With the weather still set to summer what better way to enjoy those longer days then in the perfect outdoor entertaining area?! If entertaining is your thing there is so many ways to give your outdoor area that wow factor without breaking the bank. First things first an under roofline alfresco is a must for a clean transition from the indoors out. Depending on your house plan & lay out a great way to emphasize your outdoor area is to have large glazed doors & windows leading out to your outdoor space this will not only create a grand & very user friendly entrance to your alfresco area but it will also allow for great ample light indoors. If your wanting to add a little more space to your outdoor area continue out past the roofline eg. tiling a section continuing from your alfresco slab is a great way to create a larger space. And of course if the budget allows for the cooks who love to entertain a built-in outdoor kitchen is the piece de resistance. Carefully selected outdoor furniture also makes a huge difference, what is your main use outside do you need a dining table & chairs or are you going for the more comfort and relaxation of an outdoor lounge? Maybe you’re lucky enough to have ample room for both but make sure you purchase pieces that are the right size for the space, not to big which makes everything a squeeze, just like Goldilocks try everything out for comfort and measure for your space before you buy. And last but not least again don’t forget to think of your electrical & lighting and what your needs are for your outdoor space do you need a power point & where, are you going to wall mount a TV, would you like a ceiling fan, or built in Bluetooth speakers just to name a few things to consider.
