Whether it’s spring, summer, or fall (and sometimes even winter), we all love spending time outdoors. From weekend barbecues to outdoor dinner parties, having an outdoor living space is a wonderful investment that goes beyond the financial value it brings.
So, let’s take a look at how outdoor living spaces can bring value to your custom home.
No matter what type of custom home you have, it’s always great having a space outside that you can use for entertaining or even just as a space for you and your family to spend time together.
Take it one step further and add a roofing structure or cover and you’ll be able to make use of the space come rain or shine! This is the perfect way to extend your living space and create an outdoor area where you can relax and enjoy the fresh air in comfort and style.
It’s also very useful to have this extra space available. Whether your family is expanding or you’ve made more friends, having extra space makes it easier to accommodate more people.
Plus, having an outdoor living area is especially great if you have young kids. You’ll be able to keep an eye on your children while they play outside and you’ll have a space to relax in. Win-win!
Any additions or enhancements you do on your custom home add value. This is particularly true if your outdoor living space build includes features such as roofing, flooring, and outdoor cooking facilities.
For example, if you were to build an outdoor kitchen, with appliances, a grill, and add in outdoor storage facilities and cabinetry, you would definitely see a return on your investment if you were to sell in the future.
Ultimately, you want to enhance the appeal of your home, from the aesthetic appeal to the actual value. So, before you start building your custom home, make sure the design of the outdoor space is going to do just that for you – upgrade the value of the home while keeping in line with your style.
Your custom home is truly a reflection of your personal style, taste, and needs. If you love rustic, outdoorsy styles, then why not turn your outdoor living space into a romantic, rustic hideaway? Or if you love ultra-contemporary styles, have fun playing with lines, symmetry, and bold accent colors to create the perfect modern zen garden.
How you want your home to look really is entirely up to you. Whether it’s the interior or your backyard, you can definitely have some fun with it.
Enhance the features of your property
It’s all about the aesthetics of your property. If you’ve designed a modern bungalow, why not add a large veranda to your backyard extending out from the interior of your home? It will tie into the style of the home, and elevate the aesthetic of the existing property.
You want to use your property to your advantage. For example, if you have natural sloping land, consider a balcony terrace. This enables you to enjoy a sweeping look of your property and the view from your beautiful outdoor area.
If you have a stunning view from your property, make the most of it with an outdoor living area that faces it. This way, you can spend your days off relaxing and enjoying a view right from your home.
It’s all about enhancing the existing features of the property, creating more living space, and ultimately, enhancing your home life.
Entertaining at home is all about how much space you have. If you want to have a dinner party and can only seat 6 guests, it limits you as to how big of an event you can host.
However, outdoor living spaces help you to maximize the amount of space you can work with. For example, if you create a large outdoor living space, you could fit a large outdoor dining table that seats 10 guests.
Additionally, the ambiance you can create with outdoor living, with small touches, like lighting or outdoor fireplaces, enhances the experience for your guests. After all, there’s just nothing quite like a summer weekend barbeque with friends and family, right?
All in all, having an outdoor living space is an investment. And it’s a good one at that!
You’ll be able to enhance the value of your custom home while creating beautiful outdoor living spaces to share with family and friends. The design options are endless and the benefits truly make it a worthwhile addition to your custom home.
