The start of summer makes many people think about losing weight, getting in shape, starting a new project…it’s about new beginnings. It also encourages us to update our homes. Add a fresh coat of paint to the walls, replace worn furniture, rearrange bedrooms, or refinish the cabinets.
Additionally, the weather probably has us all feeling a little stir-crazy and anxious to get outside. As children, we were told over and over to go outside and play, and as adults we’re heeding that advice. More and more home buyers are looking for patios, lanais, porches and other outside sanctuaries. We want a space that feels like a getaway that doesn’t actually require going anywhere.
Have you been longing to utilize your outside space more? Or have you been coveting your neighbor’s new patio and hot tub set-up? Stop dreaming and start doing. Here are a few suggestions to maximize your outdoor space or create that new retreat you’ve been dreaming of, with some simple concrete stain and sealer products.
Make Comfort a Priority
If you already have an outside space but it’s furnished with plastic chairs and a rusty table, you’re probably not going to use it very much. Consider splurging on cushy outdoor furniture and weather resistant pillows. The more enticing and comfortable your outside space is, the more you’ll use it.
If your space is covered, great, if not, you can consider adding an awning or pergola to make it more usable even in adverse weather. You can even find an affordable—and decorative—storage box to contain your cushions when not in use. Add rugs, plants, even a small water fountain to make your outside retreat as welcoming as possible.
Design on a Dime
If you don’t have a deck or patio, you’d be surprised how affordably you can create your own outside paradise. Gone are the days of a boring gray cement pad. With YouTube, Pinterest, and Redi-Mix concrete stains and colors, even brand new do-it- yourselfers can create a beautiful outside space with decorative colored concrete to enjoy for years to come. And as a bonus, such a space will increase your home’s resale value.
