How to Choose Outdoor Blinds

In this post, we aim to provide any and all details needed to aid in your decisions of patio/outdoor blinds. You’ll need to settle on a material and operating system that suits your individual needs. 

Understanding Your Own Needs

Before you start looking, try to visualize your dream backyard in your head. Are you looking for a solution that provides security as well? Or something entirely for style and weather protection  The most secure shutters and outdoor blinds might be extremely strong, but won’t let as much light through. If you enjoy the feeling of being semi-indoors with a bit of air flow, perhaps a Louvre Screen might be your best bet. If instead, you are looking for something similar to a cafe blind, that has a mesh wall and allows a lot of light, air flow, and outdoor view through, you should opt instead for a verandah or ZipScreen blind.
