With the all the wet weather we have experience this summer, many Australians have missed out on our beloved barbeques and outdoor entertaining which brings me to this months topic.

It’s nice to spend more time outside, so I thought this month I would talk about outdoor entertaining areas.

The best living spaces are those that flow from the inside to the outside, which will help make the most of ‘alfresco’ living which can be just as good as and a lot cheaper than extending your living room. Continuing with the same colour scheme inside and out with help blend both areas together thus creating a larger grand effect.

Many people incorporate outdoor kitchens and fireplaces in their designs so they can enjoy the space anytime of the year. Imagine in winter sitting around a cosy fireplace, enjoying a drink with friends.

Another fast growing trend in outdoor living is pizza ovens. Australia has the perfect climate for outdoor entertaining, and what better way to do it from a homemade pizza to a beautiful baked dinner. It is not only fun but never fails to impress your family or guests.

Pizza ovens can be wood fired, gas or electrical however the easiest one to use is the gas ovens. They come in different sizes and styles, so there is bound to be an oven to suit your needs. You can build the ovens in your designs or keep them as a free standing unit. 

You can purchase pizza oven stands and cabinets. This makes the oven portable so you can move it around if needed. The cabinet is handy to store your oven utensils etc.

So with a little forward planning, you too could create a beautiful indoor/outdoor oasis that you can enjoy all year round.
