Designing you a better lifestyle

Stunning alfrescos, patios and decks at affordable prices

Everybody wants to spend a lot of time in the outdoors. Especially those of us blessed with an awesome Perth landscape, there's a lot of reasons why people may want to step outside.

A recent trend has also seen the rise in popularity of backyard expansions among Aussie homeowners, which makes it the perfect opportunity to spruce up your backyard.

Patio Living’s specially designed Solar Pergola is the perfect solution to any client who wants to enjoy the best of the winter sun but at the same time shade their alfresco area from the harsh rays of the summer.

While we currently have ourselves preoccupied on bunkering down for the winter, a few of us are already preparing (or to be more accurate, longing for) the return of the warmer months and being able to once again head outside to entertain family and friends.

If you’re a homeowner you probably know how overbearing we can get about our property. We do every little thing that we can to take care of or homes that sometimes we overlook how some of the things we do can actually end up doing more bad than good. If you’re concerned about what you may be doing that might actually be harmful to your patio, read on.

When we hear the word “pergola” a vision of a shaded structure alongside a home’s exterior comes to mind. One can immediately imagine the idea of lounging outside the house; open, airy, and being able to bask in the beauty of the outdoors from the comforts of one’s home.

While it does paint a pretty picture, some people still aren’t sold with the idea. Does it really do much in terms of establishing your home’s look? Do you really get much shade if there aren’t any walls or a fully-covered roof structure? Will it do anything for the value of my home?
