Home renovations are ramping back up, and as they do, it’s important that you make sure you’re getting the most out of yours. Whether you’re considering updating your home so you can sell it, or you’re eager to update to make living there more comfortable for yourself: it’s vital to get to know what updates are worth the most.
These are exterior renovation ideas that boost your home’s value the most and what they can do for your property.
Create an Indoor and Outdoor Space
The main goal for many homeowners is to blur the lines between what’s inside and what’s outside. This goal is to make it so that entertainment and lounging are natural, and you can easily find yourself walking from your living room outside to enjoy the setting sun.
Sunrooms and screen rooms can make it so your yard feels a little more like a living room- or your home’s interior feels a little more outside than it would otherwise. Look for a high-quality sunroom with good screens that will stop any insect life or critters in their tracks, while still allowing the clearest view possible of the outside of your home. Adding a fan to this space ensures it’ll be comfortable year-round: and can add a lot of value to your home.
Since 2020 many buyers have been feening for a way to spend more time outside, so having this on your home as an option can help them want to buy.
Daily life is stressful, so why not give yourself a space to escape away into? Create an oasis of water and steam in your backyard, and you’ll feel your stress simply float away on the warm water.
PDC spas can allow you to practice swimming as far and as fast as you want while taking up a far smaller footprint than the average Olympic pool. These are also great for physical therapy or simply working out.
Hot tubs are also making a major return in the 2020s, with more homeowners seeking out the relaxing hot bubbles to melt away all of their stresses. These create an incredible entertaining space where you’ll be excited to show off how comfortable it is to simply sink into the water.
Consider building an outdoor space for showering and a bathroom nearby so that guests don’t have to stop inside every time they need the restroom. This will save the interior of your home from mess and trouble while adding convenience for everyone visiting.
Give Yourself an Outdoor Kitchen
Entertaining while you’re cooking is fun: but it often requires you to be stuck in the kitchen while your guests are enjoying themselves elsewhere. This can be annoying and leave you unable to fully take part in the social gathering.
Why not enjoy socializing as well?
With an outdoor kitchen, you can still cook and create the fantastic meals that your guests have come to expect from you, but you also get to show off a little bit and enjoy the attention of cooking in front of others and creating a unique experience.
Make sure to get a high-quality grill that can offer you the chance to cook at a level heat the entire time while also looking great on your property. Also, make sure to have plenty of high-quality and comfortable furniture around in the most popular furniture wood stain colors to impress your guests.
Use Sound to Make it Fantastical.
Using sound in design is something that few homeowners consider, but it can make a huge difference. Cleverly hiding speakers throughout your property can create a level sound experience that makes it sound like it’s even and completely covering the yard. This allows for music during events without having to deal with one blaring loud speaker set in the corner. Instead, the music will travel and stay perfectly level regardless of where the guests are. This can make your lawn feel high-class and can take it to another level.
Add a Firepit for Classic Charm
Fire pits are one of the best ways to create visual appeal while also adding an awesome social space for events and gatherings. If you’re entertaining, you can make s’mores and hotdogs on it, or you can simply enjoy the warmth and incredible beauty it adds. Fire pits can look however you want them to, from vintage to modern designs, and add just enough drama that they’re fun to look at and are absolutely gorgeous.
Create Walkable Paths
Walkable paths are an awesome item to add that will make your property feel more welcoming and aimed toward the future people who will live there. Look into pedestal paving, which can pull your paving up away from the ground if you’re in an area that’s prone to gathering water.
