We’ve all gone through a LOT of changes to lifestyle and routine in 2020, but perhaps none so much as parents of school-aged children. With most schools being closed for the foreseeable future, you are “stuck” at home, trying to come up with endless activities to keep them entertained. Add this to your normal responsibilities and duties as a parent, spouse, and not to mention employee or business owner, and you’ve got your hands full!
Perhaps the bright spot in all of this is the chance to spend more time together as a family. And where would be lovelier than to enjoy a backyard oasis with your kids and loved ones? If you haven’t built out the backyard of your dreams just yet, there couldn’t be a better time!
Benefits of an Outdoor Living Space
Imagine how much energy could be burned off in a beautiful swimming pool, how much relaxation could occur from a spa in your own backyard, and how many quality memories could be created at an outdoor kitchen!
Enhanced enjoyment of your increased family time is just around the corner, in your new, idyllic backyard. It even has mental and physical benefits for your children, backed by science:
- Build muscle tone
- Develop survival skills
- Enhance coordination
- Learn water safety
- Tone muscles
- Improves posture & balance
- Keeps heart and lungs healthy
- Increases stamina
And it’s just downright fun!
If you expand your outdoor living space with an outdoor kitchen to match, it’ll be your own personal paradise. Not only will it increase the value of your home, but it provides a perfect entertainment space for when things are closer to normal.
And, believe it or not, using an outdoor kitchen can actually save on utility costs. If you choose to grill outside instead of baking, sautéing, or broiling inside, you aren’t using the electricity on the oven or stovetop. And beyond that, you aren’t heating up the indoor kitchen, which causes the house to warm up and the AC to go into overdrive to try to keep you cool while you’re preparing the family meal.
There are dozens of benefits, and practically endless ways to enjoy an outdoor oasis, whether you opt to include a pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, or a lovely patio setup.
