Everyone enjoys summer weekends as they tend to be the perfect time to unwind, relax, and enjoy some well-deserved time in your backyard. While we’re at the tail end of summer, there’s till plenty of time available to enjoy your outdoor living environment.
In order to increase the tranquility and visual appeal of your backyard, there are some important and simple steps you can take in order to create a luxurious escape from everyday life. The easiest and most effective way to do this is to extend the comfort of your indoor amenities into your outdoor living space.
An outdoor living room is a concept that’s becoming more and more popular as the tools to render a patio and backyard into more of an extension of your indoor living area have become a reality. There’s absolutely no reason the atmosphere and style you create in your home can’t be brought outside. Comfortable furniture and ambient light can set the tone while technological additions like a fireplace and/or weather-proof flat-screen TV can create an atmosphere perfect for socializing.
Motorized screens from Phantom Screens Okanagan utilize clear vinyl retractable walls that keep the rain, wind, and insects away and create a seamless room out of your patio. Perfect for eating outside, socializing, or just relaxing in the comfort of your new outdoor living area.
Phantom’s retractable door screens create a near-invisible separation between your two living areas and work for patio doors of any kind. People utilizing a Phantom screen will see how the screen retracts practically out of sight when not in use so as not to impact your existing architecture.
Studies have proven that the sound of flowing water nurtures a calming effect that’s beneficial to mental and emotional wellbeing. A bubbling or flowing water feature that cascades or even a small koi pond can bring an eastern esthetic to your backyard.
In a similar fashion, a firepit or fixed fireplace can add an additional layer of ambience that’s both attractive and functional, particularly in the cooler months when you still want to sit outside during cooler temperatures.
No comfortable space is complete without food! If you love to feed yourself, family, and friends, consider an outdoor kitchen to really amp up the grilling factor. An island eating area is a great way to provide extra space for guests and don’t forget the bar sink for practicality while cooking under the stars.
