Summer is upon us and that means more time spent outside with friends and family. These long, hot days often call for time by the pool, but even that can get boring after several weeks of nothing but splashing and tanning. Breathe renewal into your outdoor time this summer season by creating a unique outdoor living space in your own backyard.
The foundation of a quality outdoor living space is a great patio. Give your patio the TLC it deserves by investing in pavestone pavers. These stone pieces are easy to install, and come in a wide variety of natural styles that will certainly add to any home. A great alternative to poured concrete, pavestone pavers allow for a wide range of styles like Plaza or Venetian, while also giving an added level of durability that regular concrete does not provide.
Spice up your family’s mealtime by creating an outdoor kitchen. Add a simple pizza oven like the Amerigo Stone Age or Chicago Brick, or go all out by incorporating matching cabinets and countertops for larger gatherings. Adding a kitchen element to your backyard is an easy project to undertake, and also a beautiful addition that will add value and appeal to your home.
Are s’mores a staple in your home? Consider installing a fire pit in your backyard. This small investment will pay off in late night laughs and snacks with your closest friends. Choose a style like Rumble Wall or Weston, then sit back and relax as you enjoy the latest addition to your home.
Don’t forget the importance of lighting as you move forward with outdoor projects this summer. Lighting not only helps illuminate all of your hard work, but it also helps keep you and your loved ones safe after the sun goes down. Use rail lights to emphasize boundaries, flood lights for a general wash, and special scones to add the ambiance that your home deserves.
Make the most of your summer with a unique outdoor living space that both you and your family can enjoy for years to come. Mix and match projects that fit your family’s needs, and even make it a fun afternoon project with everyone helping out with the easy installation. A little investment of time and energy now will make for cherished memories forever.
