When you’re updating or building a new outdoor space, your choices can become overwhelming. At Atlanta Porch & Patio we have the experience and vision to help you create a beautiful outdoor space that you and your family will love for years to come. Here are a few of our suggestions to take your space to the next level of luxury:
Create Distinct Areas
Divide your outdoor space into separate areas with specific focal points and clearly defined spaces for every activity. Anchor dining and entertaining spaces with stone edging on a concrete patio, multiple levels of a deck or add a secluded “room” at a far end of your property with a walkway of beautiful pavers. By separating your outdoor space into distinct areas, you are mirroring your home’s interior and virtually doubling your living space.
Streamline Your Outdoor Kitchen
One of the key elements to creating a luxury outdoor space is a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Incorporate all the features you want or need (oven, cooktop, grill, pizza oven, refrigerators, freezers, sinks) into a single area that blends into the nearby surroundings. By extending a nearby material into the space (matching wood decking, concrete, etc.) you can pull together all of those features to create a streamlined outdoor kitchen.
Opt for Overhead Structures
Some overhead structures, like gazebos, pavilions, and canopies provide comfort and protection from rain, giving you more opportunities to spend time outdoors. Other structures, like pergolas, arbors, and trellises define your space and give an outdoor room a more intimate feeling.
Don’t let the fun end when the sun goes down! Light the edges of paths and stairs with LED lighting to draw attention to those features and to increase safety. Depending on the style of your outdoor space, you can incorporate other types of lighting such as gas lanterns, chandeliers, or bistro lights.
Incorporate Water and Fire Features
Opposite yet complementing elements, fire and water, bring serenity to an outdoor space. Add the soothing sound of water with bird baths, ponds, fountains, or a bubbling stream. A fire feature such as a fire pit, chiminea or fireplace will draw your guests into cozy conversation and keep everyone warm up on a cool evening.
