Small Remodeling Project Makes Big Impact for Outdoor Entertaining
It’s the middle of summer and there is no better time to make the most of your outdoor living situation. With mid-year holidays and evening cookouts right around the corner, an exterior makeover could be just what you need. We recently had the opportunity to remodel one family’s back porch, giving it a brand-new look.
The home already sported a large back patio area, but we were excited to give it a beautiful and practical upgrade. We transformed the area into a large, smooth platform deck, perfect for hosting get-togethers or enjoying a relaxing night in with family. The rich new chestnut color ties in well with the tones of the roof, creating a unified look throughout the exterior of the house.
Another big improvement for this outdoor living project was the second-floor balcony. Instead of creating a large deck covering the entire patio, we decided to leave the majority of the space uncovered, allowing for more sunlight and fresh air to flow through. The balcony frames the beautiful bay windows on both levels of the house, and we converted the second-story bay window to French doors, giving access to the great outdoors from both the first and second stories.
Drawing from the tips on outdoor living posted in our last blog, Outdoor Living in Northern Colorado, we added in a cozy fire pit. This new outside asset will be an advantage all year round. The raised stone structure adds a modern element to the area, creating a cozy and sophisticated look.
