We are lucky to have a climate where we can make the most of the summer months living outdoor. We still need to be protected from the glare and heat of the sun. This client Sandi – has revitalised her back deck. She has a glorious outlook to a majestic gum tree at the bottom of the garden and loves to have an hour reading or relaxing away from the bustle of the household in her own quiet spot.

Sandi bought this very comfortable outdoor corner lounge and coffee table from Alfresco at Warners Bay, dressed it with a throw and a couple of cushions and added a colourful rug. Her soft furnishings are protected to one side by Aluminium plantation shutters with adjustable louvres- allowing for more light during the winter. To the front of the deck we installed retractable external blinds in a mesh fabric. The blinds greatly reduce the glare – making this a good reading space. The blinds enormously contribute to creating a cooler area. The mesh fabric gives a good view out to the garden and also provides protection for the furniture. Sandi has the perfect spot to relax this summer!
