Outdoor Area Designs
Start your design from the floor on up
The floor you choose will largely depend on two things: whether your outdoor room is enclosed or open, and what style best suits your tastes. If your outdoor room is open, with no walls, doors, or windows, you’d might like to opt for hardwood or treated pine decking. Or you might prefer tiles or carpeting for that polished interior sunroom. If so, Wizard Home Improvements can provide you with the right under-flooring to suit your extension.
If you’d like an enclosed space that doubles as a sunroom or extension, you’ll need insulated walling panels. Supported by an internal framing system, our insulated wall panels offer both an insulated core and structural integrity. They’re crafted by our suppliers to make your home extension comfortable all year round, energy efficient and structurally sound. They’re also customisable. Just pick the treatment and colours that best suit your home.
Windows and doors for an enclosed room
If you do build an enclosed patio area, you’ll need to consider your windows and doors.
We only use the latest in glazing and framing materials, ensuring all our sunroom windows and glazed doors meet Australian energy efficiency and structural standards. They’ll help reduce your cooling costs in summer and your heating costs in winter, while adding value to the resale of your home.
Outdoor blinds for open spaces
Stylish and functional, outdoor blinds ensure any open space feels comfortable. You’ll get increased protection from bugs, insects and drafts, and protect your family and furnishings from the harsh afternoon sun. They also guarantee you control the level of privacy you feel when relaxing in your new space.

Choosing the right material is key to getting the most out of your investment

Insulated building materials
They’re the only way to go if you’re enclosing your outdoor space. But they’re ideal for open spaces, too. Energy efficient insulated roofing, helps keep your outdoor spaces warm during winter and cool during summer. The extra padding reduces the sound of heavy rain or hail. And the insulating materials help avoid condensation build-up, so your outdoor furniture remains mildew free.
