Summer has just about arrived — and here in the Sunshine State, that means the high temps and bright skies are here to stay! Fortunately, you don’t need to travel to some far-off destination to cool down on the steamiest Florida days. With the help of one of the Johnson Group’s beautiful, handcrafted homes in New Smyrna Beach, you can create your own personalized oasis right where you are. Just read on to see some of our top ideas.
Enjoy Al Fresco Meals In Your Outdoor Kitchen
One of the most popular features in new, custom-crafted Florida homes is a designated outdoor entertaining space — often, one that’s equipped with a kitchen for truly effortless dinner parties and just-because gatherings. Grill up a delicious dinner before settling in for family movie night, complete with an outdoor TV and cozy fireplace. Just check out our showcase gallery for some inspiration!
Explore Resort-Style Amenities
In addition to a stunning outdoor kitchen, you can equip your breezy summer retreat with features like a cooling fan, comfy sectional sofa, towel warmer, dimmer lights, and much more. Basically, everything you love about your favorite resort is easy to incorporate into your dream home — making it a must-do destination for summertime fun.
Create A Splashing Oasis
It wouldn’t be resort-style living without a pool, of course! At Johnson Group Homes, pools are more than an “add-on” to your home — they are almost like another room entirely, a beautiful space that’s as thoughtfully considered as the rest of your property. Your pool might overlook a natural body of water, for example, or feature lounge chairs submerged in shallow water for totally effortless, resort-style relaxation.
Make Cleanup Effortless
With so much to do, see, and explore, the last thing you want to do this summer is spend time cleaning your outdoor space! Fortunately, with the help of a custom-designed home, you can enjoy the benefits of covered patio spaces and screen rooms that provide the pleasure of an outdoor space without all the leaves, seeds, and debris that go along with it.
If yours is an active family that plans to do lots of surfing and beachcombing during the summer (and, most likely, all year long), a porch or designated side room can double as the Floridian version of a “mudroom,” where you can leave sandy shoes and gear before heading into the rest of the house.
Add Beachy Touches Throughout
When you have a stunning outdoor space, you can carry elements of your Sunshine State oasis throughout the rest of your home, as well. For example, we love beachy accents that speak to the local New Smyrna Beach area — think surfboard décor, shiplap, nautical patterns, and blue accents that lend a coastal flair to your space.
Your gorgeous Sunshine State oasis is right around the corner. Call Johnson Group Homes today to get started on the process of finding (or designing) your dream home, one that will be enjoyed for many summers — and falls, winters, and springs, too — to come.
