If you have unused areas around your house and have been contemplating on useful backyard ideas, consider building an alfresco or a patio to reclaim the idle space. An outdoor extension gives you so many benefits that it clearly makes a lot of sense to get the build going as soon as possible.


Increase Property Value

A patio is a great investment whose return you get to realize when you sell your property. Patios and alfrescos with an awesome landscape are among the best backyard ideas and features that potential buyers want in a new house. A well-constructed outdoor extension adds so much appeal to a property that potential buyers are willing to pay a premium for it.


Your Personal Chill Space

The value of alfrescos is not solely financial. Even if you do not decide to sell your property, the outdoor extension can give you endless hours of quiet enjoyment, by yourself or with family and friends. It’s the perfect place to relax after a hard day’s grind. It is an area of tranquility and solitude where you can calm yourself down and collect your thoughts.


Bring In the Outdoors or Bring Out the Indoors

Summer is the time for that great outdoor adventure. But the cost of travel and accommodation can burn a big hole through your wallet and put a damper on your travel plans. Why not plan a “staycation” in your alfresco? Your patio is just a few steps away from the outdoors, and only a few steps away from your front door. You can invite friends over and transform your backyard into the perfect communion with nature while still enjoying the creature comforts of your home.


Entertain Like a Pro

Can you think of a better venue to entertain friends and family than one with a front seat to Mother Nature? Your alfresco is an excellent place to entertain people, especially if you have limited space inside your house. Fire up the barbecue, put some beer in the esky and bring on the fun; you have all the ingredients for an outdoor party to end all outdoor parties!
