Current architectural and design trends favour the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. Australian households are very lucky in this regard, with our pleasant climate, large homes, and wide open spaces perfect for outdoor living. Sydney is the epicentre of this new attitude to design and lifestyle, with more and more home-owners making a conscious decision to make greater use of their outdoor space in their outdoor entertaining areas.
There are lots of options available to you if you want to enjoy the great outdoors, from pergolas and patios through to decks and screened rooms. Here at Hi-Craft we specialise in outdoor living solutions and have something for all tastes and budgets. Rather than spending an exorbitant sum of money building an indoor extension to your home, why not choose to add an alfresco area where you can enjoy everything that Sydney has to offer and bring the outdoors in.
Over time, Sydney has developed its own style in response to the local climate and architecture. Most of the desirable homes in Sydney have alfresco extensions that allow residents to take advantage of everything that is unique to this great city. In fact, most real estate professionals are more than familiar with the value adding effect of alfresco extensions in the Sydney market. People living in Sydney want to enjoy the Sydney lifestyle, with great weather and outdoor living influencing all other design decisions.

You have a number of different options for roof shape, with gable, skillion, or dome shapes all available. You can even choose a combination of these shapes to make a customised solution that is unique to your needs. Our innovative alfresco areas can be added onto existing homes and structures or installed as stand-alone architectural features. This can be a great way to add value to your home and create something unique that inspires the imagination.
Here at Hi-Craft, you can also choose between a number of ceiling types, with our consultants on hand at all times to describe the differences in appearance and functionality between our insulated ceiling variations. Our three most used ceiling types are Gyprock, Glosswood and Ceilink, with each variation having its own unique aesthetic quality. Depending on the ceiling type and expected usage, you can choose downlighting and other extensions designed to complement and highlight your alfresco ceiling.
Design elements and lighting solutions for alfresco living
Once you’ve decided on basic design elements, you can choose to add fans and various lighting elements to your alfresco area extension. Ceiling fans will generate a comfortable breeze on otherwise still days, allowing you to enjoy your alfresco area on the hot days and warm summer nights that Sydney is so famous for. Our designers will help you come up with practical and beautiful lighting solutions that will make your alfresco area extension feel inviting and come alive.
Privacy screens for your alfresco area should also be considered, with these additions providing privacy and helping to shield less-desirable views. If you live in an area where there is a stiff breeze, the privacy screen can also act as a windbreak. If you utilise outdoor heating units during the winter months, privacy screens can also be used to slow the dissipation of heat and keep the area under your alfresco extension much warmer and cosier.
Attaching an alfresco area to your property is a great way to improve the value of your home and enhance its aesthetic appeal. It’s not all about money though, with outdoor living extensions also allowing you to expand your living space and improve your quality of life. Here at Hi-Craft, our great alfresco solutions are designed to make the most of the Sydney lifestyle.
