Relax Under A Timber Manama

A timber manama is simply perfect for lazy days of relaxation, entertaining friends, or quality family time. Adding shade to the structure, timber beams and laths create a beautiful pergola that allow just enough sunlight to filter through to the deck to form a perfect balance of sunlight and shade.

Install An Outdoor Kitchen

If you are an avid grill master or just love to entertain in your garden, then an outdoor kitchen can do wonders for any backyard space. Outdoor kitchens can range from an elaborate set-up with plenty seating, serving and cooking areas to a simple BBQ, table and sink. But be it big or small, an outdoor kitchen can be just as efficient as the one inside your home.

Create A Bigger Seating Area

While this will depend on the size of your garden, having a large seating area is one way to ensure guests are seated comfortably. Perfect for the winter season, this will be a great opportunity to have a get-together with your close friends or family.

Add Benches

Why not defy convention and give your home a look that will impress your visitors, even though this may be a rare practice in the majority of Dubai homes? The flexibility in design makes it a fantastic addition to gardens with more room. It can then function as a design element in addition to improving the appearance.

Light It Up

Proper lighting is a constant component of a good home design. Dark areas shouldn’t be present in your home because they can be unsightly and present a tripping hazard for family members or guests who want to go outside at night.

Revamp an Old Wall

We have seen countless examples of beautiful outdoor living spaces being lost by strange-looking walls that lack any sense of confidence. This is why covering your outdoor structures with wall cladding is always smart. External cladding panels will conceal any damage already present on your walls and guard against weather-related wall design deterioration.
