3 Outdoor Living Ideas for Your Next Home Improvement Project

While no one wishes COVID-19 happened, the pandemic has brought at least one positive change. Now more than ever, people have the flexibility to work remotely, and they’re taking advantage of it. With more time spent at home, people move or make home improvements to create spaces that meet their needs. To accomplish this, many people try to make the best use of all the available space, including the outdoors. If you’re looking for outdoor living ideas, Prime Outdoor Living shares three here.

3 Outdoor Living Ideas for Your Next Home Improvement Project

1. Focus on Hardscape Design for Your Entire Space

Standalone projects are fine, and there are many to choose from. In fact, we’ll cover a couple in this post. At the same time, we encourage you to think about your entire outdoor space and the potential it has to be transformed into a stylish, cohesive, outdoor living space. Like the image in this post, think about a gorgeous stone fireplace, beautiful wood plank ceiling, and concrete flooring. Or, picture a splendid stone pathway leading to a pergola and surrounded by a luscious landscape. Begin with the end in mind, and then you can break bigger projects down into smaller standalone ones.

2. Factor Utilities into Your Planning and Project Timing

Fireplaces and outdoor kitchens add luxury, style, and ease to your outdoor space. If you run gas, you’ll want to consider the placement of these items. Additionally, it’s best to hold off on pouring concrete and installing flooring until anything requiring underground wiring is done. These two elements, though, add a refined touch to any outdoor living space.


3. Go to the Next Level with Outdoor Lighting

In terms of outdoor living ideas, lighting isn’t anything new. Many homeowners carefully select and place outdoor lighting to highlight their home, landscaping, decks, and paths. Outdoor living spaces provide ample opportunity to add to the ambiance of the space.  Lighting placement, style, and wattage should all be considered in your project. After all, the right lighting brings life to your finished project and puts everything on display.
