How To Entertain Guests In Style

10 questions you should ask when engaging in a building designer

There’s nothing better than hosting the perfect dinner party. Being able to show off your home is a great feeling, especially when you’ve got an outdoor entertaining area that will ‘wow’ your guests.

It can be even more satisfying when you get lucky and the weather really turns it on. Sitting outside to eat on a warm evening with good friends – it doesn’t get much better than that!

Of course, there’s always the chance the weather will ruin your plans. No one wants to be forced inside by wind, rain and freezing temperatures. Likewise, insects always have the potential to ruin your night.

Luckily for you, there’s a way to prevent insects and inclement weather forcing you inside. Installing a set of outdoor blinds would mean total control over the environment in your outdoor space.

Choose what’s right for you

Most companies will let you choose between a range of styles and colours, meaning you’ll likely be able to find a style of blind that fits with the aesthetic of your home.

If you still want to be able to appreciate the view of your backyard, you can always choose clear or tinted café style blinds. They’ll do a great job of insulating your outdoor area from the cold weather, as well as protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays.

Clear and tinted outdoor blinds are often free-hanging, but they can be fastened to hooks installed on the ground, or at a height of your choice.

If you want complete and total protection from both insects and the weather outside, you’d be better off choosing a set of shade blinds.

These blinds can be operated either manually or remotely, and they come with the added option of an in-built guide track system.

A guide track system uses tracks fixed to your wall or verandah post to guide the blinds down to your desired height.

Since this system eliminates gaps, it’s also great at keeping those annoying creepy crawlies out of your personal space!

Whichever style of blind you choose, you’ll be comfortable in the knowledge that you have total control over your environment – rain, hail or shine.
