Shading Options for Your Pergola

If you’re fortunate enough to have a pergola in your garden, you’ll know the joy it can bring. It offers an enticing combination of open air and a little protection from the elements. But as the sun moves, so do your shade requirements. And for those times when you need more protection, or perhaps a little more privacy, having the right shading option for your pergola can make all the difference. In this blog, we’ll explore some of the top shading options provided by Artistic Blinds to ensure you get the most out of your outdoor space.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are a popular and stylish choice for pergola shade. At Artistic Blinds, we offer custom-made outdoor roller blinds that not only enhance your pergola’s aesthetics but also offer robust sun and rain protection. Available in a variety of materials including PVC, mesh, and canvas, they provide different levels of shade and weather resistance and can be easily retracted when you want to enjoy full sunlight.

Venetian Blinds

Offering excellent light control and ventilation, outdoor Venetian blinds are a classic choice for pergola shade. Our Venetian blinds come in a variety of materials, including timber, aluminium, and PVC, allowing you to choose the one that fits best with your pergola’s design and your outdoor decor.

Motorised Blinds

For the ultimate convenience, consider motorised blinds for your pergola. These cutting-edge shades can be operated remotely via a smartphone or voice assistant, and can even be programmed to open and close automatically in response to the weather conditions. This ensures you can always maintain the perfect environment in your pergola, even if you’re not there to adjust the blinds manually.


If you’re looking to provide a larger shaded area under your pergola, awnings can be an excellent solution. Available in fixed or retractable styles, our awnings come in a variety of materials, including canvas, acrylic, and PVC. They offer reliable shade and protection from the elements and can be customised to perfectly fit your pergola.

Custom Shades

At Artistic Blinds, we understand that each pergola is unique, and sometimes the standard options just won’t do. That’s why we offer custom-made pergola shades that meet your specific requirements. We work closely with you to understand your needs, then design and create a shading solution that enhances your pergola and helps you enjoy your outdoor space to the fullest.

Choosing the right shading option for your pergola can enhance your enjoyment of your garden, offering the perfect balance of sun and shade.

Whether you prefer the traditional appeal of Venetian blinds, the high-tech convenience of motorised blinds, the expansive shade of an awning, or a completely custom solution, Artistic Blinds has the expertise and range to bring your vision to life.
