Now that spring is in the air, it’s difficult to stay away from the beautiful outdoors. Not that we have much of a harsh winter to complain about anyway, like that of Europe for instance, but it’s still the season when we have the reason for making excuses to stay indoors. If you’re like most Aussies whose love of being in the company of nature is in their genes, you’d make the most of your home by creating the ideal alfresco area.
Since the love of BBQ is as much in our genes as that of nature, of course ensuring there’s the special area for cooking and eating is going to be your priority. You’d be surprised to find a wide range of complete outdoor kitchen units available for sale, easy to be installed, and ready to turn you into the perfect host. However, apart from the much needed BBQ and units, your makeover is incomplete without an outdoor fridge glass door.
Getting a bar fridge like this, it’s important to make your choice carefully, paying attention to efficiency, design, and aesthetics. An outdoor fridge glass door that’s eco-friendly, and can help you with saving up energy, is an investment that more than pays off eventually. Don’t forget to decide on what it is you want out of it, in terms of storage, and the ice box section, perfect for both drinks and frozen foods like ice cream, and frozen fruits and veggies.
To be able to make the most of this area, it first has to be comfortable, in the sense of evoking a connection of outdoors and indoors. What I mean by this is, apart from choosing the location strategically, right next to your home, it also has to be in the right size to provide the much-needed accommodation for comfy lounges, and dining table and chairs (they go where the food goes). Don’t be afraid to pile up on extra seating options, in the form of benches, and chairs, as well as on cushions – they always come in handy when you find yourself entertaining more guests.
Given the fact it’s the outdoors, it’s the area exposed to weather conditions. If you want to enjoy it year-round, it’s essential to consider covering it up with a cloth awning, to get the enjoyable shade in summer, or take it a step further by providing the perfect shelter for the rain, and cold, with well-insulated metal roofing, and the adequate heater. You can count on enhancing the feeling of warmth by the addition of a fancy rug, and some LED lighting fixtures. Enjoy!
