Open Air Design – Lucas Contracting
f you love a clean, warm, stylish environment there is no reason why you can’t embrace that throughout various aspects of your home. Ottawa has some beautiful weather year-round, so when you utilize open air designs in the construction of your home, you add something unique that will add a lot of character and quality to your home.
It is important that you work with a contractor that is familiar with open air, contemporary designs. There are permit issues as well as other things that need to be considered. Most likely, a lot of demolition is going to be required to provide you with the look you want. If the contractor you hire is not a professional, you may end up with stability issues in some parts of your home.
Essentially, open air is just as it sounds. It allows a part of your home to be open to fresh air. You can choose to screen in the area, add a glass enclosure or just allow the air to flow in naturally. The designs are completely up to you – however a designer will work with you to achieve the look that you are after.
Consider an open air bedroom or living room. The wind blowing into the room will cut down significantly on your electric bill. You can hear the birds chirping in the morning. Every day will feel as though you are on vacation.

If you like the idea of creating a spa-like experience in your bathroom, it may be advantageous to go with an open air design. You can still hold onto some of your privacy but have one wall exposed to the great outdoors. You may even decide to place your bathtub outdoors so that you feel like you are bathing in the garden.
Another option is to create a kitchen with an open air design. If you do a lot of entertaining, having an open air design can provide a number of benefits. You will have more room and a wonderful view. It will also make it easier to bring things in and out of the kitchen to your entertaining area – especially if it is located outdoors.
