5 Custom Outdoor Living Spaces For Your House

Phil Myers - Friday, March 04, 2016

Building a custom home allows you to create a space that is all your own—exactly how you want it. From countertops to custom outdoor living spaces, there are hundreds of decisions to be made.


No matter what, building a custom home should be an exciting time in anyone’s life. Creating a custom outdoor living space for you and your family allows you to customize your home around your lifestyle and your style. These spaces can be small projects like a simple deck or large projects that include televisions and fireplaces. These outdoor spaces are for you and your family to enjoy for years to come. Here are 5 outdoor living spaces to consider as you plan your custom home:



What was once just a simple grill on a concrete slab is now an entire customizable outdoor kitchen experience. If you love cooking and spending time outdoors, then an outdoor kitchen is perfect for your custom home. Complete with a refrigerator, built in gas grill, kitchen island, and functioning sink, you’ll soon be whipping up gourmet dinners outside for family and friends.


Outdoor Living Room

Spending time outside has never been better. From outdoor fireplaces to flat screen TVs, your family can enjoy the great outdoors the same way they enjoy the inside of your custom home. If you enjoy sitting next to your fireplace indoors, imagine sitting in front of one under the stars or wrapped in a blanket enjoying the crisp autumn night air. With outdoor living rooms, you get to enjoy all of the comforts of your indoor living room surrounded by nature and fresh air.


Custom Fire Pit

When it comes to bonfires, you can now enjoy more than a metal ring in the backyard. Instead, you can sit on custom brick benches that surround your decorative built in fire pit. Now, easily a focal point of the backyard, fire pits are a great way to enjoy being outside and spending quality time with your family. Imagine a walkway leading from your backdoor to a fire pit complete with brick benches, comfy chairs, and a great view.


Dining Room

From built in seating to custom cabinets, your outdoor dining room is a perfect place to showcase your personal style. For a more traditional patio feel, consider adding a pergola to block out some of the sun’s rays or adding a dining room table and chandelier to bring sophistication to the space.



No custom outdoor living space is complete without the right furniture. With vibrant pillows, dark wood accents, or modern metal chairs, you can make any space feel more like it’s your own. This is also another great opportunity to bring your home outside by allowing the floors to run seamlessly from kitchen to patio area or even by installing full glass doors that open your kitchen up to the patio.

Whatever custom outdoor living space you create, it’s your chance to show off your personal style and to get even more information on building your dream home, download our free e-book, Tips For Building a Custom Home, which walks you through the process of building a custom home. And, when you schedule a consultation with us, we’ll discuss all of your ideas to make the perfect outdoor living space for your custom home.
