If you just started thinking about building a conservatory, you should continue reading. If you already are the happy (we hope) owner of such a building, you may jump the next section and go directly to the benefits of the blinds.
Blinds and Conservatory Types
Besides its picturesque, country style, a conservatory has the merit of being a relatively cheap home extension, which still grants most of the functions of a regular room. It is not necessarily restricted to a place where you can enjoy the sun, have a tea and chit-chat, although it fills this function very well.
Traditionally, conservatories used to be independent buildings in the garden, similar to kiosks. Their function as a past-time place was quite clear, in that context. On the contrary, modern conservatories are developed as extensions. This only emphasizes the idea in the previous paragraph: while such a construction is great for having a tea, it can fill many other roles, depending on the owner’s needs and ambitions. Blinds will prove helpful in this respect, since they add personality and privacy which turn a simple sun-room into a real part of the house.
Turning to the past once more, conservatories used to be ornate buildings, as charming from the outside as from the interior. Modern conservatories are usually made of PVC, a type of rigid plastic which is widely used in modern constructions and plumbing. This is a solid, low maintenance material, cheaper than wood, but which cannot reproduce the classical Victorian carvings and joints. However, the standard structure shapes remain and, although you will meet less diversity in conservatories design than in the past, there are differences in aesthetics and prices, which you should take into account.
Victorian conservatories are probably the most popular. They have a distinctive rounded end, which can be build with three or five facets. A variation on this model, the Edwardian conservatories (also known as Georgian conservatories) present a flat end instead of the rounded one. For the same dimensions, they will offer significantly more space than the Victorian design.
The lean-to conservatories are developed along a wall of the main building. They are lower in height, which makes them suitable as extensions to shorter buildings. Lean-to conservatories are also known as Mediterranean conservatories.
You should consider two hybrid types too, the P-shape conservatories and the T-shape conservatories. They have more complex shapes and provide additional space.
Last but not least, it is also possible to build a conservatory leaning on two walls of the main building at the same time, filling a corner. This way, you will be making efficient use of space and spending less, since only the other two walls and the roof remain to be built.
The Benefits of Electric Conservatory Blinds
First and foremost, there are two basic types of blinds: for the roof and for the windows. It is surprising that many houses in the UK feature conservatories which were only fitted with windows blinds, leaving the roof open. Indeed, the whole idea of such a construction is letting the sunlight in. But during summer days, the heat can become unbearable, if not at least uncomfortable, not to mention the sun glare, making its way right into your eyes.
A roof blind will solve both of these issues. Various materials are available, from transparent to blackout. You can choose a certain degree of transparency or, for bigger conservatories or narrower roof windows, you can count on opening some blinds and leaving the others closed. Either approach will enable you to control lighting.
Concerning heat, any type of screening material will help, when replacing direct sunlight on glass. Think of the wooden shutters of the old homes. But science has gone a long way, and thermal regulating fabrics or laminates can be employed now, some of them initially designed for astronauts. They keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So here you go – a simple window blind can act as an efficient heat control and light control device.
Furthermore, a conservatory can expose you in a very unpleasant fashion, when people are taking peaks from the outside. They are also easy to access structures, attractive to burglars. Obviously, blinds do not replace anti-burglary systems, but they do offer privacy and let you decide what should be visible and what not. Roof blinds may seem less important in this respect, but, above all, if you live in a town or city, they will prevent the neighbours upstairs from looking down on you.
We have mentioned roof blinds more than window blinds simply because they tend to be underrated. Both of them are as important. And they both contribute a lot to the overall feeling of a conservatory. This is why suppliers provide a wide range of materials, colours, patterns, sizes, and operating systems.
