Outdoor blinds are a must-have for every outdoor area, especially if you want to make it comfortable enough for use all-year round. Ziptrak blinds in particular are a multifunctional blinds solution that ensures to tick all the boxes when it comes to protection, ease-of-use, safety and style. For that reason, they are a favourite amongst many Australian homeowners; and they might even end up topping your own list of favourites as well.
If you’re thinking about installing Ziptrak blinds to your outdoor space, it’s important to consider a few things first. Below, we’ve shared some tips on how you can ensure to select the best Ziptrak blinds for your home:
Consider the Openings
The first step to getting the ideal Ziptrak blinds for your outdoor area is to consider the space in which your outdoor blinds will be installed. Whilst the maximum length of a Ziptrak blind is 6 metres, we can also cover larger openings by installing either a permanent or a removable post. In this way, everyone is able to benefit from having Ziptrak blinds installed in their home, no matter what type of patio area they’re working with. You may want to go for smaller blinds divided by posts rather than installing one large blind for several reasons. For example, if you’re living in an area that’s quite windy, such as by the coast, it’s better to have multiple smaller blinds rather than one large blind.
Take Your Outdoor Area’s Needs into Account
Ziptrak blinds are custom-made to suit your outdoor area. So, naturally, you will also have a choice in the fabric and track colours used in your blind’s design. In terms of fabric, you will generally have a choice between tinted PVC, clear PVC, or mesh. Of course, depending on your own needs and requirements, you may find one type of material more suitable than the other. For example, mesh would be excellent for shading your outdoor area from the harsh glare of the sun. Keeping the sun’s glare out of your alfresco area will help to prevent your furniture from fading. Aside from this, shade is also imperative for avoiding skin cancer. On the other hand, PVC may be more suitable if you’re wanting a blinds solution to block out the strong wind and rain.
When it comes to track colours, it’s a good idea to choose something that suits with your home’s existing structure. Most of the colours available for Ziptrak blinds are neutral, so you can be sure that they will continue to remain versatile and relevant, despite any design changes you make to your outdoor area over the years.
Consider Motorised Blinds
Of course, Ziptrak blinds are easy enough to use on their own. But having your Ziptrak blinds motorised comes with its own additional set of benefits as well. Motorised blinds inject a whole new level of convenience into the lives of homeowners. With the simple press of a remote-control button, you will be able to open or close our outdoor blinds in an instant, consequently taking one less chore out of your day. In particular, motorised blinds can be especially helpful in situations where you need to shelter your outdoor space quickly. For example, when it starts to rain, and you quickly need to shield your patio area in order to protect your furniture from getting wet. Aside from this, motorised Ziptrak blinds can also add a touch of luxury to your outdoor area. Indeed, there are many great reasons why you should choose motorised blinds.
