Everyone knows Aussies love the great outdoors.
No doubt about it – the long summer nights and crisp winter evenings are perfect for lounging around, entertaining family & friends and catching up with the neighbours over a beer.
Check out these four easy upgrades that will boost your home’s value and provide hours upon hours of outdoor enjoyment for years to come.
1 First up, add a Deck
First and foremost, the most important Aussie backyard addition is a deck. Once it’s in, you’ll never know how you did without it.
2. Backyard cabana, cubby or shed
A Backyard Cabana, cubby house or garden shed is another property addition that will add value for you both now and in the future.
Perfect for a whole range of different uses, Australian-made Melwood structures are designed to be completely council exempt and also come with a 10-year structural warranty!
Use it as a backyard bar, pool cabana, a huge, kids’ cubby house or even somewhere to showcase your art, the options are endless and the choice is yours!
3. Outdoor Entertaining area
Outdoor Entertaining Areas are becoming a big part of our lifestyles, and definitely a feature that buyers look for when purchasing a new home.
Whilst they may seem expensive to add at first, an outdoor eating area does add significant value to the sale price of your home, whilst providing an enjoyable space for you to spend quality time with family and friends.
And – the best part is – no matter how elaborate or simple your outdoor entertaining area is, it’s outdoors, it’s fun and your friends and family will love you for it!
4. Brazier / Pizza Oven
Crisp winter evenings with friends are made even better by the dancing flames and deep warmth of a Brazier or Pizza Oven.
Whether you go for freestanding or built-in, there are plenty of ways to make it happen, and you can rest assured knowing that you’ve added a warm and worthwhile investment to your property and your life.
Psst – Its a good idea to check your Local Council Website first, as some councils stipulate rules and regulations around the use of pizza ovens and open fires in residential areas.
