A well-designed backyard that boasts a patio or a deck can boost the value of your home by as much as 10%. Whether you decide to upgrade the space to host guests in more comfort and style or simply to create the perfect outdoor oasis for yourself, these tips will help you transform your bland backyard into a feature that boosts property value and your lifestyle.
Install Mood Lighting
Lighting is one of the most affordable ways to transform any area of your home visually. But outdoor lighting is also a security feature that boosts home safety.
That said, fun outdoor fairy lights can help create a lighthearted ambiance that compliments bohemian home themes, while sophisticated scone lighting can add charm to a luxury outdoor entertainment area that will charm your guests. Beyond the different light designs, you can also consider outdoor solar lighting solutions to ensure power outages don’t impact your ability to host guests or relax outside late into the night.
Find the Right Seating
One of the most important elements in any outdoor entertainment space is the seating. The wrong type of seating will have your guests eagerly anticipating their chance to leave. At the same time, the wrong seating can make relaxing outside with a good book pretty much impossible. So it’s important to find seating solutions that offer the right amount of comfort, style, and support for their intended use.
When investing in any kind of outdoor furniture, it’s best to look for durable materials that are capable of withstanding exposure to harsh, direct sunlight and the climate. Wicker, treated wood, wrought iron, metals, and synthetic fabrics are typically the best material options. Moreover, cushion fabrics must be suitable for outdoor use and removable for easy cleaning.
Install a Fire Pit
A fire pit can amplify comfort during colder seasons and add dramatic charm to your outdoor area. Moreover, fire pit kits are available in such a pretty wide variety. So you can easily find a fire pit style and size that’s perfect for your space.
Remember to get the right kind of seating to add even more value to your fire pit investment. Outdoor lounge chairs, patio chair sets, wicker sectional sets, accent stools, and swivel chairs are all great seating options to consider.
Add a Few Fresh Plants
A few fresh new plants can leave your outdoor area looking like an entirely new space. And if you don’t have any greenery in your backyard at the moment, adding plants will make an even bigger difference. You can opt for a few large modern cement planters, vertical garden wall shelving, small pots, creepers that take over, and so many other great ideas to decorate your yard with plants.
Keep the Space Clean
It can be tricky to keep an outdoor area clean. Not only will you need to clean your entertainment area each time the rain leaves a mess, but you will also need to consider the mess caused by wind that carries dust and dirt and, of course, general use.
Make a habit of cleaning your outdoor area at least once a week or before and after each use. Wiping down furniture, cleaning upholstery, sweeping and mopping floors, sanitizing the outdoor kitchen area, and freshening up the fire pit are all chores that maintain the space.
Repaint Exterior Property Walls
Regardless of how much effort and money you spend to create the backyard oasis of your dreams, it won’t look all that great if the exterior walls of your home look shabby. If wall paint is faded, peeling, cracked, or chipping off, repainting the exterior walls will also boost property value quite a bit by improving curb appeal.
Improve the Landscaping
Along with the condition of a property’s exterior walls, the yard also influences the overall vibrance of any outdoor entertainment area. So investing in landscaping improvements is worthwhile.
It’s best to choose a landscaping plan that complements the style of your outdoor area. For example, low-maintenance and simplistic landscaping ideas best complement luxury and modern entertainment areas.
There are tons of ways to transform the average, bland outdoor entertainment area into a feature that adds value to your home and your lifestyle. With that said, remember to create a budget when planning any kind of home renovation project. Creating a budget is the only way to prevent overspending on details that won’t make much of a difference. While detailing your budget, you will also be able to plan the project better.
