Share News:

With the favorable fall weather cooling things off in Dallas, Bella Custom Homes is busier than ever. In fact, they say owners are more interested in creating outdoor spaces that are livable now and throughout the seasons. Here’s what’s trending.

Next-Level Outdoor Entertaining You Have To See To Believe 

“We are so fortunate to live in a city with such great weather for most of the year. And our clients love that extension of their living space into the outdoors,” says Bella Custom Homes Vice President and Lead Interior Designer, Stacy Brotemarkle. “We are seeing lots of large verandas with fireplaces, cabanas, huge sliding doors, outdoor kitchens, automated screens, outdoor heating and air conditioning, and firepits, just to name a few.”

Extend Your Living Space Outdoors In Style

With more of us spending time at home, extending our living spaces outside is becoming more than a trend. It’s a priority! However, doing it right takes careful consideration. Especially if you want to maximize space while staying on budget. Sound like a headache? Think again! 

Bella Custom Homes are highly regarded for their forward-thinking design and making dreams come true with ease. In fact, they provide homeowners top-notch services and a design approach that is second to none. And as one of the most in-demand builders in Dallas they take indoor-outdoor living to an entirely new level.  

“We are here to design a home that fits the wants and wishes of our clients,” says Brotemarkle. “We start with the floor plans for their new home and guide them through the design process. We help them incorporate these outdoor amenities in their new home design. We also work with a landscape designer to custom design their backyard oasis. We create that second or even third living space in the backyard.

“Large verandas are a great place for outdoor entertaining. It gives you a chance for several more seating areas, and with the inclusion of a large sliding or folding door, so you can really create a vast space for your guests to enjoy.”

Most importantly, Bella Custom Homes wants their clients to feel like they are at a five-star resort when they walk into their backyards. “That starts with a pool and lush landscape, and grows from there,” Brotemarkle adds. “It’s whatever the clients desire.”

But there are several entertainment trends that are hot this year, specifically large sliding or folding door units. 

“It really opens up the indoor space and connects it to the outdoor spaces,” Brotemarkle says. “We are also seeing more automated screens to keep the bugs out, as well as outdoor heating. The infrared heaters are amazing and can keep you outdoors after the cooler temps arrive.”

With Extensive Lot Expertise, They Can Help You Find The Perfect Spot To Upgrade

It’s not simply about making a space comfortable. It’s about finding it too.

Tony Visconti, President and Owner of Bella Custom Homes tells us, “Topography or sloped lots give you a chance to create different levels and destinations or features in your backyard. We think some people tend to shy away from the topography lots, but with an experienced builder like us, with over 40 years of experience on unique lots, it really gives you a chance for something extra special.”

“We are working on a project right now that has a 30′ slope from the street to the water in the back.  We have created three different levels in their back yard. They have a formal garden area and a large Veranda with a fireplace and outdoor cooking area, a pool and spa level with a Cabana, a firepit overlooking the water, and then a lower grass level for the grandkids to enjoy. You can also try your hand at a little golfing while you are back there. You can chip from one level to the next, or practice your putting. These clients knew they had something unique and breathtaking and really took advantage of the topography.”

No matter your lot size or variation, Bella Custom Homes has a solution – or several – to help you create the outdoor space of your dreams.

“We can really create that oasis with just about any lot. Our team of talented designers and craftsman can bring any vision to life,” he says. “It’s all about how you entertain, and how you and your family live in the spaces.”
