Extending your living space to the Great Outdoors, creating a cushy relaxation and entertainment space on your new patio deck is what the new generation of outdoor living rooms offer. Affordable, casual living with outdoor room ideas perfect for entertaining, cook-outs, sun tanning, lounging listening to music or even watching widescreen TV.
Yes … but … a great chair, a new barbecue, a set of speakers also looks inviting to birds, mice, spiders and even snakes. Result? Outdoor room designs are becoming more comfort-focused, more pragmatic, even more “defensive” as families leave behind close door air conditioned living for the Great Open Spaces.
Outdoor Dining Room. Think food … ants … other bugs. No amount of comfy outdoor living room furniture can overcome a deluge of crawlies. Solution? Tight construction, from your patio paver stones or brick patio design up to your deck railings or your outdoor screen room, you’ll need to think “defensively” in order to get the sort of peace and enjoyment you’re looking for.
Outdoor Bedrooms. Night sounds … crickets … possums … fireflies … coyotes barking … V-formation geese winging by in moonlight. All this and more will be possible if you’re bold enough to venture beyond Appalachian Trail tents into a patio or lawn centered outdoor bedroom.
