The beautiful warm weather often inspires the need for changes to the home. Outdoor living spaces are typically the solutions as people enjoy the outdoors but still want comfort and curb appeal. Having the perfect place to host activities or enjoy some relaxation is ideal. Sunrooms, porches, decks, and patios are all great examples of extending the living space to the outdoors and today we at Future Vision Remodeling would like to touch on each choice to help you make a decision.
Design Ideas for Extended Living Spaces
Patios: Modern patios are more than just a slab of concrete, they can be more like a an outdoor room that includes a delightful built in BBQ grill or pit along with a mini-kitchen that has a fridge and a sink; making a year-round entertaining spot. For added warmth a fire pit or for dramatic flair a fireplace can make the chillier evenings special.
Porches: Porches are a warm and welcoming addition to any home. Whether they are large or small, they can be adorned with porch swings and furnishings for an inviting effect. Back yard porches have a little more versatility with width to bring more creativity and opportunity to bring friends and family together for fun. Details in order to blend the porch with the design of the home to avoid making it look like an afterthought is ideal. Consider the architectural features like exposed beams and vaulted ceilings for example. If you want a porch without dwindling the interior rooms of the light, a roofless porch or one with a skylight might be exceptional. Screened enclosures, or sliding glad doors can expand the seasons use to ensure comfort, screens can help you feel the breeze but avoid the bugs, but the glass doors can protect you from the rain or extreme temperatures; things to consider.
Sunrooms: A very simple, very casual, but spaciously elegantly equipped with fine finishes and soaring windows. An extension of interior living space, the sunroom can easily blend in the inside to the outside living space; a part of the kitchen, living room, family room, and dining rooms can all have added space.
Extended Living Space HVAC, Lighting & Flooring
Where including the HVAC system to the extended space may prove to be a challenge to keep up with the demands of comfort; a separate energy efficient ductless heater and air conditioner may be optimal. Incorporating ambient lighting will give the illumination you need without being drowned out in it will maintain the proper mood. Flooring can be a stained and polished concrete, a beautifully charming wood floor or tile that compliments the surroundings.
