How to Create the Ultimate Outdoor Retreat

Your outdoor space should be an extension of your home, creating a sanctuary for you to relax and enjoy all year round. To help you create the ultimate outdoor retreat we have put together some of our favourite tips featuring Knotwood – a wood finish, powder-coated aluminium product that allows you to have the beauty and warmth of wood without the ongoing maintenance.

1. Create a private hideaway

Give your outdoor space a sense of enclosure and privacy with slatted privacy screens. Privacy screens are extremely versatile and can also be used to conceal unsightly water tanks, pumps, garbage bins and much more. Not only are they practical, but the slat system also allows you to have the flexibility to choose thickness and spacing depending on aesthetics and your needs.

2. Use natural tones and textures

Extend the cosy, comfortable atmosphere of your inside living space to the outdoors by opting for neutral colour palettes and wood grain textures. Utilising natural hues and timber help to create a seamless transition from indoor living to the backyard. Whether you have a coastal, traditional or modern-style home, the extensive Knotwood colour range will ensure you have your ideal match.

3. Enjoy the outdoors through rain or shine

Whether it’s an outdoor, covered room, patio or pergola, creating a sheltered outdoor space effortlessly makes for a more inviting backyard hideaway while also allowing for a wide range of furniture and furnishings.

Keep your outdoor area low maintenance, without sacrificing design or function, by utilising products such as Knotwood. It requires only the occasional clean with soap and water. Your outdoor space will look and feel like the ultimate outdoor retreat throughout all the seasons.
