The Appeal of the Outdoor Living Combination Space

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.

Deluxe Outdoor Living Space

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 Hartford-Fairfield 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.

To 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!

Who isn’t interested in getting the most for the money? When it comes to an outdoor living space homeowners want to get the most benefit possible from their addition. It is only natural to yearn for the most aesthetically pleasing, enjoyment laden, functional square footage inclusive structure possible within your budget. Much like shopping for a new car, most of us are drawn to the one with all the bells and whistles… it is human nature. What if I told you that choosing to build a combination outdoor living space could provide you with all the “bells and whistles” in your backyard even on a budget? Sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t.

Many homeowners feel the backyard of their dreams is far beyond what their lifestyle can accommodate. Archadeck of Hartford-Fairfield reminds you that nothing could be further from the truth. We offer the option of building your outdoor dream in phases as your timing and budget allow. We can assist you in coming up with a “master plan” of your dream backyard and build it over a period of months, or even years. We recently completed a two-phase project for homeowners in Orange, CT. Timing was the main obstacle we were able to overcome by building this project in two phases.

Backyard deck

The first phase of the project included a spacious, low maintenance deck. The decking we used for this project is AZEK synthetic in the Silver Oak color.

Deck bridge

The second phase of the project consisted of constructing the freestanding pavilion that is accessible from the new deck via a bridge we created. The bridge physically separates the deck from the pavilion on purpose so the pavilion becomes a destination rather than a deck feature.
