Live life outdoors without feeling as though you’re being watched. Our Bella shade options offer varied levels of privacy so you can truly entertain in the comfort of your own backyard.

Add Style & Value to Your Home

Make your outdoor area a natural extension of your home by matching or complementing the existing style with a tailor-made blind.

Available in All Colour Options

Our Bella Vista range offers 12 colour options to choose from so that you can customise your blinds to best suit your needs and individual style.

Fire Rated & Abrasion Resistant

Our blinds contain no harmful substances and are even fire-resistant to help safeguard your home in the bushfire season.

Canberra may be a city of hard work, but it’s also a place of play. And its beautiful summer temperatures make it an ideal place to enjoy the sun. But it’s even nicer to have a place of your own you can go to without worrying about getting too much UV exposure. With our shade blinds, you can stay outdoors as long as you want. Our blinds are designed so you can enjoy the view of your very own Aussie wilderness while keeping the heat and sun out. And with our special shade blind material, you can see out but those nosy neighbours can’t see in, guaranteeing you privacy without compromising on your view. Make your very own (and very private) outdoor living space today.

Our Range Of Blinds

Canberra can get hot! But that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. Our shade blinds offer you an outdoor solace protected from UV rays and eternal heat. And since Canberra homes have a myriad different architectural styles, our shade blinds also come in a range of colours, styles and materials. Explore our gallery below for the full shade blind range we have on offer.



Classic Series

The Classic Series is a simple, manually operated outdoor blind system that has become vastly popular with Australians around the country. This system allows complete control of the tension of the blind, remaining crisp and neat at any height. Versatile in its application and available in the entire Bella fabric range (PVC and Shade), Classic won’t fail to impress.

Beautiful Views With The Bella Vista Shade Blind Range

The Bella Vista Shade Blinds allow you to experience your beautiful view with privacy and without interference via specially designed fine pinholes in the shade material.  They are designed for you to see out and to obstruct others ability to see in.

Made from materials of the highest quality and durability, these shade blinds are designed and made specifically with the Australian conditions in mind.  There is no stitching to disintegrate under our harsh UV rays and the shade blinds use a simple winding mechanism that creates tension on the blind, minimising warping and flapping in the wind. This gearing system also excludes the need for unsightly straps, ropes and pulleys. Each blind features an unparalleled  ‘backbone’ system to ensure the blind maintains its shape and integrity.

Available in 12 colours and up to 5 meter spans, the Australian Outdoor Living range of Shade Blinds come to you direct from the factory and purpose manufactured for you in your chosen style and design. They are delivered with a satisfaction guarantee. We also provide guarantees on parts and labour and the Bella Vista range comes with a 5 year UV material warranty.

One of our specialised designers will be more than happy to bring samples of the Bella Vista shade blinds to your home to see what would best suit your needs and individual style.  Once you have decided on the look and type of outdoor blinds you are after, they will be able to provide you with a no obligation free measure and quote.
