When you think about Colorado, you probably imagine beautiful mountains capes, gorgeous scenery, and amazing weather. With so much nature to enjoy, it’s no wonder that outdoor living spaces are a must-have for most residents. Outdoor spaces are an extension of our indoor rooms and allow us to experience nature while still having the comforts of our home. Whether you are building a custom home or remodeling your current house, you have the opportunity to create the outdoor space of your dreams. Here are just a few of the outdoor essentials you should consider when you spruce up your outdoor space.
Every outdoor living space requires a strong foundation. A deck is the perfect place to establish this kind of stability. Not only do they provide a strong structural platform for your outdoor space, but they can also transform a bland backyard into an outdoor oasis. Additionally, decks are a sought-after addition for potential homebuyers and a large reason why many homeowners and custom home buyers are investing in building them onto their homes. With so many different styles and design options to choose from, you can definitely build the deck of your dreams!
One of our favorite outdoor space trends is the fire pit! In our opinion, this is an absolute must-have for any backyard. Picture yourself relaxing by the fire on a cool summer night or gathering with friends for some s’mores around the fire pit. There’s just something magical about the warm light from a fire that creates a sense of comfort and joy for those close to it. But our favorite thing about a fire pit is that they make their outdoor space multi-seasonal! This means you are able to enjoy the outdoors nearly all year long! We urge you to add a fire pit to your backyard as soon as possible!
Last but not least is the pergola! These beautiful structures have recently grown in popularity and are quickly becoming an outdoor oasis for many homeowners. Pergolas are square or rectangular outdoor structures that consist of four columns topped with beams and open rafters. These structures are designed to provide shade and allow fresh air to circulate and maintain a cool and comfortable outdoor space. While certainly functional, pergolas are also incredible structures that show off your sense of style.
