Your outdoor living spaces add precious square footage to your home over the spring and summer months. Feel confident bringing the dinner party outside by making a few simple upgrades to your home’s outdoor living spaces. Below are just a few examples of upgrades you could make around your home this spring to boost the form and function of your outdoor spaces.
As with the interior of your home, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the exterior of your property. Updating the siding, railings, and even your doors themselves can add a nice pop of color to improve curb appeal. This is a great opportunity to say goodbye to any colors or design elements that are dating your home.
If you have a wood deck or dock, sun and everyday wear will inevitably leave your deck looking tired after years of use. It is good practice to sand and re-stain your deck every few years to maintain the appearance and integrity of a wood deck. This routine maintenance is integral to protecting and preserving the wood, ensuring a longer lifespan for your deck.
Installing lighting throughout your backyard is a great way to improve the feeling of luxury in your outdoor space. Consider lining your gardens and walkways with pathway lights or installing pot lights in your deck. These options make your backyard look beautiful at night and improve the safety of your yard. You can even source solar options, free from cords or any electrical use from the house.
Upgrading your outdoor entertainment features improves the overall aesthetic of your space, but also enhances the function and your enjoyment of the space. If you have an old, rusted barbecue grill, consider an upgrade! If you have a pool or a hot tub, consider updating features, if not updating the entire unit. For a pool, this could mean installing a new, more modern liner. For a hot tub, this could mean upgrading to a new hot tub cover to improve the overall appearance and function of the space.
Upgrading your home’s outdoor living spaces doesn’t need to cost a small fortune. Small changes and upgrades can make a big impact. If you are working within a tight budget, focus on the area that you use the most and will make the best impact on your lifestyle. You can always take on a new area next year!
