The summer time is the perfect time of year to have friends over, enjoy the weather, and sit outside. But there are ways that you can make your CT home more roomy and enjoyable during the summertime and even for the rest of the year.
Designer CT Deck
One of the best ways to increase your homes space for entertainment and relaxation is to put in a new deck. Although your home may not be big if you have room in your backyard you can install a large deck. Each deck is customized to each home so you can choose what you want your deck to look like, the area it covers and the materials that are used. Putting in a deck that has two or three levels allows you to separate a space to hangout and put a table and chairs to eat and a place to grill and prepare food. Also a deck can offer a place to check on your kids or animals and in the summer time catch some rays.
Part of the summer is being able to grab a cold drink laying out in a chair or hammock and enjoying the weather. Since the summer heat is so intense it helps to take a mid afternoon nap or 'siesta' to wait out the hottest part of the day. What better way to enjoy a little afternoon nap then in a comfortable hammock under the shade of two trees. Also if you want to get some sun lying out on a lounge chair on your lawn or deck is a great way to work one your tan.
With a grill food just tastes better and is much healthier then frying or baking. Also since the summer allows you to grill outside without freezing you can do it a lot more. A perfect summer dinner is some food hot off the grill and eaten at the table on your deck. Also with a grill you can prepare a lot of food for a lot of people, so if you are entertaining the grill is the way to go.
Since the heat and humidity raise so much in the summer it brings many types of bugs with it. During the day and especially at night the bugs get annoying and can put a damper on your night. Invest in a few citronella candles or tiki torches to make your nights outside more comfortable.
There are many things that you can do to your home that will help you enjoy your summer more. If you start by putting in a CT deck you can increase your space to entertain, relax, and dine outside. From there if you have a place to hangout in the afternoon like a lounge chair or hammock you have the chance to really relax and unwind.
