Improve Your Outdoor Living Spaces!
Now that spring is here, it’s time to think about improving your outdoor living spaces.
The appeal of outdoor living spaces like decks and patios has been growing for several years. A study in 2014 by the home design and remodeling website Houzz said that a large number of homeowners were updating their yards for outdoor entertaining. Likewise, nearly 60 percent of architectural companies that were surveyed by the American Institute of Architects in 2016 said that outdoor living spaces were all the rage in the houses they built. Outdoor living spaces can also be a sound investment for homeowners that are looking to increase the resale value of their homes. According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2017 “Cost vs. Value” report, outside living areas generated a return of between 55 and 71 percent of their initial cost at resale.
