My Favorite Design Secret...

March 7, 2022

Have you heard the phrase ‘work smarter, not harder?’

In design, it’s imperative to find the intersection between working strategically while best using a space. 

Over the past few years, I’ve seen a shift from solid roof patio covers or open wood lattice patio covers to something a bit more… modern. Enter automated louvered patio covers. Absolutely transformational and an immediate value add to any home, here’s why we love it— 

  • They’re easy to use:  automated louvered patio covers can be controlled from your phone via an app. You can open and close the patio cover with the click of a button—when they are closed, this patio cover is solid, meaning no rain can come through. 
  • Ensures your furniture is safe — this type of patio cover blocks out rain and direct sunshine. 
  • Extends your outdoor patio season by allowing you to stay dry—rain or shine. There’s no need for umbrellas or extra sun protection. 
  • Versatility: this approach to patio covers can be customized, suiting all sorts of roof types, beams, and screens.  

We’re pretty smitten when it comes to automated louvered patio covers—see them in the wild below!
