Choosing Conservatory Blinds
Since conservatories have so many windows, choosing conservatory blinds is extremely important. The blinds are a major part of the room's decor and can really help create a strong, beautiful design. Luckily, there are many wonderful blind styles to choose from.

Since a conservatory is almost all windows, even a small amount of heat coming in each window can really increase the room's temperature to an uncomfortable level. In addition, the sun's rays can damage furniture and fade upholstery over time. People also buy blinds for the conservatory to provide privacy from prying eyes. This is especially important for conservatories facing a busy street, as the feeling of being watched will often cause homeowners to end up spending very little time in the room. Additionally, many homeowners use blinds as design elements to help give the room a finished look. Before you shop for conservatory blinds, you may want to find out if your windows come in standard sizes. Often, conservatory windows are custom windows, designed to fit perfectly together. Each window needs to be measured and blinds need to be custom made.
