    The ultimate alfresco design | Creating beautiful outdoor spaces for entertaining

    November 2, 2020  

    Alfresco areas are perfect for entertaining in the warmer months. They also extend your living area, doubling your dining space all while enjoying the great outdoors.

    Gather friends and family around the barbecue with an outdoor dining space that functions seamlessly with the rest of your backyard.

    Use glass bifolds to connect the spaces

    Glass doors create flow between the internal and external rooms and are visually pleasing. Stacking sliding doors and bi-folds maximise your outdoor space, giving you easy access back inside the house for those salad servers.

    Choose adaptable furniture

    If you like having people over, you’ll be  used to having people over, from small parties to huge gatherings. Unless you have the space for a 12-seater table, the best option is to find some outdoor furniture that can be easily moved around. Consider stacking chairs and an extendable table, as well as lightweight armchairs and soft furnishings to change the feel of your alfresco space as you require.

    Throw some shade

    It’s important to consider where the sun hits your alfresco space not just in the morning and afternoon, but also in the summer vs winter. Ideally, alfresco spaces are a shady haven in the summer, and work as a sun trap in the cooler months. External shutters and awnings can help change things around as the sun moves, and create privacy.

    Make it easy on yourself

    Tidying up after entertaining is annoying, but not as frustrating as cleaning up the bird droppings and endless dust before having everyone over. Make sure your alfresco area is easy to clean low-maintenance and weatherproof furniture. Dark wood and plastic or powder-coated steel tend to show up dirt and dust less than lighter colours.
