Design Feature: Outdoor Living

May 26, 2023

When it comes to building your dream home, the potential of outdoor living is simply limitless. These custom spaces have become an integral part of modern custom builds by offering boundless opportunities for creativity and enjoyment. Unlock the doors to a world of endless possibilities and envision your outdoor living dream come to life!

Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Transition

One of the main purposes of outdoor living additions is to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Large sliding glass doors or folding walls blur the home’s boundaries and bring the outdoors inside. This expands the living area and allows natural light to flood the house, creating a refreshing and vibrant atmosphere.

Functional Outdoor Kitchens

Gone are the days when outdoor cooking was limited to a simple grill! Outdoor kitchens now feature fully functional cooking and entertainment spaces. Equipped with built-in grills, refrigerators, sinks and ample counter space, these entertainment spaces make hosting parties and family gatherings through the seasons a breeze. Imagine preparing delicious meals while enjoying the fresh air and the company of loved ones!

Relaxing Retreats

In today’s fast-paced world, having a peaceful oasis in the backyard is a must. By incorporating cozy seating areas, fire pits, water features, and even outdoor spas, your custom Harcrest home will be the designated space to relax after a long week. Transforming the outdoor space into a serene getaway allows homeowners to easily unwind, recharge and reconnect with nature.

Versatile Outdoor Rooms

Another trend that has taken the outdoor living scene by storm is the concept of versatile outdoor rooms. These spaces are designed for multiple purposes and accommodate different activities throughout the year. Whether it’s a covered patio with a fireplace for chilly evenings or a sun-soaked deck for lounging, these flexible rooms adapt to changing needs and provide a year-round extension of the living space.

Sustainable Landscaping

With the increasing focus on sustainability, eco-friendly landscaping is a growing trend in outdoor design. Incorporating native plants, rainwater harvesting systems and efficient irrigation methods reduces water consumption and enhances the natural beauty of the surroundings. Sustainable landscaping practices create a harmonious and environmentally conscious outdoor space.
