Need to add some shelter, UV protection or privacy to your outdoor space this summer? By creating sheltered living spaces in your outdoor areas with a customised patio blind, you can maximise and increase your living areas, creating more space to enjoy all year round.
With spring in the air and summer on its way, we know our sun during the day will be getting stronger and we’ll be searching for more outdoor living as the evenings roll around. Our New Zealand made Retractable Blinds have been designed to give you the flexibility of outdoor living all year round; blocking out the low sun in the morning or evening and preventing your materials and furnishings degrading from our harsh Kiwi sun – allowing you to enjoy your space at all times of the day you choose. Ideal for stopping the cool wind on summer evenings while gathered around the BBQ, outdoor fire – or simply enjoying alfresco dining.
Customisable designs will provide shelter and UV protection to create your ideal living spaces and we can also create custom infill panels to fully enclose an area, creating unique blind solutions to suit your home set-up.
We also understand your budget is important and will create a solution that is tailored to meet your needs – and your wallet.
With building costs seemingly ever on the increase, maximising your home’s living space can be highly expensive and often involve lengthy wait times for builders and the consenting process.
Thankfully, Retractable Blinds can create the extra living space you crave almost immediately – and for a fraction of the cost of a permanent wall or fixed louvre wall. This makes them a highly cost effective solution, providing both visual appeal and value to your property for very low cost compared to a traditional build.
The cost of Retractable Blinds can vary from a single fully installed blind from $1,200 up to $2,000 per blind(dependant on size, material and installation).
Motorisation is available to further customise your blinds; the cost of automatic retractable blinds is approximately $450 per blind and electrical wire up.
With our Retractable Blinds you’re able to fully roll them away and out of sight in the winter months, or if you choose, keep them in place to enjoy outdoor living all year round.
