Outdoor entertaining is a must for many homeowners — that’s why at Capstone, many of our floor plans provide easy access off the back of the home for cookouts and other gatherings. Because of this, many of our customers choose to add a patio or porch to extend their outdoor space. Here are some things you should consider when planning for these upgrades.
Access to the Outdoor Space
Many of our floor plans feature a sliding back door next to the kitchen or eating area. Of course, our team can also make a variety of upgrades for an even more stunning entrance to the deck or patio. Floor-to-ceiling doors or extra-wide sliding doors are just a few options to make it easier to get things in or out of the house when entertaining guests.
If the outdoor space isn’t easily accessible from the kitchen — or if you love to grill outside — you might want to include an outdoor kitchen as part of your porch/patio setup. A grill, mini-fridge, and other kitchen amenities will ensure you have everything you need right there with you. While Capstone doesn’t build the backyard space, by partnering with our trusted landscapers, you can build the outdoor cooking space of your dreams.
Electrical and Entertainment
Discussing your future outdoor plans with Capstone will ensure that the house is built in a way to support the work your hardscape contractor will finish. Many outdoor spaces now include appliances, TVs, and even internet access. Ensuring that the house has the right setup to power these future installations is an important detail to plan for to get the results you want.
An outdoor space that caters to your needs and preferences is sure to become one of your family’s favorite features. Our design team is ready to help you figure out how to incorporate your dream outdoor space with the rest of your home. Contact us today to get started!
