Summertime Vibes: Outdoor Living for Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home

Today is the official first day of summer, a natural time to take a look at how successfully your home embraces outdoor living. With longer days and more relaxed schedules, you’ll be inspired to expand the enjoyment of your new home or whole home remodel from the inside out.

Here are some elements to consider:

Space Planning
The more planning in the beginning of a design, the smoother the process, and the more satisfying the result. Give some thought to how you will most often use your outdoor space and if you are dreaming about adding a significant element such as a pool or an outdoor kitchen. Our professional designers help you determine the elements and functionality you need to arrive at the most effective layout.

Expansive Entertaining
Easy navigation between your interior and exterior is essential when you entertain outdoors. And, while you’ll want a distinct look for your outdoor space, it’s important that it relates visually with your interior. 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.

Adaptable Comfort
When your plan with different types of weather in mind, you can get maximum enjoyment from your space. Accommodate for sun and shade and for day and nighttime enjoyment by integrating elements such as a louvered roof, retractable shades, heat and lighting, or fireplaces and firepits.

Enjoy the long days of summer in your own backyard! A unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals can help guide you through the process of imagining how you will use your outdoor living space and what design elements will most enhance your lifestyle and the beauty and value of your home.
