BattensTimber battens won’t keep out the rain, but if shade is your goal, this is a stylish material to consider. The timber dining table and planter boxes in this Melbourne home’s outdoor entertaining area bring the look together.

8. Wooden slatsThis modern style of shade protection is right at home when integrated with a sleek contemporary property. For a structure like this, choose a durable wood to ensure many years of use. Make sure it is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to be sure of sustainable harvesting, and protection of wildlife and the people whose lives depends on the forest.

Add in large expanses of glass, as the owners have done here, so that both your alfreso area and living spaces are bathed with light. This arrangement also allows light to flow through to all adjoining rooms.
