Springtime means more time spent outside in the warmer weather, enjoying the longer days. For those of you that enjoy your BBQ or your outdoor entertainment, maybe it’s time to consider a new outdoor living space.
Decks are classic, stylish, entertainment areas. Decks can be built as custom as the homeowner’s imagination, especially if the deck can be built multiple stories. Tiered decks can create entertainment spaces, which, for instance, can allow a full cookout area—complete with grills and tables—and an entirely different tier, in which people can entertain or relax. One highly customizable area of the deck is the handrail. The handrail can be built to match the deck, or it could even be a customized metal rail which adds flair and class.
Patios provide outdoor living spaces to even the simplest homes. Patios can be built with either wood or concrete. Concrete patios allow the best customization. Concrete can be easily stained in any color that the homeowner chooses. Also, concrete can be stamped in a pattern that adds style to what would otherwise be a smoothed concrete surface—these patterns can resemble brick paths, or even swirling designs. Concrete Patios work well for outdoor cooking areas. These are great places to add enormous BBQ grills. Maybe even outdoor televisions, so even when you want to spend time outside you wont miss the game—there are televisions today that are completely weather-proof!
Lighting is an important consideration in an outdoor living space. If you have the new patio or deck it’s important that you install quality lighting to ensure that even if the party doesn’t wind down before it gets dark, it’ll still be possible to enjoy the outside space. There’s numerous options for lighting that include everything from tiki torches to enormous, antiqued sconces. Whichever designs you choose, make them as customized as the living space.
If you’re one of those people that enjoy entertaining others outdoors in the summer, then remember that great movie line from Field of Dreams— “If you build it they will come”
