Exploring Outdoor Blinds
As much as we love the warmth of the sun, overexposure can cause skin problems. That is why outdoor blinds are the solution to lowering that damaging sun exposure. Outdoor blinds are designed to be fitted on the outside of the property to stop heat from making direct contact with the window or doors. Having an external fabric can also prevent overheating, fading, and furniture damage. Not only does it prevent damage, setting up outdoor blinds on your balcony or patio area maximizes outdoor space.

What are the benefits of outdoor blinds in Brisbane?
Outdoor blinds are necessities for most homeowners. Having the best outdoor blinds at home provides comfort and protection to family members. However, deciding which outdoor blinds will fit your space is challenging: you need to consider many factors in choosing the best outdoor blinds, such as functionality, style, price, service, and quality. The main benefits of outdoor blinds includes:
- Thermal efficiency (in certain instances)
- Aesthetic appeal
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using outdoor blinds?
It’s essential for the house with an open area or window that is exposed to the direct heat to have outdoor blinds. Outdoor blinds offer many advantages, such as providing shade from direct sunlight, protecting appliances and furniture from overexposure to sunlight. They can also prevent overheating and protect your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
As for the disadvantages, there really is no disadvantage to using outdoor blinds. However, an amateur job may churn aesthetically displeasing results with lacklustre finishing. But if you work with a trusted professional, you can definitely get the best value for your money.
What are the different types of outdoor blinds in Brisbane?
It’s easy to get confused when it comes to outdoor blinds. This is because outdoor blinds can mean different things depending on who you ask. All outdoor blinds will serve the function of privacy and keeping out sunlight, primarily. And they are all going to be located outside, as you can deduct from the name.
You can get roller shutter blinds which roll up. These are very common, especially on balconies. Certain outdoor blinds will roll to the side instead of upwards. You can also get motorised blinds, which are often engineered with water resistant materials.
You can also classify outdoor blinds in Brisbane by their material, commonly wood, wood composite, PVC, or aluminium. What material the blind is made of will have a large impact on the cost, durability, appeal, and maintenance.
Outdoor blinds extend far beyond windows. It also includes awnings and waterproof coverings that might extend over an entrance to a cafe or restaurant. In other words, they can extend outward, not just up and down, or from side-to-side.

Frequently Asked Questions About Outdoor Blinds In Brisbane
What material is best for outdoor blinds?
There is no real ‘best’ material for outdoor blinds. It depends on what you are looking for. Generally, Aluminium is the strongest and most affordable material. It lasts the longest and can deliver the best value for money when installed correctly. But if you’re looking for a material that is more flexible and serves as a waterproof covering against rain, then it’s not the best option (PVC would be a better selection here).
Can I install outdoor blinds by myself?
You can, but we can’t guarantee that you’ll end up with the same results as when you work with a professional. The problem with DIY jobs is that they may not be properly installed. That’s why it’s always best to work with a professional. You probably won’t be able to rely on any kind of warranty when you complete a self-install, and this is something to be mindful of. Moreover, for complex blinds with specialised functions, it’s better to use qualified installers so nothing goes wrong.
How do I know which outdoor blinds are right for my home/business?
There are a multitude of styles and varieties of blinds to choose from. The first step is to identify what you are actually looking for. Do you want simple blinds to keep out light and enhance your privacy? Or are you looking for outdoor blinds with good insulation properties? Do you want the blinds to be standalone features on their own, or a hidden function that people don’t notice?
Once you have a better idea of what you actually need, you will narrow down the selection. If you look for any service without having a clear idea of what you need, then you could be liable to make poor and costly decisions.
Can I reduce the cost of outdoor blinds in Brisbane?
There are some ways to reduce the cost of outdoor blinds. The main methods would include:
- Completing a self install (though this could backfire)
- Working with a high-quality but affordable provider
- Purchasing functional, affordable blinds that work well but without any special features
Alternatively, you could look at it as a long term investment. Better quality providers will offer you strong warranties on blinds, often longer than 10 years! You can reduce the cost by taking a long term approach so you don’t have to pay money to replace or repair the blinds prematurely.
Do outdoor blinds need to be custom made?
Technically, they don’t need to be custom made. But in practice, it’s far better if they are. This ensures that you get the right measurements with the exact fit. The more specialised and expensive the blinds, the more important it is to get a custom fit and install.
It will cost you more if it goes wrong and is harder to get right in the first place. If you have a small window that you want to cover with external blinds, then you have a stronger case for taking your own measurements and ordering the blinds online.
At FKR Group, we custom make outdoor blinds so they are an exact fit. We don’t like leaving anything to chance.
