Louvered roof

Why a louvered roof provides optimal comfort

On a summer’s day it’s delightful to enjoy the sun on your terrace all day long. However, sitting in the sun all the time is not always desirable; especially on a hot summer’s day. If you don’t have a veranda, you will unfortunately look for another place to cool down. In fact, before you know it, you’ll be inside with an ice-cold glass of water to cool down, and not enjoying the much awaited sunshine. With the right veranda you can enjoy sitting outside, without any problems. You will enjoy optimum comfort, especially with a louvered roof. In this blog we tell you why.

The advantages of a louvered roof at a glance

Before we list the advantages for you, we will start with the operation of a louvered roof. It functions the same as the blinds that you know in your home: open the panels to let in light and close them to keep the sun out. The same principle also applies to a louvered roof. With a louvered roof you can enjoy all the flexibility with regard to light, atmosphere and air circulation on your terrace.

Plus point 1/Advantage 1: You are in control

With the push of a button on the remote control, you are completely in control. Take the Sky Garden Pinela for example. With this veranda you can play with the incidence of light yourself, because you can tilt the panels into the position you want. Another important point is because the panels can be opened, the warm air does not get trapped under the roof. If you choose to close the panels, you will be dry and completely in the shade. In short: you are in control of your outdoor life. Literally.

Plus point 2/Advantage 2: Open space

We can also imagine that you would like to have the option of creating a completely open space on your terrace. In that case, the Pinela Deluxe from Sky Garden offers a solution. With this louvered roof it is not either…or, but both…and. You can tilt the panels as well as slide them completely to the side. For example, you can choose a covered terrace, an open space, or play with light.

Plus point 3/Advantage 3: Maintain optimal light in the house

With the purchase of a veranda, you’ll want to be outside for longer. However, at the same time you want to maintain optimal light inside your home. Depending on where you place the veranda, it can happen that the light entering your home is blocked. And that’s a shame. That is why a louvered roof offers a solution. You can determine the incidence of light yourself at all times, this way your home stays light inside.

Plus point 4/Advantage 4: You determine the atmosphere

The incidence of light influences the atmosphere of your terrace. With a louvered roof you can influence the ambiance. You decide in which angle you place the panels. Models such as the Pinela louvered roofs are adjustable up to an angle of 120 degrees. This allows you to follow the sun optimally and determine how light your space is. (Tip: don’t lose sight of your company…)

From louvered roof to luxury garden room

Glass sliding doors

A louvered roof can be expanded. For example, with glass sliding doors. When you close one or two sides, you can enjoy your terrace even in bad weather. And you are protected from the wind. When you place glass sliding doors on all sides, you can transform the veranda into a true garden room. At the same time, you retain optimal flexibility. Slide the sliding glass doors to one side and enjoy the open space. Or slide them smoothly closed to enjoy protection against precipitation and wind. In addition, the heat stays inside.


The sun slowly setting, the beautiful shades of colour that the sky shows. Slowly you see how it gets dark. And before you know it you can count the stars. Nothing is more beautiful than enjoying a long summer evening. That is why you can expand the louvered roof with (dimmable) LED lighting strips. This creates the optimal ambiance during such a beautiful summer evening. Bring on those sultry summer evenings.


You may recognize yourself in the following situation. You are in good company enjoying the summer evening. It cools down slowly. At a certain point it has cooled down so much that you are forced to put a jumper on. Annoying, because it just takes you out of the flow of the wonderful evening. That is why you can equip the louvered roof with heaters. This way you can enjoy a warm evening without interruption. Even during colder months.
