Living and working outdoors was not an option for our ancestors, who had little choice but to rub elbows with nature. As technology improved, we rapidly started moving indoors to escape the elements but left a little something of ourselves behind.
The good news is that with modern technology and skilled craftsmanship, we can return to the great outdoors in comfort and style. Constructing an outdoor living space to relax and work in can benefit you in several ways, for example:
1) You’ll be More Productive
Indoor spaces are, by definition, limiting. Your creativity should have no limits and you will find yourself able to get more done in less time if you aren’t surrounded by four walls constantly. Working in close proximity to plants and outdoor environments can improve neurotransmitter production in the brain, which also improves positive feeling and well-being.
2) Healthy Living
Having access to an outdoor space can confer several health benefits to you and your family. The ability to step outside and relax for awhile can reduce stress and provide a therapeutic release, while access to large open spaces can be good for children and pets alike. Healthy living for the whole family becomes possible when you have access to the outdoors.
3) Tangible Value
In addition to health and social benefits, adding an outdoor living space to your home has very real tangible benefits as well. Adding attractive features to your home will increase its value and sometimes the addition of a creative or unique outdoor living space can be enough to tilt a potential buyer in your favor.
4) Social Fare
The ability to host events in an outdoor setting opens up numerous possibilities that you would not have otherwise. Backyard BBQ’s, outdoor parties and general social gatherings become simple matters when you have a well-designed outdoor living space to work with. In addition to the expanded hosting abilities, an outdoor area is a great way to impress visitors.
