Outdoor Blinds: the answer to creating your all-weather entertaining space

January 3, 2022


Now we are on summer holidays it’s often a time we assess our home and outdoor spaces and consider how we can make more of what we have. We all enjoy spending quality time with friends and family and being able to host our friends and loved ones is a large part of what Kiwi holidays and weekends are all about.

However many of us have a porch, deck or backyard that can be hit with either too much sun or wind (or perhaps both!) which can be so frustrating as it often limits when, where and for how long we can entertain.

To create a really enjoyable all-day, all-weather space, Outdoor Blinds might be the perfect solution for creating your great all-weather entertaining space.

Benefits of Outdoor Shades and Blinds

Why should you add these features to your deck or backyard? You will love the results after we are done with the installation! These are some of the benefits that you can expect:

  • Protection from the sun: Reduce the health risks of UV exposure by blocking direct sunlight on the porch. Limiting sunlight also helps with temperature management in this area.
  • Block the rain: When the storms roll in, you can spend time outside without getting soaked by the rain. These blinds can be used to add another layer of protection with water-resistant materials.
  • Change the style: Not only are outdoor shades highly functional, but they can also be used to improve the style of your garden or backyard. You can choose from a variety of fabrics and colours to coordinate with the other features on your home
  • Improve privacy: How well can the neighbouring buildings see your activities when you are spending time on the deck? These products can be helpful to improve privacy. Choose dark shades if you want to block the views and enjoy the patio without being overlooked.

Where to Install Outdoor Blinds?    

Where should outdoor blinds be installed? It is up to you!

  • The blinds can be used as window coverings outside, or they can help to enclose a patio or porch area to block the sun.
  • You can choose thick fabric for the blinds or use mesh products that diffuse the light and protect against the sun, while still offering a view through the blinds.     
  • You have the freedom to select from a wide range of colours and fabrics that will match the other décor elements in your home.
  • Creating that perfect outdoor space doesn’t need to cost a fortune either. At Lidgard we’re able to help you to create a solution that is tailored to meet your needs – and your wallet.
