Living in Australia, we tend to be pretty lucky with the weather Mother Nature sends our way. That is of course, until sunny summer days turn into scorchers (hello climate change), or mild winter weeks end up wild and woolly. That's why it's important to invest in outdoor blinds that can improve Australian outdoor living! Keep reading to learn more about two of my favourite outdoor products.
Top 2 types of outdoor blinds
With so many different types of outdoor blinds and outdoor awnings available in the market, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. That’s why I’ve created this blog and narrowed the list down to only the best outdoor blinds!
Other outdoor blinds, like bistro blinds or café blinds, tend to flap around when it's windy, but not Windmaster! As a more recent addition to the Half Price Blinds online product range, Windmaster blinds are well-suited to commercial and residential properties where strong winds are often an issue. So, if you live in Perth (one of the windiest cities in the world), these Perth-designed blinds may be exactly what you need.
These outdoor roller blinds are designed to be as sturdy as they come. With features like heavy-duty base rails, channels and locks, this ensures fabric movement and noise are kept to a minimum. Plus, the tightly woven outdoor sunscreen fabric these blinds are made from is also effective in reducing heat. And, it can keep creepy crawlies at bay! Windmaster blinds are available in a wide range of premium powder coat colours. Shades in the product range include classic blacks, earthy brown, creams, modern greys, and even a shade of light pink.
Okay, okay. So, shutters aren’t exactly a type of blind, but they’re a classic choice for any alfresco area. Just like Windmaster blinds, outdoor shutters are a premium window treatment that are a great choice for your home.
If you're looking to create a sense of luxury in your outdoor space, shutters are the way to go. These window treatments can offer complete privacy, plus total light control, however they aren't as effective at blocking the elements as some other outdoor styles, like Windmaster blinds. Outdoor shutters are best suited to entertaining areas that already have some kind of protective barrier, such as a partially enclosed patio or deck.
To operate, simply rotate the shutter louvres. With the louvres completely open, you can enjoy an increased amount of sunlight and airflow. On the other hand, you can close the louvres to create a private and sheltered outdoor room. As an added bonus, our outdoor shutters are also high-tech powder coated. This makes them water-resistant, low-maintenance and extremely durable. Choose from four different stylish shades of black, grey, cream or white.
