3 Reasons to Install Verandah Blinds

If you like to sit out on your verandah or to use it as an outdoor eating space, then you may want to think about installing outdoor blinds around it. This helps you make the most of the space and the time you spend in it.

What are the advantages of installing verandah blinds? 

1. Maximise Your Time Outdoors

Spending time outdoors is a good way to relax; fresh air keeps you happy and healthy. However, the weather can sometimes prevent you from going outdoors when you'd like to. For example, if the weather is really sunny and hot, then you might stay indoors to get some shade and cool. Sitting on your verandah won't be much fun if you overheat. The same principle applies if the weather turns cool or a little windy. If you feel cold, you won't want to sit outdoors as much.

Outdoor blinds make your verandah a more viable space. You can pull the blinds down if it is sunny to create a cool space. They also block out breezes and keep the cold out so that you can sit on your verandah more often and for longer.

2. Maintain Some Privacy

If your verandah overlooks your street, then you may feel like you're putting on a show for the outside world when you use the space. The people who live opposite your home can see you from their windows, and people walking or driving by might goggle at you to see what you are doing.

It can be hard to kick back and relax if you feel you're being watched all the time. However, if you install verandah blinds, you shut yourself off from clear view. Light still comes in through your blinds, but you will feel more hidden away. You don't have to use a blackout material — although you can if you want — even a sheer blind will boost your privacy enough to help you forget about the outside world.

3. Keep Your Home Cooler

Verandah blinds don't go on the front of your home; they sit along the frame of your verandah. However, even from there, they can have a positive influence on your indoor temperature in hotter weather. If your verandah doesn't have blinds, then the sun will beat down through it to come in through your windows and walls. Your home may get hot pretty quickly. If you have direct sunlight coming through a window every day, your carpets and furniture may fade.

If you have outdoor blinds on your verandah, then they will block out some of this heat and its harmful rays, and your home will feel cooler.
