Spacious Atrium Courtyard with Built-In Seating and Fire Pit
Indoor/outdoor living can be enjoyed year round in the coastal community of Corona del Mar, California. This spacious atrium is the perfect gathering place for family and friends. Planters are the backdrop for built-in seating.
A built-in bench takes advantage of a quiet corner in this bricked-in courtyard. A flagstone walkway and carefully planned rock gardens make the most of the native plantings and provide a low-maintenance lawn.
Built-in seating around the dining table makes the most of the curved walls in this small dining room. Natural fiber shades add privacy, while the suzani print pillows bring color and vibrancy to the inviting room.
Yellow and gold bring pep to this modern breakfast nook, where soft gray walls are accented by warm wood accents. A custom, built-in banquette connects this cozy dining area to the open concept kitchen.
Contemporary Built-In Seating with Fire Pit, Pergola.
Built-in seating surrounds three sides of a modern fire pit, creating a cozy spot for relaxing and talking with friends. A pergola overhead defines the seating area and adds to its friendly, welcoming feel.
Modern Backyard Swimming Pool With Built-In Seating
This home's glass walls look out onto a stylish, modern backyard. A wood deck supports lounge chairs, which are perfect for relaxing by the swimming pool. Underwater lighting and built-in seating add visual appeal to the pool's design.
Mediterranean Terrace With Wood Roof, Built-In Seating
A wing of this Mediterranean terrace juts out into the lush Sardinian landscape to offer sweeping views of the crisp blue sea. The terra cotta color of the tile extends onto the cushions of a built-in bench, as well as the warm wood roof of the covered veranda. This three-building villa rests at the heart of the village of Porto Rafael, just steps from the picturesque Piazzetta.
Modern Patio with Outdoor Kitchen, Built-In Seating
This fully equipped outdoor kitchen has the same white and whitewashed gray color palette as the rest of the modern home and patio, giving the space a clean, streamlined look. A built-in bench offers a place to perch while food is being prepared.
In this makeover by the Property Brothers, a built-in bench next to the wine cooler lets guests enjoy a glass of wine and mingle in the kitchen while meals are being prepared. With storage cabinets underneath, no space is wasted.
