How Do I Make My Backyard Stand Out?
If you’re looking to develop your backyard into the perfect at-home oasis, there are many different things to consider. With some imagination, creativity and the right pool builder, you can turn your backyard into the perfect getaway steps from your back door. Creating a space that is a seamless transition from the indoors out while also serving as a functional place for you to relax, make memories and just have fun is what it’s all about. Read on for a few ideas to further enhance your backyard this year.
- Custom Pool
There’s nothing more relaxing and exciting than having a pool in your backyard. And the most exciting thing about adding a pool is the design options are truly endless. From traditional designs to more natural-looking poolscapes with waterfalls and even grottos, you can create a beautiful pool that even the most exciting resort will envy. By working with a professional pool designer you’ll be able to make your wildest dreams come true for the perfect poolscape you can enjoy with family and friends for years to come.
- Outdoor Kitchen
Being able to cook and dine al fresco is one of life’s most enjoyable experiences. Whether you’re looking to incorporate a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen or one that features an industrial grill and even a pizza oven, there are so many options available to customize an outdoor kitchen to meet your needs. Family fun oftentimes revolves around food, and having a functional, not to mention beautiful, outdoor kitchen where you can just stay outside, prep your food and just enjoy it, makes your outdoor oasis all the more exciting.
- Fire Pit or Fireplace
For those chillier summer nights or cooler winter months, adding a fire pit or fireplace is a great addition to your ultimate staycation. This will serve as a place where you can get the family together and go old school by roasting marshmallows, or you can host a party and move everyone outside to enjoy hanging out together under the stars. Fire Pits and fireplaces are great congregating spots for family, friends and amazing conversation.
- Outdoor Seating
Outdoor seating is a must. Adding a few comfortable chairs or maybe a couch to complete the setting will create a space that’s perfect for entertaining or hanging out. You can plan to be around your fire pit or create a separate covered area to the side. A hardscape patio with custom wall seating is also a great addition that will add a level of luxury to your outdoor living area.
- Landscaping & Lighting
Bring together all aspects of your backyard decision with the right landscaping and accent lighting. By choosing greenery that complements your pool’s aesthetic and uplighting that showcases certain features of your outdoor living space, you’ll highlight interesting details about your backyard design, as well as create a warming atmosphere that adds a bit of luxury to your home.
- Covered Areas
Pergolas, arbors or gazebos are great ways to add depth to your outdoor living space and pool area. Not only do they provide sun or weather protection for yourself and your guests, but they also offset a seating area or an outdoor kitchen area and add some aesthetic appeal. Add some string lights or an outdoor chandelier and you have yourself a beautiful place to enjoy in the evening.
- Custom Spa
And finally, the luxury to end all luxuries. Why travel hundreds of miles to pay for expensive hotels when you can pour yourself a glass of wine and unwind in your own spa? That, too, with a view of your flatscreen with a collection of your favorite unwinding shows at no extra charge. There are so many benefits to having a spa at your own discretion, including stress reduction, muscle and body relief, and better sleep, just to name a few.
