Thinking about designing an outdoor living space for your Indianpolis home?

screen porch - carmel indianaOne of the most popular home improvement trends is to focus on the outdoors. Outdoor spaces such as decks, patios, screened porches and pergolas are all popular trends in the Indianpolis area.

An outdoor patio area can be a great place to entertain guests. Popular materials for outdoor patios can be concrete..either standard concrete or stamped concrete or exposed aggregate. Patio areas can also be constructed of natural or synethetic stone and they can also be brick, or concrete “brick look” pavers.

No matter what material you choose, pick a style and color that compliments your homes’ style.

With the popularity of decks, porches and pergolas, extending the indoor style and feel to outdoor living spaces is all the trend. Extend your interior design colors to your outdoor area, along with your furnishings.

Everything from outdoor fireplaces and sound system and television are possible. Use whicker furniture with sofa cushions upholstered with a color to compliment the surroundings. The trend is to make the outdoors feel like home.

Patio roof coveringBeing able to enjoy the outdoors, without enduring direct sunlight can be accomplished with a patio roof structure. Basically, a structure open on all exposed sides with a roof system above. Some are free-standing, and others attach to your home near the backdoor.  These projects can also be equipped with lighting and ceiling fans, etc.

Each space is different.  Whether it is a deck with a pergola, OR a screen porch with full amenities such as a grill, fireplace, and separate dining area, you can make your backyard your own.  Design it to match your family’s lifestyle and needs.

But, dont forget to hire a professional. Someone that can not only build it, but design it! As mentioned, your outdoor area should compliment your home. This is especially important with structures that attach to your home. They should always blend in seamlessly with the existing home and look as if it was always there, NOT like it just landed!
