A Better Outdoor Experience: Have Confidence in Your Remodeling Ideas
Outdoor living is a major part of luxury home life in Arizona. The southwestern climate lends residents the amazing opportunity to enjoy more than 300 days of sunny, blue skies every year.
Your Phoenix outdoor living space should be stylish and chic and also one of casual sophistication, extending from the inside to the outside of your home.
If you are enhancing your outdoor space, the team of designers at Republic West Remodeling suggests considering the following four exterior home design ideas to achieve your desired outcome:
- Create an extension from inside to outside. Find ways to transition interior themes to your home’s exterior and vice versa. The goal with this method is to seamlessly join together the outside of your home with the inside. As a result, the colors and style of your home’s interior extend to the general theme of the exterior.
- Assign designated areas for entertaining and dining. If possible, aim to designate one outside area for eating and another place that offers seating for relaxing and socializing. They key is to stylistically work to make each of the individual areas complement one another. For example, if you use mocha-colored furnishings on one side of your patio, stick with your color scheme in the other areas of your backyard.
- Consider patios or a courtyard. Courtyards or inclusive patios can provide private, peaceful places to relax. Each option contains a wide range of features, such as gardens, fireplaces, or sitting areas. Some homeowners enjoy filling these areas with custom furniture and strings of white lights to set a magical ambience for entertaining guests during warm Phoenix evenings. Others may opt for an arrangement of comfortable chairs, next to a soothing waterfall feature, surrounding a fire pit for the ultimate serene setting.
- Provide the right path. Backyard paths can help divide the space in your yard to create various functional spaces. For instance, a path may serve as a border of one of your gardens to separate it from a quiet seating area. While some homeowners opt for inexpensive gravel, others might prefer more upscale, eye-catching paths featuring large stones or pavers, both of which can provide a distinctive experience as you walk to the different areas in your yard. Other path options include concrete sidewalks, which are durable and long-lasting, or bricks and flat rocks, which all can help prevent buckling or shifting. Finally, some homeowners prefer to incorporate different types of stone and materials to design a path that features a unique blend and contrast between materials. With this approach, some people combine complete or broken pieces of cut stone, for example, with gravel and fieldstone to craft attractive pathways.
