The Benefits of an Outdoor Living Space

The Benefits of an Outdoor Living Space

One of the most popular trends in residential architecture now is the creation of dramatic outdoor living areas. Constructing an outdoor living space increases your home’s square footage without putting your family through a chaotic room-addition project. And, being in Southern California, you can enjoy spending time outside year-round. Here are some other key benefits of outdoor living spaces and how you can design yours with energy efficiency in mind.

Get Extra Fresh Air and Sunshine

In a society of immersive video gaming and non-stop social media experiences, it’s tough to get your children off the couch and into the sunshine. Installing an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, or open-air theater makes the task easier. Your outdoor kitchen can be as simple as laying down a decorative patio, casual seating, and colorful plants around a grill. You can also design one that includes fancy features such as a pizza oven, all-weather cabinets, and even a dishwasher for easy cleanup. Family meals get an instant makeover when they take place surrounded by sunny skies or sunset views.

Entertain Guests in Style

Your home is party central for holiday gatherings. Recurring guests, new friends, and family additions can quickly make your living room, kitchen, and dining room cramped instead of cozy. Why not take your entertaining to the next level with a custom outdoor living room that reflects your style? This space doesn’t have to be an energy hog either. Solar lights and energy-efficient appliances will keep operating costs low.

Reduce Strain on Your HVAC System and Indoor Lighting

Heating and cooling can account for nearly half of the average household’s energy consumption. Spending more time outside allows you to reduce your HVAC energy requirements and your reliance on artificial lighting.
