Sprucing Your Home For Spring
As we approach Spring, the weather starts to warm and we spend more time outside, you want somewhere nice to spend sunny afternoons. For those lunches that turn into afternoons and afternoons that turn into late nights, have a look below at what we offer that can help you enjoy your Spring and Summer.
Adding an Alfresco or Patio to your home is the perfect entertainment area for the hot weather.
You might be wondering what the difference is between an Alfresco and a Patio is, and which one is better suited to you. This will be dependent on your budget, timeline, and what you want to use the space for. Alfrescos are an extension onto your house, whereas patios can be built at any time without having to alter the structure of the house.
If you are after somewhere that can be used in winter and summer, it’s worth considering an alfresco. Adding outdoor blinds, an outdoor kitchen, and even a TV, can allow you to spend more time outside during the colder months, and enjoy it just as much as you do in summer.
Patios are more likely to be used only in summer as they are commonly built without shade or a roof.
Whatever your choice is, here are some good things to take into consideration when planning your Outdoor Renovation;
- Position for good lighting (natural for a patio, and natural and ceiling for an alfresco)
- What kind of flooring you want. Timber flooring is commonly used in Patios, whereas Alfrescos often utilise cement tiles or limestone.
- Are you planning to install or have a freestanding BBQ? This will need to be taken into consideration with spacing.
- Making it an area for all seasons. Do you want to include an outdoor fire or heater?
- Does the space flow from inside to outside?
Another important consideration is making sure that the materials used are Waterproof and Stainless steel which will withstand the winter weather. Although you can reduce the cost of your renovation by opting for other materials, this means your area can deteriorate faster.
A new outdoor entertainment area deserves a kitchen to complement it – not to mention the value a new kitchen can add to your home. Having a comfortable environment to cook as well as entertain guests is a must for spring and summer days.
