5 reasons for an outdoor living room

Nobody likes to stay insdie all of the time. So why not take advantage of every inch of space and create a stylish living area to enjoy year round? Now is the perfect time to add the ideal oasis for entertaining and chilling. Here's why:

  1. 1. The options are endless - Today's outdoor living rooms go way beyond a simple patio and grill. Cutting-edge flat screen televisions and audio systems now take center stage, along with beautiful fireplaces and fire pits, stunning walls, fans, screens and gorgeous all-weather furnishings.

  2. 2. A second kitchen is a joy - Delight every guest at your next football game. Outdoor kitchens have become a sensation, boasting culinary features like pizza ovens, cook's stations, sinks, counters, refrigerators and storage space. Best of all, these bonus kitchens are a godsend when you host large holiday parties and need an extra place to keep things warm.

  3. 3. They're suprisingly practical - Outdoor retreats expand you home's square footage without the expense of an addition. Likewise, gorgeous finishes don't have to break the bank. Hardscaping products and thin-cut stone offer the natural beauty of stone at a fraction of the price - and they're available in a rich variety of textures and shapes that complement any taste.

  4. 4. You'll love it - Bring out your inner Martha Stewart and design a space that is uniquely you. Have fun with pops of color and patterns, trendy cusions and pillows, planters and outdoor rugs. Finish it off with spectacular outdoor lighting that keeps the party rolling long into the night.

  5. 5. It's worth it - An outdoor living room greatly enhances the beauty and value of your property. In fact, a recent National Association of Realtors study reports that over half of surveyed buyers would pay a premium for a home with an outdoor living space.
