In all housing markets—but especially today's—homeowners are looking for ways to stand out from the pack when it comes time to sell. Here's a great way to do just that.
Do you need to do something to differentiate your outdoor space from the rest? Before committing to that big kitchen remodel or installing a pool, check out these ideas to make your outdoor space more comfortable—and appealing.
Automatic shades mean perfect comfort
Porches are feature pieces on about 64% of homes built over the last decade. When it comes to protecting your porch from the elements there are a few paths you can take.
The most popular approach is the screened-in porch as it will give you the ability to take indoor activities to the outside. If you would like more control you can explore the option of automatic shades that adjust with the push of a button.
These screens can protect you and your family from bugs, wind, rain and other nuisances while you enjoy your new outdoor space.
Stay outside—and toasty—even when the temp drops
To get the most out of your investment, you're going to want to make the porch a space that is useable year-round. For those nights when things get a little chilly, you should consider installing a fireplace on the porch. Another option is propane heaters that do a great job of keeping you and any guests warm in the coldest of temperatures.
