Usually, decks or patios are built to enlarge the living space in a home. They also allow the circulation of air and natural light to come in. The decks and patios of luxury homes are long and spacious. Some are even 85 feet long. A deck or patio area can be used as a private sanctuary, study area, a place for relaxation and more. They can also be completed and decorated with sofas, pillows, tables, folding chairs, plants, etc.

Decks are often times strategically placed overlooking a spectacular view.

3. Outdoor Kitchens

Barbecue and pool parties are quite popular in the United States and Denver – especially during summer. Some homeowners do not like the idea of going in a public place just to bond with their family. They want to swim, bond and eat with their loved ones without feeling restricted in any way. This is also the reason why outdoor kitchens have become popular. If you have an outdoor kitchen, you can have unlimited food choices. You can cook any type of dish you like. Luxury outdoor kitchens also give homeowners the privilege to eat without going inside their house (I.e. You can play cards or board games while eating). You could fully furnish a luxury outdoor kitchen with stainless steel appliances, multi-purpose grills, weatherproof cabinets, wood-burning stoves, and fireplaces.
