Alfresco living and bifold doors are taking the Perth area by storm. Here’s why.
If you have been living in the Perth area for long, you may have noticed that a lot of your friends and neighbours are creating or building alfresco living areas to take advantage of the ample sunshine and great evenings we have in Australia. As spring moves into summer, you may want to think seriously about your own alfresco living area.
Why Alfresco Living?
Alfresco living areas are popular now because the weather here is perfect for them. They are also popular because they are the single most cost-effective way to add living area to your home without spending a lot of money.
It costs a lot of money to add a second storey or an extension to your home. It has to be structurally sound like the rest of your home does. To build an alfresco living area, you can literally lay a slab of concrete and put an outdoor roof over it. There are plenty of other options, such as a screened-in porch, patio or turning a timber deck into an alfresco living area. You may even opt to use the ground as your floor, with no concrete, porch or patio.
The end result is that you have a place to entertain guests or enjoy family BBQ’s. If you like, you can even install more kitchen style equipment than a BBQ. We have seen many alfresco areas that even include games and LED TV’s.
Why a Bifold Door?
A bifold door is perfect for an alfresco area for two big reasons. First, it allows for a wide opening that virtually makes the alfresco area part of your home. Second, it helps integrate your home into its natural surroundings and vice-versa.
Whether you love to entertain guests or just want to relax with a few cold beverages in the cool of the evening, you will love an alfresco living area with a bifold door.
