Creating the Perfect Alfresco Entertaining

The alfresco area of this home flows beautifully from the kitchen and living area. With plenty of privacy around the pool and pockets of greenery and landscaping, the space is very enticing.

Combining details from the home’s front façade, the selection of Blackbutt timber and white painted brick, ties this outdoor living area to the overall aesthetics of the home's exterior.

Additionally, connecting the interior elements of the home to the alfresco dining has been executed to perfection. Making a statement in both entertaining areas, the curved rangehoods feature prominently, while the selection of Staron Solid Surface in Bright White flows from the interior joinery to the outdoor benchtop. Not only does the Staron Solid Surface connect back to kitchen elements, but it also adds an additional white surface option of a durable nature for the outdoor environment.

Adding protection from the elements, the addition of a large motorised external blind allows for the area to remain as a functional part of the home on those dreary days.

When considering Staron Solid Surface for exterior areas, attention to detail is required. Expansion and contraction in products are greater in outdoor environments and allowances for movement will need to be taken into consideration. In addition, the selection of exterior grade substrates will be required for long term performance of joinery. 

Known for its high performance in benchtop applications, Staron also offers an excellent surface solution for doors and drawers. Staron is an easy to clean surface for these highly exposed outdoor applications and is impervious to the issues associated with high moisture.

The inclusion of an insulation jacket around the barbecue is required to protect benchtops and joinery, assisting the long-term durability necessary for barbecue installations, with the addition of venting behind the barbecue to inhibit exposure of heat to the benchtop when cooking with the hood down.

Staron Solid Surfaces is Group 1S Fire rated to C/VM2 (NZ) Staron is not a flammable product, however eliminating excessive heat will protect the application and achieve ultimate long-term performance.
