It’s easy to get caught up in the home building process and only focus on the interior. Sometimes, outdoor spaces are what give your home the most character and can offer some additional space that is much needed for families in particular. Being considerate of your lifestyle is always a necessity when building a home and that often includes how you use the exterior areas of your living space. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite outdoor spaces that may be suitable for you!
An Ideal Front Porch
Few things scream the American dream like a welcoming, beautiful front porch. It’s reminiscent of simpler times when everyone knew their neighbor by name and having an inviting home was just a part of being in the community. To make your front porch the perfect spot, consider adding a few rocking chairs or even a large bench so you can spend summer nights sipping tea on your front porch with your neighbors, friends, and family members.
Wrap Around Decks
Most homeowners have some interest in a custom deck being added onto their custom home, but even more desirable is a wrap around deck. Accompanied by french doors or folding patio doors, you can open the space up when the weather permits and really let your home breathe. This spacious addition is great for those with dogs, as well, as it can offer them some much-needed fresh air.
Are you the type who loves to have as many friends over as you can and hosting huge events? Having a spacious backyard is often a great place to do so in. The openness of the area will leave your guests feeling like they’re able to breathe, plus it leaves the possibility open for a number of outdoor additions, like large patio furniture, a permanent outdoor kitchen, or even a hot tub.
