More and more families are turning their outdoor areas into an oasis of relaxation complete with sound systems, televisions and more. Matt Reeve with Millennium Sounds helps homeowners select items. Here are his tips on the latest audio visual trends for your “outdoor oasis.”
Take relaxation to the lazy level.
Some of us are old enough to remember having to get up to change the television channel with the turn of a dial. No more! Today homeowners can even control their outdoor sound system with a few flicks of the finger. The Control4 outdoor sound system is controlled on an iPad or access music from an iPod dock inside the house.
Keep it natural.
Outdoor speaker rocks are still cool for around the pool, patio and more. They look natural and have great sound.
Bring inside out.
Outdoor televisions built into cabinets are all the rage. Keep in mind, the cabinet that houses the flat screen must be a durable material. While wood looks nice, it can splinter and rot in wet Indiana weather. Another option is polymer of marine quality or steel. Some cabinets offer fans to filter out particles. Others are even waterproof.

Daily 5 Remodel recently featured the SGR Grow the Bungalow project. This is the home in Broad Ripple that we renovated last spring to include a new kitchen, family room area, screened porch and welcoming front entry with landscaping. If you missed it take a peek. Thanks to everyone who voted for us to win the best project, too!
The Indianapolis Star featured client Michelle Bundrant last month. She talked about her partnership with SGR to turn the family’s dining room into a poolside Cabana. While we were undertaking that work, we were able to help the Bundrants make changes to their kitchen to create better work and traffic flow. Check it out here.
The Indianapolis Star also featured Steve and his home office. Take a peek. See where we work everyday!
