Conservatory Blinds in Macclesfield
Summer is only a few months away and families will start to use their conservatory more frequent. But looking back to last year, was your conservatory too hot to sit in for long periods? Or does it just need brightening up?
Jennys Blinds in Macclesfield have many solutions to tackle this problem.
What Blinds can I have?
In a conservatory, you can have any type of sun blinds around the side windows but for the roof you really only have the choice of pleated blinds. I will now describe the different type of conservatory window blinds in more detail.
Vertical blinds are one of the most popular choices for conservatory window blinds. With a huge range of colours / shades and the availability of different properties of fabric such as ‘heat and light reflective’ or ‘fully machine washable’ there are plenty of options. Also with the mechanics of a vertical blind, you can have the blinds in any position you want to control the light entering the conservatory. Fabrics can also be the same in Pleated blinds so that the side and roof blinds match.
Roller blinds are very simple and effective window blinds. They are operated on a side chain mechanism which makes the control very easy. The fabric choices are the same as vertical blinds although there are a few more fabrics you can choose from.
Pleated blinds are the choice for you if you want the roof blinds and the side blinds to be exactly the same. The side blinds can be operated in two ways. The first option is to have the pleated blinds free hanging. This is when the blind is free to move when it is fully down. The second option is to have the blind tensioned. This is when there is a bottom bar fixed to the window and the blind is operated on guide wires.
Venetian blinds are available in both aluminium or wood, These window blinds are a good option to control the light. The horizontal slats can be positioned so that the sunlight is blocked out.
Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect Fit Blinds look really stylish in a conservatory. With no drilling needed, the frame is fitted to the window by L-shaped brackets that slip behind the black seal of the window.
So you have choices of either roller, pleated or venetian blinds in the perfect fit system.
As you can see there are many options to conservatory blinds. Hopefully this has given you a brief insight into what window blinds you can use to make your conservatory a gorgeous living space.
