Home will always be where the heart is, that’s for sure. And everyone has certainly had the opportunity to spend more time at home for the past year and a half. Families have adapted to lifestyle changes and created makeshift spaces to work and learn from home and with each passing month it becomes more evident which spaces can go the distance in a multifunctional capacity and which cannot. As homeowners take a harder look at what’s working, what’s not and what’s missing within their home, we are seeing a trend toward remodeling spaces that are actually outside of the kitchen. Let’s take a look at some of these spaces.
Yes! It is finally time to get outside again and enjoy backyard barbecues, do a little gardening, read a good book in the hammock, or just kick back and watch the kids play in the yard. Without a doubt, expanding some of your living areas outside will add to your overall enjoyment of your home. With the steady uptick in homeowners remodeling their homes since the start of the pandemic, outdoor spaces have become top requests just behind home offices and kitchens. Over the years we've created a lot of helpful resources for those who are getting ready to update their outdoor spaces. We recommend reviewing the 5 listed below if you are considering one in your near future.
There’s just something about the sights and sounds of the outdoors that is very relaxing. Connecting with nature is good for the soul whether you are enjoying it through a picture window, sitting outside in the fresh air, or going on a hike with the family. That’s why many homeowners have decided to invest in creating outdoor spaces that provide the perfect spot to unwind and entertain. We encourage our clients to imagine outdoor spaces as natural extensions of their home and love to offer them options on how to remodel based on their individual family’s needs and functional preferences. For some it may be a deck, while another family may be better suited with a screened or enclosed porch, or sunroom.
We are officially in the summer season and that means it’s time for backyard barbecues, friends and family get-togethers, and enjoying the natural settings surrounding our homes. As much as we love this time of year, sometimes the heat and bugs can put a damper on being outside. How fantastic would it be if you could do it without getting overheated, the risk of sunburn, or a bunch of bug bites? It would be fabulous, right? Take a look at these two outdoor spaces that offer the comforts and security of the being indoors.
A great place to extend your living space is in your own backyard with an outdoor remodeling project. In recent years, homeowners have been using their backyard as a blank canvas to create great spaces to spend time with family and entertain guests. The latest trend in outdoor remodeling is designing outdoor versions of your favorite indoor spaces.
