Outdoor Living Spaces will expand and integrate
One of the basic roles of any dwelling is to protect us from the environment.
So why are people exploring their balconies, gardens and yards more than ever?
3 Factors could explain the epic rise in the desire for better outdoor living spaces.
- Better materials
Creative flooring offers the opportunity to create the same natural looking surfaces, both indoor and outdoors.
For years, designers have tried to integrate indoors and outside spaces, but only recently have the materials been affordable to us all.
The result is a harmony that makes the yard a desirable, low maintenance place to relax in style. A sheltered haven perhaps, or a safe play zone for kids to play.
- Reduced yard space for new homes
Lot sizes are generally reducing in size, and builders are maximizing the living spaces to suit the family needs.
Once builders would simply grass the exterior and leave the yard design to you.
Now that yards are smaller, their limits actually become an ‘enabling constraint’! In other words, a challenge that works out for the better!
It’s hard to sell a home with a useless tiny grass yard.
But a super cool landscaped outside living area can easily be created, adding a wow factor without a jaw dropping expense.
Fire pits, low energy lighting and stunning landscaping make that problem yard, the most desirable place in the home!
- Owners spending more time at home
With almost half of all US workers estimated to be working from home in 2017, there’s more demand than ever for homes to offer high quality leisure space.
Telecommuting (as it is known) is on the rise, and workers are advised to designate areas of the home as ‘off limits’ during their work day.
Without that discipline, the whole home would feel like an office, making those outdoor living spaces a vital element of the sense of freedom.
Nothing beats the sounds smells and visuals of the great outdoors after a day behind the computer.
Planning consent is required for the most adventurous outdoor room designs, but the patience, effort and occasional compromise, can pay off.
Nothing can beat the sensation of enjoying the fresh natural light and air, with the benefit from carefully designed protection from the elements.
