Crafting Your Perfect Outdoor Haven in New England

With summer around the corner, we’re dreaming of more ways to stay outside. Ready to transform your backyard into a summer sanctuary? Read on for a guide to creating an outdoor space in New England you’ll never want to leave.

Here are some important design ideas when creating your al fresco living space.

 

Connected Decks and Cozy Sunrooms

Imagine stepping outside onto sprawling decks that beckon you to bask in the sunshine. Add in cozy porches or multi-season sunrooms where you can unwind with a book or take a leisurely afternoon nap. Our goal? To seamlessly blend indoor comfort with outdoor beauty, giving you the perfect retreat right at home.

    • Consider how and where your deck is connected to your home. Whether from French doors in your kitchen or a slider in your family room, we will work together to marry form and function in considering how your indoor and outdoor spaces are connected.

Covered and Uncovered Spaces

New England weather can be unpredictable, so we’ve got you covered—literally! From covered patios to pergolas, we’ll provide shelter from the scorching sun or unexpected rain showers. And for those clear summer nights, uncovered spaces let you gaze up at the starry sky and soak in the beauty of the outdoors.

Reimagined Sheds

Transforming outdoor sheds into serene hangout spots, yoga studios, or a kid’s playroom is a brilliant way to enhance your outdoor living scheme. These spaces can offer a tranquil retreat right in your backyard. With a little creativity and design flair, an ordinary shed can become a stylish sanctuary.

We built these homeowners a yoga and meditation sanctuary in their own backyard.

Outdoor Kitchen Delights

Say goodbye to being stuck indoors while you cook! Creating an outdoor kitchen lets you channel your inner chef while enjoying the fresh air and beautiful surroundings. Whether you’re firing up the grill for a summer barbecue, tossing pies into a pizza oven, or mixing cocktails, you can do it all without missing a moment of outdoor fun.

 

Electrical and Plumbing Essentials

Don’t forget about the nitty-gritty details! We’ll ensure your outdoor space has everything you need- from strategically placed power outlets and speakers to plumbing for sinks, showers, and water features. Plus, with lighting, ceiling fans, and heating elements, you can enjoy your outdoor oasis day or night, rain or shine.

 

Furniture Fit for New England

When it comes to outdoor furniture, you’ll need durable, weather-resistant pieces that are as stylish as they are comfortable. Think teak, cedar, or all-weather wicker paired with plush cushions made from fade-resistant fabrics like Sunbrella. Add in shade solutions like umbrellas or pergolas, and you’ve got the perfect setup for lounging, dining, or entertaining.

With versatile furniture arrangements and thoughtful design elements, we’ll create a space that’s uniquely you.
