Ah, summer: while certainly the ideal time for fun in the sun, it’s also a great time to kick back and relax outside right at home. And for many homeowners, that’s exactly what they’re doing. In fact, outdoor living spaces have become almost as important as indoor living, with more money being spent on outdoor improvements than ever before.
Gone are the days of that front porch or backyard patio being an afterthought. Today, more and more homeowners are embracing all the perks outdoor living spaces have to offer. And rightfully so. From barbequing with family and friends to unwinding after a long day of work and everything in between, a designated lounge area outside the home is the most authentic place you can go.
Outdoor living spaces are also one of the most affordable ways to expand your square footage, costing much less than adding on to the current structure of your home. Furthermore, an outdoor living area can help maintain and even improve your home’s value. Just adding a deck alone can give you up to an 83% ROI.
The Importance of Outdoor Living Spaces
Beautifully designed outdoor living spaces can set your home apart from the rest. And, because they are so popular, the design options are endless. Whatever you prefer–outdoor kitchens, covered front porches, raised wood decks, concrete patios, 3-season rooms, pavilions or pergolas, fire or water features, or something different altogether–it’s easy to create a space that’s uniquely tailored to you, as well as the style of your home.
