Outdoor Living Areas

Northwest Indiana Outdoor Living Areas

An outdoor living space is worth investing in, with many families often spending hours on end outdoors. Are you dreaming of an outdoor living area in which to relax and make memories? Maybe it includes a perfect patio, grill, and table set up, beautiful stone features or florals. Well-designed landscapes are nice to look at, but did you know there are many other benefits to adding an outdoor living space to your home?

Increase the Value

Outdoor living spaces are investments. Depending on how big, and exactly what you want your outdoor living space design to look like, it could be a rather significant investment. The good news is that adding an outdoor living area to your home is only going to add value. When you are ready to sell your home,  it is likely that you will get your money back. Outdoor living spaces with a little character tend to stand out in a buyer’s mind, and your home will move to the top of their list.

Ease The Crowding

We’ve been there. You have a summer party, and your guests stand crowded together in the house. Before you know it you are hanging out in a sauna. An outdoor living space helps to ease tight indoor spaces so you can relax and move freely. If your outdoor living space is large enough for a kitchen or at least a grill, you can enjoy the party with your guests while preparing food. With a proper outdoor living space, you’ll have a house where everyone wants to hang out.

Outdoor Bars

The concept of outdoor living has significantly increased over the last ten years. Families have begun to shift their focus from entertaining family and friends from the inside of their homes to the outdoors. This has changed the landscaping industry in dramatic ways. Landscaping designers & contractors are now building outdoor kitchens, bars, fireplaces, and firepits into residential properties as never before.

Having a bar outside is extremely convenient. No longer do you have to go wait in line to get a beverage. You can walk outside and you are already in a relaxing oasis. You can be your own bartender, and of course, prices are much more reasonable.

Outdoor Kitchens

Why run back and forth to the house when you can move everything you need outside?

Few summer pleasures are as much fun as a cookout. The smell of grilling food is mouth-watering, everything tastes great, and it’s hard not to have a good time – that is, unless you’re the harried host running back and forth between the grill and the kitchen for the chicken and steak, forks and knives, beer and wine, and ketchup and mustard. An outdoor kitchen can help you slow down and spend more time with family and friends by putting all the ingredients for outdoor dining close at hand. It can be as simple as a storage cabinet for cooking gear or as ambitious as a full kitchen with a grill, refrigerator, sink, and eating area. Either way, your yard will gain an outside “room” that’s a natural gathering spot. Let us here at the Shelton Group help you and your family bring your normal indoor activities outside and gather around in a new outdoor kitchen.
