Are you looking to create the ultimate outdoor living space? You’ve come to the right place. Slidetrack Outdoor Blinds produces stunning, block out blinds that create a comfortable, elegant outdoor entertaining area.

However, many people often go with subpar blinds installation companies that produce shoddy products and go on to install them poorly. It may not seem like which company you choose can have a detrimental impact on the home, but outdoor blinds can have a dramatic impact on the feel and comfort of your outdoor area, even going so far as to cheapen the home’s aesthetic. 

So, when you are looking for outdoor blinds, you want to ensure that you choose a quality product with the right size, colour and style, and from a reputable manufacturer/installer. This way, you can be sure that your choice is going to be perfect for your home. 

Here are the four mistakes for choosing outdoor blinds you should avoid at all costs.

Subpar installation

You’ve chosen the perfect outdoor blinds: you are happy with the colour, design and size, and you think it is going to make your garden look amazing. However, the company you have chosen to install the blinds hasn’t exactly got a reputation for doing an awesome job. The blinds end up being installed out of frame, with a gap to the right and a strange angle.

This poor quality installation will make your outdoor area look poorly constructed and cheap. You’ve already invested so much in purchasing the blinds – why would you want to ruin it by hiring a shoddy installations provider? You have to choose the best installations company to produce the best job – it makes all the difference. 

Choosing style > comfort

Of course, we all want our outdoor blinds setting to look incredible. However, if your outdoor blinds are not enhancing the garden’s comfort – you’ve got a problem. Large parts of Australia are subjected to climatic extremes: crazy hot summers and frightful winters. However, outdoor blinds are designed to create comfort year-round – allowing friends and family to enjoy the garden at any time of the year.

Therefore, the last thing you want to do is purchase blinds just because they look cool. You want to choose a company whose blinds are renowned for their high-quality materials, the kind that can retain the warmth in winter and keep the space cool in summer. Slidetrack’s PVC, 85%, 94% and 99% blinds are perfect for doing just that – you can be sure that the styles in our collection will create a comfortable, incredibly stylish year-round entertainment zone.

Choosing price > quality

You may think you can get away with buying subpar blinds. After all, they’re outside and it doesn’t matter if people can see them or enjoy their comfort at any time. However, there is nothing worse than buying shoddy blinds, enjoying their superficial “quality” for a month or two before they already start to show signs of wear and fray. 

You may be surprised at how often this happens, but it is a true drawback of purchasing a subpar product. Investing in poor quality products will only result in having to spend more on buying new, higher quality ones in the future. It is best to ensure you have a top quality product from the very beginning so as to save yourself from wasting unnecessary time, hassle and money in the future.

Not buying retractable products

Retractable outdoor blinds are a smart, flexible option for outdoor living. You want to be able to easily retract the blinds in the summer months to allow for cool breezes to come through or to block out the midday heat’s nastiness. After all, your outdoor area should be modular and adaptable, and you don’t want to get stuck with blinds that are difficult to retract.
