How To Get Most From Your Outdoor Room

The part of the year is approaching where we all want to start making the most of our outdoor space. BBQs, garden parties, sunbathing and backyard games are how most of us are dreaming of spending our Spring and Summer weekends. Creating an outdoor space that suits your needs is essential. This is our guide on how to make the most of your outdoor area.

Define your space

If you have young children around, your garden needs will be different from if you want it to entertain adult guests. Thinking about what you want your backyard to be used for is the first step in maximising its use.

Shade control

The Australian weather can be stiflingly hot and we all know  the sun can be dangerous. Having shaded areas in gardens is necessary but following the shade around can be annoying. With our opening and retractable roofs, you gain full control of sun protection by having adjustable, rotating louvres to protect from sunlight as you wish. 


Consider the material and types of furniture you choose for outdoor spaces if they are constantly exposed to the sun. Sunlight can cause damage and sun bleaching to cushions, seats and sofas. With our outdoor rooms, you can start to eliminate these issues. Starting with an opening roof, you can then close the sides with either Louvretec shutters, frameless sliding glass doors, mesh outdoor blinds or clear PVC outdoor blinds in Australia.

Lighting and Heating

During the day, the natural light and warmth of spring and summer will keep you sufficiently cosy in your outdoor room, but come evening and in the colder months, lighting and heating will become the cherry on top of your outdoor room. With no longer having to revert indoors when the sun sets and the temperature drops, you can now spend longer in the comfort of your outdoor room with lighting and heating options available through Louvretec.

Dining Equipment

Help the indoor/outdoor flow by creating an outdoor dining area that matches the feel of nature. Using natural materials such as Bamboo plates can add a natural touch to our dining experience. Using earthy tones and colours on table cloths with plants and flowers as a centrepiece will only add to the feel of your space.

When it comes to improving your outdoor area, we have a number of solutions to help. If you are interested in learning more, get in touch with us today.
