Outdoor blinds as art
Okay, so we realise this isn’t an example of a home with outdoor blinds, but we really felt this image was worth including because here, tinted café blinds, hung with pendant lights create a beautiful design feature with use of line and repetition to make the space feel longer. This look and feel can also be mimicked at your house! The reflective surface of the blinds, which is practical for both privacy and keeping out the heat, also makes the space look larger and builds on the colours in the furniture and plants.
Sleek and modern window coverings
At Australian Outdoor Living we do love our roller shutters and the benefits they provide to our homes, however outdoor shade blinds also make a perfect window covering to protect your home from the harsh Australian sun and cut your energy costs.
The slick look of these dark grey blinds mean that the view of the pool is maintained from the inside and the blinds blend beautifully with the sharp design of the home and the pool.
Create definition between your outdoor spaces with opaque blinds that act as retractable walls. These are great for entertaining large groups, such as birthday parties, and extending the indoor spaces in your home, practically creating another room. Opaque blinds can double as a projector screen when you’re entertaining so you can share videos and happy snaps with all of your friends and family on a large screen!
You can completely change the look and feel of your outdoor space depending on the colour of your blinds. At Australian Outdoor Living our shade blinds come in 12 different colours depending on your design goals. We love the warmth created by the deep yellow shade in these blinds, which are perfect to keep the area cool and shaded without sacrificing the look and feel of natural sunlight.
