Clever, liveable outdoor entertaining spaces allow you to make the most out of the whole home, not just the indoor space. Outdoor living is perfect for climates such as Queensland, where you spend a substantial amount of time enjoying the weather outdoors.
Outdoor entertaining is part of Australian culture and lifestyle, turning your outdoor space into an extension of your home is an essential inclusion to add value.
Here are 3 ways to enhance your outdoor entertaining space:
Gardening & landscaping
When considering your outdoor area, you want it to be attractive but low maintenance. Less really is more and less upkeep of a garden means more relaxation time.
Adding a deck essentially adds a whole extra room for you to enjoy outdoors which can provide a high return on investment. Patios can be open, partially or fully enclosed to suit all weather conditions for year round entertaining.
When considering your outdoor space, depending on the size of the area you have to work with, you should consider separating areas or creating zones. Have a distinct dining area incorporating an outdoor kitchen or BBQ, and a separate lounge area where you can sit, relax and read a book will make the spaces feel more like extra rooms in the house that people can envisage using on a regular basis, rather than just an outdoor area.
Pergolas cover the deck or patio area, meaning you can use your outdoor space whatever the weather. The Queensland sun is notoriously harsh so having some shade will mean you can enjoy your outdoor area on the hottest of days, and when it rains your pergola will keep you dry and you’ll still be able to enjoy your outdoor space.
A well-designed, functional outdoor space adds more value to your home than it costs.
