Entertaining Made Easy
There is no better feeling than enjoying a delicious meal in your backyard with friends and family. Pergola Land offers a range of Alfresco design options that ensure that you enjoy the outdoors all-year-round, regardless of the season.
Building an Alfresco with Pergola Land is simple. Our structures have insulated panels that accommodate extra-long spans, reducing the need for support posts and beams. The roofing also comes as a complete set, including the roof, ceiling, and insulation. This ensures less handling of materials, reduced construction time and a seamless finish.
You can also enhance the appearance of your alfresco by installing LED lights. Here, the wiring is run through the ducts in the supporting beams.
Here are five ways to make your alfresco entertainment friendly.
1 Make your Outdoors Functional
Adding features such as an outdoor kitchen or a BBQ is an excellent way of making your backyard more entertaining. Your outdoor kitchen can include a bar fridge for storing food and drinks. If you don’t fancy an outdoor kitchen, you can make up for it by making your indoor kitchen easily accessible to your backyard.
2 Accessorise your Alfresco
Installing LED lighting allows you to use your alfresco anytime, day, or night. We also recommend adding a ceiling fan, as it keeps the air circulating, reducing the heat even more during the warmer months. Also, don’t forget to make room for an outdoor heater, as it can come in handy during the colder seasons.
3 Upgrade old Furniture
If you want to create an alfresco that is cosy and inviting, investing in new furniture is a good idea. Some of the options to consider include bench-style tables, couches, wicker chairs, and chaise lounges. If your current furniture is still in good shape, consider adding bright cushions or an interesting centre peice for your table. Even adding wall art will give your Alfresco a fresh look.
4 Invest in Outdoor Décor
Outdoor décor can significantly improve the ambience of your alfresco area. For instance, you can install a feature pendant light above the main table to give the space a bright and welcoming feel. If you love nature, you can incorporate flowers and pot plants to add a natural feel to your alfresco area. Adding fairy lights is also a great way to add personality (and extra light) to your Outdoor Living Space.
5 Get Ready!
Don’t wait until it’s party time to check whether everything is working.
If you have a BBQ grill, you can season it to prevent rust. This ensures stress-free cooking when the party arrives. Also, check for any leaks and damages that could compromise the safety of the BBQ.
Lastly, ensure that the lights and other accessories are in prime working condition. You don’t want a situation where poor lighting forces you to end a party prematurely. Routine check-ups also allow you to spot items that may need repairs, such as old painting and torn furniture.
