Designing the perfect outdoor space for your Atlanta home
When designing the perfect outdoor space, three of the most important features for (in addition to lush landscaping) are an outdoor living area, a functional outdoor kitchen, and beautiful paved surfaces. When properly executed, these three outdoor design elements have all the qualities to infuse the needed charm and function into your yard.
The Outdoor Living Area
A functional, durable and spacious patio is easily the most important element of your outdoor space. Your goal in designing the patio is to extend the comfort of an indoor room to your outdoor space. But you want to do this while considering the outdoor environment’s unique characteristics. This means designing your patio to give it the functionality of an indoor room without losing its outdoor feel.
Designs Ideas for the Unique Outdoor Kitchen:
- Pay attention to privacy by selecting an area alongside your fence or house. Adding a pergola or trellis can help shield the space from prying eyes if you have a freestanding structure.
- Install a fire feature to recreate the feeling of a roaring bonfire where members of the tribe gather after a long day of hunting and household duties.
- Add a feeling of luxury by using these oversized Techo-Bloc patio stones for your patio floors and to make stone steps around the fire pit or burner. Our experience is that patio pavers for Georgia outdoor kitchens from Techo-Bloc are unsurpassed in beauty and durability.
- Include stylish accessories and furniture, a selection of standard patio furniture with eye-catching colors or patterns, portable furniture, and accent tables.
“Whether your home follows a traditional or modern look, there are endless paver styles to choose from,” comments the Techo-Bloc design team. “If you love a monochromatic color palette, you can choose from a variety of Techo-Bloc pavers. We color match across our collections, making it easy to mix in different products of the same color. For example, you can match our Graphix retaining wall with our Blu 80 Smooth pavers in Beige Cream to achieve a seamless look. You can also choose different colors within the same product category since most of our products are available in 3-6 colors!”
Beautiful Outdoor Kitchens and Bars
A beautiful outdoor kitchen lets you be part of the outdoor fun instead of stuck in a kitchen preparing meals. Here are a few ideas that will make a difference:
- An open-air kitchen with a rugged façade recalls visions of a rustic cottage while still incorporating all the features you would expect from a modern kitchen.
- An outdoor wood-burning oven for open-fire cooking with your yard enveloped in the aroma of freshly baked food making its way out of the inviting flames.
- An outdoor bar to complete the look of your kitchen can be an elaborate arrangement or as simple as you can conceive while achieving the functionality you need.
Durable & Attractive Pavers and Retaining Walls
Pavers, stones, and slabs help to inject an atmosphere of luxury into every aspect of your outdoor design. In fact, they supply the ruggedness needed to add authenticity to your yard while adding unparalleled beauty to the landscaping.
