3 Ways to Live a Beautiful Life Outdoors
There’s not much we Aussies wouldn’t do outdoors. We cook, dine, entertain, play and even sleep! Now, where’s my hammock?
It’s no wonder that alfresco areas have become a must for so many families.
A typical outdoor space can be anything from a couple of deckchairs in cosy courtyard to a full-on covered house extension with state-of-the-art kitchen.
If you are planning to do more outdoor, there’s three questions you should ask yourself.
First of all, what do you really love about it? Secondly, what bugs you about it? And lastly, what’s missing from it?
Maybe you love the morning sun, but it gets too hot in the afternoon, or you enjoy looking at your garden, but not the people next door. We all love the idea of relaxing outside, but we often find ourselves sheltering inside from the villainous weather.
Luckily, Half Price Shutters has three perfect products that can make your home a hero, protecting you from the weather and extending your indoor living spaces outside.
Take a look at their great quality but cheap plantation shutters, outdoor awnings and patio blinds.
1. Louvre Aluminium Plantation Shutters
Nothing evokes the spirit of a luxury coastal resort like shutters. Our outdoor plantation shutters combine stunning good looks and superior performance with long lasting durability, and they allow you the luxury of year-round entertaining.
Wrap them right around your alfresco area. They can completely enclose a balcony or deck from floor to ceiling and create a seamless continuation of your home – think outdoor kitchen or a secure play area for the nippers.
You can’t beat them for versatility. The blades can be tilted at any angle to provide privacy and protection from the sun. Close them up tight to seal out the rain. Flick them open them to enjoy your view and direct more airflow and natural light your way.
Half Price Shutters offer a choice of fixed blade or two-way closure shutters in four styles; fixed, hinged, bi-fold and sliding. They feel beautifully smooth to the touch and come in a range of hardwearing powder coated designer colours that create a serious wow factor.
Best of all, you can put these shutters in and sit back and relax for years, they need very little maintenance and are specifically engineered to withstand our harsh Aussie weather conditions
2. Folding Arm Awnings
Retractable folding arm outdoor awnings have got convenience covered. They’re easily retro-fitted – Half Price Shutters are able to do it with a minimum of fuss and cost.
The awnings sit completely concealed in a neat headbox until needed.
They can be operated manually or by remote control. Yes, like most high-tech devices these days, it now only takes the push of a button for the motorised awning arms to magically unfold horizontally and extend out a covering of waterproof, UV resistant acrylic fabric up to 4 metres out from the wall.
If you have children, you could add an awning to create a space for them to play outside without being exposed to harmful UV rays.
Positioning an awning to cover your pool-side is a very cool idea.
For an extra touch of outdoor luxury, you can add smart sun, wind and rain sensors. They automatically adjust the awning to follow the sun, adjust to rain and retract in strong winds, so you don’t have to lift a finger.
Those of you with a design eye are catered for too. Whether you want to make a statement with bold stripes or coordinate the colour of your awning to the exterior of your home, Half Price Shutter awnings are in a class of their own.
3. Track Guided Outdoor Blinds
Now you can blur the line between indoors and out with fashion forward Half Price Shutters patio blinds or outdoor shades.
Install them around your deck, patio or veranda. They take up very little space and cover vast areas in style, transforming your outdoor space into an elegant extension of your home that can be enjoyed all year round.
Simply lowering the blinds, provides privacy and protects you, your furniture and your guests from harsh winds and the glare of the sun. In summer you can party without pesky flies and mosquitoes gate crashing.
You can simply push the blinds up and pull them down manually or operate them with a remote control. They glide super smoothly and can be stopped at any point you like, thanks to specially designed tracks on either side.
When in the down position they can be locked to prevent the fabric from flapping, even in strong winds without the need for zippers or buckles.
Half Price Shutter track guided awnings come in a choice of hi-tech solar, PVC tinted or clear PVC materials. With an eye for design, you’ll be able to achieve a clean and sophisticated look that coordinates perfectly with your home’s facade.
