Designing Your Perfect Outdoor Living Space
Living in Florida has many advantages. One of those is the ability to spend a great deal of time outside without freezing. If you’re considering an outdoor living space, you have many options. Even if you’re on a budget, you can make the perfect addition to your home. Here are a few ideas to consider for your new outdoor living space.
If you really want to do all your entertaining outside and have the space and budget, consider an outdoor kitchen. Outdoor kitchens range from simple to elaborate and can include so many different elements like:
- Built-In Grill
- Mini-Keg Cooler
- Ice Maker
- Pizza Oven
Because many natural stone countertops are great for outside, you can even create a bar top or serving area that looks great and is easy to maintain.
Depending on your entertaining style, you may want to have a large table with ceiling fans over it or keep it simple with your bar area. A roofing addition may be possible depending on your HOA regulations and the easement requirements in your city. Usually a pergola or retractable awning is acceptable, which can provide shade if a permanent roofing structure isn’t.
Firepit or Fireplace
Firepits are an increasingly popular addition to the backyard. Although you can purchase a metal firepit just about anywhere, a built in one on a new patio will last longer and look great. A fireplace can warm you on our cool winter evenings and they’re great for toasting marshmallows. You can choose an attached or detached fireplace depending on your space. However you choose to add some ambiance to your outdoor living space, make sure to be safe, especially with portable fire pits. Keep them at least ten feet from your home and the neighbor’s property.
