Outdoor RoomsWednesday, February 15, 2012
I've been laying low and enjoying time with friends and family before I start my new job tomorrow! I couldn't be more thrilled! Up until this cold front blew in I've been spending a lot of time outside in the beautiful FL sunshine [including a picnic by myself]:
People love being outdoors. Do you know how much a property's value goes up just because it has a patio or outdoor room? LOTS. People want that outdoor space whether you have a huge back yard to work with or a 6' by 6' concrete slab attached to your NYC apartment.
Most of the pictures of outdoor rooms that we look at online are dream homes, designed by professionals and decorated by the best, a.k.a. everything I like on Pinterest.
However, I found two pictures I really liked that I thought seemed pretty doable for most people...and you don't need acres of yard or a panoramic ocean view to do it.
