Why install outdoor shutters?
Some people recommend bistro blinds or outdoor roller blinds for alfresco entertaining spaces, but we’re a huge fan of outdoor shutters! If you’ve already got outdoor shutters! you’re doing outdoor living right! Outdoor shutters are a super versatile product that not only look great but can help to create a more comfortable outdoor area, complete with shade, plus heat and wind protection.
Here’s how shutters can help you make the most of your outdoor entertaining area during warm and windy Perth days.
Beat the Heat
Outdoor shutters are one of the easiest ways to block the sun’s heat and potentially harmful UV rays, so you can still enjoy time outdoors even in the middle of a Perth summer. Their functional design means you can adjust the slats to allow as much light, ventilation and heat in as you like! Outdoor shutters will keep things much cooler all day long, meaning no more ducking inside to stick your head in the fridge!
Keep your outdoor shutters completely open on a balmy summer evening to allow the good old Freo doctor to pass through and cool you down. Then, during the hottest part of the day, keep them closed to bring the temperature to a more comfortable range.
Outdoor shutters have an amazing way of turning a bland backyard into a cool, comfortable and stylish spot. There are loads of styles to choose from, including fixed, hinged bi-fold and sliding, and the blades come in different sizes, too. Choose from a range of classic and contemporary colours to match your outdoor décor. You’ll be sure to receive plenty of compliments once they’re installed!
Durable and Low-Maintenance
Designed to be robust and weather-resistant, outdoor shutters will hold up against harsh sun and UV rays in summer, as well as winter’s wind and rain. For that bit of extra protection against the elements, opt for shutters in sturdy aluminium.
Aluminium shutters are hardwearing, lightweight and an absolute cinch to maintain. To keep your outdoor shutters looking as good as new, just give them a wipe from time to time and follow this easy guide on how to clean your blinds and shutters. As an added bonus, outdoor shutters will also reduce the amount of work required to keep your window glass spotless!
Privacy in Spades
As pleasant as it is to relax in your backyard, you seem to lose that layer of privacy that you have when you’re entertaining indoors. That’s where outdoor shutters come in! With these exterior window treatments installed, you can keep your curious neighbours out of the conversation (unless they’re invited, of course!). Simply rotate the adjustable blades until they’re closed to keep prying eyes out (and the noise of your gathering in!).
