Does the approaching holiday season trigger thoughts of outdoor living? It should! Since we can give you a space that is comfortable year round.
The holidays can mean joyful hugs and sweet conversations, the coziness of a warm fire indoors or out, making memories, honoring traditions and enjoying good times. So, what do these holiday activities have to do with outdoor living? Let’s look around!
Add outdoor living space to accommodate a growing family
As your family grows, your home may feel cramped when you’re entertaining during the holidays. As your children get married, you add spouses and grandchildren and boom! Suddenly you’ve outgrown the space you have. Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas or any other celebration, the more the merrier! If you need more space but don’t relish the idea of adding an indoor room, look to outdoor living to get you through!
Akron OH sunrooms – space for the holidays and beyond!
The most climate-controlled option for adding outdoor living space is an Akron OH sunroom, sometimes called a 4-season room, because it is tied into your home’s heating and cooling system. A sunroom serves several purposes during the holidays … and all year long.
A sunroom can provide the perfect “overflow” space when you’re entertaining. Do you have one or more “children’s tables” for big holiday meals? They will love getting to eat in the sunroom. Want to invite 30 more people to your holiday party? A sunroom will give your guests more room to mingle under the mistletoe.
Archadeck of Akron can design a sunroom with a higher ceiling than that of the rest of your house. Finally, a space for a taller Christmas tree! A sunroom addition with a vaulted ceiling can do that for you. And any time of year, a sunroom full of windows will bring the outdoors in, visually, while also keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
Akron OH 3-season rooms let you work with the weather … when it suits you
Our Akron clients love their 3-season rooms and all the ways they make holiday entertaining easier. A three-season room offers many of the advantages of a sunroom except they’re not tied into the home’s HVAC system. What we love about a 3-season room is the way you can open sliding window panels when you want to reveal screens and let fresh air circulate. Then, if it’s too cold or too hot outside, just slide the window panels closed to keep those temperatures outside!
Like sunrooms, three-season rooms can provide festive overflow space. If you love holiday decorating, here you gain another room to show off your flair for holiday décor. Add a second Christmas tree in your new Akron OH outdoor room! To keep a 3-season room cozy, close the windows and add a couple of safety-rated space heaters or … add an outdoor fireplace. That’s right! A 3-season room with a fireplace will be everyone’s favorite spot, holidays or not.
Akron OH screened porches can be your new “holiday central”
Do you and your guests need an escape when the house is so full of holiday cheer, lights and warmth you just have to get outside for fresh air? Screened porch builder Archadeck of Akron can design the perfect screened porch to meet your needs. for year-round enjoyment. Again, another room to decorate for the holidays! Another option for adding an outdoor fireplace. And the perfect place for coolers so guests don’t have to keep opening your refrigerator for beverages.
Akron OH outdoor kitchens double your food prep space
Ever feel like you need two kitchens during the holidays? By adding an outdoor kitchen on your deck, porch or patio, suddenly you have twice as much space to prepare big meals. Suddenly barbeque might sound as good or better than turkey. With an outdoor kitchen, you can offer your guests tasty meats and veggies from the grill or smoker. If you’ve been wanting to fry a turkey, how about doing that OUTSIDE … safely … in your outdoor kitchen?
Akron OH families and guests gather ’round outdoor fireplaces and fire pits
When the holidays bring family and friends together, there is no better place for cozy conversation than before an outdoor fireplace or fire pit designed and built by Archadeck of Akron. We can incorporate a fireplace into the design of a porch or three-season room.
A fire pit is a wonderful addition to a new patio, and we can even design a new deck for you with a fire pit. Everyone gravitates to the fireplace or fire pit, and that scenario is multiplied during the winter holiday season.
Plan now for your 2019 holidays with an eye to adding outdoor living spaces to accommodate more family members and guests. Start now to have your space ready for the early summer holidays, waiting till spring will be too late since we have already started booking spring projects. While you’re enjoying this year’s seasonal celebrations, look around your home for ways a new outdoor living space could make next year’s dinners and parties more enjoyable for everyone.
