    4 Biggest Outdoor Investments

    Posted by: Robert Palmer on January 18, 2023

    With the start of a new year, comes a new “to-do” list of things you want to change or improve around your home. Not only is it a priority to invest in your indoor living space, but it is equally important to prioritize your home’s outdoor living space.

    Taking care of your lawn is important, and for many that means hiring a company to maintain it year-round...but how often do you really sit and enjoy it? Life can get busy.

    Having a designated outdoor living space not only provides you with a place to sit back and relax, but it also improves your mood and reduces levels of stress.

    Here are 4 of the biggest outdoor investments of 2022.

    1. Creating Indoor Spaces Outdoors

    Coming in at the top of the list, according to Market Research, one of the most popular trends they saw for 2022 was creating indoor spaces in an outdoor setting. Outdoor dining areas have become more and more popular with people wanting to spend more time in their yard or simply just outside. This space depends on your lifestyle and what you want to use it for.

    For example, if you love to entertain, you might want to spring for a large dining table. If it is just for your family or a few friends, you might want to have it be a smaller, more intimate setting. Regardless of how you design it, the possibilities are endless for how you could use it. It can be used to entertain parties, have small get-togethers, enjoy meals, work from home, or simply a place to sit, relax, and enjoy your backyard.

    2. Adding a Deck or Patio

    Adding a deck to your home can not only increase its value but adding this space to your home is appealing for many reasons. One reason is that a deck increases the home’s usable space. It becomes a popular place to entertain and have family and friends gather.

    This makes it a perfect location for comfortable outdoor furniture, making the space not only more attractive but also more enjoyable. Being a homeowner in Ohio, we may not see many extremely hot, sunny days. Having an area that offers the option for shade, while still being able to enjoy the weather, is a great benefit to investing in a deck/patio.

    3. Having an Outdoor Kitchen

    If you are still looking for something new to add to your backyard or to add to your home’s value, having an outdoor kitchen is also at the top of the outdoor investment “wish list.”  Outdoor kitchens are undoubtedly a big investment, but they will increase the value of your home indefinitely.

    Most experts agree that having a grill/barbecue is a key feature to incorporate in your backyard living space. One of the best reasons for building an outdoor kitchen/grill area is that it gives you a reason to enjoy more of the outdoors and of your yard.

    4. Making Space for Year-Round Use

    Although these things sound great, I think we can all agree when it comes to Ohio weather, we all know we only get to enjoy warm weather and an outdoor space a few months out of the year.

    Considering that the top trends for 2022 include creating spaces for year-round use, it is no surprise that some of the most popular outdoor living space features to invest in is a heating source so that you are able to enjoy your outdoor space for most of the year.

    Modern outdoor living spaces offer many options for keeping warm. Some of these include having a fireplace, a gas fireplace, and/or an outdoor gas heater. Each of these options come in all shapes, styles, and designs to fit in with your lifestyle making it the perfect addition to your outdoor space.
