The Main Benefits of Having a Patio

Homeowners constantly work to improve their homes and create spaces that fit their lifestyles. When considering home projects, the focus is often on areas inside the house's four walls, which can be a missed opportunity. As you look to improve your home this year, consider adding a stunning outdoor space. Let's look at some of the main benefits of adding a patio.

Extend Your Living Space

There is nothing quite like having a living space right outside your home. Having a patio allows you to take full advantage of the weather in your area. Enjoy a quiet moment of Zen with your coffee in the morning or a nice relaxing glass of wine on a summer evening. Even on days when the weather is less-than-favorable, a covered patio might be your favorite place in the house!

Expand Your Footprint for Entertaining

The added entertainment space will also be a bonus for hosting parties and events. No more worries about cutting down the guest list to fit everyone in your home! Your friends and family will flock to your patio for barbeques and fun by your outdoor fireplace.

Controlling Creature Comforts

When you plan to add a patio to your home, you can combat some cons of spending time outdoors. First, your patio plan can accommodate shade or sun needs so that you and your guests are comfortable on your new patio. Second, a hardscape provides a more supportive surface to walk on in your yard. Finally, consider options to screen out insects or pests.

An Economical Home Improvement Option

Outdoor spaces add character and functionality to your home in an affordable way. First, outdoor spaces don't require investing in drywall, carpet, plumbing, tile, and insulation, which can bring up the cost of your project. Second, because the space is not technically considered a living space, your new patio will not increase your taxable square footage. And the cherry on top is the increase in property value!

Increase Property Value

A yard with a hardscape element is a huge draw for potential buyers. Adding a patio increases the value of your home and adds some beautiful curb appeal. In addition, adding a patio means a more attractive and valuable home with space to enjoy the outdoors, host parties, raise children, and play with pets.
