Get The Best of Summer Living

With temperatures soaring across the country, Australia is well-and-truly getting stuck into “those summer nightz” - to quote John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. And we’ve seen federal politics heating up as well - with plenty of people drawing parallels with HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. So here is your definitive guide to this season’s very own home improvement royalty - a summer night wouldn’t be complete without the royal family of home remodels and outdoor living! 

The King: a majestic outdoor patio

The court is in session and his majesty is receiving guests for an elaborate feast, an extraordinary culinary endeavour known to the privileged few simply as “a BBQ” . Patios and decks are fast becoming the season’s hottest trend for home improvement. Not only do they significantly enhance the value of a property, these outdoor spaces are remarkably practical and growing diversity in the construction field means they can be adapted to suit a wider range of budgets.

The Queen: a luxurious lighting system

What could complement the King better than some carefully-designed luminescence? Sure, summer suns set fairly late in the evening but that’s no reason to stop the party and miss out of that lovely afterdark cool change. Fairylights, hanging lanterns, table candles, solar torches - there’s a wealth of gems to impress your visitors.

The Jester: keeping cool with a pool

An in-built swimming pool too pricey and space-consuming? With a little creative genius, and a little silliness thrown in to-boot, you’ll find a solution to your hot weather woes. A paddling pool, a sprinkler, or a well-placed hose will get guests feeling like giddy children in no time! Just keep an eye on those pesky water-restrictions: if your antics grow unacceptable to the court, you’ll be sent packing.

The Peasant: those darn mosquitoes

Sure, nobody likes them much but they’re an essential part of the season’s ecosystem and the Kingdom of Summer just wouldn’t be the same without these blood-sucking plebs. There’s lots you can do to declare class warfare on their population, however: burn coils or tiki torches to keep them at bay or consider decking out your deck or patio with insect-proof screens, which can be custom-made to suit all requirements - just ask one of Service Central’s home improvement professionals.
