How to protect your outdoor space from harsh weather

Normally you don’t see me making over a garden, but here I am helping Charlie create an outdoor room.

A really important aspect of an outdoor space is protection - this entertaining area off the pool should be used all year round, so a straight-drop awning will offer privacy and protection from the elements.

This cable guided model is versatile because it doesn’t need to be fixed to a wall and the bottom rail keeps the fabric taut and minimises movement in windy conditions.

While the durable fabric protects you from the heat and UV rays, you can also use that sunshine to power the awning with a small solar cell.

This straight-drop awning has a sleek, modern look enhanced with the matching bottom rail and there are dozens of colours to choose from.

That means there’s something to go with just about any exterior paint colour and provides the perfect base for my décor choices.

The new series of Selling Houses Australia continues Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Lifestyle.
