The Best Blinds and Window Awnings for Coastal Living

Life on the west coast has plenty of perks. We’ve got unlimited access to some of the world’s best beaches, a relaxed lifestyle, fewer people and of course, we’ve got that glorious Perth weather to enjoy! You could say we’re pretty #blessed over here.

So, when you’re decking out your home to take advantage of Perth’s enviable climate, the right outdoor blinds and awnings should be top of your list.

The Best Blinds and Window Awnings for Coastal Living

Benefits of Awnings

The thing to keep in mind is this: your window treatments need to be durable and resilient enough to withstand high humidity, wind and sun exposure, in addition to the winter elements! This way, you can stay out on the balcony with a glass of wine or enjoy an alfresco dinner with friends without worrying about the weather.

Keep reading for the four best outdoor blinds and awnings for coastal living.

Windmaster Blinds

Life in the world’s third windiest city isn’t without its challenges, especially when it comes to outdoor living and entertaining. From summer’s daily afternoon sea breezes to winter’s gusty, unpredictable winds, the ability to batten down the hatches at a moment’s notice is essential.

Our Windmaster Outdoor Blinds are designed to be durable and resistant even in the face of extreme weather. They’ve also been made locally in WA, specifically as a solution to Perth’s blustery conditions, so you know they’re made to last. As the name might suggest, these outdoor blinds are the perfect choice for balconies or any outdoor area that’s exposed to strong winds.

Zipscreen blinds

Does your home have ocean views? First of all, we’re very jealous. But secondly, have you heard of Zipscreen blinds? These stylish outdoor blinds tick all the boxes when it comes to creating the perfect outdoor area. They’re transparent for unobstructed views, plus they reflect more than half of the heat coming from the sun, so that you can escape soaring summer temperatures and even entertain throughout the chiller months with ease.

If you’re looking for stylish protection from the weather and pesky insects (while making the most of your ocean views) Zipscreen blinds are your answer. They can even be customised in your choice of coloured fabric and finishes to perfectly match your beach theme interior or exterior.

Wireguide awnings

Thanks to their weighted aluminium bottom rail, wireguide awnings offer unmatched control and functionality. These innovative awnings won’t be disturbed by soft breezes, meaning you can enjoy outdoor (or even indoor) entertaining without any disruptive banging or clanging sounds.

Wireguide awnings also feature custom made stainless-steel fittings and cabling, which help to suspend and secure the fabric even when it’s windy.

Retractable awnings

If your home has a smaller backyard or alfresco area, retractable awnings may be more suitable. These awnings provide overhead shelter from the sun and rain while you’re relaxing or entertaining in the space. When the wind picks up, simply fold the awnings away so that they’re protected from any damage.
