Extend your living area outside

Extend your living area outside

June 24, 2019

The joys of Australia’s mild weather patterns mean you can live outdoors the whole year round. The extension of your living area to the outdoors is now achievable all year round, not just in summer. With the help of louvres and louvre roofing systems, you can make your outdoor area both more beautiful and more functional.


Key Considerations for Outdoor Areas 

The benefits of having an outdoor room are substantial, which is why thorough planning needs to be done from the very beginning to ensure that you end up with an outside area that is suitable for its intended use and is functionally appropriate.


Not only do you want your space to be functional, but it should also be aesthetically pleasing. There are various ways to make this happen, from materials to divide the spaces, to decking or paving, and even plants and outdoor furniture. Installing louvre shutters is the ideal way to have the best of both worlds and allow the sun to stream in during the summer months but protect you from the rain on a colder day. All this while keeping it stylish. 


WeatherShade by Sunlite 

A quality outdoor room will have the ideal balance of shelter, style, and functionality. With the heat of the long Australian summer and the heavy downpours of the Australian winter, the WeatherShade louvre roof is designed and optimised for these harsh conditions. The WeatherShade is a marine-grade, low-maintenance system, engineered for effortless operation.


The louvre blades are made to open and close with the push of a button, so you can set them to how you want them to work. Louvres let you enjoy your outdoor room by letting you decide how much light to let in, how much air to let in, and more. There are many different kinds of louvre roofs, and you can change them to fit your outdoor space. This makes it a great choice for an outdoor room because it can fit right in with your house and blend into your landscaping.


Bespoke outdoor areas 

WeatherShade systems are designed to be bespoke structures with extensive strength and durability, as well as incorporate customisable features. While having an outdoor space that may follow a specific colour palette, louvres can be painted in either a Dulux or Interpon powder coat to match the furnished finishings of your space. Their sleek, timeless lines and gently curved blade profiles are always showstoppers as design elements that will transform your outdoor area.
