Outdoor Sun Blinds For Holidaying At Home


As summer gets closer it seems evident that Melbourne residents will be holidaying at home this year. Outdoor sun blinds are the perfect way to extend your home and create a relaxing space to spend time with friends and family.

The best way to enclose an outdoor space is with the addition of outdoor sun blinds. Outdoor blinds act as temporary walls that can be adjusted without losing fresh-air or the feeling of space. They are suitable for all types of outdoor entertaining spaces such as verandas, balconies, patios and pergolas.

So how can you create an outdoor room that can be used in the evenings as well as the winter months?

Keeping The Bugs Out

For stylish protection from the elements and those annoying mosquitoes, we suggest external sunscreen blinds with side channels such as the Zipscreen Outdoor Blind or Luxaflex Magnatrack. These blinds have an enclosed zip and two-piece side-track system that is simple to use. The fabric is available in a 1% and a 5% openness, both will block the bugs but the 1% will block some more of the breeze. Selecting a mesh sunscreen fabric will allow vision out when used in daylight hours.

Create A Wind Barrier

Melbourne is known for having four seasons in one day and sometimes we need to block the breeze to make our private oases more comfortable and tune out the bustle of the everyday.

Our Cafe blinds are available in a number of different fabrics, including clear or tinted PVC, so that your view is preserved and you’re protected from winter weather at the same time

Heat Your Outdoor Space

Want to use your outdoor entertaining space throughout Melbourne’s winter? Once you have your outdoor blinds, you can heat up your space without losing too much heat. Patio heaters and heat strips will go a long way to keeping your outdoor room warm.

Retractable Pool Shade

There are days in the heat of Melbourne’s Summer when it would be ideal to have shade over the pool. A retractable folding arm awning offers the flexibility and convenience to provide shade when required and the enjoyment of sun on the other days. Our retractable awnings can be operated manually or with the convenience of motorisation. Our smart retractable awnings can be used with Google Home and Alexa.

Retractable Patio Shades

Patio shades are a perfect way to extend your outdoor living areas so you can enjoy your outdoor spaces all year round in Melbourne. Patio shades run on a track system under pergolas or enclosed patios and tuck back neatly out of the way.
