Indigo’s new homes: Kitting out the al fresco room

PUBLISHED: Sep 30, 2014

An essential room for Queensland living is the al fresco room. Bringing the outside in, the al fresco room enables you to make the most of your outdoor space – by really living in it.

With that in mind, Indigo’s huge range of brand new homes come with an al fresco room. In fact, the al fresco room is a bit of an Indigo speciality.

So, when you move into your brand new home, where do you start with kitting out your al fresco room?

Al fresco living: the basics

The first thing you’ll need to decide is what you want your al fresco room to be used for. Living? Dining? Entertaining? Games? Cooking? Chilling?

There are lots of options, but the most sensible place to start is: what are you going to sit on?

There are many businesses out there dedicated to offering loads of choice in al fresco furniture, designed to cope in the outdoors. Timber, wicker, aluminium and steel are popular choices for furniture materials.

Southport-based AlfrescO offers a good range, and is a good starting point for inspiration. They’ve got it all covered, from lounge suites to dining tables, shades and hammocks.

Cooking al fresco

Firing up the barbie is the most obvious place to start with your al fresco cooking. But that’s nothing new.

What is new, however, is the outdoor kitchen phenomenon. More and more Aussies are turning their outdoor living spaces into fully kitted out kitchens, complete with an oven approved for al fresco use.

Al fresco entertaining

One of the most popular choices for the al fresco area is to turn it into an entertainment space. What better area to entertain friends and host dinner parties than in the al fresco room?

There are endless options on the market for al fresco dining tables and chairs, offering you a second – and sure to be favourite – option for where to eat at home.
