Overhaul Your Yard with These Great Outdoor Living Spaces

Luxury home with beautiful pool and yard

With so many Canadians spending more time outdoors, it’s no surprise that homeowners in the Greater Toronto Area are overhauling their properties to create great outdoor living spaces. The exterior of your property should be just as enticing as the interior, and with GBC Design & Build, you can make your outdoor space dreams a reality.

Whether you’re looking for a place to soak up the summer rays with the family, or an entertaining hub for friends and neighbours, you’re sure to find an idea for your outdoor living space here.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, so why wouldn’t it be the heart of a great outdoor living space? Outdoor kitchens are trending in landscaping and exterior design right now, and it’s a great time to hop on the trend.

Gone are the days of lawn chairs and patio umbrellas. Modern outdoor living spaces are opting for full dining tables, often in durable materials like stainless steel or weather-sealed hardwood. Along with these chic redesigns, you will see outdoor cooking stations complete with sinks and refrigerators.

Show your friends and neighbours who have the best grill in town by cooking up a Canada Day feast in your new outdoor kitchen.

Cozy Up by the Outdoor Fireplace

Sitting around a fire is not a new concept in Ontario, but what you may not have seen yet are the beautiful new outdoor fireplaces so many homeowners are selecting this year. Drawing on all the cozy vibes of your living room fireplace, these outdoor fireplaces are often designed for warmth, aesthetics, and practicality. Some Canadians even choose to combine the outdoor kitchen and fireplace concept with a brick oven or woodstove.

An outdoor living space with a pool and fireplace also increases the value of your property if you are looking to sell. Great outdoor living spaces improve curb appeal.

Create a Spa Experience at Home

A day at the spa is the ultimate act of relaxation, but why leave when you can get the same experience at home? A day of lounging by the pool, soaking in the hot tub, and sunbathing on your beautiful new deck are just some of the ways to bring your love of the indoors outdoors.

Great living spaces should be filled with things that make you feel happy and comfortable. This is why an outdoor living space with a pool, fireplace, hot tub, and deck is the best kind. Surround the space with flowers and garden paths, and you’ll never want to leave.
