Your must-have DIY outdoor entertainment room

Apart from all the late night BBQ’s and days basking in the sun, a well-built deck will add priceless value to your home. It is the cheapest way to add an extra living space without raising the roof. It may seem like a big undertaking but all you need is some wood and a decent design…or of course a carpenter.

Dig a little deeper into the process of building a deck and you’ll find that you are spoilt for choice with design and material ideas. Typically, a durable hardwood is used and constructed in a traditional horizontal or diagonal design. Environmentally friendly composite decking options are black bean and silver gum.

If you like to entertain, make sure you install a worthy BBQ and provide lots of seating options. A mini bar fridge would be ultra handy if you have the room and resources. Fire places are a massive novelty as the sun sets and stars begin to appear. Think about all your outdoor lighting options too. Wall lights, garden lights and spot lights all combine to create  a magical mood in your outside entertainment zone. Stainless steel lights are the best option in order to survive all weather conditions and climates.

Depending on your backyard borders, screens may be a fantastic addition to enable privacy from the neighbours. Shade cloth, wood or even bamboo create the perfect screen that is both practicle and aesthetically pleasing.
