How Do You Plan an Outdoor Living Space?

Planning an outdoor living space can feel overwhelming when you have no idea what may go into this type of planning. You probably have some ideas of what you want, but you probably don’t know where to begin when it comes to putting that plan into a more concrete form. Don’t worry; that’s where we can help. Keep the following in mind when planning your outdoor living space.

  • Look at your current outdoor space: Consider what space you have and the different areas of your outdoor living space. You may have multiple areas to use.
  • Consider your budget: How much are you willing to pay for this project?
  • Determine what you want to feel: how do you want to feel when you are outdoors? For example, do you want a peaceful oasis, or do you want to feel better about guests coming to your home?
  • What functions are important: what types of functions do you think would be most useful to you? How do you see yourself using your outdoor living space?
  • What’s your most important goal: if you had to choose just one thing, what is the most important function or design element you would choose for your backyard living space.

You should now have a better idea of the elements that will go into your outdoor living space plan, and you can start to make decisions about the elements you want.

What are Some Design Considerations Related to the Outdoor Living Area

There are many things you’ll want to think about when you are designing your outdoor living areas with professionals. Keeping these factors in mind can make sure that you don’t regret your decisions and realize that you went about your outdoor living spaces in all the wrong ways.

  • Privacy matters, but how important is it? Your design will depend on how much privacy you’ll want to have in your space, so consider what level of privacy you want.
  • What type of color scheme and finishes will you want in your design? There are so many options, and you’ll want to think about the aesthetic you want for your outdoor space.
  • You should also think about what kind of access your outdoor space has to your indoor space. Many people like to create a connection between their spaces and make the indoor and outdoor not feel completely separate. Others like to have more clearly defined sections.
  • Consider the weather and wear. Weather isn’t always what you want it to be. By considering the weather, you can determine if there are certain design elements you want to put in place because you’ll want to extend the useability of your outdoor space. For example, a roof can make an outdoor space more functional, even when there’s rain.
  • How big do you want your space to be? Your design will include what kind of shape and size your space will be. This shape and size will depend on the space you have, but it will also depend on the uses you have in mind for your spaces.

Outdoor spaces are so fun to have, but unfortunately, a lot of factors can make it hard for homeowners to figure out what design elements are best for them. We’re here to help you make the best decisions and understand the full range of consequences and rewards certain design decisions can have.

How Much Value Does an Outdoor Living Space Add?

Outdoor living spaces can be covetable. You’ll want to ensure that you leave some yard space for kids or animals, but beyond that, you can definitely improve your home’s value with these spaces. For example, a patio can give you an 8-10% increase in your home’s value. Many improvements will return much of what you invest when or if you sell your home.

At the end of the day, it’s most important that you make decisions about what you’ll use most. However, making investments that add value to your home will help you if you plan on reselling in the near future or want the peace of mind that the money you put in can be returned when you do sell your home.
