Outdoor living spaces have become very popular. With more people working from home, indoor/outdoor living is a trend that’s here to stay.

The past two years have seen a dramatic increase in improvements on outdoor living spaces such as decks and covered patios. From braai areas and relaxation spaces to covered dining areas for alfresco family meals, homeowners are maximising their outdoor space.

Real estate sales indicate that buyers are willing to pay a premium for properties that have functional outdoor spaces where they can relax, socialise, interact, and entertain.

Lifestyle Awning Solutions has responded to this growing demand with our cutting-edge patio roof and awning options. A patio roof/awning provides protection from the weather and almost complete control over lighting, ambiance, and privacy. Our patio roofs and awnings are used to upgrade backyard patios, pools, and terraces for a more comfortable outdoor experience.

Outdoor living spaces are one of the most sought-after features of the residential housing market. Consider the intrinsic value of stylish, covered spaces:

  • Improved resale value/return on investment

More and more, homeowners are realising the many advantages of spending time outdoors, particularly in urban environments where access to natural surroundings is somewhat limited. A home equipped with a spacious covered outdoor area will net a higher sale value than one without. But it’s not just residential properties that benefit from revamped outdoor spaces. Cafes, bars, and restaurants can expand seating capability and draw in more patrons with alfresco dining options.

  • Health benefits of outdoors

Spending time outside, whether at the park, the beach, or your own yard, is good for your physical health and emotional wellbeing. Research has shown that people who spend more time outside have less incidence of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, and mood disorders. In addition, exposure to trees, plant life, and greenery has incredibly positive effects on cognitive functioning and can relieve anxiety and depression.  Spending time outdoors under your patio roof/awning is a great form of therapy.

  • Personal enjoyment and entertainment

Whether you want a luxurious area for entertaining friends or a cosy nook for watching the kids play, outdoor living spaces make sense on several levels. It brings the comforts and amenities of interior spaces and provide opportunities to host family gatherings, parties, and celebrations in your backyard.
