Your Own Private Outdoor Oasis

Your Own Private Outdoor Oasis

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe that paradise is leaning back in a cozy chair with a cold drink on a sunny day. That’s why we build our spacious, energy-efficient homes with stylish outdoor living areas that provide the open space you need to spread out, get comfortable, and let the sunshine wash over you.

Outdoor Space.

 

No matter how you love to utilize outdoor spaces, from your screened-in porch and backyard to your light-filled sunroom, there are so many ways to maximize and decorate them to your heart’s content. Take a look at a few fun ideas to turn your peaceful, private outdoor area into an oasis:

 

Outdoor Design Ideas 

 

Throw Some Shade: Add a little flair (and much-appreciated shade) with a wide, sleek umbrella. If you love to throw dinner parties, choose an umbrella with LED lighting to create a warm, stylish glow during any soiree. 

 

Ready, Set, Grow: Give pops of color and life to your space with your favorite bright plants or flowers grown in trendy planters. In your container garden, play around with different planter designs and flower arrangements.

 

Fire pit.

Get Campy: Small, compact, and easy to use, a fire pit adds a nostalgic spark to your outdoor area. Rearrange your furniture around a fire pit for cozy nights under the stars (and s’mores with your kids, of course).

 

Let There Be Light: There are few things as comforting as the sight of string lights against a clear night sky. There are so many fun and stylish ways to illuminate your outdoor area into something magical! 

 

Accent Piece: A garden accent table adds a touch of chicness without overwhelming the other accessories. Whatever color or design floats your boat, your drinks are sure to look cool resting on it.

 

Outdoor kitchen.

Dinner Al Fresco: With an option to add a beautiful outdoor kitchen, you can finally enjoy your meals under the stars! Spacious enough for everyone, you and your family will love cooking and eating together outside.

 

Summer Love Letter: As guests come and go for gatherings outside, encourage them to write a message! Fun for your kids and their friends, a blackboard and chalk give your space a sweet, personal touch.

 

Relaxation Retreat: Want your own private space to meditate or practice yoga? Incorporate calming plants, wireless speakers, candles, a stylish rug, etc., and you finally have the luxurious retreat you deserve.

Sometimes, fresh air and sunshine are exactly what you need. So don’t wait to experience paradise in your own private outdoor oasis! For more information about our beautiful new homes throughout North and South Carolina, please contact us at 919-205-3404. We can’t wait to get started!

New vs. Used: The Advantages of The Home of Your Life

New vs. Used: The Advantages of The Home of Your Life

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe your home should reflect you inside and out. And while a used home has all the “pieces,” it doesn’t have the heart. With a squeaky clean new home as your canvas, you finally get to put your wants and needs first and make your home entirely your own.

 

From all-new systems and cleaner air quality to superior features and open-concept design, a beautiful new home in North Carolina makes life easier and more enjoyable every day. Take a look at the advantages of The Home of Your Life vs. any used home you’ve seen before:

 

Kitchen.

Used home…

Waste time and energy cooking meals with old, unreliable appliances

New home…

A spacious chef’s station and eatery with all-new appliances that work beautifully

 

Used home…

Miss the fun of hosting friends and family because of the cramped barrier of walls

New home…

A cleaner and greener deluxe family suite where each open room flows into the other

 

Outdoor space.

Used home…

Not enough room outside to fully enjoy each season

A new home…

Your own peaceful and private natural oasis that brings the beauty of nature to the comfort of home

 

Bathroom.

Used home…

No way to feel pampered and relaxed, especially at the end of a long day

New home…

A spa-like sanctuary with a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and walk-in closet

 

Used home…

Not up to speed with what you need today and down the line

New home…

Brand new and expertly built to provide everyday paradise with comfort, luxury, and flexibility

As you compare new construction vs. resale, be sure to consider just how much a high-performance, certified-green home will enhance your daily routine. Aside from saving you money in the long run, The Home of Your Life in North Carolina lets you live the happier, healthier lifestyle you want and deserve. This summer, we’re saying “out with the old, in with the new”… there’s no better way to live your life.
