While we are certain you have a few great ideas for how to use your new or soon-to-be outdoor living space by Archadeck of Salt Lake, we have a few favorites too. For us, outdoor living is all about family fun. Whether it is family by blood or family by choice, creating an outdoor living space with our help can give you a variety of opportunities for enjoying time with family and friends. From campfires to game night, we might have an idea or two you haven’t considered.
Campfires at the Fire Pit Daily
Of course, an outdoor fire pit creates a magical opportunity to experience the unique enjoyment only a campfire can bring. Whether it is sitting around the flickering flames with friends and great conversation well into the summer night or its marshmallows and graham crackers with the kids, there is just something perfect about a campfire. With a fire pit right in your backyard, you can create these special moments any day of the week!
Family Game Night on the Porch
Weather and Mother Nature do not always cooperate with our plans for outdoor time with the family. Covered porches, screened porches and 3-season rooms offer you a variety of protection from the weather so you can enjoy family game night or an outdoor meal even if it is raining, too hot in the sun, a bit chilly or the insects are out in droves.
A covered porch offers protection from rain and hot sun; a screened porch can do that as well as keeping the insects out, and a 3-season room can do it all with the added option of closing the windows to block out driving wind, rain or cold air. Eze-Breeze windows offer a variety of tints to their vinyl porch windows so you can choose to gain added protection from the hot sun, perfect for a west facing porch.
Dinner al Fresco on the Deck
Outdoor dining is a great way to utilize a warm spring or summer day. There is something distinct about enjoying a meal with family as the sun begins to lower itself towards the western horizon. Everyday dinners, special occasion barbecues or adult only dinner parties can be that much more enjoyable on your new Archadeck deck. Decks allow you to be up out of the grass for a clean and dry eating space. They give you a large space that can be large enough for the barbecue grill and the dining table. They allow your guests, no matter what their attire to feel comfortable in the space, giving you a choice for creating a casual evening or a formal event.
Yard Games with A Covered Porch or Pergola
There is a large variety of yard games gaining popularity among the young and young at heart. From classic horseshoes and corn hole to newbies like ladder golf and Kan Jam, enjoying an afternoon with friends and family can be fun and competitive. If the day gets too hot with the sun shining bright, this great fun can be cut short too easily. With the addition of a pergola or covered patio with BRIGHTCovers, you can enjoy a shady place to cool off in between rounds for an afternoon of fun that never has to end.
