A well designed outdoor room is an extension of your home with endless possibilities - cooking, entertaining, lounging, dining, and even watching television. Similar to indoor rooms, outdoor rooms can have walls, entrance ways, ceilings, furniture, flooring, and even amenities such as fireplaces or built in seating. Designing and creating these rooms depends mostly on your lifestyle and needs, whether it be a play area for children or an relaxing fireside reading area for adults. The days of concrete slab patios are over with outdoor rooms. These are some of the design elements that we use to create outdoor rooms:
- Different levels
- Seat walls
- Built in kitchens
- Fire pits
- Overhead arbors & pergolas
- Private & semi-private areas
- Overhead structures: pergolas, tree limbs
- Flooring: Brick Patios, Natural Stone Patios
Reflection Of Your Lifestyle
Outdoor living spaces are replacing the living room as preferred areas for relaxation. Expand your living space by allowing Suburban Landscaping to design a unique outdoor room as part of your landscape. Whether you are thinking about outdoor kitchens or a cozy backyard retreat, our designers meet with you to determine how you would like to use the space then translate those ideas into a design master plan.
Gather Around The Outdoor Kitchen
Dinners on the patio have moved well beyond just the old charcoal grill, many outdoor rooms now feature partial or full kitchens. Built-in grills, wine racks, bar areas, sinks, pizza ovens, and refrigerators are all elements to consider in your new outdoor kitchen. Gather your family and friends around the outdoor kitchen island for conversation and catching up on daily events, just as you may do in your indoor kitchen.
Fireplaces, fountains, and ponds have always been popular concepts in outdoor room designs. Suburban Landscaping can also incorporate the latest in light and sound technology. Weatherproof sound systems, televisions and landscape lighting can be used to create an atmosphere for entertaining or relaxation in the outdoors.
Create Room Boundaries
Water features, gazebos, low hedges, seat walls, trellises, columns and posts all can act as faux-walls to create boundaries for dining areas or quite areas. Room boundries can show separation between areas, defining the intended use of a space. Boundries, such as hedges or decorative seat walls, also direct family and guests to the rooms intended for public use and away from the rooms intended for private use. Comfortable and functional seating and outdoor dining space are essential elements for most outdoor rooms. Incorporating green space for children to play, zen gardens or small nooks for reading or contemplation are considerations for your outdoor living plan.
