In recent months, Morning Star Builders has seen a steadily rising increase in the demand for outdoor living spaces. With people spending more time at home than ever, this doesn’t come as a surprise. Many homeowners are looking for ways to take their outdoor area to the next level, even with cooler temps on the horizon. Scroll below for five ways to do just that!

Screened-In Porches

Screened-in porches are a fantastic addition for anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors without dealing with pesky bugs. This outdoor design trend is versatile, as well. You can easily add a screened-in area to an existing outdoor deck or patio. Another option is to invest in motorized screens, which can be opened quickly to create a wide-open area.

Media and Entertainment

Incorporating media and entertainment options into your outdoor area only increases its functionality. Think sound systems, built-in speakers, and flatscreen television. A wired outdoor living area provides an extra spot for catching up on your favorite shows and keeping everyone entertained during family get-togethers.

Built-In Fireplace

Adding a built-in fireplace to your outdoor living space is just as functional as it is beautiful. A stone or brick fireplace is an excellent way to create a focal point in any outdoor space. More importantly, a built-in fireplace can extend the time you have to enjoy your outdoor living area because it will keep you warm as the temperatures start to cool.

Outdoor Kitchens

Take advantage of the gorgeous weather with a built-in outdoor kitchen. We’re not just talking about a grill here either! In addition to a cooktop, homeowners are opting to upgrade their outdoor kitchen with a built-in beverage fridge and plenty of counter space.

Outdoor Lounge

What goes perfectly with an outdoor kitchen? An outdoor lounge! Whether enjoying a meal cooked on the grill or simply hanging out with the family, an outdoor lounge is a great addition to any home. Plus, it pairs nicely with that flatscreen TV we mentioned earlier!
