Get Ready to Entertain with Your New Outdoor Living Areas

Summer will be here before you know it. Warm weather and longer days will sneak in when you aren’t looking. Weekend cookouts and pool parties will become the norm, and many an evening will be spent outside sipping lemonade and watching the sun go down. 

Outdoor living areas can enhance your summer experience in many ways. Whether you are a summer chef, a fish at heart, or an observer, your summer will be improved by some simple backyard adjustments. Here are a few of the ways you can change up your yard to make it perfect for you.

 

 

Resurfaced Pool Deck

No backyard pool is complete without a nice surrounding surface. A beautiful new surface surrounding the water makes for a much prettier and enjoyable backyard landscape. Add some chairs, a grill, and a table for the perfect summertime hangout.

Fire Pit

Everyone loves late summer nights sitting around a fire. Campfire songs and s’mores bring back wonderful childhood memories and create fond new memories too. Custom fire pits built into your deck are an excellent way to add to your outdoor living space, and are a perfect addition to any summer party. Be sure to keep fire wood handy for those impromptu hot dog roasts and you’ll be ready for a summer full of fun.

Covered Patio

Sometimes the summer sun is too hot to handle. During these days, a covered patio is an absolute life saver. A covered patio gives you the ability to spend time outside without sitting in direct sunlight, so you can enjoy the great outdoors without the sunburn and sweating to go with it. Additionally, a covered patio area with a fan blowing is the perfect setting for an afternoon board game on a hot summer day. 

 

If these items sound like a good addition to your summertime fun, we would love to help you out. Please contact us today at Allied Outdoor Solutions for more information. 

 

 

 

Add a Kitchen To Your Outdoor Living Area

Outdoor kitchens are becoming a very popular way to transform your backyard into the perfect area for entertaining your family and friends. If you enjoy entertaining and outdoor cooking, then it only makes sense to combine the two into your own personal backyard oasis. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of adding a kitchen to your outdoor living area

 

 

Outdoor Enjoyment 

Outdoor kitchens give you the ability to really enjoy the outdoors. You’ll have a lot more fun entertaining when you can grill up delicious and healthy foods during your next social gathering right in your own backyard. And cooking is not the only thing that you will enjoy about it. You can really expand your outdoor kitchen to include a refrigerator, an ice maker, a patio heater, and lots of furniture and other accessories. Let your cooking and your entertaining preferences and styles run wild. 

Adds Value To Your Home 

Outdoor kitchens are a great investment and can add a ton of value to your home. It’s one outdoor home improvement project that can give you a serious return on your investment. You will get nothing but the best in materials and components, making your outdoor kitchen able to withstand even the harshest weather.

Just Bought a House in Austin? Hire a Patio Contractor to Make Your Backyard Special

 

 

Austin, TX, has seen a dramatic increase in popularity over the past few years. It has become a major tech hub and it boasts Google Fiber, one of the fastest Internet providers you can get in the country. If you have just purchased a house in this growing and desirable city, you may want to make improvements. You might want more than just a pretty backyard, so hiring a patio contractor is just what you need.

Enjoy Safe and Attractive Flooring

With these professionals working on your property, you will get flooring that not only looks good, but is safe enough for you to feel confident when your family, friends, or coworkers walk around on the patio. Carvestone is a flooring that gives you a great deal of customization options. So, if you have a specific vision of how you want the patio to look, more likely than not, that vision can be realized.

Install an Outdoor Kitchen

If you want to increase the functionality of your patio, you should add an outdoor kitchen. In Austin, you will have warm temperatures throughout most of the year, so it is easy to use the patio for many months. Cooking outside is not limited to one season, so you are guaranteed to get your money’s worth.

Add a Fireplace

It may be hot during summer and fairly warm in the other seasons, but this does not mean that a fireplace is not a good addition. It can add a great deal of atmosphere to your backyard patio. You can bring out a book in the middle of the night and get just enough light from the fireplace alone to read comfortably.

When you want to add a patio to your backyard, you should not be swarmed with limitations. We strive to create a patio that fits all of your wants and needs. Contact us if you have any questions.

Trends in Outdoor Living Areas

Trends in Outdoor Living Areas

 

Outdoor living areas  have become increasing popular and more sophisticated over the past several years, with many elements once considered trendy now considered mainstream must-haves. Consider how hot tubs, for example, have gone from novelty luxuries to almost standard features, and not just in temperate climes. There’s nothing like soaking in a hot tub on a cold winter night, enjoying the splendor of the night sky without freezing to death!

Outdoor spaces have become more defined and functional and the choices in materials and design have greatly expanded. No longer is a simple outside deck the only standard outdoor space. Patios constructed of beautiful pavers, stone or concrete overlays mimicking stone provide a perfect stage for features such as

  • pergolas
  • fire pits
  • gazebos
  • outdoor kitchens
  • lighted dining and seating areas
  • retaining walls

and more. Consider the concept of a lovely circular patio with plenty of seating surrounding a blazing fire pit! Or imagine a beautiful outdoor kitchen with a nearby dining area. A far cry from yesterday’s charcoal grill and picnic table!

Allied Outdoor Solutions can create the outdoor living area of your dreams. Wherever your imagination takes you, we’ll follow with high-quality materials, planning assistance and expert installation. We’ve worked hard to gain a stellar reputation providing beautiful outdoor living areas in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and surrounding cities. We specialize in pavers, concrete and concrete overlay with a unique product called Carvestone, which provides the look of natural stone with twice the durability of concrete. We do patios, walkways, driveways, fire pits and much more! Browse our amazing gallery of past projects, and contact us to schedule a free consultation.

Three Ideas for Outdoor Living Areas That Add Style And Function

Three Ideas for Outdoor Living Areas That Add Style And Function

Many homeowners invest considerable time and resources into updating a large portion of their home’s interior, and with good reason. After all, your home is your castle, and if you truly want to reap the benefits of a comforting and inviting residence, you must make periodic updates. Often however, homeowners overlook the outdoor living areas when going over their update options. Sure, they address issues with the roof and siding when they become necessary, but what about adding style and function to outdoor spaces beyond those basic necessities? The following are three great ideas for outdoor living areas that add considerable style and function:

  1. Colors and Heat – Don’t be afraid to go bold when choosing accessories for outdoor patios and picnic areas. People tend to want to go neutral indoors because it is a safe option. The outside area is a little different because color goes so well with green grass and the blue sky and yellow sun of a warm summer day. This can easily be achieved with colorful lawn chairs, seat cushions for patio tables, and even a splash of color with various lawn ornaments and wind chimes. Another good idea is to add the warmth of a fire pit as a center piece to the patio. This provides a little added color and style as well, not to mention the function of making chilly winter nights a perfect time for gathering outside with drinks under some blankets
  2. Outdoor Kitchen – Why just have an almost mandatory grill with a few fold-up chairs for an outdoor cooking space when you can have a full-fledged, state-of-the-art kitchen? Think about installing more appliances like a refrigerator, a sink, and even a pizza oven for a little added distinction. Most people who create a second kitchen outdoors realize that it becomes a beautiful centerpiece for outdoor entertainment.
  3. More Living Space – Creating a second living area outdoors can be a wonderful way to add style and function. Set up cozy sofas, comfortable chairs, inviting tables and even decorative lighting in a way that people can gather for a variety of purposes. This way you and your guests are not restricted to being indoors for intimate conversation, friendly card games, and other activities suitable for a living area.

“Allied Outdoor Solutions” has over 25 years of experience in the Texas home improvement market. Please contact us today to schedule a free consultation for your outdoor living area project.
