Summer is just around the corner, so it is time to get your home and outdoor areas entertainment ready! An Australian summer feels incomplete without gatherings around the barbeque, but insects and mosquitoes often put a dampener on festivities. Here are a few tips to get your home and patio summer entertainment ready.

Enclose your patio area

Patio areas are fantastic for outdoor entertaining, letting you entertain outdoors sheltered from the sun. They add a significant amount of usable space that merges the indoors and outdoors and are great for barbeques and weekend lunches. But in summer you can get swarmed with bugs outdoors and may find serious benefits from enclosing your patio area.

Not only will enclosing your patio area keep insects out, but it is also perfect for deflecting the summer heat, wind and glare. Our retractable blinds offer a measurable difference in terms of comfort and energy savings, offering up to 99% protection from harmful U.V rays.

Dust off the barbeque

A backyard barbeque is a staple in many Australian homes. You need to consider the best position for your barbeque, on a flat area away from any hanging plants. If your barbeque is on your patio, ensure that your patio area is properly sealed to avoid stains.

Outdoor furniture

Planning on entertaining guests during summer? Then you need the perfect outdoor furniture for your guests can gather around the barbeque and cheese platters. The best option is an outdoor setting that will last in harsh outdoor conditions, as well as some additional outdoor chairs to relax in.

Install retractable fly screens

Installing fly screens throughout your home can save you money in summer as you rely less on your air conditioner. Retractable fly screens will stop insects from pestering your summer guests, while still letting the beautiful fresh air into your home and entertainment areas.
