Going Alfresco: Add Style to Your Outdoor Area

Aug 19, 2014

One of the more popular home renovations in Perth is to increase living space by creating a beautiful alfresco area.

Perth summers are unbearably hot during the day, but they often give way to gorgeous nights that beg for an outdoor BBQ and a few cold beverages. A lot of people in the Perth area are choosing to turn their decks, patios and courtyards into alfresco areas. This increases quality of life and it also increases living space. Consequently, homes with alfresco dining areas are actually beginning to fetch higher levels of demand and higher prices on the property market.

The word “alfresco” is appropriate for Perth’s mediterranean climate. It is an Italian word that translates to “in the fresh air.” Many of our clients have chosen to take this comparison even further, installing a pizza oven in their alfresco areas.

The alfresco living area has come a long way over the last few years. The backyard has been shrinking, but home areas are increasing. If an alfresco area is done correctly, it incorporates the outdoor area into the home seamlessly, turning what was once just the backyard or patio into a part of the home’s living area. While Australians may not have as much backyard to use anymore, we have become more proficient at using the space that we do have.

From Basic to Elegant

Alfresco spaces can be as simple as adding a deck or increasing patio space that is directly connected to your living or family room and adding furniture. It can also be more elegant, incorporating features such as high-end furniture, the aforementioned pizza oven or a widescreen TV. Many people even have ceiling fans, potted plants and a spa in their alfresco areas.
