It used to be that Pennsylvanians only had a few choice months out of the year to enjoy the great outdoors. Then came HGTV and Pinterest and we all became inspired to create awe-worthy homes and landscapes of our own.  When it comes to living the good life, the outdoors is the new indoors. Luxe Harrisburg outdoor living is a growing trend. As it well should. Embracing your outdoor spaces with the same approach as your indoor decor will help you create a comfortable and cozy area that you and your family won’t want to leave. Let’s explore some of the ways that you can start to dream big about your outdoor space.

Above and Beyond the Grill

Outdoor kitchens have become very popular and are often a family staple in the summer. They can include an entire kitchen area made of granite, pavers, and durable Outdoor materials. They can feature everything from pizza ovens, counters, bar area, refrigerator, and yes even the kitchen sink. Or they can upgrade the basic with a built-in grill and al fresco dining area. There are many options that fit every size space, purpose and price range.

Another Way to Live

Living rooms are not just for the indoors anymore. Unlike decks or patios, an outdoor living room is sheltered from the elements by a covered structure, which means it’s a far less expensive way to add an extra room. What sets it apart from other outdoor dining or lounge areas is that it’s attached to the home, facilitating the connection between indoors and out. Add some comfortable lounge furniture and even outdoor audio and video and you have all your creature comforts without being relegated to the indoors.

Big Dreams, Small Impact

In this day and age, living large also means living smart. Many of the latest backyard trends take a page from the larger movement toward sustainability and embracing nature. Natural landscapes can include a babbling brook flowing through your garden, a hidden alcove among the trees, or simply a lovely vista to gaze on while relaxing. And to highlight the beauty of your landscape at night energy efficient LED lighting. The latest technology can change your lighting as the evening wears on, dimming some lights, making others brighter, turning others off, thereby creating different scenes. There is even an option to change light colors for holiday themes. The best part: they are hands off on your end.
