There are many different factors to take into consideration when you are planning to decorate a conservatory. One of the main issues facing new conservatory owners is what they should hang on their windows and ceiling. There are pros and cons to each type of blind, and no one type is best to hang as conservatory blinds. A lot will depend on factors such as your budget, what overall look you are aiming for, how much of a bridge you want to create between your backyard and your conservatory, and even how hot or how cold your sun room becomes during different seasons.
One of the cheapest and most flexible window treatments to use is roller blinds. These are some of the more common blinds used, mainly because they are cheap and also fairly easy to install. Outfitting a conservatory can be quite costly, thus anything you can do to cut back on costs is certainly well worth it. One such way many people have trimmed their costs is by installing their own conservatory blinds. One drawback with roller blinds is that they do tend to billow out away from the windows if you have any of the windows open, and that can be fairly distracting and a little noisy too, as they bang back and forth.
A second option many people opt for are roman blinds. These blinds fold up accordion style. These blinds are fairly easy to hang and many people have chosen to hang them by themselves also. Roman blinds are usually a little more expensive than roller blinds although they do offer more by way of design and material that they are made from.
If you have a little more money to spend, you should also consider timber window blinds. The great thing about blinds made from genuine wood is they really help with temperature control and you definitely want to create some energy efficiency in a room that is nearly all glass.
The one section that will cost the most money and that you cannot really skimp on are your conservatory roof blinds. Due to the layout of most conservatories, they are very difficult for the average home owner to install by himself, although it does add to the expense when you have to have someone come and install them for you.
No matter what you decide on, it is important to install conservatory blinds as otherwise your conservatory will become too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. They also offer added protection from the sun damaging your furniture.
