If you’re looking to add a little extra pizazz to the exterior of your home while improving your comfort, privacy and protection in all weather conditions, outdoor blinds are one of the best investments you will ever make.
Outdoor blinds add a layer of protection while allowing you to maximise your outdoor living space, or spaces, throughout the year—they can also add value to your property. But, climate protection aside, what should you consider when looking to buy all year round outdoor blinds for your WA home?
Let’s take a look.
The purpose of your outdoor blinds
Outdoor blinds are incredibly versatile and serve a range of purposes. To ensure you choose the right blinds for your specific needs, you should consider the main reasons you’re looking to invest:
- Do you want to protect the furniture and items in your outdoor living space?
- Do you need robust protection from a particularly sunny spot in your home?
- Do you want to add more privacy to your home? Is this your main focus?
Answering these questions and considering what you want your outdoor blinds to do will help you whittle down your options and steer your search in the right direction.
To streamline your search and increase your chances of connecting with the perfect outdoor blind for all seasons, you should sit down and consider your budget.
By setting a viable budget, you will be able to gauge what you can get for your specific needs, preferences, and purposes. Doing so will give your search real purpose while making sure you don’t overstretch yourself financially.
Another key consideration to make when choosing outdoor blinds is investing in something that will go the distance.
Most outdoor blinds are crafted with canvas, mesh or PVC fabric. Now, while mesh blinds are good, we recommend choosing a clear or tinted PVC option as it is durable, will maintain its looks over time, and provides excellent protection from all typical Perth seasons, weather or climate conditions.
Perhaps the most important outdoor blind consideration of all is function (or ease of use). Your standard cafe-style blinds are quite tricky to lift up and down and are prone to snagging—especially in adverse weather conditions.
So, before you invest in outdoor blinds for your home, you should do your research and choose a system that is reliable, stress-free, and easy to operate whatever the weather.
For the best functionality and versatility all year round, Ziptrak blind systems deliver the goods. Crafted with cutting-edge technology, Ziptrak blinds are free from flapping, snagging, winding, buckles or zippers.
With Ziptrak technology, you will no longer need to struggle with your outdoor blinds—there is no set position so you can enjoy all of the home-boosting benefits without the fuss.
Quality & warranty
As you narrow down your outdoor blind shopping list, checking for reviews, testimonials, and marks of quality is vital.
In addition to a proven track record, a good warranty is a clear seal of quality. If an outdoor blind manufacturer offers a solid warranty, you will know that they trust the quality of their products 100%—and if something does go wrong, you know you’re covered.
