Your home’s exterior can serve as an extension of its interior with the right features and built-ins. Whether you’re interested in building an outdoor kitchen, a gorgeous fire pit, or even a roaring fireplace on your patio, Elan Landscape Development can create all the custom built-ins Chicago homeowners could ever want.
Barbecues and cookouts are one of the most popular ways to entertain, and with a brick or stone built-in, you can do it with style. Imagine an outdoor kitchen, complete with stone countertops and a built-in combination grill. Because brick and stone are naturally fire-resistant, they’re the perfect materials to use for these projects. What’s more, they come in a variety of shapes, styles, and colors that will allow you to design your outdoor kitchen to be as unique as you are. Just add a brick or stone patio and an outdoor dining set, and you’ll have the perfect exterior space for entertaining. If your patio is enclosed, you can even add a wet bar and refrigerator.
Outdoor fireplace construction is becoming more and more popular in the Chicagoland area. There’s nothing quite like a warm, crackling fire to create a sense of relaxation and peace – and to keep you, your family, and your guests nice and warm on chilly days or nights. Imagine being able to read a book outside under the stars while warming your feet beside a roaring fire. With brick and stone fireplaces designed for outdoor construction, you can. It’s a great alternative to a traditional fireplace, and because there are so many design options from which to choose, you can add a rustic or modern touch.
Brick and stone also provide the perfect opportunity to create a phenomenal patio with a perfectly safe fire pit built right in. You can choose the colors and textures that best complement your home exterior, and then surround the fire pit with outdoor furniture that is comfortable and cozy. Other types of hardscapes you could consider include sandpits for the kids, stone seating, surrounds for hot tubs, planters, walkways, and even stone walls to line parts of your patio if you want additional privacy or more space for storage.
Brick and stone hardscapes add sophistication and style to your home’s exterior, and in many cases, they even improve your home’s value. Elan Landscape can help you with all your brick and stone built-in design and installation needs from start to finish.
