In Kitchener, ON, there’s something about bringing things that are conventionally indoors out onto your patio that really makes the summer months more enjoyable. It gives you a chance to enjoy the open air while still relaxing with loved ones. Allow a Unilock Authorized Contractor to help you construct your summer backyard retreat. With the variety of options available from Unilock and the design expertise of an Authorized Contractor, you can finally have the landscape you’ve been dreaming of. Here are some ideas for your outdoor living space:
An Outdoor Kitchen with All the Modern Conveniences
One example of the kind of indoor luxury you can experience outdoors with the versatility of Unilock products is the creation of an outdoor kitchen area. You can further customize this area with a pizza oven, built-in grill station, or even a bar. The design possibilities are endless. Adding a kitchen to your outdoor living area or patio creates a gathering point where you can cook your favorite meals in a full-sized kitchen, while still enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. Consider the rich natural textures of Rivercrest Wall, or the sleek modern elegance of Lineo Dimensional Stone for attractive vertical features that will enliven your outdoor kitchen area.
The Warmth of a Fireplace
Another element typically enjoyed in the home that can be brought outdoors is a fireplace. A fireplace can help you relax at the end of a long day and extend your outdoor entertainment into the evening. Outdoor fireplaces combine the comfort and warmth of a fire with the freshness of the great outdoors by directing the smoke up and away from your patio. Unilock pre-built fireplaces ensure that you don’t have to give up functionality in favor of design. Unilock offers a range of pre-built fireplaces that fit a variety of popular design aesthetics.
A Sheltered Entertainment Area
Another excellent way of bringing the indoors outdoors, is by incorporating a pavilion, pergola, or portico. Adding covering to your entertainment areas can help shelter it from sun and poor weather. By creating a sheltered entertainment area, you have also created the perfect space to add a TV to make your space even more enjoyable. You can further customize your outdoor living area by personalizing the footings of your overhead covering with Unilock wall units, such as Brussels Dimensional Stone. This can help to continue the appearance of your vertical features and match the structure to the aesthetic of your patio. Pair Brussels Dimensional Stone with Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers, Copthorne accents and Brussels Fullnose coping for a luxurious patio with traditional charm.
A Comfortable Outdoor Living Room
One last element that can be brought out into your outdoors is the living room. Recreate a seating area with couches and tables to have a place to kick back and relax after a long day of summer activities. Surrounding theses areas with seat walls can help to give the area a sense of enclosure while still allowing you to enjoy the outdoors. For a more subtle means of sectioning off the area, consider incorporating a paver rug into your patio design. Just like the area rug in your living room, a paver rug can do a beautiful job of keeping the seating area visually distinct from the rest of your patio.
