Alan Ward Blinds are experts in the very specialised area of conservatory blinds. After many years’ experience we know what works and what doesn’t. Equipping your conservatory with blinds is an expensive business and getting it right first time is important. There are many pitfalls and issues to consider and entrusting the job to an experienced professional can save a great deal of unnecessary problems.
A good deal of thought needs to go into planning a conservatory, and most will need some form of shading especially in summer when temperatures can soar. Alternatively the temperature can drop precipitously as soon as the sun drops. Good quality blinds can help to regulate the temperature in a conservatory and make it a much more pleasant place to be regardless of the prevailing weather conditions. Our expert advice will ensure you get it right first time.
What blinds should I put in my conservatory?
Firstly, we need to consider the aspect of the conservatory, where will the sun rise and set?
Is the conservatory going to be used all year round?
What is it going to be used specifically for?
A spare room or play room, a dining area, or a sun room?
Will all sides of the conservatory, be open to the sun?
Do you have any natural shading, like trees and shrubs?
Do you want to have all the windows exposed so you can see your garden?
Do you want to put ornaments or plants on the window sills?
What blinds do you like?
These are just a few aspects that need to be considered before you proceed. Alan Ward Blinds can give you a no obligation survey and quotation, giving you expert advice on the best types of blinds for your conservatory.
Reflective backing is available on many blind fabrics and should be an option that you consider for any conservatory. This will dramatically reduce the temperature in your conservatory, as the sun’s harsh rays and heat are reflected back. Reflective backing will only be on one side of the fabric.
Vertical blinds are a versatile, cost effective way to transform your windows and conservatory.
Vertical blinds are a great way to control the light coming into your room and can reduce glare from direct sunlight.

Venetian blinds are an ever more popular choice because of their style and versatility. Whether looking from outside or within venetian blinds offer an attractive solution to shading your conservatory.
Venetian blinds will need to be supported on face fix extension brackets, so the operation of the blinds, will not interfere with the window handles. Alan Ward Blinds can advise on the most complex of blind installations.
