Get your outdoor area summer ready with a pergola, verandah or patio.
There’s nothing that Aussies love more than spending time outdoors. Luckily for us the time of year that we do it most is just around the corner!
Yes, that’s right… Summer is on its way; and with summer comes plenty of sun and warm weather.
Here at Australian Outdoor Living we are all for summer and would love to help you prepare your outdoor space with one of our custom-designed pergolas, verandahs or patios.
Stay with us as we give you a quick rundown of the range and go through why we think a pergola, verandah or patio is the perfect outdoor home improvement to help you get ready for summer.
A quick rundown of the range
At Australian Outdoor Living we have an extensive range of verandah and patio designs. So many in fact, that we’re confident we’ve got one to suit the look you’re after.
Our range is available in either timber or steel construction and comes in a variety of roofing, guttering and colour options to suit the look and style of your home.
The Flat range is at it says in the title. A flat roof that is simplistic and minimalistic in design, giving you shelter anywhere around your home.
The Gable range allows you to create a light, airy and spacious atmosphere, with the pitched roof giving your space a luxurious and open feel.
The Open range reflects more of a traditional pergola, allowing the sun to shine through.
Finally, the Gazebo range can be a functional addition to any backyard. You can position it anywhere, making it perfect if you want to highlight an especially impressive view point. The Gazebo range can be designed to mirror the roof line of your home.
The Hip range is perfect for those living in high wind areas and is exceptionally strong and durable. This range is flexible to suit all homes and also mirrors the roof line of your home.
If you’re still not sure which design suits you, contact us today and speak to one of our friendly design consultants!
Stay in the shade with a pergola, verandah or patio
With summer comes sun, and with that sun comes the heat. Unfortunately the sun and heat can be a little too harsh at times, forcing us to retreat to the shade or even indoors.
That’s where a pergola, verandah or patio comes in, helping you avoid the sun and enjoy your outdoor area.
A nice area shaded by a pergola, verandah or patio gives you the flexibility of entertaining outside. You can have a relaxing BBQ or change it up a bit and just spend time outdoors.
Where should I position my pergola, verandah or patio?
Having your pergola in the right position can make all the difference when it comes to getting your backyard ready for summer.
Building your pergola so that it comes off your house can really create a nice transition from the inside of your house to the outdoors.
Or better yet if you have a pool, position your pergola or patio close to the pool so you can relax while keeping an eye on the kids.
Enhance your pergola, verandah or patio with outdoor blinds
If a pergola, verandah or patio isn’t enough to get your backyard ready for summer, why not further enhance your outdoor space with a set of quality outdoor blinds?
Outdoor blinds can be a great home improvement when getting your outdoor space ready for summer.
Adding outdoor blindsto a pergola, verandah or patio can really finish off your area. They are UV resistant, giving you even more protection from the harsh summer sun.
Outdoor blinds come in automatic or manual operating systems, so whether your pergola, verandah or patio is connected to your house or a standalone structure, there is an option for you.
Our blinds also come in a variety of colours, ensuring they don’t look out of place when installed on your outdoor structure.
Get set for summer!
Did you know that outdoor home improvements can take up to a month to complete? If you require council approval, it can sometimes take even longer.
If you’ve been thinking about investing in a set of outdoor blinds, roller shutters, artificial grass, a pergola, verandah, timber deck or even a swimming pool, there’s no better time than now.
