How Outdoor Blinds Add Value to Your Home

Whether you’re thinking about selling your home or having it valued, ensuring that every space has been appropriately fitted out can mean the difference between top and bottom dollar. Alfresco entertaining areas are often a little neglected, particularly at times of the year when we do most of our entertaining indoors. The simple addition of outdoor blinds can go a long way to improving the value of your property, ensuring that you get the best price possible come sell day.

In the list below, we’ve taken a closer look at the ways that blinds add value:

  • Aesthetic Appeal
    When someone is looking to buy a house, it’s curb (or aesthetic) appeal is very important. The great thing about Blinds Melbourne is that they can add an extra touch of beauty to your property, helping to tie the inside and the outside together thanks to the wide range of styles and colours available. It’s the sort of touch that shows potential buyers that you care about your home, suggesting that you’ve taken really good care of it.
  • Improve Insulation
    Windows are responsible for a fair bit of heat exchange and UV radiation – although they are a necessity, they can actually reduce your home’s energy efficiency by as much as 25%. Stopping heat and glare before it reaches your windows is the best way to prevent heat and UV from being transferred inside the home. Blinds will add an extra layer of insulation between the elements and your external walls.
  • Increased Comfort
    One of the best things about these blinds is that they can improve the comfort level of your home. You’ll be able to use your alfresco area no matter the weather, from blazing hot summer afternoons to winter nights of pouring rain. You won’t have to plan entertaining around the weather, nor will you have to relocated should things go awry in the middle of your event – everyone will be comfortable.
  • Increased Living Space
    Let’s face it – full renovations or extensions are costly and just not feasible for all families. Outdoor blinds are a far more affordable solution that can give you the extra living space you desire whilst making use of existing space. They can be used to enclose an existing patio, verandah or deck and make it a much more versatile area of the home. From an extra dining or lounging space to an outdoor kitchen, the possibilities are endless.
  • Increased Protection
    As well as protecting your family and friends from the elements – after all, no one wants to get sunburned or soaked through – outdoor blinds will go a long way to protecting your belongings from damaged. Excessive weathering can damage your alfresco furniture beyond repair, particularly soft furnishings like cushions. Shades will also protect your indoor furniture from sun damage for rooms that border the space.
  • Pest Control
    Whilst we all love getting outside and enjoying the weather, insects are often the uninvited guests that we forget about. From swarms of flies and mosquitoes during the summer to plagues of moths during the winter, pesky insects can make any event unenjoyable. The addition of blinds, however, can help to keep these pests out. It also means you can leave those smelly bug sprays in the cupboard.

We have only scraped the tip of why outdoor blinds are such a good investment for the home and the perfect choice if you’re looking to add value to your property. On top of all the reasons we’ve covered above, they’re also fantastic for improving privacy (ideal if you live on or border a busy street) and they’re also environmentally friendly (by naturally insulating your home so it needs less energy to heat or cool it).
