Outdoor Living Space Ideas For Your Home

Jun 20, 2024


As we embrace the beauty of each season, our outdoor living spaces become an extension of our homes—a sanctuary where we can relax, entertain, and create lasting memories with family and friends. At Stranville Living Master Builder, we believe in crafting homes that not only meet your needs but also inspire you to live your best life, both indoors and outdoors. Whether you’re looking to enhance your current backyard or considering purchasing one of our exquisite homes, we have fabulous ideas to help you transform your outdoor space into a true oasis. 

Extend Your Dining Room Outdoors 

Imagine savouring a delicious meal under the open sky, surrounded by nature’s beauty. Extending your dining room into the backyard is a fantastic way to enjoy al fresco dining. Here are some essentials to get you started.

1. Outdoor Dining Furniture

Invest in a sturdy, weather-resistant dining set that can accommodate your family and guests. A large table with comfortable chairs will ensure everyone has a seat at your outdoor feasts. 

2. BBQ

No backyard dining area is complete without a grill. Whether you prefer gas, charcoal, or a smoker, having a grill will make outdoor cooking a breeze. Or make your Alberta backyard the favourite spot amongst friends with a pizza oven! 

3. A Classy Umbrella

To shield you and your guests from the sun, add a large patio umbrella. Choose one that is adjustable and provides ample shade.

Create a Relaxing Outdoor Space 

Your backyard should be a place where you can unwind after a long day. Creating a relaxing lounge area will give you a cozy retreat right at home.

1. Lounge Chairs

Opt for cushioned lounge chairs or a stylish outdoor sofa where you can kick back and relax.

2. Coffee Tables

A couple of small coffee tables will provide space for drinks, snacks, or even a good book.

3. Outdoor Decor

Enhance the ambiance with string lights, lanterns, or fairy lights. Add some potted plants and flowers to bring in colour and fragrance.

Fun and Play for the Whole Family 

A backyard that caters to all ages will make it a favorite spot for everyone. Here are some additions that will bring joy to both kids and adults.

1. Playground

A safe and fun playground with swings, slides, and a sandbox will keep the little ones entertained for hours.

2. Pool or Hot Tub

If space allows, a pool or hot tub can be a wonderful addition. Whether it’s an in-ground pool or a stylish above-ground one, it promises endless summer fun. And a hot tub provides year-round relaxation! 

Cultivate Your Green Thumb 

Gardening is a rewarding hobby that brings beauty and bounty to your backyard. Here are some ideas to get you started.

1. Raised Garden Beds

These are perfect for growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers. They’re easier to manage and add an organized look to your garden.

2. Garden Shed

A shed provides storage for your tools, pots, and garden supplies, keeping your backyard tidy and functional.

Stranville Living Homes: The Perfect Backdrop 

Many Stranville Living homes feature walkouts or back onto beautiful scenery such as lakes, parks, or green spaces. These locations provide the perfect backdrop for your enhanced outdoor living space. Imagine stepping out from your dining room onto a beautifully crafted deck that overlooks a serene lake or a lush park. It’s not just about the view; it’s about creating a lifestyle that merges luxury with nature.
