One of the things we most like to do at Louvretec Australia is to look at trends from all over the world and see how people enjoy their outdoor rooms. We then pass this information onto you, as it may act as inspiration for you now, or in the near future.
In recent months we’ve told you about people turning their outdoor rooms into a second kitchen, complete with an entire cooking set-up that goes well beyond a barbecue or pizza oven. Others have installed magnificent outdoor fires to turn their outdoor room into a stylish and comfortable lounge that they can enjoy all year round. Some people have made their outdoor room like a bedroom by bringing in a day bed. Meanwhile, green thumbs have brought their gardens into their outdoor rooms thanks to vertical wall gardens, or raised garden beds.
These are all great ways to use outdoor rooms, and we’ve recently discovered another cool idea that is trending overseas and becoming ever more popular in Australia; people are opening up their retractable louvred roof on a fine and clear night and transforming their room into an outdoor cinema! We think that’s the ultimate in entertainment.
This is made possible by the advent of outdoor televisions, that are specially designed to withstand the elements. Our outdoor rooms already provide you with great weather resistance but when a screen system is set up for the outdoors just double check with the manufacturer that it is ok to withstand the elements and that it will be safe at all times. Always best to double check!
An outdoor TV or outdoor projector screen in your outside living space is great for watching live sports in a different kind of venue - yet one that is still extremely comfortable. But in winter, we think it would be just perfect to turn on your outdoor heating and watch your favourite TV show with the family...or open up the retractable roof while the stars are out, snuggle up under blankets, and turn your outdoor room into a starlight cinema. We think that’s a magical idea.
Installing a television,projector or screen and making your outdoor room even more of an entertainment area is just another example of how versatile these living spaces can be. An outdoor room can be transformed into anything you want it to be, it’s such a great way to add to the liveable footprint of your home.
