INCLUDING A STOEP IN AN EXTERIOR FACADE
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.
