Benefits of Outdoor Living Spaces
With the pandemic, we had to do a “staycation” and those who have been lucky enough to have a garden have enjoyed their outdoor living space more than ever. They are many pleasant ways to savour our gardens. But isn’t it lovely to have a beautiful outdoor lounge area to relax?
An outdoor living area can become an extension of our home in the summer months when the weather permits. A well-designed space on your patio is a perfect place to host parties and family activities where we can relax. We can enjoy our outdoor sitting/dining room to have drinks, grill and enjoy the fresh air.
There is a trend in creating an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue to entertain which becomes an outdoor living/dinning room. You can set a different mood with candles, lanterns, fair light and make your outdoor space a heaven.
Children spend more time outside if their eating space is mainly outside. You can also convert your outside space into an office area if you bring your laptop outside.
Outdoors living spaces are therapeutic as they reduce stress level as we enjoy being outside. Spending time outdoor decrease depression and anxiety, improve our immune system. It is a real mood booster to take time to slow down outside.
An outdoor space coupled with a lovely garden makes us want to stay outside longer and appreciate our surroundings. It brings us together as we take time to slow down instead of being in front of the TV and we communicate more.
