As summer approaches, many of your entertainment and hosting activities move from indoors to outdoors. Backyards become party sites and playgrounds, as patios and decks become destination points. Now is the time to improve your outdoor living space. Think about how to maximize your exterior living and playing areas. Turning that concrete slab into an outdoor living area that is more inviting and functional.
Improve Your Outdoor Living Space
A beautiful and functional outdoor living space will enhance the enjoyment of any home. Imagine a well-landscaped lawn surrounding a beautifully accented stone or brick patio. You could add a winding pathway bordered by a matching low wall to the lead the way to all the fun.
An outdoor kitchen complete with a versatile cook center and all the necessary appliances can serve as the focal point for your outdoor entertainment. At night, with well-situated lighting, your outdoor kitchen can become a relaxing escape, a romantic oasis, or a wonderful place to converse with your guests.
Attached Covered or Screen Porches
Rain can be a frequent visitor in Eastern Pennsylvania. Consider bringing the outside in with a beautiful screened or covered porch instead of that open patio. Curl up in a comfortable chair as you smell and hear the comforting pitter patter of raindrops while you remain snug and comfortable undercover.
These versatile additions will add months to your outdoor relaxation and entertainment. In fact, screened porch areas that are essentially outside during the warmer months can also serve as warm, cozy dens with only a few adjustments as the temperature drops.
Detached Covered Shelters
If attaching a covered or screened porch to your existing home structure is impractical, you might consider a detached open-air, covered structure. As a place to escape, a free-standing structure offers the advantages of an attached open-air room with the same amenities. An outdoor kitchen, ample seating, and fireplace can be designed to maximize this exterior space.
Fireplaces and Seating
A fireplace may be incorporated into your covered or screened porch. Hence creating a warm and inviting ambiance during the cooler months. A beautifully designed fireplace serves as a focal point of your new addition. Furthermore providing a wet bar, refrigerator, seating, and perhaps an island for serving and eating will help to make the room fully functional.
Fans and Lighting
An overhead fan will help to keep your covered or screened living area cool and comfortable. Thus keeping the air moving on those warm and muggy days and nights. Additionally, fans can help to evacuate any cooking smoke and odors.
Incorporating adjustable lighting into your plan can allow you to set the mood for your outside living space. Supplementing your indoor lighting with landscape and pathway lighting can add interest to your view.
Design and Build
Get inspired to improve your outdoor living space. Take the time to visualize your ideal outdoor cooking, entertainment, and relaxation space. Consider what furnishings and accessories you might wish to include. What materials will complement your existing home structure?
