This project, completed by Nick Jolley, head designer at Patio Living, came to fruition because homeowners Daryl and Jane weren’t able to enjoy their existing outdoor space as much as they wanted.

Relaxing by the pool was only a possibility in perfect weather conditions as the outdoor area was largely unprotected from the sun or rain, and the furniture was often wet or damaged. the family had almost abandoned the idea of using it at all. however, thanks to Patio Living’s high level of dedication and expertise, the clients now have an outdoor alfresco area that’s the envy of all their friends!

The team at Patio Living visited the home on numerous occasions and advised the clients on which design and materials would work best. gradually, the dream became a concept and the concept became a series of 3d colour drawings that allowed the clients to visualise how the transformation would look once completed.

The much-neglected area has now become an oasis in which to relax or entertain. A generous blackbutt deck was constructed, which sits under a cantilevered alfresco roof with a contrasting white-lined ceiling.

The stud-framed walls have been texture-coated to match the walls of the home. Patio Living helped to design some aluminium shutters that provide privacy from the neighbours, while allowing optimum ventilation and letting in plenty of light. retained planters were also designed to bring abundant natural colour and life into the space. downlights were installed to create the perfect ambience in the evening.
