The idea of a conservatory, particularly in Great Britain, is to stay connected to the outdoors all year. However, conservatories with glass windows can be tricky to regulate temperatures.
During the summer months, keeping your conservatory cool can be difficult. Direct sunlight can be overwhelming, causing a ‘greenhouse effect’ to occur. Stifling heat in your conservatory can make it uncomfortable to relax, even if you have the windows open.
Introducing blinds is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to regulate the temperature in your conservatory. With the cost of living and energy prices on the up, alongside rising temperature, the time for new conservatory blinds is now.

Blinds for Conservatories
For many, a conservatory is a hub of the home. Therefore, if you use your conservatory all year round, it’s wise to install blinds to help control its temperature. Even if it’s more of a summer space, blinds are a great way of enhancing privacy, controlling temperature and adding some extra style.
Conservatory blinds should be versatile and simple to control. Nowadays, with so many choices, deciding which blinds would be best for your conservatory can be hard.
Conservatory blinds come in an array of styles: venetian blinds will definitely look the part but lack insulation properties in colder times; roller blinds are adaptable, and some come with blackout technology, to stop light penetrating through; and thermal blinds would be a sensible choice, as they can keep the heat at bay when it's warm and shut out the cold during winter. To get the best features of each, we’d suggest a pleated blind.

Conservatory Blinds Know-How
As well as investing in new conservatory blinds to add style, the regulation of temperature is key, to making it more environmentally friendly.
Knowing when to open and close your blinds plays a big part in their energy efficiency. Pre-empting the sun’s appearance and movement is key. For instance, before you go to bed, it would be wise to shut any conservatory blinds on east-facing windows. Preventing direct sunlight from hitting individual windows is the aim, whilst still enjoying the daylight around the rest of your conservatory.
Heat from the sun radiates into the glass and has no form of escape. This is how your conservatories heat-up. Blinds create a barrier from the window into your conservatory and keep heat at bay. This is why the right type of blind, adjusted at the right time of day, can help you keep your conservatory cool.
