During the COVID-19 shutdown of 2020, many changes started to brew as we all sheltered in place to limit the spread of the virus. While urban living had become quite popular and desirable in recent years, millions of Americans have been fleeing larger cities and purchasing real estate in more secluded rural, areas. One of the reasons for this newfound emphasis on privacy is because many people have started to realize the perks of having an outdoor living space to enjoy!
What is an Outdoor Living Space?
The perfect outdoor living space really depends on your specific preferences and the people you expect to enjoy the space with. For some individuals, the perfect outdoor living space may include a screened in patio as a means to enjoy their outdoor area from a serene, enclosed space. Others may want to create a fully-fledged outdoor kitchen as we move into the summer. Perhaps your outdoor living space requires a space for the kids to play with their friends. Maybe you want to create a space to unwind after a long day with a bonfire.
Ultimately, the perfect outdoor living space should compel you and your loved ones to enjoy the outdoor space that you’ve worked so hard to envision!
Planning Your Outdoor Living Space
The sky is the limit when it comes to creating the perfect outdoor living space. Our best advice is to try to come up with a vision that meets your short-term goals (how you will use the area) along with your long-term goals (adding overall value to the property). The work that you are doing to improve the livability of your space can also increase its value when the time comes to sell down the line! This will apply to simple additions like carefully placed privacy plants and significant additions like a screened in deck.
