Outdoor Living Spaces Becoming the New “In” Thing in Houston
With the goal of taking advantage of the wide open spaces, sun and fresh air that define the region, many Houston custom home owners are developing new and exciting outdoor living spaces that incorporate not only the look and design of their existing home but have many of the features that are more commonly found inside the home. Think designer kitchens and appliances, climate controlled spaces and even sleeping quarters that are perfect for unexpected guests.
These outdoor living spaces can take many forms and functions and are only limited in design and purpose by the homeowner’s imagination. Whether the original dwellings are traditional style homes, more modern craftsman style homes or anything in between, a new outdoor living space can serve as a new location for family gatherings or as an additional living quarter.
As a new location for parties and family get-togethers, an outdoor living space can include a barbecue/kitchen area that includes the most up-to-date appliances. Imagine a built-in range/grill configuration that allows you to not only cook up elaborate meals but also grill the perfect steak, all just a few feet from your pool and deck. Include a refrigerator and other key appliances and you have the ultimate outdoor party center.
Or, enclose the area with screens, glass, or other material, and you can have an additional living space that extends the square footage of your home and provides you with a new lounge area or bedroom that can be enjoyed year-round. With the installation of special climate controls, you can create the perfect environment to watch the seasons go by.
The new outdoor living space can be created to match your Houston custom home perfectly; utilizing the same design and materials. It can be a seamless addition that not only adds beauty to your home, but increases its value as well.
