Desiging a Fantastic Outdoor Room

It’s time to entertain and impress your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues with a fantastic outdoor room. Designing your outdoor room is as simple as 1, 2, 3, 4! And the pros at Montgomery Builders have the experience and creativity to help you every step of the way.

Step one is to define the use of your space. Think about what you want from your outdoor room. Do you just want a quiet place to enjoy a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening? Are you looking to attract wildlife? Do you want an open area with a wide vista, or a smaller, secluded space that feels like a secret? Think about how you will use your space and with whom you will share it, and begin your design process from there.

Start at the foundation. Just like a room, your outdoor space needs a “floor.” Do you want it to blend with the current design of your home, or make you feel as if you’re escaping to a faraway land like the Caribbean or Japan? There are many choices for the foundation of your outdoor room such as deck planking, slate, brick, many types and styles of pavers, and even stained concrete. Do you want to include a wildlife pond or a firepit? The design of your outdoor room / patio can work around these elements, and the foundation / floor is what will tie it all together.

Creating the perfect outdoor room is easy with expert help from Montgomery Builders.

Define your outdoor room with elements that break the view. Using hedges, trees, shrubs, planters, vines, and retaining walls, you can make your outdoor room feel like a haven away from the world, or a vantage point from which you can view a bigger space. Based on your theme and design, use various elements to define your space and create focal points with plants and walls.

The last step in designing your outdoor room is deciding if you want the sky to be the limit! Do you want a view of the stars or would you rather have a covering from the sun? Or maybe you want a little bit of both! Outdoor rooms can be tied into the existing roofline, or have stand-alone pergolas, canopies, or trellises that serve as a home for birds and other wildlife.

Spring is here, and Summer is on the way and it’s time to design and build the outdoor room of your dreams. Let the experienced designers and builders at Montgomery Builders help you every step of the way. Contact us today.
