Ariane and her partner David, from Netherby, South Australia, wanted to use their outdoor entertaining space all year round. Avid entertainers, a functional outdoor entertaining area that protected themselves, their young children, and their guests from the elements, was a must.
“We had a lovely backyard we wanted to take full advantage of throughout all the seasons,” Ariane says.
Although they already had a pergola over their decked area, Ariane and David were finding that their entertaining space was not usable all year round – as it was still subject to the harsh Australian climate and the bugs and insects that come along with it.
The family opted for SmartTrack Power blinds, which are sleek, modern, and simple—the premium option for those wanting complete protection and the convenience of modern technology. SmartTrack blinds are a ‘smarter’ option that easily integrate with Smart Home Hubs and Smartphone Apps. This means that you can control your blinds even when you’re not home, with a touch of a button.
Due to the couples desire to gain shade and privacy without losing visibility of the yard, our team recommended Bella Vista Fabric in Ebony, which paired with the Nero frame complements the existing patio perfectly. The Bella Vista still has a level of visibility that allows Ariane to keep an eye on her kids playing in the backyard, giving her peace of mind. With this addition, the home truly achieves a modern contemporary feel.
So impressed with how their new outdoor blinds doubled their living space, and completely transformed their deck, Ariane and David would highly recommend Australian Outdoor Living to others.
“With the blinds pulled down, you wouldn’t know you’re experiencing a 40-degree day outside… We are using it for everyday living and entertaining,” Ariane says.
“Hands down the Australian Outdoor Living product was the best we found in the marketplace—the service we received was excellent.”
