Add to your already ultimate patio area with a set of outdoor roller blinds.
Australians love spending time outside, but often find themselves hiding inside from the harsh Aussie sun. Luckily, a patio from Australian Outdoor Living can protect you from the weather while you enjoy the outdoors.
Here at AOL we believe that the ultimate patio isn’t complete without a set of outdoor roller blinds.
These blinds will not only redefine your patio, but also change the way you use your outdoor space. They also have the potential to completely change your lifestyle!
A complete guide to outdoor roller blinds
Outdoor roller blinds are exterior blinds that allow you to enjoy your time outdoors all year round.
With winter on its way, there’s an increasing chance that a wet and cold afternoon can put a dampener on your plans.
Fortunately for you, that’s where Australian Outdoor Living comes in.
AOL’s outdoor café blinds are a practical way of protecting your patio from the elements without losing the view.
The Bella Crystal range is completely clear, yet still offers ample protection from UV rays, wind and rain.
They also offer great insulation meaning you can enjoy your time outdoors on even the coldest of days.
The Bella Bronze also offers the same benefits as the the Bella Crystal, however comes in a tinted finish.
Our outdoor blinds are also available in shade options: the Bella Vista and Bella Opaque.
The Bella Vista shade blinds let you enjoy your view from the comfort of the cool shade.
This range won’t be as good keeping out the rain, but it does offer increased privacy.
The Bella Opaque offers the highest level of privacy and blocks outs 99 per cent of UV rays. This guarantees protection from the sun.
Our Opaque range also offers a very high level of wind and water protection, as well as great insulation.
AOL’s outdoor roller blinds come in a choice of either the Classic, Neo or Motion operating systems.
The Classic Series is the traditional method of operation, utilising a manually-operated crank that gives the user complete control of the tension of the blind.
When the blind is at the desired height, simply attach it to pre-installed hooks to increase the tension.
The Neo operating system gives you all the benefits of a premium system, while still retaining a manual operation system.
It is installed on a set of guide tracks that allows the user complete control over the height of the blind, as well as completely eliminating gaps.
This system is perfect for a patio, especially if your patio is a standalone structure.
Lastly is the Motion operating system: the peak of outdoor blind technology.
The Motion system is operated by a remote control, allowing the user to operate the blind from the comfort of their seat. It also offers all the benefits of the Neo system, with that added electrical component.
This system is super easy to use and can control up to five blinds at once.
Create the ultimate entertaining area
Installing outdoor roller blinds on your patio will let you create the perfect entertaining area.
As Australians we love the great outdoors, so having an indoor area that transcends outdoors is something most of us aspire to.
A set of outdoor roller blinds provides a sheltered, cozy space to sip on something warm and seek refuge from the winter wind.
Have your insulated outdoor roller blinds down, turn on the outdoor heater and create a warm and inviting outdoor room.
Your outdoor blinds will also protect your guests from the harsh rays of the sun and provide your entertaining area with some privacy from peeking passersby and nosy neighbors.
Protect your outdoor furniture
Outdoor roller blinds are also a great way to protect your outdoor patio furniture from the elements.
The harsh rays of the sun can do as much damage to your outdoor patio furniture as they do our skin. Sunlight loves to eat away at colour.
You’ve probably already seen faded seat cushions or discoloured wooden tables, both prime examples of what direct sunlight is capable of.
In fact prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause irreparable damage to your outdoor furniture.
It even has the potential to weaken the structural integrity of your outdoor furniture, especially if your pieces are made of plastic or wood.
Moisture caused by exposure to the rain can have a similar effect, so it’s important to take the appropriate steps to ensure your outdoor patio furniture is out of the elements.
That’s where a stylish and practical set of shade blinds comes in.
