We West Coasters love to take advantage of the outdoors when the sun is shining. Outdoor living is becoming a common design request in home renovations & decor. Outdoor renovations nowadays often include: fire pits, lighting elements, built-in barbecues, kitchens, sinks, appliances, pizza ovens, hot tubs, open trellises, furniture, TV & video, stone and water accents, and plants.
Planning exterior spaces is approached in a similar manner to an interior renovation. When thinking about an exterior living space, ask yourself what you envision doing outside. Do you dream of cooking, lounging or relaxing with a book and a cold drink? Will you host huge parties, or do you want a relaxing space for the family?
It’s important to figure out your needs, wishes and desires for your outdoor space. Come up with a plan before breaking ground to ensure you create the outdoor oasis you’ve always been dreaming of.
