Opening up your backyard area is a thrilling prospect, but it’s important to get the job done properly. 

Employing experienced firm Custom Outdoor Living will ensure even the grandest of outdoor extension ideas can come to life.

If you’re thinking about extending your outdoor space, here are some ideas that could shine.

Get toasty

Why not extend your backyard by installing an outdoor fireplace?

You can select materials that blend seamlessly with your home’s existing design. For one thing, brick-lined fireplaces with rich hues of rust and terracotta add a delightful, homely charm. 

This is a good way to create a new area for family time, without having to completely redesign your yard space.

Add a verandah

Known as pergolas in other necks of the woods, a verandah is a freestanding structure favoured by many Melburnians for the instant charm it affords.

Adding a verandah is a smart way to extend your outdoor space. For instance, if you’ve currently got a patio with timber decking immediately by your home’s rear doors, you might be considering ways to incorporate the rest of your yard space.

If intensive gardening isn’t your thing, adding a verandah to the centre of your yard could be a great option.

Extend your patio

Perhaps the very thing bugging you is your patio. In such a case, getting an experienced building professional to draft up design options to extend it could be worth considering.

Given that you’ve already got part of the structure in place, why not make the most of what you’ve got and add more area for seating, dining or just general lounging around?

When extending a patio, it’s not just the decking to consider. It’s worth bearing in mind that by adding significant overhead cover, you’ll be able to utilise the space much more frequently.
