Indoor and Outdoor Living in ArizonaPosted 03/20/2018
Arizona residents have a lot of bragging rights when it comes to weather. With an average of 300 days of sunshine and about eight months of mild temperatures annually, it’s no wonder one of the hottest home design trends in the state is indoor-outdoor living.
From Arizona rooms to covered patios and courtyards, locals enjoy a multitude of ways to bring the indoors outside and the outdoors in. The popular trend has elevated the backyard from just an afterthought to an extension of the home where the boundaries between outside and inside no longer exist.
And, now that Spring has officially begun, what better way to celebrate the season than to tip our hat to some of the benefits of owning a home uniquely designed for the indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
Here’s a closer look at how our Maracay homes express this popular trend:
Two Worlds Collide
With features like oversized, corner sliding glass doors, there are so many ways to enjoy the weather outside while relaxing in the comfort of your home, whether taking a Sunday afternoon nap on the couch as the cool breeze blows in or listening to the sounds of nature while preparing dinner. Simply draw the blinds, pull back the glass doors and enjoy the best of both worlds.
It’s difficult not to invite the friends over for a weekend barbecue when the 10-day forecast shows sunny and 75. And, with so many outdoor amenities to choose from, there’s no excuse not to fire up the grill on any given day. Today’s backyards come fully loaded with custom pools, chic furniture, and full-service kitchens with appliances, grills, storage units and accessories. Not to mention, the latest designs in backyard bistros also offer high-end countertops and cabinets constructed with weather-resistant materials in shades that complement the metallic appliances placed between them. You’ve got everything you need under the sun. The only thing missing is the roof.
Seamless transitions from the kitchen and great room to the outdoor patio make alfresco dining a perfect option every night of the week. On cool evenings, simply light up the fireplace and enjoy some after-dinner drinks under the stars with the echoes of crackling wood as your soundtrack.
