Verandas Adelaide Residents Can Have Built (Pergolas + Alfresco)
Entertaining outdoors, at home has become part of Adelaide’s culture. New homes are being built with Alfresco areas standard on the plans and people across particularly Adelaide’s southern, eastern and western suburbs are giving their back garden a makeover with fresh landscaping ideas incorporating an outdoor entertaining area under a verandah, pergola or Alfresco complete with lighting, fans, decking or paving.
Most verandas Adelaide residents have built use natural timber, stained or painted to match in with the gardens colour scheme and theme. The traditional gable style is still popular, but if you’re after a more modern look, people are choosing a flat roof with smooth ceiling underneath, echoing the Alfresco style. Whether you’re after a steel roof or to let in the maximum amount of light while reflecting heat from the Sun there’s the range of polycarbonate sheeting that comes with a range of colours and profiles.
Paving under verandas is by far the most popular flooring choice, with large format natural stone pavers leading the way, especially if there’s warm colour tone accents near by as you can see in this image.
Sealing your pavers as soon as possible after having them laid is highly recommended to keep them looking great for years and avoid becoming stained. Red wine, fats and oils from a BBQ even wet leaves can leave stains that can become impossible to remove if left on un-sealed pavers.
If you have rooms with doors and, or windows facing out under the verandah, allowing as much light through can be advantageous.
Even on dull, Winter days, you’ll have lot’s of light to make the area bright and breezy, and with the quality polycarbonate roofing available, the heat from the Sun’s harsh rays during Summer is reflected away.
Add some lighting, dining table and chairs, you’re all set to enjoy spending more time outdoors. Oh and don’t forget the BBQ!
For that truly modern look, creating a room with a view, add an Alfresco area to the side of your house.
Rendered columns to match the house, add low voltage ceiling lights plus a fan and you have a seamless transition inside out!
Dine with the family or entertain with friend all year round with the bonus of unobtrusive views to your newly landscaped back garden.
