The Bask Outdoor Living Systems louvred roof and drop-down screen available at HomePlus greatly enhanced this outdoor living project.

Building another room onto your home is not the cheapest thing to do. However, if you need more entertainment space, or indoor-outdoor flow, or an outdoor living room, then thankfully there's another way.

This home has been fully renovated with further living space added to the downstairs level. In addition, the rear outdoor area was levelled for day-to-day use.

The Bask louvre roof was a key aspect of the outdoor renovation, says Joanna Wellwood of HomePlus, where the outdoor living systems can be purchased.

"This gives the homeowners perfect indoor outdoor flow, through the huge sliding doors added onto the new living area," she says. "They also opted for a drop down screen on one side as a windbreak and for privacy from neighbours."

The system is finished in Dulux Silver Pearl Kinetic powdercoat colour to match the home's joinery.

"The drop-down screen and operation of the louvres are both controlled by a single remote. Opening the louvres lets in the warming winter sun, while closing them shades you from the summer sun and also cools the indoor rooms."
