One of the fastest growing trends in the U.S. is the Outdoor Living Space. In Virginia we are fortunate to have some pretty mild weather which allows us to use the outdoors as living space nearly year round. Many homeowners are beginning to realize the potential of utilizing the outdoors as a primary living area for their home. A well designed outdoor living space can become a popular meeting place for family and friends. Creative Design Homes will help you design the perfect backyard retreat. Furthermore, an outdoor living space will add value to your home and it is a great selling point for if and when you decide to sell your home.
Your Backyard Canvas
When designing a new outdoor living area, there are several factors to consider before getting started, most importantly sun orientation. The sun will directly affect the time you want to spend on an open deck. If you are considering a deck think about the location of the sun during the time that you will be using it the most. If your deck will be in direct sunlight there are several shading options that can be incorporated into your design that will maximize the functionality of your new outdoor living space.
Consider the Options
From a Screened Porch, to a Gazebo, from a Custom Deck to a Brick Paved Patio there are a lot of options. A trellis will add beauty to your garden while a Pergola will provide a shady space on those sunny days as you lounge on your new stamped concrete patio. To get the most out of your new deck, you may want to consider adding a covering over a portion of your outdoor living area to ensure that you are able to get the most out of your new backyard retreat.
Regardless of how you plan to utilize your new living space there is a solution to ensure you are able to get the most out of it. A Retractable Awning adds some flexibility to allow you to enjoy the sun if you want or keep you shaded on the brightest of days. A pergola will add architectural style to your outdoor space while it provides sun protection. Its latticed roof can be adjusted at the time of construction to allow the proper amount light through to meet your expectations. A full roof option will provide great protection from the rain but for the ultimate in outdoor living nothing will work better than a screened porch.
