5 Ways to Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space This Spring

5 Ways to Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space This Spring

There’s something so special about the spring season, and it has finally arrived in the Pittsburgh area! Maybe it’s the welcome sunshine of perfectly warm days, the coziness of evenings still tinged with a cool breeze, or the promise of the gloriously long summer ahead. Whatever you love most about spring, there’s no better way to enjoy it than by relaxing outside in your own beautiful outdoor living space


Let’s look at five ways to enjoy your Infinity Custom Homes backyard and make the most of this beautiful spring weather.


1) Turn your patio into an outdoor living room

If you’ve designed a beautiful patio or covered porch as part of your home, turn up the comfort factor and transform it into an outdoor living room. 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, we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!


2) Make s’mores with the kids

A back patio is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire pit. There are so many ways to incorporate this unique custom feature into your new Infinity home. 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, and set up blankets, pillows, low chairs, and of course, a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars. If you love the idea of watching your favorite shows in the balmy spring air, you can opt to mount a flat screen above your outdoor fireplace!


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 patio cozier and more welcoming. Or, incorporate custom recessed lighting into your patio or deck design. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave. 



5) Dine outdoors in elegance

Take advantage of mild evenings 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. If you envision cooking most of your meals outside during the warm months, opt for an outdoor kitchen complete with a grill, counterspace, sink, and fridge!


However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Infinity home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. Please contact us to get started designing your own outdoor oasis today!
