environment. Imagine trying to host a dinner party with your guests swatting away all kinds of creepy-crawlies. Or having a gale pour in, soaking your delicious meal. The only way to recover is to steal that bottle of wine and retreat into a corner.

While Aussie outdoor entertaining typically meant ‘Summer barbies’, things are a little different now. New homes, and even commercial buildings now factor in the ‘outdoor’ in their plans. It is seen as an important feature, and has become hugely popular amongst people. Naturally, this calls for the right elements, in order to create the perfect outdoor living area. 

How do we do this? By using outdoor blinds of course. We can help you attain that perfect alfresco space, to use as you please. Our wide range of high-quality outdoor blinds are designed to fit any space, from patios to verandahs and more. Pick your style, colour and design, and you’re good to go.

By now you’re probably curious about how outdoor blinds like our Alpha SRS can benefit you. Here are some things to look forward to.

1. Maximise Usable Space

Let’s face it, finding homes with ample space within your budget is a Herculean task. The market is more competitive than ever, with less options out there. Nowadays, most homes sit on smaller blocks with equally small backyards. So having to turn down a house for the lack of entertainment space, can feel like you’re losing out. Especially if you love everything else about it. 

Which is why sometimes it can help to think outside-the-box. You can maximise usable space with outdoor blinds, creating outdoor ‘rooms’ if you will. They offer complete coverage, comfort and relaxation throughout the year. No matter the weather, your plans won’t be foiled because you’re protected. Plus, you can use the space for a range of occasions over and over again.

If you love hosting yet are struggling to accommodate all the guests you’d like to, we certainly recommend outdoor blinds. After all, who doesn’t love a good excuse to party?

2. Protection From the Elements with Outdoor Blinds

Adding outdoor blinds to your backyard allows you to use your alfresco space through every season. They stand up well against changing weather patterns, and help keep insects at bay. This is especially true in Summer, when bugs of all shapes and sizes feel like they must all turn up together. 

They can also create a shield to protect you from rain and windy conditions as well as the sun. There is nothing worse than settling down with a nice glass of chilled Chardonnay, then being burned to a crisp. Enjoy weekends with family and friends without having to worry about the weather. After all, you work hard and deserve every minute of it.

3. Increase Privacy with Outdoor Blinds

Are outdoor blinds good for your home privacy?

Ah it’s Nosey-Josie peeping over the fence again. God knows what she wants this time around, but you don’t want to know. What you do want, is to ensure she doesn’t have a bird’s eye view. 

When you’re closer to your neighbours than you’d like, this is a common problem. And let’s face it, keeping a good relationship with them is important. So as much as you’d like to tell Nosey-Josie off, you’re going to have to take the high road. That road being outdoor blinds of course.

Why get into an altercation when you can be slicker than James Bond? Outdoor blinds can help increase privacy, so you can relax in peace. Feel safe and sheltered in your homemade private retreat, without having to constantly look over your shoulder.

4. Aesthetics and Usage

A home should be functional and practical of course, but you also want it to look good. So won’t roller shutters take that way?

Not quite. Maybe the roller shutters of yore were an eyesore, but today they’re works of art. The use of modern-day technology has made it possible for us to mould metals better, and integrate colours. Overall, roller shutters sport a clean, minimal look, so they give your home a modern twist. We’re especially proud of our shutters for being both practical and good-looking. You have a very high chance of finding something that fits just right.

Then of course, we need to think about operation and usage. The thought of having to manually raise and lower your shutters is probably not very appealing. Which is why fortunately they come with motorisation options. This means that you can operate from anywhere in the house, with a remote control. Some of these options even include solar-power.

All our roller shutters have manual operation built into them, even if they’re motorised. This is to ensure that no matter what happens, you can still operate them without hassle.

5. Adds Value to Your Home

Outdoor blinds are able to add value to your home by satisfying both functionality and aesthetics. Not only do they look a million bucks, they serve a very important purpose by creating extra usable space. Potential homebuyers see such features as valuable, so if you plan to sell at some stage, it’s certainly a plus. 

By enhancing the look and feel of your home, outdoor blinds are able to add life to it. Instead of letting precious space go to waste, you can make utmost use of it. This in turn means your home is used to its full potential.
