*Spring hums solstice theme
Warm breeze wafts angels drift near
Long days salute love.
When the calendar turns to Summertime in Michigan, it’s as if Mother Nature herself sends engraved invitations requesting that we head outside. Michigan summers beg for dinner, entertaining, and family activities to move to the open air. Our lovely spring and autumn seasons offer equally impressive days of fantastic weather that solicit slowing down and appreciation for the wonder beyond our doors and windows.
If you have always dreamt about or are considering an outdoor kitchen or bar area, this post is for you! These enjoyable backyard spaces are at the leading edge of design for residential renovations. Luxurious decks and well-appointed patios extend the living area of your home, increase your home’s value, and grant a return on investment in both dollars and “sense” as you delight in comfort amidst the great outdoors.
One of the first decisions in executing an al fresco area will be to determine a functional and aesthetically pleasing connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Pivot or bifold patio, French, or vertical folding entries are available. Our in-house interior designers will assist in complimenting the opening and door with your home’s architectural style and make the transition seamless.
Outdoor entertainment areas and amenities vary greatly. They may include weather-friendly cabinets, durable stone, granite, or porcelain countertops, massive BBQ grills, wood-fired pizza ovens, kegerators, weatherproof televisions, movie screens…the list goes on.
The sky is the limit when determining your outdoor oasis. The talented team at Omega Home Studio can create detailed 3D elevation or concept design drawings to help you envision the transformation of your space.
A new outdoor design is a prime spot to showcase your personality, hobbies, and interests. Cooking for friends and family may be your passion. It could be hosting neighborhood games or movies. Sampling beer or wine on a deck with beautiful lighting may be your go-to way to decompress.
Indeed, at some point, some rain (let’s be honest, some snow) may fall, but a beautiful, covered deck or patio allows for year-round fun and helps to protect your investment from the elements; a roof also offers critical shade on the sunniest of days.
Portable heaters are available to warm up a chilly evening of outdoor charades. The addition of an outdoor fireplace provides much to the space; namely ambiance, comfort, and an alternative way to prepare that must-have outdoor delicacy; smores.
We invite you to experience timeless design and expert craftsmanship in your outdoor kitchen or entertainment area; bringing your remodeling ideas to life is what Omega Home Studio designers and craftsmen do best.
