Melbourne is lucky enough to have such a wonderful climate with great summers and cool winters, allowing its inhabitants to experience both warm and cold climates. However with both winter and summer come their downfalls, which often prevent people from enjoying outdoor spaces more often.

Summer in Melbourne is a wonderful time of year with warm winds and plenty of sunshine. However, it can mean that occasionally the outdoors can be a tad too warm to enjoy. With the heat also come other things, such as flies, or dust. Outdoor roller blinds are able to be made with both plastic and mesh – two layers – which can be used on their own or jointly. The mesh layer, made of similar fabric to shade cloth, is great for keeping flies or other insects away from an outdoor area. The plastic layers are great for keeping dust out, as well as the insects. This enables an outdoor area to be used during the summer without the worries of everything being covered in dust or having to swat insects away from food or your face. An additional benefit of no dust or insects is less cleaning! That’s right – your outdoor furniture will stay cleaner for longer, meaning you can go the extra mile in making your outdoor area look and feel great without having to worry about keeping everything clean. But what about the rain?

Winter during Melbourne is often described as cold and wet. Some places near Melbourne even receive snow – and winds coming down from these mountains increase the wind chill factor. This often prevents people from being able to sit outside. Outdoor roller blinds made of plastic are a perfect solution to this issue. Plastic roller blinds offer protection from the wind and rain, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor area all year round. You will just have to remember to roll them up when the wind gets too heavy as it could impact the durability of your blinds. Winter is also a great time for getting an effortless and free wash onto those roller blinds. Outdoor plastic roller blinds are so easy to wash – they just need a hose (or rain) down. Outdoor roller blinds are able to be made of 2 different materials – mesh and plastic. The mesh version is great for use in summer in keeping insects away whilst still allowing considerable airflow. Plastic roller blinds are a great solution to being able to enjoy an outdoor area even when the weather outside is wet and miserable as it protects from the wet and the cold. What’s more, is that they are easy to clean as well as roll down or up again. This makes them a great solution to prolonged use of an outdoor area in a city like Melbourne with such a variable climate. You can click here for more information regarding roller blinds.
