Avoid inward opening windows and doors.
Try and avoid step/s between the conservatory and main house.
Consider having air conditioning that blows hot and cold;
this will avoid both central heating radiators and also roof
blinds to stop the excessive heat from the roof panels. This
is also a very cost-effective option, so should be seriously

of the Vertical Blind
By far the most popular is the vertical blind concept; the
uniform strips of fabric will compliment the long expanses
of window, which are usually a feature of a conservatory.
Vertical blinds are ideally suited to conservatories as they
cope so well with the large drop that conservatory windows
have, compared with household windows. They also provide excellent
covering and privacy if fitted to doorways.
Conservatories are often positioned so that one side borders
with the neighbouring fence or wall, or looks out onto an
unpleasant view, such as refuse bins; the benefit of the vertical
blind is that it can be kept closed along any portion of the
room, to conceal any undesired view.
blind easily and conveniently gives complete privacy by simply
pulling the cord to close the slats. This makes the conservatory
a flexible living space, enabling it to be used for a variety
of purposes, including as a bedroom.
vertical blind is fully opened, the slats are positioned to
give a clear view of the window, whilst concealing internal
fittings such as UPVC or wooden uprights, therefore allowing
maximum light into the room. Alternatively they can be positioned
at an angle, making it possible to see out of the windows,
whilst blocking bright sunlight, or whilst also providing
Additional slats are easily available, so if slats in the
blind are damaged they can be replaced. All slats can be replaced
for a complete make over of the conservatory at a very reasonable
cost; for example, a conservatory measuring 2.5 metres square
by 2.5 metres square will cost approximately £100. Alternatively
most slats can be hand washed and some can be machine washed;
it is advisable to try washing one slat to see the effect
each method would have on it, then make a choice.
The vertical blind is hung from 100mm face fix brackets, which
are positioned directly under the facia that runs around the
top of the conservatory. This enables the slats to operate
without touching the window handles.
to correctly measure a conservatory for blinds, measure from
directly under the facia to the sill, and to the floor at
doorways to measure the drop. Take the measurement from the
back of the windowsills to give the widths and between the
sills in doorways. If the blinds meet in a right-angled corner
then it is necessary to reduce the measurement of one of the
blinds by 100mm.
The head rail and brackets are available in white or dark
brown. The pull-cord control is available as a cord, a chain
or a wand, although the wand control cannot be used on a split
for vertical blinds can be left or right hand operation and
the slats can stack back to the left or right, or part in
the middle like curtains. They can also rest in the middle,
which would be appropriate for inward opening windows.
blind slatting is available in opaque material for maximum
protection and also with winter insulation and solar reflection.
light filtering material is the most popular choice as it
controls solar heat and glare and also provides privacy at
the most economical cost.
PVC slatting is also available; this design is solid so no
chains are required on the bottom of the slats; it is easy
to wipe clean, so is ideal if you have problems with pets.
It also provides maximum privacy, sun protection and winter
