Easy Outdoor Living

Off the basement game room, this covered outdoor patio leads out to the backyard and pergola. The shaded area provides plenty of comfortable seating for relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors.

Naturally Neutral

Contemporary black-and-white upholstery brings a modern edge to the outdoor seating area, while the clean and simple lines of the coffee table pop against the stone backdrop.

Relaxed and Chic

Mixing natural textures like the woven poof and cream-toned throw into the seating area adds a calming vibe to the design and gives the space an easygoing feel.

Keeping It Handy

Multiple shelves in this modern console table provide room to store dishes, outdoor games, drinks and snacks. Having essentials visible in open shelving makes them easy to reach and more likely to be used.

Easy Transport

The removable shelves on the console table make it easy to carry snacks and drinks from the kitchen to this lower level and backyard space.

Hang Time

A pair of matching, modern swing chairs adds a funky twist to this end of the patio. The neutral color palette ties the seating to the rest of the patio and echoes the color scheme found inside the home.

Sitting Pretty

The strong, vertical shape of this hanging chair draws the eye upward and enhances how tall the covered patio space feels. A simple, modern side table in a natural brown tone plays off the chair’s frame and adds a place to set a drink while relaxing with the view.

Delineate Seating Areas

A simple stone column on the exterior of the home creates visual separation between the outdoor living spaces and defines each area as distinct and unique.

All-Weather All-Star

Low-maintenance, high-performance, eco-friendly decking can withstand changing weather and outdoor elements while still maintaining a polished style. Up above, an outdoor ceiling fan keep the breeze moving even on hot and humid days.

Nice Vista

An outdoor pergola sits at the edge of the yard for unrestricted views and provides a private place to relax and unwind.

Clean and Simple Style

Teak-wood chairs with cream-colored cushions make for an inviting spot underneath the pergola. The same decking that is used on the both the upper and lower deck of the home is used on the floor of the pergola.

Soft and Inviting

A warm throw in cream and gray softens this seating area while the modern wood side table is the perfect spot for a cup of coffee or glass of wine while relaxing.

Modern Serenity

Modern outdoor furniture in a lighter wood tone feels young and fresh. Vast, natural views provide the perfect backdrop for unwinding and resetting after a long week.

Illuminated for Evening Use

The outdoor pergola includes built-in lighting that allows an easy transition into the evening and keeps the space feeling warm and inviting.

Layered Yard

The sloped backyard allows for three levels of outdoor living from the upstairs deck to the covered lower patio and, finally, the custom-built pergola.

Cohesive Design

The staircase that connects the lower patio to the upper deck is constructed from the same gray and white decking materials, which is also the same material used to build the pergola.

Illuminated Beauty

The built-in lighting on the stair risers and newel posts keeps the staircase safe and accessible long after the sun has set.

Elevated Outdoor Living

With so much outdoor seating, the winner of the HGTV Smart Home 2020 will have plenty of options in which to enjoy this beautiful backyard.
