Whether you’re just about to start building your very own custom home or you’ve been a longtime owner of one, it’s clear that having control over your space is important to you. Whatever unique inner flourishes your custom home may have are already built to your specifications, but you have control over the outdoor space as well. If you’re wondering how you can utilize the outdoor space of your custom home to its maximum potential, read on below to find out more.
Installing a fire pit in your backyard offers a fun escape for your friends and family. There are a few different options as well. Simple fire pits consist of a fire ring, masonry stones, and gravel, whereas more elaborate and luxurious fire pits are built from stone. Regardless, it will give you a great outdoor space that can offer some much-needed warmth on colder nights. Kick back and enjoy some s’mores as well!
Seating and Entertaining
Adding in a quality set of outdoor chairs and a patio or picnic table can make your home feel much more inviting. Combined with that fire pit of yours and you’ll have the perfect space for entertaining. You can also use a pergola to help define an outdoor dining space, which can be a great contrast to the rest of your landscaped yard. Lastly, consider installing a permanent grill in your entertaining area, that way you can cook up something delicious for all of your guests.
If you’re looking for ways to add in some color to your yard, using wall planters may be the best way. They can be used to fill large, empty spaces that just don’t look as exciting as your other areas that may be professionally landscaped. Instead, you’ll find that planters designed to hang from walls or DIY solutions can transform those areas into something bright.
