7 Reasons To Install Outdoor Blinds
- Gives You Control
- Protection from Wind, Sun, Rain and Dust
- Cooler in Summer & Warmer in Winter
- Outdoor Furniture Lasts Longer
- Custom Fitted To Your Space
- Maximises Outdoor Living
- Outdoor Blinds Add Value
1. Gives You Control
Outdoor blinds, or Café blinds as they're often called, can revolutionise your outdoor space and the way you use it. They offer you control over your exterior space without having to lose that essential outdoors, fresh-air feeling.
2. Protection from Wind, Sun, Rain & Dust
One of the downsides of outdoor spaces is their exposure to the elements. Especially in Perth, where the wind, sun, rain and dust can really take their toll.
In our coastal areas, when the sea breeze comes in strong, being able to pull down the blinds and continue enjoying the day is fantastic. Equally in our inland suburbs when those hot easterlies start blowing, quality outdoor blinds will shield and protect you. You'll still be able to enjoy yourself without getting covered in dust or things blowing over.
In hot weather, the blinds can offer shade from the sun and high level UV shielding. They can also help you keep your outdoor space insect free. And when sun turns to rain, you'll still be able to entertain and enjoy yourself.
Installing outdoor blinds gives you a high level of protection, so you can access your outdoor space all day long and all year round.
3. Cooler in Summer & Warmer in Winter
If you’re outdoor space extends from your home or business, then outdoor blinds not only give you control of the space but they can increase the energy efficiency of the main building too.
They reduce heat loss in cold weather and heat gain in summer. You can air your home or business naturally without worrying about the heat.
4. Outdoor Furniture Lasts Longer
Protection from the elements also improves the lifespan of outdoor furniture and fittings and gives you greater choice in decor.
Outdoor blinds prevent general wear from sun and rain and also prevent colours from fading. So you can furnish your pool house just as you would like, without having to worry about weather damage.
5. Custom Fitted To Your Space
Best of all, they come in a wide range of fittings and materials. This means that both practically and aesthetically there’s a perfect outdoor blind for your space, whether it’s a patio area for entertaining family and friends, a pool house, or a restaurant dining area.
Outdoor blinds available in modern track-guided Ziptrak blinds which can also be motorised for complete convenience. These types of blinds look great and don't have any straps, pulleys or ropes that can be tripped over. Very popular! You may wish to read our FAQs about these blinds.

All types come in a wide range of materials. You can chose from shade mesh fabric and PVC materials in a variety of densities and colours.
6. Maximises Outdoor Living

And they offer all of the above without detracting from the outdoors experience.
Outdoor blinds are a fabulous way of extending your living area and maximising your living space. Yet deciding upon the right type and colour of outdoor blinds can be daunting for many homeowners.
The best thing is to take the time to find out about the different types of blinds and their recommended uses and then start thinking about colour co-ordinating.
How To Choose Outdoor Blinds
Outdoor blinds play a role in not only extending our living areas, turning a patio or deck into another room for all seasons or enclosing a pergola or fenced pool area, but they also help protect us against the elements.
But when you decide upon the location of where you would like your blinds to be installed, you also need to think about what function you want your blinds to achieve.
- Would you like outdoor blinds to protect you or your home from wind, rain or sun?
- Or do you want them to give you some much needed privacy?
- Do you have a view you still want to admire once your blinds are in use or are you happy to block an undesirable view out?
The answers to these questions will help you to firm up suitable colours and what sort of material you need them constructed with.

Ziptrack blinds are available in a range of colours and are easy to manoeuvre into the exact position you need it in as they move on a track. Ziptrack outdoor blinds are available in PVC or mesh fabrics, making them great for providing sun, wind, cold and UV protection.
Café blinds are really just another name for outdoor blinds. Traditionally they were operated by ropes and pulleys but nowadays most people opt for the modern track-guided outdoor blinds like Ziptrak. The rope and pulley version is still available though, in PVC and mesh varieties.
Bottom lock rail blinds work well when you need to avoid ground fixings or trip hazards, while bi-fold PVC doors are a great alternative to using glass doors in areas where you need to be safe, such as next to children’s play areas.
