Since the downturn in the economy many people are now entertaining at home. Most homeowners want a relaxing spot to enjoy the outdoors and hang out with family and friends.
No longer relegated to just children’s toys and overgrown grass, the backyard is being reclaimed as an extension of the interior of the home. There is a growing trend of moving the indoors outside and creating comfortable living spaces such as living rooms and dining rooms in the backyard Here there are some important considerations to help you with the makeover of your backyard.
There are many possible options: pool areas, Zen gardens, outdoor lounge areas, playground areas, outdoor hot tubs, etc. It depends not only on your space and investment, also on the needs of inhabitants of your home. For instance, if you have a dog will be difficult to maintain a Zen garden. If there are small kids, you probably will think in them providing safety areas to play
Locate your outdoor lounge area in direct connection with your living room. In that way, it will be an extension of it, you will improve the views from indoors, and it will have an easier flow of traffic between spaces. The same if you are installing a barbecue or a picnic area, it should be close to the kitchen. Pool areas should have access to a bathroom without crossing the entire house.
