Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of how blinds can extend the use of conservatories to include the colder months.
During difficult economic times it has been noted that people do not move but improve their homes. With winter upon us there is a need to retain heat and maximise the feeling of a homely and comfortable ambience.
Enter stage left... the day/garden room, the all-purpose conservatory that is as comfortable and enjoyable to be in over the cold winter months as during the glorious summer days. It is necessary to have high performance and high fashion, made-to-measure blinds which are both decorative and durable.
Blinds transform a conservatory in winter so that the conservatory can be used all year round. They add privacy while at the same time giving the conservatory a warm look, insulation and a fashionable decorative touch but, most importantly, the blinds provide a shield from the watery glare of a low winter sun. As nights get darker, blinds will help transform the conservatory into an inviting leisure room, reflecting and diffusing the light to provide a warm and cosy glow.
Ballauff and its ever popular woven wood shading materials continue to be one of the major fabrics chosen for this type of installation. While pleasing to the eye, these fabrics combine aesthetics with a high practical performance in respect of shading and insulation, helping to preserve and regulate heat during the winter months so that the conservatory is enjoyed both during the day and in the evenings.
October and November are now beginning to be the busiest period for sales of quality conservatory blinds. It is quite probable that the savvy consumer, aware that the winters are becoming colder, sees the importance of good shading, combined with a good degree of insulation, and is at last doing something to address it. At a time of crumpets and chestnuts roasting in a roaring fire, it is good to know Ballauff can enhance the winter atmosphere.
The Ballauff pinoleum roman blind range provides blinds for any shape, size or style of conservatory and for all styles of opening windows. Individual requirements are carefully considered to ensure the right fabrics are chosen from the wide choice available. With wooden pinoleum, not only is each blind unique but also each reed is unique. When woven together, the material creates a blind that reflects the ambience of the conservatory, giving a soft, dappled light effect.
