Expert Comment: Outdoor Living Solutions For Spring

Announcement posted by Victory Curtains and Blinds 26 Aug 2021

With spring fast approaching and the weather beginning to warm up, Stuart Clark, home expert at www.victoryblinds.com.au shares his top tips for transitioning your living space outdoors. 

Install an awning

Bring a slice of European lifestyle to your backyard or patio with a folding arm awning. Not only are they a great way to stop direct sunlight entering through your windows and heating your home but they also shield your outdoor furniture and protect you from all elements including sunshine and rain.  

Exercise outdoors  

Working out outside is known to have many health benefits such as relieving stress. You could utilise your patio or grass area or exercise inside near double doors with garden views.  If you feel self conscious keeping fit this way, why not use a sunscreen for extra privacy and to filter the light. 


No outdoor area would be complete without some decorative features. Large plant pots or trough planters attached to a fence add design detail to an outdoor space without too much cost and commitment or set the mood just right with some fairy lights which mean you can stop outside for longer!

Create a BBQ area 

Create a chic sheltered barbeque area to enjoy cooking your food from on those long summer nights. Control light, views and ventilation in your BBQ area with plantation shutters which are durable and rust-resistant making them perfect for both internal and external use. 

Use practical storage 

Fold up chairs that can double as tables or furniture that can also store games and garden equipment are just some of the practical storage solutions you could use to ensure you have as much free space as possible this spring.
