Greg Caie from Shutter Secure talks about Outside Living. The new trend in home decor.
What are the essentials when creating an outside living area?
To start with, your outside area will need a roof structure and upright pillars, whether it be concrete columns or bricks.
Shutter Secure will then use the top beams to hang the Shutter Blinds from. This small change will immediately transform an ordinary stoep into a room with much more potential.
Bring in some plants, a rug and a comfy couch and you will never remember the old dull space. In fact, your new outside living area might just become your new favourite spot in your house.
Is it expensive to create a space like that?
When comparing Shutters with some other products on the market, often they are not the cheapest, but by far the most practical/versatile.
Whether you choose our Security Shutter Range or the Normal Aluminium Shutter range, they both operate identically and will sufficiently cover the area.
Canvas drop down awnings, often balloon and flap around in strong winds, known as the parachute effect and is not the best solution for creating a calm extension to your home.
Frameless glass gives you a more rigid covering but if north facing on sunny days can turn a patio into a hot house. And on most occasions will need some form of sun treatment to keep the area cool. This will need council plans too.
So, save yourself some money and the Rolls Royce, choose Shutter Blinds first. They close up completely in winter time, giving you your braai area back on rainy days. And provide some cool shade on those hot summer days.
Another benefit, well worth mentioning, is the security factor. Just lock up and go and keep your patio furniture protected from the weather and theft.
What type of Shutters would be best suited to create an outside space?
Aluminium Shutter Blinds are the best choice.
What is the longevity of such a project? Do you offer guarantees?
Aluminium Shutters, which have stainless steel components, they last 15-20 years with hardly any maintenance
