Central SC Deluxe Outdoor Living Spaces

The definition of the adjective deluxe means of special elegance, sumptuousness, or fineness; high or highest in quality, luxury, etc. The origin of the word is from the French word de luxe, of luxury.

There is no denying the appeal of what we call a deluxe outdoor living space. These outdoor living combination spaces marry the function and aesthetic elements of two or more outdoor structures allowing them to function as one large space. You may also see these versatile spaces referred to as “outdoor rooms” in the media. Archadeck of Central SC has watched the popularity of this type of outdoor living environment soar to new heights over the past few years. Homeowners have developed an increasing desire to transfer more of the assets and luxuries of interior living to the outdoors.

Steps to a deck and screened porchTo appreciate the concept of deluxe outdoor living, you only need to consider the parts of your home you use for relaxing, entertaining and other recreational activities: the living or family room, the dining room, the kitchen, a parlor, media room or playroom. Now, simply take those areas and think about moving their functions outside, and voilà… you have discovered the appeal of the deluxe outdoor living combination space!

The only difficult part for homeowners considering a combo outdoor living space addition is deciding which structures to combine in order to gain the most benefits for their individual needs! Quality designed and built outdoor structures are a lot like potato chips… it’s hard to stop with just one!

With that in mind, take a look at some examples of Archadeck of Central SC deluxe outdoor living spaces in our video featured on our YouTube channel:

The Deck & Porch or Patio & Porch Combination

Deck, covered porch, and outdoor kitchen combination

Choosing a deck and porch, or patio and porch, outdoor living combination is for the homeowner who wants to “have their cake and eat it too.” Decks and patios offer open air outdoor living spaces that are easily complemented by seating walls, a pergola and outdoor kitchen or even an outdoor fire feature. The only limitation to an uncovered outdoor living space is that in some circumstances, the weather can affect its functionality. By combining a patio or deck with an open porch or screened porch you and your family will have a haven when the weather becomes unfavorable and a shady spot to enjoy on even the sunniest of days. Porches can be designed to include a wealth of creature comforts such as ceiling fans, TV, wet bar and more.

The Deck & Patio Combination

Decks are the epitome of outdoor living spaces. They are as American as apple pie, and most homeowners begin their outdoor living combinations with a deck and branch out from there. Decks complement almost every outdoor living structure, from pergolas to patios.

Patios, in particular, look good and function well when used in a deck and patio combination. This is due to the natural flow created when a deck gently descends into a patio. The combination opens up and extends your outdoor living space, enhancing it. There are more factors at work here than just the added space a deck and patio provide — much more. Decks are generally built from wood or a natural-looking “wood-toned” synthetic material, whereas patios are built from natural stone or hardscape materials that emulate the look and feel of stone. Wood and stone are elements that flow well together. Even in nature, if you look closely you may catch the beauty of a babbling brook laden with stones and hardwoods weeping gently over the bank.
