Whether it's the front area or back area of your house, now is the time to turn your homes outdoor space into your new favourite place. With difficult current times around the globe calling for us to stay safe and socially distant, we need make home the place we want to be. Now let's get into the different ways to get the most use out of your outdoor living space! 

Boost Curb Appeal and Change How Being Home Makes You Feel 

The perfect place to start maximizing your homes potential is by giving the front exterior a makeover. Afterall, how excited can someone be to sit out on the front porch overlooking views of a cracked driveway and garden full of overgrown weeds. Enjoy spending time out in the front of your home as much as the interior by sprucing up areas that may be in need of some tender loving care, such as: 

  • Transforming the driveway with the latest stamped concrete designs

  • Removing any weeds and debris from the garden and lawn 

  • Putting up a fresh coat of paint with a pop of colour to the front door and garage door

  • Washing the street facing windows from the outside 

Once you take the front exterior of your home from drab to fab there will be more incentive to enjoy spending time doing things like: 

  • Taking in the visual reminder of your creativity that helped design a unique stamped concrete driveway that shows off the personality of your home (and will always make the best first impression) 

  • Setting up a small table with a couple chairs on the porch to chat with friends and passing neighbours from a safe social distance 

  • Planting and garden tending for some relaxation and tranquility in a proactive way 

After giving the front exterior of your home a makeover all that's left to do is embrace how much more time you want spend enjoying that outdoor space. 

Transform Your Backyard into an Outdoor Oasis  

As we live in the midst of a difficult period in time, the need to escape is probably on a lot of minds. However, with leisure travel currently at a halt, it's time to turn your backyard into a personal oasis style escape instead. There are plenty of amazing ideas to help with a backyard transformation, such as: 

  • Installing an outdoor firepit with seating 

  • Hanging up outdoor string lights so a dark sky no longer calls for going inside 

  • Putting up retaining walls to separate the yard into different sections (like an area to plant a garden, an area to set up an outdoor dining table, and an area to set up lounge chairs or lay down towels to stretch out and safely soak up some vitamin D from the sun)   

Best of all, creating an outdoor oasis is the perfect chance to put your DIY skills to the test. Instead of tossing out that old metal flowerpot, try repurposing it into a new firepit instead. 

Now pick between the front or backyard for where to start trying the different ways to get the most use out of your outdoor space!
