Summer is on the way – and what better way to spend it then entertaining family and friends in your new alfresco.
The alfresco is an integral part of the summer landscape and allows you to dine and socialise in style on those warm Perth nights. Craig Gemmill (Managing Director at Gemmill Homes) explains what makes a good alfresco when he says:
“As summer approaches we’re finding many of our customers are seeking the ultimate alfresco – and the stand out designs are those with seamless integration between family living and the outdoors. Energy efficiency, maximising your total area and creating the perfect entertaining/relaxing space is what we do best.”
We have some stand out alfresco designs in the Tahoe (Ellenbrook, as pictured above), the Wornum (Wandi) and the Coronado (Harrisdale).
If you’re not quite ready to build again but would like to add an alfresco to your existing home, Gemmill Home Improvements are ready to help you.

Considering adding a swimming pool to your yard can be a great way to stay cool in summer, but it could also help add value to your home, if you get it right.
Most people immediately picture a large swimming pool taking up most of the back yard, surrounded by lush tropical plants. However, there are so many different shapes, styles, designs and sizes available that you could easily feature a swimming pool without impacting on the amount of space you have available.
Family-sized swimming pools are ideal if you have kids, or if you love to entertain during summer. While you will need a decent sized backyard to have a pool this size installed, it can make a great feature for any home. This is especially true if you couple your swimming pool design with an outdoor entertaining area.
It’s completely up to you whether you opt for a traditional chlorinated pool or a salt-chlorinated pool, but your choice can affect the type of filter and pump system you use.
Kidney-shaped lagoon style pools can make it feel as though you’ve installed a tropical oasis in your own back yard. You can choose to edge the pool using stone for that authentic lagoon touch, if you wish. Surround these with lush green plants and ferns and you have an ideal way to relax during the warmer months.
If you prefer, you can incorporate a spa into your swimming pool that could be ideal for a romantic night together, or perhaps just as a way to unwind after work.
As house-block sizes become smaller, the popularity of lap pools is increasing rapidly. Much easier to maintain and clean, these small pools are ideal alongside an alfresco entertaining area, or alongside a narrow villa courtyard area.
Generally, these swimming pools are much longer than they are wide, but they can still be ideal for cooling down on those hot summer days. They can also provide a stunning feature when designed to be viewed just outside a family room or living room.
Regardless of what type of swimming pool you choose to add to your home, it’s important to consider the safety implications. Pool fencing, designed to keep young children away from pool and reduce the risk of drowning, is an important aspect of your design.
While you still want to receive the full benefit of safety from your pool fencing, you should still think about how best to turn that fence into some kind of feature that will mesh with your own yard’s theme or design.
Some of the frameless glass barriers can look spectacular alongside a lap pool, while a much larger pool might suit the traditional powder-coated aluminium pool fencing options in a range of colours to suit the rest of your home.
The options are enormous, but one thing is sure: a swimming pool can be an excellent addition to any home. Just be sure you take the time to consider your needs and usage before you settle on the design for you.
