Refresh Home Outdoor Space
Outdoor spaces can be a great statement piece for any home, but they are also functional areas. They can be used as a family area, a poolside lounge, a place to entertain guests, a cooking area, and so much more. Since they’re outside, though, they can also be one of the most challenging spaces to maintain and keep up-to-date. They’re also outside for everyone to see, so keeping up with the latest trends is more important for outdoor spaces than most indoor ones. But just how does one refresh their outdoor space, and do you have to?
Does My Home’s Outdoor Space Need a Refresh?
While neglecting to refresh your outdoor living space often doesn’t have a severe impact on the rest of your house, it’s probably a good idea to fix it up now and again. After all, it can be embarrassing to have people over when your outdoor area isn’t well kept or looks outdated. The first nudge toward needing to change your outdoor space to be more trendy comes with the changing of the seasons. An open gazebo isn’t going to be nearly as useful on the frigid winter nights as it would be in the warm, welcoming Summer evenings. Similarly, a heated, closed-in porch is great for winter but would be an absolute waste of beautiful summer weather.
Another, more obvious, sign that your outdoor space needs a refresh is when it starts to look a bit shabby or overgrown. If it’s been a while since your deck was initially built and the wood is getting worn and creaky, it may be time for a change. If your previously luscious flower garden is no longer filled with rich soil, overgrown with weeds and other foliage to the point where you can barely tell there was even a garden there, it may be time for a change.
The final sign that you need to refresh your outdoor space is when you find yourself comparing it to the ones pictured in magazines or on tv and wishing it looked as nice. Your outdoor living space is supposed to be there to make life more fun and exciting, not to loom over your head as a burden that has yet to be dealt with.
How to Refresh your Outdoor Space
If you’re updating your outdoor living space for summer, as most people do, you have a nearly endless variety of options at your fingertips. You could make your porch more open and breezy. You could decorate your patio with furniture and fabrics that express your personality. Anyone can decorate gazebos with candles, string lights, and more to look like a magical fairy getaway. There are even ways to make your deck into what is essentially an outdoor kitchen, complete with a grill, stove, refrigerator, and more. Make every meal into a picnic with an outdoor dining area. The choice is yours, and the possibilities stretch as far as your imagination. All you need is a concept and the right people to build it.
Winthorpe Design and Build
Speaking of the right people for your outdoor space refresh, Winthorpe Design and Build has been in the Design-Build business for years and has seen just about everything. We’ve designed and built some pretty crazy projects, and we’re willing to try some more. No matter your idea, our team of expert designers is ready, willing, and able to sit down with you and talk things through until we reach a practical and affordable solution that fulfills your heart’s desire.
We’ve done loads of builds before and, unlike those of an architect, our designs are practical and can be built functionally (for a fraction of the price that most architects charge). Rather than going back and forth repeatedly between the construction team and the architect on your project, hire Winthorpe Design and Build. We do both, so you’ll never become the go-between for the people who are supposed to be working for you.
Even after we walk you through the entire process, from the initial contact to the end of construction, Winthorpe Design and Build stays by your side, ready to deal with any problems or concerns that arise from the build. We aren’t like other design and build teams that shake your hand and walk away once the check clears. We care about our clients’ happiness, which is why we make 9-week, 6-month, and one-year follow-up appointments to make sure that everything is still as you hoped.
