One of the great things about custom built luxury homes is the control you have to design the outdoor space just the way you want it.
For some, the space outside their custom homes is just as important as that on the inside; therefore, it deserves great planning and innovative ideas to make it enjoyable.
Check out these appealing current trends in outdoor living space design that custom builders can incorporate into yours.
New Innovation in Decks and Patios
Decks and patios are common and traditional elements for creating usable outdoor living space.
Today’s custom built luxury homes take these spaces to a new level, sometimes quite literally.
More homeowners are opting for synthetic materials like PVC for fencing and decking due to its strength, longevity, and that it only has to be sprayed with a hose to look just like it did the day it was installed.
Additionally, many custom homes now feature multi-level patios and decks. These can incorporate different usable areas or create useable space in sloped backyards.
Patios and decks can be individual components or work together around a pool or water feature.
The sky's the limit with custom builders seeing requests for more elaborate, attractive, and useful outdoor designs every year.
Pools and Water Features
Pools are a favorite addition to custom homes for great outdoor living.
Pool design is another area where homeowners can stick to something more traditional or include something more unique, even a pool design that is incorporated into the patio or deck for a cohesive look.
More homeowners are opting for ornamental water features as well, with or without a swimming pool.
Fish ponds, waterfalls, and other features can be a beautiful, luxurious addition to any outdoor space.
Livable Outdoor Spaces
Beyond the obvious lounging space that decks and patios provide, some homeowners are taking their outdoor space to the next level by creating completely livable spaces.
Covered patios and decks that incorporate full kitchens, fire pits, fireplaces, overhead lighting, full sound systems, and more are becoming popular additions to custom built luxury homes.
These spaces allow those who enjoy being outdoors to truly get the most from their outdoor living spaces and make cooking, lounging, and entertaining more fun.
Creating A Mood or Theme
With so many options available in individual outdoor space components, custom builders are also seeing great demand for multi-purpose spaces built to create a theme or specific mood.
Tropical cabanas, outdoor cafes, and bar setups are all popular, as is Asian-inspired designs, lodge designs, and even themed designs.
