Outdoor Renovations

A new outdoor living space can add functional square footage to your existing home by providing a new space to relax and entertain. Consider how you intend to use the space- outdoor kitchens, bars, fire places, fire pits are all great ways to utilize outdoor living areas. Be sure to extend the decorating style from your home! A small project can go a long way to maximize your space, curb appeal, and time spent outdoors.

Added features make your outdoor living area an investment you can enjoy any time of day or year. Lighting adds an inviting visual dimension in the evening even from inside your home. Fire features can create the kind of warmth to keep you outdoors, enjoying your outdoor space in cooler temperatures.

The American Society of Landscape Architects recommends the homeowners budget at least 5-10% of your home’s worth for proper landscaping and hardscape projects. With the right contractors and materials, this investment will increase the value of your home. A simple walkway and front porch renovation will improve your curb appeal and greet your guests with style- be sure to select colors and textures that will be complementary in terms of color and texture.

There are so many inspiring resources online, from DIY design software to google searches and blogs just like this.
