blinds & lou­vres

Gardening Australia - - OUTDOOR LIVING -

Clear out­door PVC blinds, also known as café blinds, al­low you to ap­pre­ci­ate the gar­den view, while block­ing draughts and rain. Off-the-shelf blinds, op­er­ated by a rope pul­ley, are the most in­ex­pen­sive op­tion. You can also order cus­tom-made blinds with rope pul­leys, and more ex­pen­sive ver­sions with man­u­ally cranked geared screens on stain­less-steel guide wires, or mo­torised blinds. Ad­justable ex­ter­nal lou­vres are a more per­ma­nent op­tion. Th­ese can be tilted to al­low breezes and light into a space, and closed for pri­vacy and draught con­trol. Cus­tom-made from steel or pow­der-coated alu­minium, they can be fixed ver­ti­cally or hor­i­zon­tally to cre­ate a sharp mod­ern am­bi­ence, and are pop­u­lar for pro­vid­ing pri­vacy on the sides of pa­tios or bal­conies ad­join­ing neigh­bours.
