Outdoor rooms and outdoor kitchens along with verandahs, decks, pergolas, patios, cabanas and gazebos provide us with a space to extend our living into the outdoors.
Relaxed, informal entertaining these days is a very popular way to catch up with family and friends. You would be hard pressed to find an Australian home that does not have some form of outdoor living space.
An additional outdoor space could be as simple as a verandah, patio or porch, providing somewhere to relax outside in the fresh air while overhead cover shelters you from harsh sun or rain. Whereas a pool deck provides an area for teenagers to hang out or parents to keep a close eye on their little ones in the pool. A pergola will give you a balance of natural light and shade. Outdoor rooms can incorporate a living and dining space along with a BBQ and fridge, some even with a complete outdoor kitchen. Often a TV is included with outdoor lounges, ceiling fans, heaters or maybe even a fire place. Outdoor rooms have become very popular and can provide another space for entertaining all year round. The design and features can be as simplistic or sophisticated as your space and budget allows.
Verandahs were an important part of traditional Australian Heritage homes and still are today. They not only create additional living space but add style and value to your home while provide protection from sun, wind and rain. While all types of outdoor livings spaces, along with carports, garden sheds and fences were once constructed of timber, these days there are a myriad of materials and combinations of materials used to create structures to suit the architecture of your home, along with your personal style and budget. There are companies that may specialise in a particular material such as timber and once such company is Kamelot Constructions in Bakers Hill, Perth WA. They pride themselves in high standard, guaranteed workmanship using quality treated timbers that will not only be long lasting but will enhance your lifestyle and the look of your home.
Regardless of the style of your home, whether it is old or new, wherever you are in Australia you will find a licensed professional builder, carpenter, bricklayer, renderer or tradesperson to build your entertaining space, fence, deck, terrace, carport, cubby house or shed.
