An Oasis for Long Weekends at Home: Outdoor Living for Your Whole Home Remodel

hansonpoolWith the approach of a long weekend and summer around the corner, it’s a good time to take a look at how successfully your home embraces outdoor living. Our professional design team works with you to create stunning, welcoming and functional outdoor living spaces for your whole home remodel.

Here are some elements to consider:

Space Planning
Many outdoor living spaces in San Diego include a pool. With a pool as the centerpiece of your space, a professional designer can help you determine the best placement for other essentials of outdoor living, such as an outdoor kitchen area, bar seating and more. The expansive outdoor living area shown above includes several distinct areas for grilling/cooking, eating, swimming, changing and lounging.

If you plan to entertain often in your outdoor living area, designing for easy navigation between your interior and exterior is critical. Determine the size of your grill and other tools you may elect to include in your outdoor kitchen area based on how often you entertain and the size of your typical party. You may want to include a bar area in addition to generous and diverse seating areas. The bar area in this outdoor space includes a TV screen, ideal for enjoying a baseball game or a nighttime movie together.

Space should be planned with different types of weather in mind, accommodating for sun and shade, day and nighttime enjoyment. A unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals can help guide you through the process of imagining how you will use your space and what design elements will most enhance your lifestyle and the beauty and value of your home.

Integrate your natural environment with the planning of your whole home remodel and you can enjoy every long weekend at home with an outdoor area that feels like a luxurious vacation retreat!
