These warm summer days and Carolina blue skies beckon us to dream of vacation destinations and some much-needed relaxation. Fortunately for our Destin homeowners, everyday can feel like vacation when they choose to create a private backyard oasis in this luxury new home community in Cary.
Destin’s spacious and wooded home sites provide a stunning backdrop for all of your outdoor living ideas. Whether you are considering an outdoor kitchen, covered living space, firepit, patio or all of the above, your Destin home builder can work with you to make your visions a reality-visions that will complement your custom-designed home as well!
When it comes to designing the perfect outdoor living space for your family, there are a variety of resources to help you including Pinterest, HOUZZ, and online websites such as HGTV.com/outdoors. Here are just a few of the ideas that you can incorporate into your Destin dream yard:
Pools: Just imagine walking out your back door and being able to take a dip into your very own, private pool. Destin’s spacious home sites allow you to take your backyard to the next level in resort-style living by adding a beautiful pool area. We cannot wait for you to see the incredible pool we are building for our 2020 Parade Home!
Seating: There is nothing more relaxing than comfortable seating for your family and friends to gather, reminisce and enjoy one another. You may want one large area with lounge chairs and ottomans or smaller conversational spaces scattered throughout the yard. Outdoor dining furniture also allows for both form and function when you choose a little fresh air with your meal.
Outdoor Kitchens: Speaking of food, an outdoor kitchen is a fantastic example of how to truly get the most of your gorgeous Destin backyard. For casual grillers, a simple concrete grilling pad may do the trick while the residential grill master may want to spice things up with a built-in outdoor kitchen complete with countertop space, refrigerator, food warmer and storage space! Your Destin home builder can talk you through various options and designs that are sure to get your mouth watering.
Lighting: Outdoor lighting has become a staple when designing back yard sanctuaries. You can hang whimsical string lights from existing structures, place sophisticated path lights along walkways, include up-lighting your home’s exterior, or enhance your plantings with inconspicuous spotlights. The options for lighting under your covered or screen porch are endless, ranging from rustic DIY options to elegant fixtures that complement the style of your custom Destin home. Motion detecting flood lights provide convenient area lighting and peace of mind.
Firepits or fireplaces: These structures, whether permanent or stand-alone, are always a magnet for relaxation and conversation. Not only are they beautiful but they allow you to enjoy your outdoor space year-round. Experiment with stone, brick, decorative tile, and stucco for fireplace surrounds and raised hearths.
Gardens: For those with a green thumb, consider a vegetable or flower garden. Leading to the garden could be a pathway of stone, pea gravel or pavers, and the entrance to your garden could be accentuated with a decorative pergola or arbor. One of those aforementioned seating areas would also be a nice touch!
Additional luxuries: Solidify the resort-style living vibe in your backyard oasis with sensory enhancements like timed misting systems (for your plants and your seating areas) and camouflaged speakers integrated with your whole-home audio system.
