Outdoor blinds have been popular additions to homes all over Australia for many years, and with good reason. These products not only add comfort and style – they also provide invaluable sun protection to our homes, which will be vitally important as we approach these hotter summer months.

We recently discussed what to consider when choosing an outdoor blind, however another important aspect is whether you should opt for a motorised or manual blind. When it comes to finding the perfect outdoor shade solution that will offer you sun protection at your fingertips, electric is the best fit.

Do I Need an Electric Outdoor Blind?

As the summer sun streams into your home during the warmer months, you’ll want something simple and easy to block it out. The common mistake many people make when it comes to shade solutions, is they think indoor blinds on their own will do the trick. This is not the case at all. In fact, indoor blinds offer very little protection from the sun’s harsh rays and it’s your outdoor blinds that will work the hardest to keep your home cool.

For complete control over your outdoor blinds, electric is the way to go. The remote control functionality of a motorised outdoor blind makes using them even easier. We all know how frustrating it can be to manually work with ropes and pulleys, especially when the sun suddenly hits and your house begins to feel like a sauna! That’s when the convenience of an electric outdoor blind comes in.
