Aluminum Shutters were essential to creating this stunning indoor outdoor dining space in this Sydney home.  The owners are keen entertainers often throwing cocktail parties and dinner parties for their friends and family, however previously they had been restricted to a more formal indoor setting, or around the pool for a more casual feel.  What they really wanted to achieve was a place where they could entertain with that outside feel but be able to be protected from the hot sun in summer and safeguard against inclement weather.  

Enclosing their outdoor patio with stylish aluminum shutters achieved the perfect outdoor indoor entertaining spot.  The Aluminum shutters were installed as accordion style multi-folds so they create a number of different look and feels.  When closed the aluminum shutters created a more "indoorsy" look with moveable blades that could be adjusted to allow for a warm and inviting flow of air or breeze.  When fully retracted and folded neatly against the walls, the aluminium shutters blurred the indoor and and outdoor space with dinner and cocktails being served in full view of the pool, which is stunning by day, and truly glamorous by night.

The owners also chose to enclose with aluminium shutters not only because of their stylish appearance and outdoor durability, but because they were able to be closed and locked. The security rated aluminium shutters ensured the owners were comfortable styling the room with expensive furniture, cookware, stereo equipment and decorative ornaments.

Secure, stylish, easy to clean, and flexible, Weatherwell Elite Aluminum Shutters were the vital element to this outdoor indoor room success!
