As we continue to live and plan for the future, home improvement trends are constantly evolving. Looking ahead through 2023, one of the biggest design trends is blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living. While there are many ideas to explore when it comes to transforming your home, selecting practical changes that work with your lifestyle, budget, and space will provide greater value in the long run.

Three key trends that will add value to your home include: creating an outdoor workspace, upgrading your inground swimming pool, and embracing technology. Keeping these ideas in mind can help you find a better balance between design flair and practical solutions for improving the functionality of your home. Here are some of the top trends we predict to continue in outdoor living this year:

  • Outdoor Home Offices

While trends are often sought after, it’s crucial to ensure that your new addition blends seamlessly with the architectural style of your home. In the past, it’s been common that the square footage, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and interior features play a significant role in determining the value of a property. However, in today’s times where working from home has become commonplace the outdoor space has gained even more significance.

Many outdoor contractors in Center Valley, Pennsylvania may promote their ability to create unique, eye-catching designs. While this may seem tempting, it’s essential to consider the long-term impact on your property’s value. A mismatched or out-of-place addition could detract from the overall aesthetic appeal and potentially decrease your home’s value. To avoid this, it is crucial to partner with a professional who prioritizes architectural connection. Take the time to review their portfolio and previous projects. Look for evidence of their ability to create visually appealing and architecturally connected outdoor spaces. Connect with current and previous clients. Remember, while it’s essential to have a unique and appealing outdoor space, it should also contribute positively to your home’s overall value. Choosing the right partner and focusing on architectural connections can create a functional and visually pleasing outdoor living space that enhances your home’s worth.

  • Upgrade your inground swimming pool

When it comes to swimming pool upgrades there is a wide range of options available, from minimalist and modern to more traditional and elaborate. The key to a successful inground swimming pool renovation is to ensure that it complements the surrounding area rather than competing with it. Unfortunately, many homeowners settle for their existing inground swimming pool because they are not aware of the possibilities of a pool renovation or underestimate the transformative potential of renovating their current pool.

Our team of experienced designers can assist you in renovating your existing inground swimming pool and incorporating new custom-designed landscaping, soft accent lighting, an outdoor kitchen, or even an outdoor living room with a custom fireplace. Our design-first process helps you visualize exactly how your new inground swimming pool and outdoor living space will look before you commit to the construction process. This process allows you to make any necessary modifications to features or finishes before making any purchases, saving you time & money and ensuring that you make the most of your budget before construction begins.

  • Upgrading your outdoor entertainment options

Thanks to technology, many of our favorite interior features can now be safely and efficiently enjoyed outdoors. Unfortunately, most deck or patio contractors will neglect to help you properly plan and install a robust wifi system for your new space. So, make sure to consider how you will install wifi systems in your new outdoor spaces, as this will require special considerations such as waterproofing, UV protection, and extra range to reach the furthest corners of your yard.

To create a functional outdoor living room, you will need to make sure that you select the right equipment and properly plan your sound and wireless connections. More specifically, you need to ensure everything you select is outdoor rated with the right warranties in place. When you partner with MasterPLAN, your custom 3D design video will let you see exactly how your new space will look and feel and how you will use every feature of your new space so that we can help you locate and plan the right connections and entertainment options. This design-first approach will help you plan appropriately for the best outdoor television, speakers, and wireless connection for working, relaxing, or entertaining in your new space.
