Top Outdoor Living Features from Womack Custom Homes

Many homeowners have long appreciated the extension of the home that a thoughtful outdoor living space provides for both entertaining and daily enjoyment. With so many people spending more time at home in the last few years, backyard escapes have only become bigger, better and more necessary, than ever before.

Thanks to Georgia’s short, mild winters, there is plenty of time to enjoy outdoor living spaces – even year-round in some cases! The Womack Custom Homes team rounded up the top outdoor living features clients are looking to add to their current home or new design-build project.

Outdoor Kitchens + Wet Bars

Of all outdoor living space features, outdoor kitchens and/or wet bars reign supreme. Offering the ultimate social gathering space, outdoor kitchens provide the perfect areas to entertain friends and family while food is prepared and grilled, and wet bars offer convenience for celebrations in preparing drinks with sinks, beverage coolers and kegerators.

Built-In Entertainment

Many outdoor kitchens and wet bars offer a backdrop to mount a TV, and surround sound brings it all together for the perfect game day experience. Extend common living areas by integrating entertainment into the screened-in porch area as well.

Year-Round Usability: Got You Covered

In typical Georgia fashion, it is not uncommon for temperatures to linger around 80 degrees or a sudden rain shower to appear. From providing shade on hot summer days to shelter during rain pop-ups, a covered patio allows you to enjoy outdoor living spaces in any type of weather.

Fire Away

Whether gas or wood-burning, outdoor fire pits, fireplaces and fire tables are a common staple for outdoor living spaces. Fire elements are reminiscent of traditional campfires, perfect for toasting marshmallows or simply setting the ambiance for cozy evenings outside.

Fan of a Breeze

Sweltering summer days often feature little to no breeze, so incorporating outdoor fans is crucial to beating the heat. Be sure to select a fan intended for the outdoors with long, skinny blades that draw in more air and push it down for the perfect breeze.

Pool + Carriage Houses

Ideal for summer amusement, pool and carriage houses offer a true extension to the home with added storage and gathering space. Whether it is offering a guest retreat or a place to change and recover from a long pool day, carriage and pool houses are flexible and vary per household. Most poolside shelters feature slip-resistant flooring and low-maintenance materials that can withstand the elements, such as ceramic tile or marble.

The More Seating, The Better!

Whether it is comfy couches for curling up with a book on the screened-in porch or built-in benches around the fire pit, it is key to distinguish gathering places for visitors to mingle and spend time. Consider weatherized outdoor furniture for flexible seating options that are easily arrangeable based on the number of guests or type of gathering.
