Plainfield, IL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
A home’s square footage is no longer confined to its four walls. Today’s trends are favoring private, outdoor areas, like patios and courtyards, which extend a home’s living space to the yard. These outside living rooms become a homeowner’s outdoor oasis—and when designed correctly can add viable living space to the home; as well as scenic beauty, privacy, and the perfect arena for backyard entertainment. Patios and courtyards are extremely popular with new home buyers and are considered one of the favorite features available in the single family ranch and villa floor plans constructed by Wilcox Communities.
“We believe that a properly designed outdoor area becomes a natural extension of a homeowner’s indoor living space. By adding features like a fire pit, water features, furniture and landscaping to a courtyard or patio, it’s easy to achieve indoor comforts outdoors for relaxation and entertaining,” said Leigh Nevers, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
Depending on a homeowner’s budget and space, options for outfitting a patio or courtyard are virtually endless. For those who enjoy entertaining, an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, grilling area or bar are great additions. Or, to achieve an outdoor retreat for momentarily escaping life’s responsibilities, consider calming elements like water features, gardens and seat walls that blend seamlessly with the home’s landscaping to create a peaceful outdoor sanctuary.
Wilcox Communities has vast experience designing attractive and versatile outdoor patios and courtyards that complement its beautiful ranch and villa style floor plans. Landscaped patios are an option available in Wilcox’s Cathedral Series homes. Private courtyards come standard in their Courtyard Series homes with optional features available including covered or screened porches, as well as a variety of landscaping packages. Courtyards and patios provide customers welcomed privacy and extra comforts to their maintenance free homes.
“Buyers want an outdoor area where they could entertain family and friends. These beautiful outdoor rooms are easily one of the most utilized spaces in the homes. Whether it’s hosting a barbecue with friends or simply relaxing after a long day at the office, they create a warm, inviting feel for residents,” said Nevers .
