Everything you’ve heard about curb appeal is true; the exterior of your house makes a first impression. Improvements to your home’s exterior also allows you to feel better about spending time outdoors!
The majority of today’s residential renovation projects include basic to elaborate curb appeal improvements. Because they have such a commanding presence, upgrading a garage door with a vibrant color, engaging design or unexpected material such as glass, can dramatically improve the way your home looks. New outdoor architecture design, porches and decks, sunroom additions, porte-cochères and entryway construction, can turn a tired home into a neighborhood masterpiece.
After being cooped up for months, you want to get out in the fresh spring air. Nothing says relaxation like a beautiful deck. It’s great for getting Vitamin D-filled sunshine, hanging out with family or entertaining friends with a cookout. According to home improvement experts, a deck addition can deliver as much as a 90% return on investment.
Four season sunrooms can bring serenity and energy of nature, without inclement weather, pests, or other intrusions. A sunroom addition can also open the flow of your floor plan lending elegance and ease to your entertaining style. Energy efficient windows will make full use of the sun and create a window on the outside world 365 days of the year.
If you enjoy grilling outdoors, you may consider taking it to the next level by creating an outdoor kitchen. Building an island around a grill in your backyard increases the amount of living space the whole family can enjoy. Building under an existing deck or adding a roof allows the space to be used during inclement weather.
In addition to having more space for relaxing and entertaining, outdoor kitchens provide the flexibility of not always cooking indoors and eating more healthy. Grills, smokers and outdoor fireplaces/ovens are perfect for adventurous recipes and cooking techniques that are not as conducive to indoor cooking.
