Days are getting shorter and to-do lists are getting longer, but if you want to be sitting pretty in spring and beyond, now’s the time to get cracking in your backyard. Afterall, Santa Clarita is known for exceptional weather nearly year-round. Why not take full advantage of it?
Your perfect patio can be planned now and executed over the winter and early spring. The result can be a space that is equally comfortable in July as it is in January.
What to put on the wish list? Deluxe skylights, remote-controlled blinds and shades, radiant heaters, top-notch stereo and surround sound, a custom fireplace with blower, ceiling fans, LED lighting, coordinating roof materials and a clever transition from yard to house should all be considered.
Each of these will positively contribute to year-round outdoor-living pleasure and pride of space, especially when you utilize today’s technology to bring it all together. For example, you can save energy by putting your lights and heaters on timers; open and retract your skylights, blinds, and shades with remotes; and even control your stereo, television and pool temperature from the convenience of your iPhone.
Ultimately, though, the most important element is the right contractor.Connect with someone who sees your vision and has the skill, experience, and resources to bring it to fruition.
