1. Spring Clean

After a the storms of Spring, it’s time to pressure clean your tiles, bricks, pavers, and decking.

This will wash away all the dirt and dust, cobwebs, rubbish and the garden debris that may have been blown in.

Instantly add some shine and brighten up the alfresco space by washing any glass doors and windows.

Do a safety check on your gas bottle for any leaks and degrease your barbeque if it’s looking a little grimy.

Remember your outdoor furniture and give it a wipe down with a damp rag to get rid of dirt and cobwebs.

2. Create climate control

By planning ahead you can have climate control at your fingertips and keep yourself and your guests cool and comfortable.

For the latest in shade control, seek out LouvreTec Super Roof which is motorized and even has an inbuilt rain sensor and LED lighting option. That means you have full control to stay dry if an unexpected shower of rain passes over. Louvres can be adjusted for comfort by allowing just enough sunlight and heat in when you want it.

The addition of overhead outdoor fans can add welcome relief by circulating air on hot summer evenings.

3. The final touches

Now that your alfresco area is clean and sparkling, it’s time to add your own final touches.

For evening ambience try some music, candles, fairy lights and lanterns, with wall mirrors, artwork, fresh flowers and floor rugs being a creative touch.

A couch with scatter cushions and a throw rug makes for a homely feel and a comfy spot to relax, for conversation or just for some quiet time.
