As a homeowner, do you want to make the most of every square foot of your property? Do you want to maximize your enjoyment? Of course! Integrating outdoor living features into your design is a wonderful way to utilize your property optimally – and to find joy in stunning views, lovely weather (or the occasional thunderstorm, if you like a little excitement with your nature show!), and enhance the pride you have in your home.

Are you intrigued by the idea of blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living?

Outdoor Living: A World of Possibilities

Bringing the indoors out can help you create beautiful continuity and unity in your design, as well as take advantage of natural light and air. If you are interested in selling at some point, then it becomes an attractive feature to highlight for potential buyers.

One simple way to bring the outdoors in is with strategic use of windows. This allows in beautiful natural light – which is not only elegant, but an effective mood booster.

In this Modern Farmhouse design, gorgeous windows make quite a statement. The large glass patio doors create an airy, open feel.

Retractable glass doors are another great way to add beautiful scenery to a room, even when closed. Glass doors that take up an entire wall from floor-to-ceiling on even just one side of a room can add an airy feel to your home and open up the space. Rest on the couch while catching a gentle breeze or open your home for a party that flows from indoors to outdoors.

Bringing the indoors out can help you create beautiful continuity and unity in your design, as well as take advantage of natural light and air.

You have the freedom to go even further and extend your indoor space outdoors. Today’s designs go beyond a nice patio, deck, screened in porch or three-season room (though we certainly love these features). You can create outdoor living rooms, kitchens, open-air showers, and more.

It can be as simple as using billowy outdoor curtains to enclose a back-porch space, adding comfortable seating and an outdoor television. Your open-air living space can also be much more elaborate and customized to your needs and tastes. Our 2016 Home-A-Rama design, for example, featured a jaw-dropping kitchen, dining, and entertainment area.

Picture morning coffee with a view; evening cocktails with friends and a cool breeze. It’s a perfect way to enjoy nature – and undeniable comfort and luxury. You’ll be able to savor the first taste of spring warmth; you won’t heat up your house cooking a summer feast; and you can catch every last ray of autumn sunshine.

The roof provides cover so you can use your outdoor living space during inclement weather; at the same time, it does not close the area in. Including an outdoor fireplace will keep you cozy through autumn and even into winter.

How will you blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living? Finding a way to incorporate the outdoors into the design of your custom home is a breeze, whether you want some fresh air or just want to enjoy the views. A convertible living space opens up the floor plan and allows you to make the most of every season.
