Revamping Exterior Design: How External Blinds Offer a Stylish Substitute to Traditional Shutters

Brisbane News

In exploring ideal outdoor window treatments, it’s important to consider a balance of style, functionality, and versatility. Traditionally, external shutters have been a popular choice, but external blinds are emerging as a fashionable and practical alternative. Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why:


Local Manufacturing and Quick Fitting

The external blinds we source here at Brisbane Shutters are produced locally in Brisbane, which supports not just the local community and businesses, but ensures a quick turnaround. We have a 21-day fitting guarantee, so there are no lengthy delays.


Premium Quality for Outdoor Spaces

Designed with attention to detail, these retractable external blinds are perfect for elevating your outdoor entertaining areas such as patios, and decks. Their design enhances the visual appeal and protects from the weather so you have extra living space all year around.


Balance of Privacy and Scenic Views

A key feature of these external blinds is their ability to offer privacy without sacrificing your coastal or poolside outlook because the Visiontex fabric used allows for optimal light transmission. It will also shield you from the prying eyes of nosey neighbours.


Cuts back on annoying flies and mozzies

Think about those hot summer nights. You can enjoy alfresco dining without needing to go to warflies or mozzies. Those flies only seem to need a whiff of the barbecue and swarm in with their friends so external blinds while they won’t stop every fly or mozzie, sure help cut down on your unwanted visitors.


Protection from weather

Ever been outside enjoying the sunshine, but there’s too much glare or you find yourself overheating in the intense Queensland sun? The addition of external blinds means you can relax outside without squinting or overheating too much. Plus, when those summer storms roll in, the blinds offer a shield from heat and inclement weather.


UV Protection

The UV-resistant properties of the blinds not only protect your family’s skin but also help in prolonging the life of your outdoor furniture. No more faded or sun-damaged cushions or outdoor furniture.


Customisable sizes

It doesn’t matter how big or small your outdoor entertaining area is, the external blinds are customised to accommodate any size area from sunrooms to large patios and decks.



Brisbane Shutter’s external blinds also have low chemical emissions, ensuring clean airflow.  Plus the fabrics are tested to meet emission standards, making them an environmentally friendly choice for your home.


Colour Matching

The fabrics used in our external blinds are inspired by Colorbond, offering a range of colours for understated style. Mix or match, you’ll find colours to complement your house, office or commercial space.


Durable Material with Warranty

The use of Australian-made Visiontex fabric is reason enough to invest in external blinds. All external blinds feature a 10-year warranty and a commitment to quality and durability.

When you’re planning an exterior makeover, external blinds present are a stylish, durable, and practical alternative to traditional shutters. Their ability to withstand the elements, coupled with their aesthetic versatility, energy efficiency, and ease of use, makes them an increasingly popular choice for Brisbane homeowners. Choosing external blinds is not just a display of your impeccable tastes, but a financially sound decision.
