IN­CLUD­ING A STOEP IN AN EX­TE­RIOR FA­CADE

House and Leisure Before and After - - LIGHTING -

Pro­ject man­ager Lizette Visser gives point­ers: 1. De­cide what the pur­pose of the stoep will be as this will de­ter­mine the fi­nal size. 2. Take the over­all ar­chi­tec­tural aes­thetic of the house into con­sid­er­a­tion. 3. Think about the weather con­di­tions at dif­fer­ent times of the day and in dif­fer­ent sea­sons of the year to de­ter­mine where the stoep should go. You don’t want to sit in the blaz­ing sum­mer af­ter­noon sun, or to have to tie down your chairs when the wind comes up. 4. Out­door floor cov­er­ings need to be durable, easy to keep clean and non-slip, es­pe­cially near a pool.
