When decorating a residence, many homeowners only consider the interior of their home. While it’s true that interior design is highly important when personalizing your space, exterior design can be just as important (yet is often overlooked).
One feature in particular that people tend to disregard or not even know about is exterior window coverings. This includes blinds, shutters and awnings that are weather-resistant and live on the exterior of your house. Each one has different benefits which must be considered before buying, but the Wynstan team can help you decide upon which outdoor window covering is best for your situation.
Why Install Outdoor Blinds?
If you already have internal blinds, you may be wondering why you need external ones as well. There are many reasons why they can be beneficial for both the appearance and the functionality of your outdoor space.
Outdoor blinds are a great way to improve your home’s curb appeal, both to visitors and potential buyers or renters. There are many appealing elements they can add to both the front and back of your house; Here are a few of the most common advantages that they can provide:
- Pop of Color– If your home is monochrome, a brightly cultured window fixture can add just the boost you need. At Wynstan, our outdoor blinds come in a variety of colors, textures and prints to provide you with the ultimate opportunity for creative expression.
- Added Privacy–Exterior blinds make it harder for those on the outside of your home to see in. This protects you and your family while also increasing your home’s security, and therefore it’s property value.
- Protection From the Elements– While damage or deterioration due to natural causes is often unavoidable, outdoor blinds or awnings can help reduce your risk by protecting your windows, patio and exterior walls from direct contact.
- Sun Protection– Outdoor window fixtures are an optimal way to limit sun exposure within your house as well as in outdoor areas such as gardens, decks and patios. If you would like to control the natural light and temperature in your living areas, whether you are using them personally or to entertain a group, outdoor blinds can help you to do so.
- Modernization–The addition of outdoor blinds or shutters can improve the look of a home that is dated or just a bit boring. They add contemporary appeal and, when installed in a set, can facilitate a look of aesthetic cohesion within your exterior design. Timeless styles and color schemes are exemplary for this purpose.
Where are Outdoor Blinds Best Used?
If you have any sort of outdoor living area you want to enhance or you just want to make your home’s exterior look a little nicer, you may be a good candidate for outdoor blinds, shutters or awnings. They can be used in all sorts of spaces, but are ideal as coverings or accessories for the following areas:
- Screened Porches

Your budget, style and the way in which you use your home will impact what sort of outdoor blinds you can benefit from. However, they are a worthwhile investment even for folks with the most basic of needs. If you want to enhance the appearance and functionality of your outdoor space(s) without spending a fortune or putting forth too much effort, the simple addition of some exterior window coverings is a great means of doing so.
