With the summer months ahead, it’s a great time to start thinking about creating the ultimate outdoor space either through a home renovation or new build. A well designed outdoor space can make the difference between a good home and a great home.
There’s nothing quite like relaxing in your Tauranga home outside on a nice warm summer day, or enjoying the company of friends and family in a sheltered outdoor area heated by a fire and tucked up in blankets.
Regardless if you want a simple addition to your outdoor space, an entire home renovation or if you’re building new and looking for ideas, read on and find out how to make the most of your backyard.
Deck it out and extend your living space
Whether you have a smaller space or an expansive garden, there are many ways to create an enjoyable outdoor space. One of the most common and effective ways is to build a deck which not only adds livable space and functionality, they also provide the perfect space for entertaining, BBQs and get-togethers.
A good deck will accentuate the space and allow for an easy flow from your home to outside. Decks themselves are the basis for any great outdoor space, and with a well-built deck in great design and high-quality materials, you can be sure you’ll have a space you want to spend time in. Our Tauranga deck builders construct desks that comply with all of the building codes and regulations.
A pergola is an entertainers dream
To take full advantage of the summer months and extended time outside in winter, add a well-designed pergola to your outdoor space. The main benefit is that they offer protection from the elements, while also making a space very beautiful. Pergolas tend to define spaces, and further extend your outdoor living space.
You might find your deck wonderful but want to accentuate your space further and also ensure you can take to shade on a sunny day too. Pergolas can be custom-built for your home with full design flexibility. The real magic happens when your friends and family come over and you can entertain in your outdoor oasis, under a beautiful pergola.
Develop your landscaping with a retaining wall
Retaining walls are often used as structural components to your outdoor area, especially if you need to contain soil. While they are the perfect functional solution to counteract the forces of gravity, they also act as an aesthetically pleasing decorative feature. They can enhance your property significantly, just by the visual appeal. A creative and well-designed retaining wall is an eye-catching and appealing bold feature for your backyard. They are typically constructed from timber, concrete, bricks, blocks, stone and steel. We build retaining walls for customers in Tauranga, including Papamoa and Mt Maunganui.
The finishing touches
Once the structural components of your outdoor space are complete, whether it be a deck, pergola, retaining wall, or a compilation of two or three, you can then finalise your space with an individual creative flair. Well placed lighting can completely change the atmosphere, comfortable and stylish furniture is extremely inviting, and decorative touches such as plants, cushions, umbrellas and rugs can make your space feel like a relaxing holiday destination, at home.
