Benefits of Duette® conservatory blinds


Keep your conservatory cool in summer

Duette® blinds can help to maintain a comfortable temperature in your conservatory as the temperature rises outdoors. The innovative honeycomb cells within the blinds keep your conservatory cooler in summer, blocking out as much as 78% of the sun's heat.

Reduce heat loss in winter

Honeycomb conservatory blinds reduce heat loss by up to 55% by creating an insulating barrier at your window. The air pockets within Duette® blinds trap the heat to keep your conservatory warm over the winter months. These innovative thermal blinds ensure that you can use your conservatory space, no matter what the season.

Provide privacy and light control

Duette® honeycomb blinds provide the perfect balance of privacy and light control for overlooked conservatories. If you like to keep your conservatory bright and airy, blinds in sheer fabrics offer daytime privacy while gently diffusing the light. For those who prefer to block out the sun, a range of blackout blinds is available.

Smart electric options offer convenience

Electric conservatory blinds offer ultimate convenience. Duette® blinds are operated with a simple tab control, which you can choose to upgrade to remote control operation or even smart device command. Electric conservatory roof blinds are especially useful for those hard-to-reach roof windows.

Made-to-measure for the perfect fit

Made-to-measure conservatory blinds are precisely crafted to each roof or window panel, for the perfect fit. Match the Duette® blinds in your conservatory roof and conservatory sides for a uniform finish, or choose different fabrics for an eclectic look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to clean conservatory window blinds

A quick and easy way to keep the Duette® blinds in your conservatory windows clean is to use the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner on the Pleated fabric. A feather duster or damp cloth can also be used on the blinds, but please ensure that the cloth is not soaking wet. It's best not to press too hard when cleaning the Pleated conservatory blinds, to ensure they retain their unique honeycomb shape.

How to clean conservatory roof blinds

Your Duette® conservatory roof blinds can be cleaned in the same way as your Duette® window blinds. Your roof blinds are likely to be harder to reach than your other conservatory blinds, but the same basic principles apply. You can use the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner or an extendable feather duster, to remove any debris from the blinds. A damp - not wet - cloth can also be used, but please ensure that you do not press too hard on the Pleated conservatory blinds. This way, the special blinds will retain their honeycomb shape.

Do conservatory roof blinds retain heat?

Conservatory roof blinds help to maintain a comfortable temperature in your conservatory all year round. The clever air pockets within Duette® blinds trap hot air and create a layer of insulation at the glass. Choosing to fit conservatory blinds within the roof means that you can use the space all year round, as they help to keep things cool in summer and warm in winter.

What colour blinds are best for a conservatory?

With many different colours within the Duette® range, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a shade for your new conservatory blinds. Blinds in natural colours such as greens and browns are popular options to install in a conservatory, as they are a fantastic way to bring the outdoors in. Blinds in monochrome fabric with shades of white, black, or grey are ideal for contemporary spaces, while blinds in a neutral shade such as cream or beige suit more traditional styles of decor. Neutral colours also allow your view to take centre stage, through the visible glass. If you're feeling bold, blinds in bright colours can add a pop of drama and interest to a conservatory.

How much heat is lost through conservatory windows?

As much as 18% of heat in the home can be lost through poorly insulated windows. The good news is that our range of Duette® blinds can be made to fit your conservatory perfectly, reducing heat loss through your windows by up to 55%, and providing light control. The innovative honeycomb structure of the blinds creates a layer of insulation at the window, which helps to keep the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

How do electric conservatory blinds work?

Electric blinds are a fantastic choice for almost every room in the home and have their own unique benefits for conservatories. Electric blinds are particularly helpful in spaces with lots of windows and doors, or hard-to-reach windows, which is a useful consideration when selecting the best conservatory blind to install. Smart electric Duette® blinds can be effortlessly adjusted at the touch of a button on a remote or app, or with a simple voice command using a smart hub. At an in-home appointment, your design consultant can discuss all of the smart electric options within the range and recommend the best made-to-measure conservatory blinds, based on your requirements.

Do conservatory blinds improve insulation?

Yes, Duette® conservatory blinds improve insulation by creating a barrier at the glass. The honeycomb structure within the blinds traps air, reducing heat loss through the windows by up to 55%. Traditionally, conservatories tended to be used solely over the summer. The extra insulation from Duette® blinds means that your conservatory space can be used all year round.
