Things To Consider When Purchasing Outdoor Blinds And Shades

Choosing Awnings

Yes, it’s that time of year again!  We love warm days, entertaining outdoors and balmy summer evenings.  There’s just one catch – as the summer sun beats down on your patio area, it becomes almost too hot to enjoy your barbecue!  And it pours onto your windows, warming up your house, while you suffer the heat inside…
Welcome outdoor blinds and shades!  Thankfully, there’s a simple yet effective solution to your problem – a solution that many Australians across the country are enjoying.  In fact, outdoor blinds and shades should really be fitted to every Australian home – a measure to help climate control inside and to protect you and your family from the harmful UV rays that we simply can’t escape.

Outdoor blinds and shades are an investment that you’ll never regret.  However, because it does involve a bit of capital outlay, you want to make sure you are getting exactly what you need.  Take your time choosing blinds – here are some things to consider:

What do you want your blinds to achieve?

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question because individual needs and expectations are many and varied.  Obviously, your blinds or shades need to protect your windows or outdoor areas from the hot sunshine and glare, but do you also require protection from the elements during winter?  Do your blinds/shades need to be retractable so that you can enjoy the benefits of shade during summer, but allow for maximum sunshine during winter?


Take time to choose a design and colour scheme that will compliment your home and garden. Maybe you want your addition to be as inconspicuous as possible; maybe you’d like a bold colour or stripe…  The choice is yours and the options are all available.

Choosing Awnings from Complete Blinds


It’s highly likely that there are going to be times when you need to adjust the position of your outdoor blinds or shades.  And nobody likes having to battle with pulleys or poles when it’s windy, rainy or roasting hot!  For your convenience, consider motorized options…  They’re much easier to adjust and add that extra level of sophistication and style to your home.
