Outdoor Living Space Use
One of the first things to consider when designing an outdoor living space is the intended use of the space.
Will it be primarily used for entertaining guests, or will it be a more private space for relaxation?
Will it be used year-round or only during certain seasons?
These questions can help guide decisions about the layout and features of the space.
In summer, will you need a pergola, umbrella, or other source of shade?
In colder months, heating features such as fire pits or outdoor heaters may be needed to extend the use of the outdoor living space.
Elements of the Outdoor Living Space
When it comes to the features of an outdoor living space, there are a few key elements that can enhance the functionality and enjoyment of the space.
Custom Designed Patio
Patios can be created as an extension of your home, so you want your patio design to blend seamlessly with your landscaping design, home, and the outdoors.
Features to incorporate into the design
Other features to consider for the outdoor living space include:
- Outdoor kitchens
- BBQs or built-in grills
- Sinks, stoves, and refrigerators
