Plan An Outdoor Oasis For Your Home

by Special to Casa Latina on July 5, 2011

If you are thinking of making some improvements or additions to your home, outside may be the best place to get started.

Exterior additions and improvements are high on homeowner’s lists, according to the Better Homes and Gardens 2011 Consumer Preference Survey. So whether you want to make some improvements for selling your home, or just to enjoy for yourself, the planning our friends at Fiberon , have some tips to help you plan the perfect outdoor oasis.

Define the Space

An outdoor room could be the entire yard, or just a small part of it. Think about it having walls, a ceiling and flooring, just like an indoor room.

  • Walls are vertical elements that help define a space, such as hedges, trees, lattice screens, raised garden beds, railings, a gazebo or fence to frame your space.

  • Be sure to check on local building codes and permits needed before starting any construction.

Fire and Food

Use your outdoor room any time of day by planning a place to cook and eat.

  • An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a portable grill or as elaborate as your budget will allow. A DIY pizza oven can also be a fun way to enjoy cooking outside.
  • Fireplaces, fire pits and chimineas bring coziness along with great function – and they help extend the outdoor enjoyment in cooler weather.

Accessories

Just like indoor room, outdoor rooms benefit from appropriate accessor...
