Our Favorite Trends in Outdoor Living

One of the best parts of every Homes By Dickerson home is its unbelievable outdoor living spaces. We build in such picturesque neighborhoods in Raleigh, Pinehurst and Charleston. Our decks and porches give our homeowners the opportunity to enjoy the scenery… among other things! These unique features add more entertaining space, along with everyday living space. 


Our experienced designers have rounded up their favorite ways to enjoy the summer days ahead, with the latest trends in outdoor living features and design options.


Just add fire

Why settle for a firepit when you can have built-in heat? Outdoor fireplaces are a great way to extend your outdoor experience in the chilly spring/fall weather. We love the cozy ambience they add to our already incredible porches. 

Try porch gardening 

Imagine a carefree kitchen garden or an eye-catching floral tapestry on your deck. Grow veggies & herbs with vertical gardening techniques that are easy to care for and harvest. Create colorful container gardens with unique pots and interesting combinations of annuals, perennials and shrubs. 

Go for the comfy couch

Say goodbye to that old picnic table. It’s time to embrace outdoor furniture that is comfortable and stylish, with woven textures, bold colors or curvy lines. Soft couches or settees, plush outdoor rugs, pillows and blankets. Your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!

Hi-tech meets the great outdoors   

Homeowners are bringing the indoors outside. By integrating cutting-edge tech like outdoor kitchens and open air sound systems into their porches, they’re creating unique and useful living spaces. Add a screen and projector for a fun way to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.

Work alfresco 

Post-covid, some people are still working remotely and want to change up the space where they spend their days. Who wouldn’t want an office with a view of the woods? All you need is a comfy chair, a table, and your laptop to make your screened porch into the office of your dreams! 

However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Homes By Dickerson home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. For more information, please connect with us or call us at (919) 205-3404.
