For all those outdoor lovers, having an outdoor space to be proud of is essential. Whether you’re entertaining a big group of friends or just wanting time to relax in your own little oasis with your family, you can’t beat having a space you are able to enjoy no matter the event.

Here are some tips to make the most out of your outdoor space:

1) Be your own weatherman

Imagine being able to control the weather… well, you can! Create a space that you can use in rain, hail or shine, by having a versatile open close roof. Control sunlight, temperature and ventilation with a louvre opening roof system, and enjoy your outdoor space all year round, no matter the weather!

2) Cook outdoors

Who doesn’t love a BBQ? Limit the mess in your home by being able to cook outside. It’s also a great way to ensure everyone—even the cook—is able to be a part of the party. You can even look at investing in your own pizza oven to host pizza night!

3) Set the mood

It’s all about ambience! With decor that reflects your personality, set the mood you want. Think about furniture, spacing, textures and lighting. Add cushions, blankets, plants and lamps, candles or fairy/festoon lights that will make anyone who enters feel cosy and relaxed. It’s crazy that something so simple and small can make such a huge difference.

4) Have plenty of seating

If you are big on entertaining, making sure everyone has a place to hang out together in your outdoor space is essential. 

5) Create privacy

No one likes a peeping neighbour! Make your outdoor space feel private, almost like it is another room in your house. Having privacy is crucial to create a serene peaceful space for just you and your guests to relax without the worry that someone is watching. Consider adding plants and trees, or patio and pergola walls to your outdoor space.

6) Make sure it’s comfortable

Create an outdoor space you want to spend a lot of time in by making sure it’s comfortable! Inject a bit of personality and comfort into your outdoor surroundings with big comfy cushions and beautiful, functional furniture. Add fans or heaters to control the temperature and create shelter from the rain and scorching Sydney heat.

Remember your outdoor space is for you, make it a place you can enjoy every day no matter the weather or the occasion. It may become an area you never want to leave!
