Enhancing Your Conservatory in Scotland: A Guide to Choosing the Perfect Conservatory Blinds

conservatory blinds Haddington, Musselburgh, North Berwick

Conservatories are a popular addition to many homes in Edinburgh and throughout the Lothians. They provide a versatile space that can be used for a variety of purposes and is a popular and affordable way to increase the size of Scottish homes. However, with large amounts of glass in the design, conservatories can often become uncomfortably hot and bright during the summer months and cold in the dark winter months, making it difficult to use the space effectively. Installing blinds in a conservatory is a simple and effective way to regulate the temperature and control the amount of light entering the room. Many people find that they start using their conservatory in the evenings and at night after they have blinds installed because it gives them more privacy. In this article, we will explore the best types of conservatory blinds.

Perfect Fit Blinds

If your conservatory has uPVC windows and doors, our top recommendation is Perfect Fit blinds. A Perfect Fit blind slots into the window or door frame without any need for drilling or screwing which makes them easy and quick to install. Their unique design also means they look great as you cannot see any screws or fittings. Another benefit of Perfect Fit blinds is that the blinds do not flap about in a breeze as they are fitted to the door or window.

Perfect Fit blinds are available as roller blinds, pleated blinds and Venetian blinds in many colours and patterns so we are confident you will find a style and colour that suits your home décor.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are another popular choice for conservatories. They are made from a series of vertical slats or louvres that can be adjusted to control the amount of light entering the room. Vertical blinds are available in a range of materials including PVC, fabric, and wood, giving homeowners a wide variety of options to choose from. They are also easy to clean and maintain, making them a practical choice for busy households.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are more popular in conservatories with wood-framed windows or period homes but as they are available in a wide range of materials they do look fantastic in modern homes too. Roman blinds can add a touch of elegance and luxury to your conservatory. They are made from a single piece of fabric that is gathered in pleats when raised, giving them a classic and timeless appearance.

Roller & Venetian Blinds

Roller blinds and Venetian blinds are the styles that are currently the most popular in East Lothian.  Most people who chose these styles will choose the Perfect Fit version.

In conclusion, at Forth Blinds, we can supply and fit a range of blinds that are suitable for conservatories.
