Our Parade of Homes Grand Award winner, the Venetian, is a sprawling home that features a gorgeous lanai perfect for family fun and entertaining—something we value in every home we design! In today’s blog, we will be going over the benefits of this unique outdoor feature, and how it can transform your home for the better.
All weather entertaining
For those homeowners who love to entertain outdoors no matter the season, a lanai offers the chance to enjoy instant dinners, parties and get togethers—without worrying about rain or extreme heat. The overhanging structure of a lanai provides protection from surprise showers, as well as welcome shade for hot, sunny afternoons. (You can even add outdoor ceiling fans for additional cooling, although you likely won’t need to do so at all.)
The spring and summer months here in Florida often see more than their fair share of surprises in the weather—but with a lanai, you’re protected from most of them!
A chance to get away
Every home needs that special nook where you can just get away and unwind—whether you need to clear your mind or simply want to relax with a good book. A lanai provides one of the best ways to do that. This covered outdoor feature lets you come outside and enjoy the view from a comfortable location you’ll want to keep coming back to.
Room for improvement
While the mere presence of a lanai offers homeowners an instant path to fun and good times together, it also allows you to add on even more features for an entertainment friendly home. You can house your outdoor kitchen under your lanai, for example, or make it an outdoor fun zone for young kids.
Hawaii lifestyle made local
A lanai is named for its Hawaiian origins—and we know that Hawaii enjoys an outdoor friendly culture, with kitchens and entertaining spaces finding their homes under the sun, not an interior roof. The lanai attached to your Florida home can help you emulate that culture, giving you the chance to make the most out of your outdoor space in a way that other outdoor structures simply can’t compete with.
A lanai is a feature worth adding to any Flagler County custom home. Get in touch with us to get started on your custom build, and we’ll be sure to work with you to create the outdoor retreat of your dreams.
