5 Fantastic Built-ins for Luxury Outdoor Living

An outdoor living space can become a beautiful extension of your Colorado home. When planning an outdoor living space, consider incorporating built-in features, which offer space-efficient function and long lasting beauty and durability against the elements.

Built-in Seating

Not only does built-in seating free up space but it is also more durable than most outdoor furniture and is incredibly versatile. Plus, seat cushions can be switched out each season for a whole new look. Don’t forget to add colorful pillows and few throws for cool evenings.

Built-in Outdoor Fireplace

A built-in outdoor fireplace adds comfort and ambiance to spaces for enjoyable outdoor living year-round. Double-sided fireplaces allow for even more access to warmth and beautiful flickering flames. Fireplaces can be complemented with built-in log storage to protect logs from getting wet while keeping them in convenient reach.

Built-in Storage

Built-in storage can be used for recreation equipment, cushions, pillows, swimming pool inflatables, or other outdoor living or entertaining essentials. Plus, well-designed storage can easily double as built-in seating, making it an especially great use of space.
