Indianapolis Custom Homes: Designing a Custom Patio

Penny Siml - Wednesday, May 11, 2016

If you’re building a custom home after dreaming about it for so long, why not create the perfect backyard patio? To help you get started, here are a few custom patio ideas to incorporate into your Indianapolis custom home.

Outdoor Kitchen

Imagine having all of your friends over in the summer for a cookout and not having to run back and forth between the backyard and the kitchen. With an outdoor kitchen, your patio will be a one-stop hosting station. Complete with a fridge, running water, and grill, so you can whip up enough food for the whole block or for an intimate family dinner.

Custom Fire Pit

What patio is complete without a fire pit? On a cool, crisp fall night, snuggle up with your entire family around the fire pit and talk, roast marshmallows, and enjoy the stars. Custom fire pits come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Your custom home builder will be able to create a fire pit that matches your patio and uses the same material. For a really great fire pit area, consider having built-in bench installed circling the pit.

A Bar

No Indianapolis custom home is complete without a patio bar. When your friends come over, you can entertain them outside and make your favorite cocktails. Custom bar tops make for a great place to belly up to and enjoy a drink after a long day or during a hot spell in the summer. There are so many different ways you can design your outdoor bar, too. From the classic tiki bar to a modern and sleek reclaimed wood bar, you can enjoy the outdoors and drinks.

A Patio Living Room

You love spending time with your family in the living room, but you also enjoy being outdoors. When you build an Indianapolis custom home, you can combine those two things. With today’s technology your outdoor patio can feel and look just like a living room. Complete the outdoor space with a couch and flat screen tv. Want to take the patio living room to the next level? Add an outdoor fireplace for an added level of style.

No matter the type of custom patio you want, it’s important to think about all of the options and possibilities of your custom home. If you’re building an Indianapolis custom home, then you want to make sure you have the right home builder.
