If you’ve lived in Canberra for long you’ll know that it can get colder here in winter than any other capital city in Australia, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get outside. Apart from putting on a beanie, scarf and thick coat to walk around Lake Burley Griffin, there are many other things you can do to stay warm, including installing outdoor blinds on your Canberra home.

A set of quality outdoor blinds installed on your Canberra outdoor living area will do wonders to keep your patio, pergola or verandah warm. Particularly if it’s combined with outdoor heating. So, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of outdoor blinds in Canberra, which blind is best for you, and how you can maximise their impact.

Canberra café blinds the perfect winter remedy

If you’re looking for a solution specifically for the colder months, then a set of PVC café blinds are the perfect choice.

PVC outdoor blinds, or café blinds as they are often called, provide a solid barrier against the elements. Cold temperatures are abated and wind, rain, hail and the occasional flurry of snow is kept out. Which all means that your outdoor living area will be a warmer, more comfortable place to be when the weather turns cold.

If you combine PVC outdoor blinds on your Canberra home with good outdoor heating (gas, electric or wood – the choice is yours), then your patio, pergola or verandah will soon be warm. You’ll be able to enjoy your outdoor living for many more months of the year, to relax and entertain.

Dimensionally stable PVC blinds even better

Café blinds on your Canberra outdoor living area are good, but dimensionally stable PVC blinds are even better!

While the name is a bit of a mouthful, the benefit of these outdoor blinds is that they stay taut and unwrinkled. Not only does this make them look better, it also means your blinds will do a better job of sealing out the elements.

Fabric Canberra outdoor blinds

PVC café blinds are great for the cooler months and can easily be raised when the weather turns warm, but if you’re after an outdoor blind that will provide benefits for 365 days of the year, then fabric blinds will suit you more.

While they won’t do quite as good a job as PVC blinds in the cold, they are still very beneficial in warming up your outdoor living area. And they’ll keep cold winds, rain and other elements out.

Any reduction in benefits in winter is more than made up for in the warmer months, when the fabric blinds will keep the sun out of your Canberra outdoor living area. The blinds will also keep any hot winds out of our space and make the area feel a whole lot cooler.
