A balcony is a great feature of any house. It offers an outdoor space to enjoy a morning coffee, a weekend barbeque and alfresco dining experience. It\u2019s also a space where good times are had and memories are made. However, for many, a balcony is not a space that can be enjoyed all year around. In winter, it becomes an \u2018out of bounds\u2019 area that sits stagnant, unused for months on end \u2013 no good times are had, no memories are made. Balconies are open to the elements and offer no wind or rain protection. But this needn\u2019t be the case. What if I told you, you can easily and affordably turn your balcony or outdoor area into a usable winter room? You can, by simply installing outdoor blinds. Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds supply and install quality outdoor blinds across Sydney. You can choose between ZipScreen Blinds or PVC Blinds. ZipScreen Blinds are a track-guided outdoor blind system with no chains, ropes or pullies. PVC Blinds, on the other hand, are not track-guided and do use ropes and pullies.

Make your area usable during winter With winter well and truly here, I bet you\u2019ve already stopped enjoying outdoor meals and you probably haven\u2019t had your neighbours over for a barbeque since autumn, am I right? I hate the cold (with a passion). But guess what, I enjoy the same alfresco lifestyle all year round thanks to the winter room that I created. By installing ZipTrack Blinds around my balcony, I have made a warm enclosed area that I can enjoy any time of day, any time of year \u2013 even during winter.

If you\u2019d like to enjoy all areas of your home all year round, then you too should consider installing ZipTrack Blinds (or PVC Blinds) on your balcony. Protect outdoor furniture Balconies are great, but they offer very little protection against rain, hail or sun, which can ruin outdoor furniture.
