Your home is your sanctuary. It is the space you escape to after a long day working, where you relax and unwind or host friends and family. It’s where you cook delicious meals, cosy up with a good book, and watch your favourite films.
These activities can be best enjoyed in our warmer months in a beautiful outdoor space, and with summer steadily approaching, creating the perfect outdoor area for your home is on the agenda of must-dos. We provide four ways you can create a haven for you and your guests to enjoy for years to come.
Install An Outdoor Ceiling Fan
One of the most enjoyable pastimes during the warmer months is to sit on the veranda in the shade with a cold one in hand, the sounds of nature, and a good read. With usual Australian temperatures reaching staggering heights at the best of times, this relaxing and unwinding can be made even more enjoyable with the addition of an outdoor ceiling fan.
Amazingly, these cooling solutions are extremely low on energy consumption, allowing you hours of blissful outside relaxation. They also double up as an excellent bug repellent, shooing away all the pesky flies that appear over the summer. Some models even come equipped with an LED light, making them an ideal addition for nighttime spent barbequing or absorbing fresh air.
Landscape Lighting – A Game Changer
Landscape lighting in your yard is an excellent addition to creating a dynamic outdoor area during nighttime. Many people put loads of effort into landscaping their yards ‒ planting lush gardens and building exquisite outdoor features. However, with the void of proper lighting, the entertainment tends to head indoors once the sun sets. Landscape lighting can be a game-changer for this, providing a well-lit outdoor area for you and your guests to continue enjoying the warm evening air no matter the hour.
Outdoor lighting fixtures can draw attention to special features, highlighting the beauty of your garden’s elements even once the sun sets. If you have an outdoor water feature, landscape lighting can work to illuminate it beautifully.
Outdoor TV Mount
If you have an alfresco area, what better way to amp up this social space than with an outdoor TV mount? Picture firing up your barbeque, sizzling your steaks and sitting down to your favourite summer sports surrounded by mates and the sounds of nature’s nightlife.
An outdoor TV mount means you no longer need to miss out on the action while cooking, your guests won’t have to hang in limbo over the threshold between the indoor and outdoor TV to catch the score, and it adds an element of fun to your gatherings.
Smart Technology As An Addition
Home automation systems can greatly improve you and your guests’ experience. Smart technology spans audio, video and network coverage for an enhanced living experience.
In addition to your TV mount, add audio technology to your outdoor area to enjoy your favourite music. It is easily controllable and set up with exceptional audio quality. These outdoor speakers are weather-resistant to enjoy all your indoor music outdoors without missing a beat. Ultimately, your home will become the designated venue over the summer.
