How To Upgrade Your Outdoor Space

upgraded outdoors

Many families in Bendigo spend a lot of time in their outdoor areas, especially during summer. For many homeowners in Bendigo, having an alfresco in their backyard will always be a priority since it adds that ambience, practicality and glamour to their outdoor space.

Here are some tips to consider, especially if you want to upgrade your outdoor space into a stylish and luxurious area that you have always dreamed of:

  • Adding greenery to your alfresco

You can change the scenery in your outdoor area by adding pots of different sizes, with a variety of plants, trees, or shrubs. Greenery can change the atmosphere and ambience of your dull and boring wooden deck or paved area in your backyard.

  • Create multiple areas with different uses in your backyard

No matter the size of your outdoor space, you can create several areas with different uses. You can even dedicate a space for coffee and lunch dates, complete with dining tables and chairs.

If you have a large alfresco, you can create a dining area with a lounge space complete with a kitchen and a bar. Adding these elements will make your backyard more functional so you can enjoy it more often.

  • Adding stylish and durable furniture

Outdoor furniture can also add some pizzazz to your alfresco, but since it is exposed to the elements, you will need to choose the furniture that is designed and treated for outdoor conditions all year round. It may be essential to buy furniture covers to protect your investment from the sun and rain.

  • Accessorise your outdoor space

Your outdoor areas are an extension of your home, so you can always accessorise based on your taste and available materials in your house.  You can add outdoor rugs, cushions, and other popular accessories for your seating space.

It is also possible to add a table runner or centrepiece, depending on the current season. You may also add string lights because that can add dimensions to your space, especially during the evening. It gives that inviting feeling for both your guests and family.

  • Prioritise your privacy

Before upgrading your outdoor area, it is important to create a plan first, and that includes your privacy. You should always ensure that your outdoor space is not exposed to your neighbours. You do not want to spend your time in an area that is being overlooked by other people in your neighbourhood.

For this purpose, you can add fencing, plants, trellises, and other materials like outdoor blinds since this can create privacy in your outdoor space.

  • Make your outdoor area space for all seasons

It is best to use your outdoor space all year round and not just the peak months. We recommend that you add a fireplace, fire pit, or woo-fired pizza oven on your alfresco because this can make your area cosier and may even encourage you to spend more time outdoors during the cooler months of the year.
