How to create a cosy outdoor entertaining area
When the cooler months come around, the key to entertaining outdoors is creating a space that’s sheltered from the elements. Somewhere warm and relaxing, where you can while away a rainy afternoon over a bottle of red with friends (or by yourself, we’re not judging!). So, how do you do this? With outdoor blinds and awnings, of course!
Keep out the Elements
The best way to enclose an outdoor space (without losing that fresh-air, spacious feeling) is with the addition of outdoor blinds. Once installed, outdoor blinds act as temporary, adjustable ‘walls’ which can go up and down whenever the need arises. Aside from offering all the protection you need from the woolliest of winter weather, this also means they can be adjusted on days of desirable weather! Whether you’ve got a patio, veranda, or even a balcony, add some nifty outdoor blinds and you’ll have a winter-proof, envy-inducing outdoor space on your hands in no time.
Keep bugs at bay
For stylish protection from the elements AND creepy crawlies of all shapes and sizes, look to Zipscreen Outdoor Blinds. Zipscreens are one of our most popular outdoor products, with an enclosed zip and two-piece side-track system that couldn’t be easier to use. Once you have Zipscreens installed, you can enjoy complete protection from the weather and insects all in one sleek, modern design.
Enjoy uninterrupted views
Got a view you’d hate to give up for the sake of blocking out the weather? You don’t have to! Our Cafe blinds are available in a number of different fabrics, including clear or tinted PVC, so that your view is preserved and you’re protected from winter weather at the same time. Then, once the weather clears up, simply roll the blinds up and soak in the sun!
Create a wind barrier
As one of the windiest cities in the world, we’ve had to become experts at managing blustery conditions in our own backyards. Enter: Windmaster blinds and Titan outdoor blinds! These two locally designed products that don’t just block the wind, they’re built to withstand it.
Titan outdoor blinds are a first for Australia, with innovative features that make them much more durable than your average outdoor blind. Similarly, Windmaster blinds are designed with sturdy features to ensure they stay put and create an outdoor wind shield around your home.
Turn up the heat
One of the biggest grumbles about outdoor entertaining in winter is that it’s just too cold to be comfortable. But don’t let the nippy air cramp your style! Once you’ve got your outdoor blinds, you can warm up your space without losing too much heat (and spending too much money). Simply crank up the patio heater to keep the chill at bay, or better yet, build a fire pit. If all else fails, grab some blankets from inside and pour a glass of wine to warm up.
