Last year taught households to make the most of their life at home and in response a greater focus was placed on at-home entertainment and leisure. This trend is expected to persist as people have come to embrace the concept even as life returns to normal. To avoid feeling too “cooped up” however, homeowners are expressing a desire to expand beyond the confines of their interior square footage. They want to extend their living space with a larger and/or more highly-functioning outdoor deck.
As North Vancouver BC’s landscape design service we make this dream a reality. We create engaging outdoor patios complete with furnishings, appliances, and other features to make your deck an epicenter of all-season entertainment.
Building an outdoor living space can mean many different things. You may want an eating area equipped with an outdoor kitchen. You may be looking for a calm and quiet space to sit next to a fire bowl, or a custom fire place amongst your garden. You may be looking for a nice day bed to lounge on beside your pool. The options are truly endless, but Calumma will ensure your vision is met with knowledge and expertise in not only the design aspect, but also the construction.
Cooking and eating outside is perhaps one of the most enjoyable things to do. Building an outdoor kitchen is the best way to do this. Typically an outdoor kitchen is built on a concrete slab foundation. There are many ways to finish your kitchen - whether it be stone, wood, concrete or steel, having a proper foundation is important to ensure longevity of the structure. You may require a gas line for the barbecue and electrical for a fridge or receptacles. It’s important to have a design created first, so these utilities can be mapped and properly installed before building your dream kitchen. Our kitchens are custom built on site to ensure all of your appliances are perfectly fit so you can have a perfect space to look at and use while spending those memorable hours outside preparing your favourite dishes for your family and friends.
We all love sitting by a fire. When planning your fire pit or fire place, Calumma’s construction team does it right. Much like a kitchen, you will require gas and electrical lines, as well as a proper foundation. But aside from the construction aspect of it, we will design that space to accommodate the perfect amount of people you dream to have sitting with you. Whether its a unique flooring pattern, decorative stone wall, specimen plants or trees, designing your fire pit patio will really make a focal point in your space.
If you plan to build a pool, you’re going to want a space to have to sit beside it. Building a custom patio to fit a day bed or pool lounge chairs will ensure you have space to lounge around, bake in the sun, have a nice mid day nap or read a book. Our designs are made to lay out furniture in a specific position and place. Unless specifically requested, we don’t often design large expansive patios without having well thought out and dedicated furniture areas. Your space will be truly stunning if it is designed to fit your desired amount of furniture.
