Note from Jim: special thanks to Bozzy Blinds who are back on the blog again this week sharing some info on adding blinds to your outdoor living spaces this summer.
Getting new outdoor blinds installed may have been on your list of things to do around the house, but with summer fast approaching, now is the time to do it! And with these great reasons to get outdoor blinds, there are no more excuses to delay getting a protective outdoor shade system.
Protect Your Family From The Sun
The most obvious reason to get outdoor blinds is to protect yourself and your family from the harmful effects of the sun. By installing outdoor blinds, you can create a cool outdoor area, perfect for entertaining during the warm summer months. Sitting outside in the blazing January sun does not appeal to anyone, but being able to have a barbeque outside, enjoy a chilled glass of your favourite tipple and entertain your friends in a shaded area sounds great doesn’t it?
Keep Your Home Cool
Not only do outdoor blinds provide shade and a cool outdoor area, but they also help to keep the interior of your home cool. By creating shade over your windows, the rooms adjacent will also be shaded and therefore remain cooler than windows that are not protected by outdoor blinds. This has a knock on effect on your electricity bills as the rooms are naturally cooler and you may find yourself having to resort less frequently to cranking up the air conditioning. And anything that results in reducing your electricity bills and carbon footprint can only be a good thing!
Create An Attractive Alfresco
Creating an appealing outdoor area makes it so much more inviting to you and your guests. When your alfresco area is kitted out with some stylish outdoor furniture, your café blinds are providing cool shade and the barbeque is all fired up, you won’t want to be anywhere else.
Improve The Value Of Your Home
By installing modern outdoor blinds that complement your home’s look and feel, you will definitely be adding value to your property – and what home owner doesn’t want that? And while you may not be thinking about selling up and moving just yet, it’s an added benefit that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Give Yourself A Lie In On The Weekend
Certain types of outdoor blinds such as window blinds from Bozzy Shade Blinds can be affixed to the exterior wall around a window, creating almost blackout conditions inside the room when the blind is closed. This is great for summer when the sun rises at 5am and if there isn’t sufficient light control in the interior of the room, having an outdoor blind can help you enjoy an extra hour or two in bed before the sun wakes you up.
