06 Aug How to Improve Your Outdoor Living Spaces
Transform your backyard into an outdoor living space your entire family will enjoy year round.
Houses that have outdoor living spaces not only look great, but also fetch far higher prices in the market compared to other houses in the neighborhood that lack it. So, whether you are looking to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home, or increase the value of your home, consider upgrading your outdoor space. When you decide to redo your outdoor space, keep in mind that some upgrades pay off better than others. St. Louis home remodeling experts reveal some upgrades that give you the most value for your investment.
The American Society of Landscape Architects published its current year’s Residential Landscape Architecture Trends Survey, which provides hints on outdoor space upgrades that offer the most value. According to the survey, the upgrade that adds the most value to outdoor spaces is lighting. LED and solar lights offer a cost effective way of upgrading an outdoor area.
Other Great Additions For Your Outdoor Spaces
Decks, patio rooms, and terraces are another great addition to any home. They add functionality and aesthetic appeal to the home. Another great way to enhance the marketability of a property is to add some low maintenance landscaping. A professional home remodeling company can help do some low maintenance landscaping well within your budget.
Fireplaces and fire pits can also enhance the value of your home. Building a fireplace is not a very costly or time-consuming project, so the return on investment is quite high. Another upgrade that home remodeling experts recommend is the addition of built-in seating. By adding built-in seating to your patio room or deck, you can enhance the functionality of the outdoor space.
There are some other upgrades as well that you can consider, but they are more expensive, so you should consider them only if you can afford it. These upgrades include geothermal heated pools, outdoor home theater systems, turf lawns, showers, outdoor cooling systems, and gazebos. These upgrades may add substantial value to the property.
