Outdoor Blinds

Our homes are a reflection of, and tailored to, our lifestyle. An outdoor area extends the living space of your home as well as adding another dimension to your life.

Your outside space can be a place to relax and entertain, sit and read, or enjoy a sunset cocktail. It can be a somewhere you interact with family and friends or a quiet retreat.

By adding outdoor blinds to your existing verandah or patio you can create a whole new room for your house.  You will also extend the amount of time during the year that you can utilise your exterior room.

Imagine an open-air space filled with light and unrestricted views while providing privacy and protection from the wind and strong sun rays. It can be a space for you to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning sun in winter or for a party to spill outside into.

Create an al fresco lounge area to read a book without the glare or to read the newspaper without the need for paperweights. The addition of an exterior blind will not only enhance your lifestyle, but it will improve the look of your home and in turn, increase its value.

Reflect the Australian style of living, add your love of the outdoors and maximise the climate to create a comfortable space to live, relax, entertain and enjoy.

An Outdoor Blind to Suit Every Home

At Australian Outdoor Living we have an exceptional range of outdoor blinds to complement any style of house and your desired outdoor living goals and dreams.

Whether it be a deck, patio, pergola or even to hang from your carport, we have a system that will suit you.

If you have a beautiful view you don’t want to obstruct, clear or tinted café blinds are the perfect choice for you. If privacy is what you are looking for, shade blinds would be the ideal solution. If your al fresco area is in a particularly sun-affected spot, our Bella Vista shade blinds are certainly worth your consideration.

One of our specialist designers will visit you to discuss your needs and suggest options that will best suit your home, your personal style and ultimately maximise your outdoor living space.

Our consultants will be able to show you samples of all our Australian manufactured products that are suitable for your needs. Once you have decided on the look and feel of the blinds you’re after, they are able to provide you with a no obligation free measure and quote.

Cafe Blinds vs Shade Blinds Comparison Table

Available In
Clear & Tinted Cafe Blinds

Clear & Tinted Cafe Blinds

When it comes to blinds for your outdoor living area, one of the choices you have available when working with Australian Outdoor Living is a cafe blind. Choose from clear or tinted cafe blinds and enjoy 50+ UVP screening from the harmful rays of the sun.

Both clear and tinted PVC cafe blind varieties can help to block your living area from the sun and wind, making it a cool and comfortable place to gather and entertain.

Outdoor blinds such as these will extend your living areas and potentially increase the value of your property.

Shade Blinds

Shade Blinds

If you favour privacy, another popular option Australian Outdoor Living can offer, are Bella Vista Shade Blinds. Shade Blinds also minimise the heat from the sun making entertaining outdoors more comfortable in the hotter months.

Shade Blinds are available in a huge range of colours and are extremely durable.

Best of all, you will be able to keep your view outside, but those looking in will have an obstructed view.

If you are looking for outdoor blinds that can offer both protection from the sun as well as a high level of privacy, Shade Blinds might be what you are after.

Opaque Blinds

Opaque Blinds

If you’re looking for something a bit more private and protective, our Bella Vista Opaque Blinds may be your perfect choice. These blockout blinds will create a whole new room in your home where you can enjoy the outdoors in good weather and bad.

Opaque blinds have a tighter 2×2 weave that blocks out 99% of the UV rays and offers 30+ UV Protection Factor. They also come in 5 colour options to complement your home’s existing features.

If you’re looking for a blind that offers the ultimate protection from the sun, Opaque Blinds may be just what you’re looking for.

Our Process

No obligation design consultation – Once we’ve received your request for a free measure & quote, we’ll be in touch by phone to verify your requirements, wants and needs. We’ll arrange a suitable time for an on-site no-obligation appointment with one of our experienced design consultants. We understand your time is a precious resource, so we try out best to work around what suits you. For this reason, our consultants are even available after hours and on weekends.

Custom designs – After chatting with you to find out your wants and needs for your new project, we take on board your requirements and help you find the perfect customised Outdoor Blinds installation solution. If you’re happy to proceed, and we’re confident you will be, we’ll set a check-measure date and discuss an installation date. (Yep, we check our measurements a second time to ensure the job gets done right!).

Set the installation date – After we’ve completed your on-site check-measure, confirmed measurements, and received the paperwork, our Production Manager will be in touch with you to set an installation date. We completely understand that most of our customers wish to have their new Outdoor Blinds installed and ready to enjoy, sooner rather than later. So we’re quick to ensure this process is as smooth and hassle-free as possible and that we can lock in an installation date that works for you.

Installation – Your installation date arrives and so does the team from Australian Outdoor Living to get your Outdoor Blinds installation up and running. Our installers will work hard and efficiently for a hassle-free installation so that you can begin enjoying the benefits of your new Outdoor Blinds.

Peace of mind – Once your new Outdoor Blinds are up and installed, and you are 100% happy, our installers will show you how to use your newest home instalment. At this time, we’ll also explain and provide you with a handy Tips & Maintenance Fact Sheet, as well as answer any questions you may have. Your Guarantee Certificate is then presented, but not before we ensure you’re completely satisfied with our work. No project is ever finished until the customer is 100% satisfied and has signed our Customer Satisfaction form. We take pride in our work and it’s important to us that you can take pride in it too.
