With spring right around the corner, now is the time to evaluate your current outdoor living setup and decide how you are going to elevate it this year. Your outdoor living space should be a seamless extension of your home that enhances the time you spend outside. Here are a few of the most popular ways to create impactful outdoor moments to help you enjoy the seasons even more while adding value to your home.







Multi-Seasonal Rooms

An enclosed three or four seasons room addition allows you to enjoy the fresh air for the majority of the year. Three seasons rooms utilize adjustable windows and screens to transition from spring, summer, and late fall. Four seasons rooms are typically enclosed and conditioned to be used year-round. A huge benefit to multi-seasonal rooms is the full-time protection from pesky bugs or bad weather.







From a design standpoint, both three and four seasons rooms are highly customizable depending on how you wish to use the space. Including overhead fans, heaters, fireplaces, heated floors, or ambient lighting in your seasons room will keep your space comfortable for family, friends, and even pets to enjoy for longer throughout the year.







Wet bars and entertainment centers are available as well to elevate hosting. When our team builds multi-seasonal spaces, our designers work with you to determine the best size, scope, and materials to complement the aesthetic of your home and available yard space.

Outdoor Kitchen or Fireplace

To maximize warm weather and extend your entertaining space, consider adding a permanent fireplace or outdoor kitchen. Having a dedicated outdoor kitchen will provide an amazing outdoor oasis for cooking and grilling.

Added benefits include storage space for summer kitchenware and an overall enhancement of your backyard, which translated to more entertaining and quality family time outdoors. A statement stone or brick fireplace creates the perfect setting for evening fireside chats and smores.







Pergola or Covered Patio

If you’re looking to extend your living space outdoors without screens or windows, a covered patio or pergola may be the best fit for you. Pergolas offer partial sun protection and are highly customizable in shape and material. A covered porch provides full sun protection and can double as an outdoor mudroom whether it is located at the front or back of your home.
