A well-designed outdoor living space can be the perfect place to spend your time relaxing and unwinding from day-to-day life. If you’re planning to host a party, relax outdoors, or simply enjoy the great weather outside, there are a few outdoor living space must-haves your home needs to get the most out of your backyard all year long.
Here are 5 essential outdoor living space features your home needs.
A Covered Patio
Outdoor living spaces can feel incomplete without a patio. Considering the temperatures throughout the summers here in Houston, we know a covered patio is an absolute must to keep cool during those sweltering triple-digit days. Ceiling fan, too? Yes, please! Whether you want to relax outside or entertain friends, covered patios come in all shapes and sizes – from small outdoor kitchen patios with custom grills to large covered porches perfect for hosting summer barbecues with friends and family!
The ultimate must-have outdoor accessory? A built-in grill! What better way to close out the workday than an outdoor dinner with the family on the patio
Firepits and built-in fireplaces are essential to backyard living spaces because nothing says summertime like s’mores around the fire with the kiddos. Plus, half the joy of being outdoors no matter the time of year is enjoying a fire or two! Just don’t forget the marshmallows and skewers!
In Texas, it’s almost always warm enough to splash around in the pool or hot tub, and comfortable enough to relax with the family on the back patio, no matter the season. Here at Dunn & Stone Builders, we offer a variety of pool options for our clients to choose from, all under one loan with the build of their new home. We build free-form pools, geometric pools and in-ground pools. We even design and build pools with spas & resort-style options with tanning ledges, water descents, bubblers and fire bowls. Yes, fire bowls. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Last but not least, when shopping for outdoor furniture, it needs to be durable and have an outdoor finish (to withstand the effects of weather). Why not add some design style with a patio set? Bistro sets are perfect for small patios, while a sectional can provide plenty of space for everyone to hang out.
Here at Dunn & Stone Builders, we can help you turn your backyard into a beautiful escape with outdoor features you and your family are sure to enjoy for many years to come. For more on our outdoor living designs, visit our Pool and Outdoor Living Gallery.
