Take it outside: Patios perfect for holiday entertaining
Outdoor living areas continue to be the most popular special function in today’s new homes, according to a new AIA Home Design Trends Survey. Since 2012, the popularity of outdoor living spaces has spiked 72 percent, according to the survey.
Outdoor living areas might be even more popular in Texas, where our mild winters make it possible to enjoy these open-air spaces throughout the year. That’s great news for the holiday season, when many people have company visiting and the kids are on winter break. Nobody’s bound to get cabin fever when it’s so easy to open the patio doors and let the fun spill outside.
Sweetwater’s leading homebuilders showcase many possibilities for outdoor living spaces in their fully furnished model homes throughout the community. Visit our Model Home Gallery to see inspiring photos of outdoor living spaces with ample room for outdoor furniture, and popular options like outdoor fireplaces and kitchens.
Some of our model homes offer multiple outdoor living areas, offering spaces to gather around the fireplace in a secluded courtyard, or relax on a covered patio and take in the views of trails and greenbelts. Many plans also offer friendly front porches.
Use our Homefinder to search new Sweetwater homes with outdoor living areas, at prices from the $300,000s to over $1 million.
