As we wait for the warmer weather to arrive in Chicago, it’s the perfect time to start planning how you will enjoy the season! One of the many benefits of creating a custom home, renovating, and building an addition is that you can plan how to make your space fit your lifestyle. Creating a unique patio with a luxury outdoor living area for entertaining during the summertime is an exciting way you can begin planning for fun occasions when the season changes…
Soak Up The Seasons
A wonderful benefit of adding a custom outdoor living area to your home is that you have the luxury of relaxing outdoors with friends and family even when the weather is colder. With heating lamps, fire pits, and outdoor fireplaces, you and your guests live the good life all year long!
Other nice touches, such as a heated swimming pool, jacuzzis and lounging areas provide the perfect escape midweek – and they are conveniently located in your own backyard.
Extending Your Living Space
Does your home feel like it’s missing something? Are you wondering what to do with all the extra space in your backyard? Design an outdoor living room with a cozy outdoor brick fireplace and beautiful furniture to dine under the stars. Don’t forget about creating a fun spot for the kids! Make an outdoor game area with ping-pong or construct a fire pit perfect for an after-dinner s’more.
Build a covered outdoor grilling area and stainless steel cooking space as an extension to your indoor kitchen. You’ll no longer have to wait until the weather is good enough to hone your grilling skills. Cook outdoors anytime. Do you have a Green Egg grill? Create a space perfect to perfect your latest dish. Love organic produce? Reserve a space to plant an organic garden right outside your kitchen window! An outdoor living space will give your kids an area to play while you get some much needed rest and relaxation without having to leave the house.
Hosting the Perfect Party
As you begin adding summer parties to your calendar, an outdoor patio is the perfect place to entertain guests for every occasion. For dinner parties, an outdoor patio with a bar provides the perfect space to serve appetizers and cocktails before the main course. Maybe you’re hosting a Sunday brunch? Build a comfortable lounge area large enough to catch up with your closest friends. And don’t forget football season! Gather your squad and their families around the outdoor fireplace with a high definition flat screen TV mounted so you don’t miss a single play – even as you flip the burgers.
