How much do outdoor Patio or Alfresco blinds cost in 2024

Last updated on



Are you looking to transform your outdoor space into a year-round haven? Understanding the costs and options for outdoor blinds in 2024 could be your first step toward achieving the perfect balance of style, comfort, and functionality.

Let’s dive into the details and explore how you can maximize your investment in patio or alfresco blinds in Perth.

Outdoor blinds are an excellent addition to any alfresco or patio space, combining functionality with aesthetics to enhance outdoor living whilst protecting from the weather. The cost of these blinds can vary significantly based on several factors including the model, installation requirements, and additional features specific to your needs. 

Here’s a detailed breakdown of what you can expect to spend in Perth when purchasing outdoor blinds in 2024.

Types of Outdoor Blinds and their costs for your Patio or Alfresco:

1. Crank Style Blinds

Price Range: $1,500 – $2,500 per blind

Description: These are the most budget-friendly options, ideal for shading and privacy during the day. While they block glare effectively, they aren’t fully enclosed, which means wind, rain, and insects can still enter the alfresco area. They do not feature guided rails or an enclosed pelmet, which makes them less effective as a weather block-out solution.

2. Manual Track Guided Blinds 

Price Range: $2,500 – $4,000 per blind

Description: More expensive than crank-style blinds, these offer a more comprehensive solution with full block-out capabilities when paired with an enclosed pelmet. They can span up to 6 meters and are spring-assisted for ease of use. It’s recommended to opt for automation for the regular use of blinds wider than 4.5 meters to ease the physical strain.

3. Electric Blinds

Price Range: $2,500 – $6,000 per blind

Description: The premium choice, electric blinds are the easiest to use and often the most aesthetically pleasing. They include a motor and require professional installation by outdoor blind technicians and electrician at the same time. The cost is higher due to the electrical motor components and the need for specialized installation.

When choosing the ideal outdoor blinds for your property, it’s important to understand the various factors influencing the cost. From the colour and model type to structural adjustments and the location of installation, each element plays a role in determining the final price. Fabric grades, custom coatings, and additional components can all add to the investment, but with careful selection, you’ll achieve the right balance of functionality, style, and budget. The following details will guide you through these considerations for a well-informed decision.

Key Determinants of Outdoor Blinds Pricing

ColourStandard colours are available at no extra cost, but custom powder coating will increase the price.
Model and Pelmet TypeDifferent models and pelmet types can affect the cost significantly.
Structural AdjustmentsCosts may rise if additional flashings or posts are needed to square the structure or flash/enclose gaps between the newly installed blinds and the existing structure.
Installation LocationInstallation on double-storey buildings or balconies can increase the cost.
Fabric GradeHigher-grade fabrics will impact the price due to better durability and aesthetic quality, as standard Nu Style Outdoor blinds include 94% block-out fabrics, but 99%, 100% and PVC plastic café style blind skins are available at additional cost.
Additional ComponentsExtras such as additional handsets, hook sticks or dual manual handles also contribute to the overall cost of patio blinds as well.

Investing in high-quality outdoor blinds not only enhances the functionality of your outdoor space but also contributes to its visual appeal. While there are cheaper options available, it is crucial to consider the longevity and effectiveness of the installation to ensure that the blinds serve their purpose well and stand the test of time. For the best results, opting for a reputable provider who guarantees and warrants quality products and installation is advisable.
