It is finally summer and that means days and days of warm, sunny weather. Why spend June, July, and August cooped up inside your home? If you begin a remodel now, you’ll have plenty of summer left to enjoy the nice weather. And of course, in Southwest Florida, you can enjoy your outdoor living space year round. Wouldn’t you love to be sitting on your patio, reading a book or enjoying time with friends, even in December? A remodeled outdoor living space can do this for you and a lot more, including:
#1 You’ll Enjoy Your Home More
One of the best ways to enjoy your summer months is by being poolside. With a gorgeous pool, patio lounge area, and floating spa bar, it will be just another day in paradise. After all, isn’t that exactly why you moved to Southwest Florida in the first place? You want a home you absolutely love, and a redesigned patio can provide you with this appreciation for your house.
#2 It May Actually Save You Money
How often do you go out to eat? What about staycations for a few days to enjoy the sun and relaxing atmosphere at the beach? When friends come in town, do you go bar hopping? Do you find yourself getting bored at home and golfing more often than you did when you first moved here? An upgrade to your home could mean you actually enjoy all of that at your house instead of continually paying to eat, drink, and relax elsewhere. A large, weather-resistant table with an umbrella and nice lanterns means the party can be at your house, rain or shine and day or night!
#3 People Will Visit More Often
One of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors is by inviting people over for a BBQ. This could be anyone from the neighbors down the street to friends and family who still live up north. Everyone will want to visit your home if you have a fantastic pool area, outside bar, and firepit! You may just find your northern friends and relatives think of your house as their vacation spot now. But don’t worry, a fully-functional outdoor kitchen complete with a grill, sink, refrigerator, bar, and seating area will make entertaining even a large group of people a breeze.
#4 It Will Help Your Resale Value
After years of enjoying your new outdoor space, you may decide it is time to move. The patio and pool deck you’ve already enjoyed has one last benefit for you: your home’s resale value! A recent study published by the National Association of Realtors maintains that inground swimming pool installations can increase the value of homes from eight percent to as much as 15 percent. Other upgrades, like an outdoor kitchen with granite countertops and ledge stone, add even more.
