Ideas for Outdoor Rooms
It doesn’t really matter how large or small your backyard is. A well designed and decorated outdoor space will be the ideal spot to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather here in Texas.
Gazebo or Pergola
Building a large outdoor structure in your backyard is a big decision to make. You have to factor in location, size, material, and budget. But building a pergola or gazebo has many benefits. You can also use your pergola or gazebo to give climbing plants a structure on which to grow!, and provides a shady seating area for guests.
Your outdoor space doesn’t have to be rustic if that’s not the aesthetic you’re going for. The materials you use can be as high end and luxurious as you’d like. Mix materials like wood and stone for a Tuscan theme, adding touches of marble or quartz to amp up the wow factor. Add custom water features to your backyard pool for tranquil sights and sounds.
Think Outside the Box
Freeform pools have become industry standard for most people, but when it comes to your backyard, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. If you spend a lot of time outside, your outdoor space should reflect your unique personality. Consider an unconventional pool shape with unique hardscape elements and outdoor rooms.
Bring the Inside Out
When you imagine your ideal backyard, try to incorporate elements from the inside of your home. For example, if your friends and family love watching football on a big screen, consider installing one under a covered patio, with a large outdoor sofa to lounge on. Love cooking? An outdoor kitchen might be the answer.
Pro Tip: An outdoor kitchen can give you a place to get creative without worrying about making a mess or lingering smells.
An Outdoor Destination
As you explore outdoor design ideas, keep in mind that creating a relaxing, stylish outdoor room can greatly increase the appeal and value of your home and provide a destination for friends and family to enjoy the great outdoors in comfort. Not sure where to start? Magazines, books, and design websites are excellent sources of inspiration but don’t hesitate to write down a short description of your dream outdoor space. This will help your landscaping designer or contractor understand what you want.
