Hybrid Living Spaces Allow Homeowners to Enjoy California Climate Year-Round

Lakeside Residence 2 Patio

The West Coast is known for its temperate climate and Kiper Homes is proud to build new homes that allow its homeowners to enjoy the California sun year-round! All Kiper communities offer a California room which enhances the interior and exterior livability of the homes as well as a variety of yard options: some feature pool-sized backyards to accommodate more elaborate outdoor living spaces, while some boast more intimate lawns to offer less yard-maintenance.

New California homes are now featuring spaces that blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. Here are some of our favorite backyard design ideas, as featured on the International Builders’ Show website:

  1. Folding or Pivot Windows and Doors

California rooms are the perfect way to bring the indoors, outdoors serving as one-part porch and one-part room with plenty of options, such as fireplaces or wet bars. Folding and pivot doors are the perfect solution to alternate between these spaces seamlessly! Fortunately for homebuyers, Kiper offers California rooms in all its communities!

  1. Fire Features

Fire pits are perfect for both small and oversized yards to be enjoyed in all seasons. Homeowners of small back yards understand the importance of perfect design elements, and we think a fire pit is the perfect fit!

  1. Outdoor Kitchens and Bars

Entertaining friends and family during is so much easier with an outdoor kitchen and/or bar out where all the action is! Whether they are situated around a pool, the patio or in the California room, outdoor kitchens and wet bars complete the perfect entertainment space.

  1. Water Features

Plants are known for their calming effects, but water is also an important element to enhance a tranquil, relaxed environment. Pools, of course, are an easy option if the yard can accommodate it, but more intimately-sized yards can also implement water features such as small fountains, waterfalls or a coin pond. Adding calming and relaxing elements to outdoor living spaces and backyards is the perfect way to create your own at-home oasis.
