Outdoor Living Spaces to Enhance Your Lifestyle0
Summer is coming and we’ll soon be spending more time in our outdoor living spaces – entertaining, relaxing and enjoying the great Hunter weather. There are so many improvements available to help you make the most of your outdoor living areas – how does a new deck or pergola sound? An integrated BBQ or outdoor kitchen for Sunday lunch? Or pizza oven to help get your party started? The outdoor living area has really become another room in the Australian home and our fabulous climate lets us make the most of it.
You’ll need to think about the orientation of your space, as well as prevailing winds and the view you would like to have from your outdoor area. Decking can extend your living space into the garden. Make sure you talk with your patio and decking specialist to ensure you get the finish that works perfectly in your home.
To be functional year-round, an outdoor area often needs to be covered. Here, there are plenty of options, from integrated roofing, to sails or awnings in fixed or retractable styles or, for areas where sun is desirable, perhaps a stylish roofless pergola. Louvres in glass or timber can protect from the elements.
Would you like to screen out your neighbours or maybe just shade your home from the sun? Privacy screens come in a range of stylish and popular colours to suit every house and are custom made to suit your requirements.
Even in these chillier months you can be relaxing outside. There are outdoor fireplaces available to suit every outdoor living space. Consult a local outdoor specialist to find the best option for your home and to ensure installation is hassle-free – and doesn’t blow your budget.
