Craving a break from daily pressures? Are you looking to have the kids spend more time outside this summer? Choosing to skip the TSA lines and long plane rides? Seek no further than your own backyard for a soothing and convenient retreat all year round! We’re here to share the secret that you don’t need to travel far. All you need to do is create a staycation haven right at home by blending familiar, comfortable items, and elements that suit your way of life. With the right plan, design, and build partners you can transform your simple outdoor space into an enchanting staycation that you have access to 365 days a year. So here are some tips that can help turn your basic backyard into a staycation paradise:

  • Plan your layout & connect it to your home

When creating a new outdoor living area, it’s essential to design three zones that align with your lifestyle needs. For avid cooks, a large kitchen with high-end appliances and ample counter space is ideal. However, occasional outdoor cooks might prefer a basic grill. But we get that visualizing the actual size and style of a new space can be challenging without the proper tools and expertise. Unfortunately, many contractors lack the vision for the comprehensive space, they only focus on their feature. Of course, you would want to work with a company that specializes in their trade, but that will lead to a backyard that feels disconnected and perhaps out of place.

We understand the importance of visualization in crafting an ideal layout that seamlessly integrates with your home. This is why we help you create a custom 3D, full-color design and video to reveal the potential features for your new custom outdoor living space. This eliminates guesswork, enhances collaboration with your custom outdoor living space designer, and guarantees that you will feel confident in each element & feature you select for your new custom outdoor living space in the Lehigh Valley.
