When it comes to outdoor entertaining, no one does it like a Perth household! This is why an alfresco is a must-have feature in a Perth home.
An alfresco area is more than just a space to entertain. It is the backdrop where so many memories will be written with family and loved ones. An alfresco is a unique space to express your sense of style and personality.
Are you thinking to create or renovating your alfresco area? Rome wasn’t built in a day, and careful thought and planning can make it a comfortable and stylish oasis. There are a few things to keep in mind to bring it to life, and to ensure it stands out.
If having a well-designed alfresco area has always been in your dreams, make sure you check out our 5 must-have elements for creating an amazing alfresco.
Make sure you are strategic with your design
While it’s normal to get into the nitty-gritty details and to start thinking about what furniture will best suit your space, it’s important to have a strategy before you begin. Imagine the hassle of creating a beautiful alfresco area only to realise that serving food isn’t practical, due to the location.
At One Stop Patio Shop, we look at your goals, we analyse the space we are working with and ensure practical elements are considered in the design phase.
No one wants to spend their entire summer’s day with no room to hide from the scorching sun! We recommend including large umbrellas, pergolas or pavilions to block out the sun when the summer heat gets too hot! Adequate shade can also keep you dry when there is a bit of rain too!
Add a few luxurious comforts
When things get too hot or too cold, we recommend installing cooling and heating options to maintain an optimal temperature regardless of the season, temperature or weather. Soft seat cushions and rugs can add to the ambience and comfort too. Picture this – a cold winter’s night, set outside in the alfresco of your Perth home, and you get to snuggle in your rugs, staying toasty as you share stories with your family! Now that’s a scene we can toast to.
Nothing feels more like the outdoors than a splash of lush greenery. Believe it or not, you won’t need a huge garden space to pull this off. Decorating the space with creepers and blossoms, whether real or fake, can give your alfresco a luscious upgrade.
A well-illuminated space can make or break an alfresco area. Lights are essential to give your alfresco some much-needed brightness while simultaneously beautifying the space during the night-time. We recommend steering clear of bright white lights.
