Summer is the time of barbecues, star gazing and socializing outside with your friends. Building a patio allows home owners to transcend the walls of their home and extend the comforts into an outdoor environment. Many outdoor living areas become the birthplace of memories that last a lifetime. Who doesn’t love a good backyard party?
All of us can use more fresh air, sunlight, and getting away from the confines of your home or work. For majority of us, we just feel good being outside.
Building a patio means added home value.
Increasing the look and accessibility of your backyard is automatically going to add value to your home. Spending the money now, could potentially benefit the owner if selling the home ever becomes an option.
Introduce the outdoors as an extension of your home.
One of the great aspects of a patio is the ability to be on the same level as the rest of your house and yard. By creating an accessible transition from your outdoor living room to the grassy backyard, you are increasing that connection between nature and your home.
Work with your environment, not against it.
Creating an outdoor living area does not mean taking away from your yard. A well-planned site will minimize disruption to the natural terrain. Designing an outdoor living room should emphasize nature, while giving you a better place to relax. A well designed backyard is more likely to increase your property value, than one that doesn’t flow with your house.
The added benefits for your health and social life.
Are you tired of being inside all day? Relaxing in a comfortable outdoor environment is often the best way to end a long day. Want to be the talk of the summer? Creating a comfortable and relaxed outdoor environment can increase your urge to invite your friends over!
In a study by University of Michigan, researchers concluded that being in nature can help give your brain break from the overstimulating aspects of one’s life. While you may not be able to go hiking or backpacking every weekend, you can certainly create your own natural environment at home.
Be the talk of your friends.
Wanting to have a great yard to host your friends is a justified reason to invest in a outdoor living room. Spending quality time with your social circle is something that can make a bad day seem not so bad.
