With the real estate market finally back on the rise, homeowners are looking for ways to upgrade their homes. Maximizing how much you and your family enjoy your home doesn’t only mean how you utilize the space inside your home, but your outdoor space as well. With hardscaping projects becoming more popular, it makes sense that these contemporary trends are catching on more than ever. These three hardscape trends are sure to enhance your curb appeal and make your home a more enjoyable place to live and entertain.
Taking Your Living Room Outside
There’s no doubt that you’re familiar with outdoor spaces like patios and decks. These spaces provide the perfect areas to cook, entertain, and enjoy company, all while enjoying the fresh spring and summer air. Today, a popular trend is to totally enhance the idea of a patio and turn it into a glamorous, covered outdoor living area. This space could include everything you have in your actual living room, like a large screen TV or a high-quality stereo system. If you’re frequently entertaining guests of all ages, consider a ping-pong table and a bar with beverages for everyone. That’s definitely a step up from the usual cooler on the back porch!
Cooking in the Great Outdoors
If you enjoy using your outdoor space, you probably love to grill. Grilling is one of the many simple pleasures that comes with summer living on the East Coast. But why stop at a mere grill when you can build an entire kitchen in your backyard? Outdoor kitchens are ideal for those who entertain all summer long. With an outdoor kitchen, the cook will never have to skip a beat. Everyone can have food delivered to them immediately right from the comfort of your outdoor kitchen.
Keeping it Natural
When it comes to the color and style of your hardscape project, a natural-looking stone is what is most popular. This trend is great because the look of natural stone is timeless and classic. If at any point you are looking to sell your home, tan or gray natural stone will stay relevant no matter what the current style is.
