Must-have Elements for the Perfect Alfresco Area

People living in Adelaide and Melbourne love outdoor entertaining. This is why an outdoor entertainment area or alfresco area is often considered essential in Aussie homes. An outdoor entertainment area will not only provide additional space where you can enjoy yourself with friends and family, but it’s also a fun way to express your personality. You may wonder how to create the perfect alfresco space in your home. Many elements are essential for your alfresco area to be the perfect place that you want it to be. Here are some unique alfresco ideas by the creative architects here at Louvre House, to turn your outdoor space into a convenient, functional, and stylish area.

Proper Shading Is a Must

Proper shading is necessary if you want to spend a large chunk of your summer in your new alfresco area. A pergola with a roof, a louvre opening roof system, or a pavilion are all great ideas for reducing the effect of the sun. They are also great when you want protection from light rain in Melbourne or Adelaide’s changeable weather.

Add Comfort to Your Space

Another alfresco idea is to add heating and cooling options to your outdoor entertainment area. These include outdoor heaters and misters, to help maintain a suitable temperature no matter what the weather is outside. Other items for added comfort include rugs, throws and soft seat cushions.

Think Green

Lush greenery is pleasant to the eye and makes an excellent addition when turning your alfresco area into the perfect space. You can, for example, decorate the area with some blossoms and creepers, like ivy.

Lighting Makes a Big Difference

When you’re looking to beautify your outdoor entertainment area during the evening, it’s all about the lighting in the alfresco space. Stay away from bright white lights because they will ruin the outdoor ambience of your alfresco. Instead, consider warm toned fairy lights or solar powered LEDs.
