One of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing home builders, Met­ri­con, of­fers home de­signs that in­te­grate mul­ti­ple out­door liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment zones to em­brace Queens­land’s cli­mate and life­style.

Met­ri­con design direc­tor Adrian Pop­ple said out­door liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ment zones such as decks, porches and pa­tios were in high de­mand and part of a grow­ing trend where they fea­tured as an ex­ten­sion of a home’s in­door space.

“In Queens­land, we love the out­doors and we love en­ter­tain­ing; this makes out­door rooms or al­fresco liv­ing re­ally pop­u­lar in our home de­signs,” he said.

“Our cus­tomers are de­mand­ing more con­ve­niences from the in­doors for these ar­eas, in­clud­ing kitchens with cook­ing is­lands, pizza ovens, re­frig­er­a­tors and sinks. They are also adding the types of fur­nish­ing and ac­ces­sories you would see in any room in­side the house, such as rugs and cush­ions – made with weather-re­sis­tant ma­te­ri­als.”

Mr Pop­ple said the out­door spa­ces at Met­ri­con’s dis­play homes across Queens­land were great ex­am­ples of this pop­u­lar trend and how it could be im­ple­mented to per­fec­tion.

“For ex­am­ple, the De­signer by Met­ri­con Den­ver at Jim­boomba Woods, Jim­boomba in­cor­po­rates an out­door cook­ing, din­ing and lounge area com­plete with a fire­place, all over­look­ing a pool,” he said.

“The De­signer by Met­ri­con Franklin at Coomera Re­treat, Up­per Coomera blurs the lines be­tween in­door and out­door liv­ing with bi­fold doors open­ing to an out­door din­ing room with views through to a pool and gazebo.

“And Sig­na­ture by Met­ri­con Merid­ian at Cova, Hope Is­land fea­tures a grand out­door room on the ground floor, bor­dered by a stun­ning in­fin­ity pool, while the bal­cony off the main bed­room has been trans­formed into an out­door sit­ting room.”

Mr Pop­ple said Met­ri­con’s home de­signs of­fered the flex­i­bil­ity to add out­door zones.
