Adding an outdoor living room and/or dining room can add substantial square footage to a home. With a growing family, a home business and a large dog vying for space, it just made sense to move something outside. This family loves to entertain so the decision to add an outdoor dining room was a no-brainer.
Wide panes of glass and a back door that can usually be found open erase the distinction between the indoors and outdoors. Now the family does much of its dining on an outdoor patio just off the kitchen. The family also has a separate table with chairs on the courtyard for entertaining. Warm white lights are strung over the spaces, tying them together and adding ambient lighting for those late nights. A fountain adds white noise and will drown out any surrounding city noises. This space is functional year-round with its custom roll screens off the back patio, and is certainly an entertainer’s dream come true!
