Homeowners, year after year, continue to find value in investing in their outdoor landscape. A well-designed, thoughtful backyard space doesn’t just help increase your home’s value but also gives you the freedom to enjoy your very own outdoor paradise and extend your living beyond the walls of your home.
Creating an outdoor living space that flows seamlessly from the inside is no easy task, but with some inspiration and the right architects, your design team will work together to blur the lines between interior and exterior entertainment spaces.
FROM THE RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE EXPERTS AT PK ARCHITECTURE, HERE ARE A FEW IDEAS ON HOW TO MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE FEEL LUXURIOUS:
CONNECT THE INDOORS AND OUTDOORS
If you’re looking for a starting point, think about circulation within and around your home first. Consider adding multi-slide doors, bi-folding doors, or walk-out basements in your home that help extend your living space into outside spaces, making entertaining guests and hosting parties easier.
ADD AN EXCITING WATER FEATURE
Create a relaxing, luxurious oasis in your backyard with an exciting water feature designed to be a focal point for your landscape. Some features include lavish pools and spas, koi ponds, waterfalls, fountains, and more. The sweet sounds of the running water will transport you to a place of serenity, whether you are sitting by an outdoor fireplace under a screen porch, lounging on your terrace, or choose to break down the barriers of exterior and interior by opening a glass door mentioned above.
THINK ABOUT ENTERTAINING
One of the best parts of any outdoor living space is sharing it with your family and friends. If you like having guests over, think about how you wish to entertain them. Consider comfortable furniture and seating areas, a swimming pool to relax by or swim in, structures such as pergolas and gazebos for shade, and open yard space to enjoy games and activities.
BUILD A POOL HOUSE
Compliment your beautiful swimming pool with a multi-functional pool house nearby. In your pool house, you can add a convenient place for you and your guests to be comfortable outdoors. You may want your pool house to include a bathroom, changing room, pool supplies storage space, kitchen space, sink, dining table, or other elements that would make entertaining guests easier and reduce the need to use facilities within your main house.
CONSIDER AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN
Many will agree that the kitchen is the heart of the home, so why not make an outdoor kitchen the heart of your backyard space? Outdoor kitchens with beautiful countertops, sinks, grills, pizza ovens, and whatever else you need to whip up a culinary masterpiece make entertaining easier than ever and help you, the host, stay involved in the outdoor festivities.
ADD SOMETHING UNIQUE
If you want your backyard space to truly feel one-of-a-kind, consider adding an eye-catching unique feature that you and your guests will love. Maybe you are an avid golfer and would get great use out of a personal putting green, or you love watching movies with friends and want to build your very own backyard movie theater. If you prefer to gaze at beauty, consider adding a sculptural garden or a mural to your landscape.
