Outdoor Living is becoming more popular as many people are customizing their homes and adding to their outdoor space in the process. Even for people who experience four distinct seasons, you can still create a space outdoors that’s highly functional and unique.
Planning a backyard for outdoor living is great because you can truly create it entirely to both you and your family’s lifestyle and tastes. If you like soaking in both the water and the summer sun then a swimming pool and patio are for you. If you enjoy entertaining on a summer evening then a barbeque, outdoor kitchen, and bar with seating may be things to consider. Make your outdoor space practical, stylish, and useable up to nine months a year instead of the standard four.
Benefits of Outdoor Living Spaces
Why should you consider outdoor living for your home? You can never underestimate the amount of enjoyment that you get from your own outdoor living space that you’ve designed to be right for you. Customization really ensures relaxation in a beautiful space of your own. Something else to consider is increase in the amount of space that investing in outdoor living may provide you. Things like a swimming pool, outdoor seating, a kitchen, and more really expands your space where everyday life happens as well as extra space for parties and company. It’s a great choice to expand your home without any actual home construction going on. Investing in your backyard space can also add more value to your home sometimes as high as 25% more. The space can look great and be very aesthetically pleasing adding to your home’s character and the statement it makes. There’s actually been studies that show spending more time outdoors has many health benefits. Things like stress reduction, creativity expansion, improved immune system, and a better mood all contribute to improved well-being when spending extended periods of time outside. Sunlight and its important Vitamin D content has also been shown to help with depression, fight disease, and many other things.
Upgrade Your Outdoor Living Space
When you think about what your upgraded outdoor living space may look like, it’s important to think about how the space is currently being used and how it will be used once improvements are made. Those upgrades may include a pool, an outdoor kitchen, patio, fire pit, hot tub, more landscaping, maybe even all of it! There are some great options when it comes to outdoor living upgrades.
Including a space for a pool and a hot tub are great first steps in building your own backyard summer oasis. E-Z Test Pool Supplies can help you through this process offering many different sizes and shapes of pools and also a spa or hot tub as well.
Are you looking to create a space to sit outside and entertain family and friends? An outdoor patio can be a wonderful option for that. You can create this with concrete pavers of different shapes, colors, and designs. You can also create an exposed aggregate or stamped concrete patio. Stamped concrete is a durable and affordable textured concrete that can make your patio stand out. Exposed aggregate is concrete with natural stones that have been seeded into the concrete; this is a very durable patio possibility. If you are installing a pool, then selecting the best patio or paver design that compliments the color and shape may also be important. At E-Z Test Pool Supplies, we have many cement and hardscape companies that we partner with and would gladly recommend.
Do you have uneven land in your backyard but would still like to transform it? A retaining wall could be the answer as they go really far in keeping your property level and tiered while remaining sturdy and decorative. Putting in a fire pit is a great addition for both summer and fall atmosphere and fun. It can easily be built with pavers or stone in many different styles and last for decades. Fire pits are a great place to spend evenings with the kids, family, or friends. An outdoor kitchen is a place outside your house where you can cook and prepare food with features like countertops, a sink, a cooktop, or even an outdoor oven.
