Conservatory Sails Vs Conservatory Blinds – Which Are Best? [Infographic]


When choosing a shading solution for your conservatory, several factors must be weighed up, such as – design options, heat and glare control, cleaning, and fabric quality. Sail blinds are an innovative new option for conservatories that bypass many of the problems presented by standard blinds. Let’s take a look at a comparison.

Design Options

Sail blinds can be shaped and styled in endless different configurations, creating a look and layout that is totally unique to your space. This contrasts with the relatively limited design options that standard conservatory blinds offer.

Heat & Glare Control

Standard blinds have two settings – raised or lowered, which does not allow for much flexibility when it comes to heat and glare control. InShade’s sail blinds are shaped to suit your conservatory, and reflect over 70% of the sun’s heat – but still allow sunlight to diffuse through the smartly placed gaps.


Blinds have always been celebrated for their clean, modern look – sail blinds take this to the next level by boasting an elegant shape that is unique to the market. Their distinctive look makes sail blinds stand out from the fray, and creates a talking point for any conservatory.


It is notoriously tricky to clean and maintain the quality of ordinary blinds. The InShade sail blinds avoid this problem – their machine-washable fabric can quickly be unhooked, placed in the washing machine, and hooked back in place without the need for drying or ironing.


One downside of conservatory blinds is that, like most fabrics, they are susceptible to fade by long-term exposure to sunlight. Here at InShade, we ensure all our conservatory sail fabric is resistant to UV degradation by testing to twice the required standards. This means our sail blinds preserve their quality – leaving them looking as good as new for longer.

InShade are the sole manufacturers of bespoke sail blinds for the UK, and use a nationwide network of local suppliers to ensure every corner of the country can benefit from our high quality sails. Contact us to discuss your requirements today – our friendly team are happy to help.
