Summer may be the most highly anticipated season this year, and there’s no better time than now to get your outdoor space together so that you can enjoy the long, warm days in ultimate comfort. With patios or roof decks included in each Sego home, and sizes ranging from cozy to grand, there are countless ways to dress these spaces up (or down) to reflect your style and share the best moments this summer with family and friends.
Here are five ways to enjoy your patio or roof deck and make the most of the beautiful summer weather!
1) Turn your patio or deck into an outdoor living room
Enjoy after-dinner drinks or long afternoons reading outside by going for the ultimate in comfort. Select a settee with overstuffed cushions, a soft outdoor rug, pillows for lounging, and a few light throws to keep cozy after the sun goes down. Add some lights or candles for ambiance and we promise your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space this time of year!
2) Enjoy s’mores with an outdoor fire pit
A concrete patio is the perfect spot for an outdoor fire pit. You can find them in an array of sizes and finishes to accommodate your space. The kids in your life will LOVE making s’mores, and you’ll love making sweet memories, around the (very controlled) fire in the comfort and safety of your own yard. What was once only an occasional camping experience can be an everyday treat at home.
3) Throw some shade
We love the bright Utah sunshine, but it can get a bit intense in the summer. If your home has an open deck, create a shaded area so that you can enjoy it any time of day. Opt for a cantilever umbrella so that you can maximize floor place. If your deck comes with a pergola, increase the shade by installing a retractable canvas canopy. Your outdoor space might just be the most comfortable room in the house.
4) Let the light shine
Lighting can make or break interior design, but did you know you can use light to completely transform your outdoor space, too? Use string lights, fairy curtain lights, or paper lanterns to instantly create ambiance and make your patio or deck cozier and more welcoming. When you add a pair of comfortable, cushioned chairs and your favorite beverage, you’ll never want to leave.
5) Dine outdoors in elegance
The most elegant meals can take place right in your own, private outdoor space. Create an unforgettable dining experience and celebrate that special occasion with formal dinnerware, candles, and a gorgeous tablescape. For ultimate luxury, have a catering company take care of all the cooking and cleaning up.
However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Sego home. We can’t think of a more peaceful way to enjoy the summer than right at home. For more information, please contact us at 801-850-2040.
