Many homes can begin to feel cramped over time, whether due to a growing family or just a growing accumulation of stuff. Many homeowners who complain of this effect also have large outdoor spaces that go tragically underused. A simple solution to this predicament is to add an outdoor patio to your home, putting your yard to work to give you more living space.
An outdoor patio gives you a place in your yard to relax and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Even a spot to put a couple of deck chairs allows you to spend more time in nature. Studies have linked time in nature to a number of health benefits such as reduced stress as well as higher vitamin D production, which can lead to improved mood. Though you might think that you can spend more time outdoors without adding to your home, having a dedicated space in your yard makes it easier and more appealing to form a habit of outdoor relaxation.
A patio is also a wonderful place for entertaining. Hosting guests outdoors allows everyone to enjoy nice weather and also keeps crowding and foot traffic inside your home to a minimum. The open setting of an outdoor patio offers plenty of room for seating and greatly reduces the required cleanup after your guests have gone home.
