It may still feel like winter, but we’re coming up on the warmer months, so it’s the perfect time to renovate your tired outdoor area, or to incorporate an outdoor entertainment spot in your new home. For those who love to stay outside or entertain all year round, there are many ways to ensure you keep warm (or cool!) in your outdoor area – plus, many sustainable and stylish options to furnish and deck out your space.

Take a look at some of these creative solutions:

Outdoor kitchens

Alfresco kitchens are becoming incredibly popular in Australia, and are exactly as they sound – kitchens on your patio or alfresco area. They are the perfect space to entertain in, and mean you don’t have to keep ducking in and out of the house if you have guests sitting outside. Custom builders can incorporate all the traditional mod-cons of an indoor kitchen: stovetop, oven, fridge or bar fridge, as well as some extras that are perfect for the outdoors – a pizza oven, bbq and even dishwasher to make the clean-up a little smoother.

Entertainment space for the whole family

Rip up that old paving and think about investing in some sustainable decking, or if you have a spot perfect for an alfresco patio, get a roof or pergola installed so that you and your family can enjoy the great outdoors all year round. Installing a kitchen is the ideal way to not only ease up the pressures of entertaining, but to ensure your family can enjoy meals together inside and outside – or so that the teenagers can have their friends over without taking over your kitchen! Installing a kitchen and jazzing up your outdoor space can be the perfect solution for families with older kids: no more fighting over the kitchen, and an added space for the teens – or the parents – to escape to!

Outdoor dining areas

Getting creative with your outdoor space isn’t just about getting the decking right and installing the perfect outdoor kitchen. It’s also about utilising your space effectively, choosing the right colours and themes, and of course – designing an amazing spot or two for you and guests to dine on the patio, under the stars, or have a drink by the pool. The options are limitless when it comes to planning the perfect outdoor dining area: combine a classic table and chairs setting with a separate space for comfy outdoor lounges, think about incorporating bold colours to set off your design and the natural setting, and ask your builder or designer about sustainable and eco-friendly materials.
