THE RIVER SHACK
Completing what is their tiniest makeover to date, the Three Birds Renovations trio transformed what was once a small simple property on the River into the ultimate weekender!
As proud partners of Three Birds Renovations, the Luxaflex® team were thrilled to be working with the talented trio again on a project such as the River Shack, as it was the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the unique Luxaflex® Window Fashions solutions in a fun and playful space.
One of the key themes throughout the River Shack makeover was small space living and how to create a massive impact, even in the tiniest rooms. As explained in ‘How to make tiny spaces look beautiful', creating dual-purpose areas, using bold colours and thinking outside of the box when selecting fixtures and finishes are important techniques to adopt when styling tiny spaces.
Check out the charming little River Shack and the various Luxaflex window covering solutions chosen for each space.
Luxaflex Evo Drop Awnings with Photon One Solar Powered Motor were the perfect addition to the River Shack deck. As mentioned in 'Trend flip: 5 things you can do to take the indoors OUT' blinds are often referred to as ‘window coverings’, but that doesn’t mean you have to limit their use to windows. Faced with the challenge of covering a large space where side guides or channels couldn’t be fitted, the Three Birds team opted for Evo Drop Awnings which provided them with a stylish solution that could be simply secured down to the floor with either locking bolts or straps.
Not only did these contemporary awnings provide the Three Birds team with a solution that offered serious flexibility for installation, they were also the perfect way to enclose the outdoor deck to create a beautiful extension of the indoor living space. The Evo sunscreen fabric also allows for privacy and protection from the elements, all without compromising the view of the River from the inside!
Durability and versatility were crucial for the kitchen servery window. This space needed a solution that would provide light and privacy control when closed and complete flexibility when open.
Luxaflex Aluminium Shutters were the perfect window covering for this application. Highly durable and suitable for internal and external applications, these Shutters can withstand even the harshest climates. Shutter louvres can be rotated 180 degrees to open or fully close in both directions, and the Bi-Fold style means they can be closed to provide privacy from neighbours or completely drawn back to one side to enjoy the added benefits of the servery.

Luxaflex Duette® Duo-Lite Shades with LiteRise operation were the window covering solution of choice for the living room and bedrooms in the River Shack. The innovative Duo-Lite design which teams two separate fabric panels (in either sheer, translucent or blockout fabric opacities) together to create one clever and seamless blind, fit the brief perfectly and this is why…
• Duette Duo-Lite Shades are extremely versatile and offer the ultimate light and privacy control. The Sheer fabric panel allows light to gently filter into the room and provides a clear view-through to the outdoors. What’s more, the Architella blockout fabric panel offers superior insulation with its honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction, as well as complete privacy.
• Pairing LiteRise operation with the Duette Duo-Lite Shades means blinds can be moved up, down or anywhere in between- all by hand! This cordless lifting system is also the ultimate child and pet-safe option.
• Spoilt for choice - the Luxaflex Duette Shades Fabric Collection consists of over 180 stunning fabric options in an assortment of colours, textures, sizes and opacities. The Black Sheer and Black Onyx fabric from the Architella Elan range work seamlessly together to create a beautiful bold finish that complements the quirky colour palette of the house.
As mentioned in ‘10 ways to make a small bedroom feel bigger’ your window coverings should be kept simple by ditching billowing curtains which intrude on space and choosing slim-line blinds instead. The decision to dress the caravan windows with Luxaflex Duette Shades shows that the Three Birds Renovations team have done exactly that! These innovative softshades feature a sleek and innovative hardware design, which together with the pleated Architella fabric allows shades to tightly stack away into the headrail. The bold colour choice for these blinds also adds to the striking finish of the charming little caravan.
