Make your outdoors multi-seasonal

With the irresistibly long summer evenings in Australia, it’s time to think about how you can improve your outdoor areas for maximum enjoyment in summer and prolonged use all year round. There are several different ways to improve your outdoors which we take a look at below.

Multi-seasonal elements

Having outdoor space with cover, shelter and the possibility of heating is essential if you want to enjoy your garden year-round. Outdoor spaces that can incorporate these elements, as well as lighting and sound, and shade in the summer, create a space that can be used 24/7, 365 days per year. Our Louvretec rooms are outdoor rooms that offer all these elements to make up a gorgeous and multi-functional room to enjoy in all seasons. They can be transformed into outdoor kitchens or living rooms, ready to eat pizza and watch Netflix whilst still in the open air.

Fire Pits

Fire pits can be a focal point of any garden. They can extend evenings by adding light after the sun goes down and adding heat as night approaches. Having a fire pit burning in your backyard will also discourage mosquitoes from hanging around. Like most insects, mosquitoes don't care much for smoke. Whether you want a fire pit for aesthetic purposes, as a deterrent for bugs or to keep you warm at night there is one thing we can all agree on; how good it is to be able to roast your marshmallows on the fire on those special family nights. 

Playing With Color 

A colour scheme is important for the overall look of your garden and for bringing the different spaces and elements together. Adding outdoor external louvre shutters offers you the option of a host of various colours to match anything from paint, carpets, furniture or garden flowers. Monochromatic colour schemes are a popular way to go with outdoor rooms. Couple this with a pop of colour using indoor plants that help to keep the feeling of nature in your outdoor room. Two or more colours can also be used to zone an area, like separating a dining area from a space to relax. Use complementary colours for each area.
