Whether you prefer a beach, country, rustic or modern style, an enclosed outdoor space creates an extra room in your home for whatever purpose to suit your lifestyle.
By enclosing an outdoor patio, porch, verandah or ‘stoep’ with shutters you can extend your outdoor lifestyle into the cooler months. They offer great thermal insulation and their flexibility allows you to open up an area completely with a simple swing or slide of the shutter panels or to close the panels and louvres for protection from the wind, rain and cold.
Ideal for controlling ventilation and light they assist in creating a comfortable space for socialising with friends and family or some quiet time with a good book or a snooze in the sun.
Indoor braais, even with a good chimney draw, can make an area smell smokey, with the smell of burning wood or cooking meat permeating furnishings and any fabric window dressing, the solution is to have shutters installed to provide maximum ventilation – opening up to assimilate an outdoor braai when the weather permits and they obviously do not absorb the unavoidable smells of a braai.
Here are some photographs of AMERICAN shutters’® installations to provide you with the inspiration to create an enclosed area that adds space, style and value to your home.
