Outdoor Design Lake Forest, IL

The previous deck was aging wood with a wood railing that blocked the view. By selecting maintenance free Trex decking with contrasting colors and lighting details and a clear glass railing, the deck feels more spacious and the pool is now an integral part of the entertaining experience

We designed an arbor over the seating area to provide shade for this cozy get-away. The incorporated an outdoor rated TV that is ideal for entertaining.

The pool area is adorned with a signature Stingray umbrella by Tuuci and the seating areas utilize the contemporary styling by Tommy Bahama outdoor. The stunning statement of style and class add to the spa-like ambiance.

Varying heights for the walls were carefully chosen to created separate seating and eating areas that provide privacy where needed and views where desired.

We designed a custom built-in self-cleaning grille area complete with refrigerator and granite tops and nestled it into an unused section of the deck, adding a gas line, increasing the functionality of the entire outdoors space.

The client uses the outdoor area throughout the year especially for grilling!

The new glass railing is at standard height to open the space and views connecting the deck to the pool area .

Seating for the dining area was carefully chosen in a contemporary timeless style that requires little maintenance. The Tuuci umbrella features accent fabric on the inside to add interest and complement the melon colored exterior.
