Summer is upon us and with it comes spending more time in the great outdoors. When designing your new home, you should consider how you and your family spend those summer nights. The best-designed outdoor spaces serve as extensions of our home, family, and lifestyle. Let’s explore a few outdoor living options below.Outdoor Kitchen
If you’re all about cooking for the ones you love then an outdoor kitchen might be the option for you. This option is ideal for the reigning BBQ king or queen. With options like a built-in grill, outdoor cabinet space and a sink to avoid all those messy trips in and out of the house, your summer entertaining will be smooth sailing.Screened-in Back Porch
A screened-in porch could be the right fit for you if you’d rather do your relaxing outdoors. You can enjoy the perks of outdoor living without the critters and weather that come along with it. Add in a rocking chair and a glass of iced tea or lemonade and you’re all set.Outdoor Fireplace or Fire Pit
This outdoor feature may be associated more so with the fall and winter months but it does have its place in the summer months as well. You may not be able to prepare a feast like you would with the outdoor kitchen but you can still feel that summer camp nostalgia while firing up some of your summertime favorites. Because what’s summer without s’mores?
