The weather is warming up in the Carolinas, and there’s something so special about this time of year. Maybe it’s the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead, or the excitement of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor space.
Let’s look at five ways to enjoy your personalized Value Build Homes outdoor living space and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.
1) Turn your deck into an outdoor living room
If you’ve opted to include a back deck on your home, turn up the comfort factor and select a few plush couches or settees, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and lots of cozy blankets for after-dinner drinks and conversation. This time of year (and all year, really), we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!
2) Make s’mores with the kids
A deck is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and materials to match your home’s style. The little ones will LOVE making their own desserts, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Take in a movie
Your spacious yard is the perfect place for family movie night! Purchase a screen and projector, or get creative with a white sheet, and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your deck or front porch cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
North and South Carolina have some of the best weather in the country this time of year. Take advantage of it by having special occasion meals at home. Create an unforgettable dining experience with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
At Value Build Homes, you choose the outdoor space you need, so you can enjoy it in the ways that best suit your lifestyle. Do you spend more time on your front porch than in your backyard? No problem. Opt for an elevation with an expanded front porch. Do you have family get-togethers in the backyard and need a space large enough to accommodate everyone? Then we know a standard 10×10 deck probably won’t work and can offer several other sizes. Because we are a custom homebuilder in North Carolina and South Carolina, you can design your outdoor space to your unique specifications.
However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Value Build home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. For more information, please contact us!
