Outdoor living spaces can provide homeowners with more livable space and ample entertainment options to enjoy as the weather turns warm.

Picture this: It’s a beautiful summer day in Hampton Roads, and you start your morning by enjoying your coffee on your screened deck as a warm breeze blows through. Later in the day, you fire up the grill and begin preparing dinner in your outdoor kitchen while your family and friends mingle on your expansive patio. The kids soak up the sun as they play in your magnificently landscaped yard. As the day turns to night, everyone gathers around the fire pit for S’mores and stories. It’s a summer day well spent, without leaving the comfort of your own home.

If this sounds like one of your daydreams, it might be time to remodel your outdoor living space. With endless ways to create your perfect outdoor space, and as we continue to spend more time at home, now is the ideal time to make an upgrade. Here are the top five reasons why you should consider remodeling your outdoor living space.

  1. Creates more livable space
    By creating an outdoor living room or kitchen and adding decorative touches, you can extend your interior living space to the outdoors. By covering these spaces, you will be able to use them, rain or shine.
  2. Expands your entertainment options
    Patios, decks, kitchens, pools, bars, lawn space, gardens, fire pits—the entertainment options you can create by remodeling your outdoor living space are seemingly endless.
  3. Increases your home’s value
    Now more than ever, potential homebuyers are looking for homes with more outdoor space, especially homes that already have well-designed outdoor living spaces. By remodeling, you can add both curb appeal and resale appeal to your home, and therefore, increase its value.
  4. Less invasive than an interior home remodel
    Depending on the scope of your project, an outdoor remodel can have minimal impact on your day-to-day life since the majority of the work will take place outside of your home and in a space you most likely do not need to utilize immediately.
  5. May help you save money
    You’ll have more reason to stay home when you have an outdoor living space you love and can enjoy to the fullest. With fewer trips to expensive restaurants and bars and more entertainment options right in your own backyard, you may end up saving money throughout the year.
