Have you ever considered that your outdoor spaces are an extension of your home? Your balcony or patio can function just like another room to extend your living area, but if you haven’t got your outdoor spaces configured correctly, they won’t be very inviting, and you won’t get maximum use out of them.

Too much sun, exposure to the weather, or not enough (or uncomfortable) furniture are the main reasons that people’s outdoor spaces gather dust. Setting up your outdoor balcony area correctly can transform the way you think about your home and can create a space that you, your family, and your friends, can enjoy all year round.

Key Features of Outdoor Blinds

Outdoor blinds are the ideal solution to controlling the temperature, light and ambience in your outdoor spaces. Some key features and benefits to incorporating outdoor blinds into your home include:


Extend your living space

Create an outside living room where you can truly enjoy the benefits of your external environment.

Breathe the fresh air, take in a little sun when you want to, watch a thunderstorm, or pull the blinds down and simply enjoy the breeze.

With a good set of outdoor blinds, you can do pretty much anything that you would do inside your house al fresco.

Relax with Privacy

If you live in a suburban or urban area, your outdoor areas might be in the line of sight of your neighbours or passing traffic.

Outdoor blinds give you the privacy you crave so you can comfortably read your morning newspaper in your pyjamas, or on those hot days, relax in a little less.

You can even draw the blinds to create a romantic setting for a dinner for two. Date night at home!

Shield from rain and wind

Outdoor blinds are weather resistant, so are perfectly designed to shield your spaces from rain and wind.

If you have a nasty storm on the way, don’t worry about bringing in your outdoor cushions, you can just draw your blinds and rest assured that your outdoor area will be protected.

Protection from dust and insects

Outdoor areas inevitably accumulate dust, insects and debris over time.

When you aren’t using your outdoor area, pull down your outdoor blinds to protect your furniture, and save loads of time on cleaning and maintenance.

Protection from harmful sun rays

There is no better time of year to enjoy the outdoors than in the summer, but that is also when the sun is at its harshest.

Outdoor blinds allow you to block out the sun at the strongest parts of the day all year round so you can still enjoy the many perks of spending time outdoors.

Better light control

Sun glare and reflection can be annoying when you are trying to enjoy a nice meal with friends and family, or read a book on your back deck.

Outdoor blinds allow you to control the light to suit your needs throughout the day.

Types of Outdoor Blinds Available for Sale


Track-guided outdoor blinds

Track-guided outdoor blind systems are an innovative and streamlined design that are easy to use. These blind systems utilise a spring loaded tracking system that assists the vertical blind in rolling up and down in its tracks. That means you can adjust the blind to whatever height setting you like.

Track-guided blinds are perfect for your outdoor areas because you can adjust them to a full opening when you want to take in full light and air, or can partially close them at different times of day, or during different weather patterns. What’s more: they are super easy to use for all ages, so you don’t need to worry about the family struggling with them, or breaking them, due to incorrect use.

Track-guided blind systems work by using a reinforced spline tape on each end of the roller. This mechanism retracts inside the blind as the blind rolls, and works alongside a lock mechanism that holds the blind closed at the desired height. Your blinds won’t lose traction on their own, and will stay locked in place until you adjust them.
Track-guided blinds come in a range of materials and colours to suit any taste and décor.


Wire/ Cable-guided outdoor blinds

Wire-guided or cable-guided outdoor blinds are another style of blind system that offers functionality, control and style to your outdoor spaces. These outdoor blind systems work with the use of a heavy-duty gearbox that is operated by a crank. The blind has weights at the bottom to ensure that it stays in place, with an optional lock mechanism to secure. They are very easy to use, and to install.

The components of the system are made from stainless steel and aluminium, which makes them resistant to the elements, and suitable for use outdoors. Similar to the track-guided system, wire-guided blinds can be adjusted to any vertical position to block or allow light and air. Due to the durability of the construction, they work with precise movement, and prevent the blind from moving, warping or flapping in the wind.

Cable-guided outdoor blinds have a sleek and modern look, and can add a touch of style to your outdoor spaces. They can be used with or without a head-box, which covers the cranks at the top of the blinds. These systems can also be motorised for extra convenience if you desire.

Track-guided outdoor blinds vs. Wire/ Cable-guided outdoor blinds

You might be wondering which blind system is right for you? And how track-guided and wire or cable-guided blinds compare?

Both systems are easy and intuitive to use, however the track-guided systems are more secured in place because the track runs the whole length of the blind, whereas the wire-guided systems are weighted down and locked in place by an optional lock mechanism at the bottom. If you want the option or motorised control, then the wire-guided system is for you.

Regardless of the system you choose, both will provide light and environment control, and can be further tailored in a range of materials.

Options for outdoor blinds operations mechanism, fabric and color options available

When it comes time to choose your outdoor blinds, there are a huge range of options available. Choose from:

You will find a range of different options, with differing levels of sun and wind protection. Including: Clear blind, Tinted blinds, Opaque blinds and Shade blinds.
