Extend your home with an outdoor pergola

If you love nothing more than entertaining friends, family and other VIPs in your home, then a sleek and stylish outdoor pergola from Australian Outdoor Living is the perfect way to add chic and style to your outdoor entertaining area.

It’s only natural to want to share the things we are most proud of with our friends, family and the people we love.

For many house-proud Aussies, the thing we cherish most is our home.

Your humble abode, dwelling space, a cave to call your own – however you choose to put it, it’s the product of many hours of dedicated time and hard work, and it is something to call your own.

But when it comes to writing the invitation list for your next DIY dinner party, function or event, the last thing you need is to feel limited by the amount of space in your home.

Let’s face it, even the biggest dining table to seat and feed eight is an uncomfortable squeeze when you have nine mouths to feed.

Avoid a dreaded cull of your list of invitees by extending your home with an outdoor pergola!

At Australian Outdoor Living, our extensive range of outdoor pergolas features world class design and award-winning functionality.

Slick, sleek and aesthetically pleasing, we make outdoor pergolas to extend the living area, ideal for the home of any keen entertainer.

With an outdoor pergola, add two, three or even four to your invite list completely stress-free!

Summer entertaining made easy

In summer, Aussies love to take it slow. We make the most of the balmy weather, longer days and relaxed ‘tude that is shared by all.

Blessed with the ideal climate, summer is a time for Australians to make the most of the great outdoors.

Summer is the time of year that we are most social.

With the winter blues melted away, it’s during the summer months that we wish to spend time together.

Whether it is with your family, friends or neighbours, an outdoor pergola is the perfect place to entertain.

Take it from us at Australian Outdoor Living, an outdoor pergola is a must-have addition to your summer entertaining repertoire!

Enjoy dinner, or dine at lunchtime with a summer breeze gently whipping at your hair.

Entertain with ease and make the most of the summer weather.

If you are dining during the day, make sure you are well equipped with mosquito spray and sunscreen.

Or if you fancy a twilight fiesta, crack a cold beer and throw a few chops on the Barbie.

Why not invite your neighbours, friends and family around for a laid-back catch up?

To make light work of the after-party clean-up, line the pergola table with a durable cloth.

Dispose of all litter in order to keep your backyard clean and tidy. Oh, and when you have finished cooking, wipe down the BBQ grill and hotplate with some lemon and steel wool.

It’s true, you can really make the most of summer entertaining with an outdoor pergola!
