One of the best perks of building your own home is being able to select the most beautiful parts of your property and make them stunning focal points. That wow factor for custom homes in Abbotsford is the view, whether it’s snow-capped mountains, colourful orchards and fields, the diverse cityscape or the scintillating lakes and rivers.
To highlight the natural beauty of the environment, take a walk around your property before you build. Decide which views you want as focal points and what types of room they’ll be best viewed from. Then you can choose what features will work best to show them off.
If your home is lacking in beautiful views, you can customize one in your own yard. Create a sumptuous oasis with a private pool or relaxing spa. An outdoor kitchen provides a place to entertain and dine outdoors during warm summer days and nights. A small pond or babbling stream surrounded by lush greenery makes a scenic, quiet place to sit and rejuvenate.
Large windows–let in lots of light, warmth, and allow for fresh ventilation. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer unrestricted scenic views and make a room feel large and spacious.
Glass doors and walls–enjoy the landscape in a panoramic view with custom glass doors and windows.
Deck or balcony– step outside to fully enjoy the amazing scenery. Frameless glass railing works beautifully in this setting as it won’t break your line-of-sight while offering security and wind and noise buffering.
Yard accessories–from patio kitchens to spas, to rock and water features, ideas that can be added to your yard to improve the view are almost endless. Creating with natural materials like wood, rock and stone, or working with glass, metal, tile or decorative concrete, a gorgeous view can be customized within your own personal aesthetic.
Custom home construction in Abbotsford is about options, whether it’s working to enhance the beauty nature has provided, or creating stunning, natural beauty in the environment you already have.
