Let’s continue our discussion of design ideas. We’ve talked about the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, and all sorts of concepts and ideas to consider as you work on your design.
Today, as spring and summer are here, it might be fun to take a look at outside living. During the summer months, everyone moves outside. The dining room table is replaced by the deck’s picnic table; the kitchen range is replaced by The Grill; and many times, the deck becomes another living room set aside for summer fun.
When you are designing your new home please take into account the easy with which you can get to the deck. Are there steps going down or is it flush with the inside floor. Those two or three steps can be a difficult thing as we Age In Place.
Having our outside living being accessible quickly and easily can make that deck or patio so much more enjoyable.
So many of the ideas we provide all entail proper planning in the Design Phase of your new home. Throughout the summer, you will love your new deck and the countless hours of relaxation out on the deck, plan carefully.
It is going to be so much fun!
