Thoughtful and modern design for easy living.

Better Built Homes' newest display, "The Macquarie 33" in Redbank Estate, is a contemporary and sophisticated design for entertaining and everyday living.

Among the home's many impressive features is the visually striking outdoor entertaining area, featuring a DecoPanel custom lazer-cut pergola. The pergola, finished DECO's new rust-look finish Earthy Ochre™, expands across the entire barbecue area, creating a cosy and very modern sanctuary to kick back and relax.

"We were looking for something different that also blended in with the area. North Richmond was previously farmland, so the use of a rust-coloured screen was a beautiful way to pay homage to a traditional rusted tin shed but kept the look modern and interesting", says Blaire Marchand, Better Built Homes Designer.

The surrounding bushland was a major inspiration for the custom screens, with the design and colour reflecting the ground under a gum tree. The screens were used for the alfresco pergola to help create an extension of the living areas and connect the outside with the inside - an important part of the quintessential Australian lifestyle.

"I love timeless, classic and elegant finishes - we're going to live in our homes for a long time and it's a big investment, so designing spaces that will stay current even after 10 years is really important to me." Blaire commented.

DECO's aluminium panels are lightweight and easy to install, and when finished in the Super Durable™ rust-look finish, they offer an authentic rusted appearance that is more flexible than real weathered steel without any hassle or maintenance.

"We're all busy and the last thing we want to do is come home and do more work on our homes - we want to enjoy them! Products that don't require maintenance but look stunning are a key aspect of my design style", says Blaire.

Blaire rates the durability of a product as one of the most important factors when designing outdoor spaces, especially in the Western Sydney heat. DECO's marine grade and UV resistant powder coating make it the ideal finishing for external applications in high UV and extreme locations.
