Outdoor Kitchens

We all know that a homely kitchen quickly becomes the go-to gathering space in our homes. Sure enough we enjoy spending time in there, but the need to escape the confines of the indoors (especially during and after the pandemic!) is a reality we all know. With the appliances, grills and gadgets available in the market nowadays, outdoor kitchens can be just as well equipped, stylish and functional as their indoor counterparts with the additional benefit of spending quality time outdoors.

Timber Cladding

Both commercial and residential venues are embracing timber wall cladding. We’ve seen a variety of inventive, attractive styles that give the exterior design a polished touch. Whether it be hardwood cladding or rustic timber laths, some use it to create a flawless minimalistic finish, while others use it to create a more contemporary, natural feel.

Privacy Screens for exterior designs

Spending quality time in one’s backyard is one of home living’s small pleasures. However, some properties lack the necessary privacy to utilize the outdoor living space to its full potential. Incorporating a simple timber lath screen into your outdoor design will not only give you the privacy you need, but also add a rustic, natural aesthetic appeal to your outdoor area.
