What are the increase in popularity and why in these areas?

From our understanding of the market, what we see happen with our customers is that after the outdoor patio blinds are fitted in their homes and, their visitors show up and see how great they look, people start searching and looking into getting some for themselves.

At Open ‘N’ Shut, we always get a lot of recommendations from previous customers referring family and friends. This accounts for a lot of work for us and, we are always more than happy to oblige with word of mouth recommendations for outdoor blinds.

Imagine this simple knock-on effect throughout a densely populated city and suddenly before you know it, all homes and businesses are wanting Australian outdoor blinds for their premises.

This increase seems to be occurring more over the last year with so many searches for outdoor blinds on Google lately. Interestingly, if this same effect happened in high population cities such as Sydney or Melbourne, it could rapidly increase the outdoor patio blinds market.

It’s really interesting that people interested in outdoor blinds are also interested in awnings, window roller shutters, and shade/shadow for their homes. These things go hand in hand as outdoor blinds are attached to patio/awnings or pergolas

Searches for the shade make sense because people know just how good the outdoor blinds are at ensuring you have a shaded area away from the sun glare. Interesting to note that people get outdoor blinds not just for the shade but for the bonus of keeping out insects, flies etc., for privacy and temperature control.

What are the Best Outdoor Blinds?

When it comes to outdoor blinds the best is to have products that offer good value for money. The last thing you want to do is choose a fabric that doesn’t block out the sun very well. It needs to be weatherproof, heatproof and durable to ensure it cannot rip whilst keep out the sun and other elements of the Australian climate.

The outdoor blind products from Open N Shut are exactly all of those things and not as expensive as some other DIY outdoor blinds.

Having the blinds installed by a professional like us will also ensure that issues with the intricate rolling blind mechanisms are reduced and cause no issues in the long term. Blinds can become warped or can become unlevel if the roller blind material does not roll up correctly. Our installers know the exact best method to ensure that cannot happen and secure your blinds will last years to come.
