Summer presents the perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends. Outdoor gatherings are a summertime tradition during months of beautiful weather and warm temperatures.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could share the function of your kitchen or living room with the openness of your backyard? According to Chris Black, founder of CB Construction in Dallas, it may be easier than you think.
“Creating a space that ties your indoor living area to the outdoors will help you get the most out of your home,” Black said. “You’ll not only have more space to entertain guests, but more space for your family to enjoy on a daily basis.”
Black offers some ideas for opening up your home to the outdoors:
Add French Doors
Adding French doors to your kitchen or living room can create an easy transition to your backyard, making your outdoor space more accessible. You’ll be able to have a clear view of your backyard with another benefit — lots of natural light.
Install a Deck or Patio
By building a deck or patio off of your kitchen or family room, you’ll have a welcoming place to get together outdoors. A patio or deck can provide a designated barbecue or a sitting area with plenty of room for guests outside of the house.
Build an Outdoor Living Area
An outdoor sitting area will offer an inviting place for guests to gather. Go beyond a table and chairs and include outdoor sofas and benches — even a fire pit to warm up those chilly nights.
“Extending your living space to your patio or backyard can be a convenient, effective way to use your entire home and backyard,” Black said. “By having a beautiful and functional outdoor space, you’ll want to spend more time outside enjoying your space with family and friends.”
