When it comes to home renovation trends, nothing quite compares with the move of so many towards outdoor living.

Custom outdoor living additions account for the majority of the new projects and inquiries coming to Duane Johns, co-owner of Charlotte based Advanced Renovations. “Outdoor living spaces allow homeowners to escape the daily grind, and encourage families to enjoy time together, outside,” says Johns.

Putting an outdoor living addition onto your home can take more time than many home updates due to the complexities of working with Mother Nature. The ideal outdoor living space flows from inside to out and is an extension of the home. However, things like amount of space, topography, existing landscape, average weather conditions, and even the way the water pools or drains in the yard need to be addressed.

Outdoor living can include everything from a screened porch or patio to a full scale, multi-level, and multi-function design including a full outdoor kitchen, fireplace, lighting and a pool. “We have seen a significant increase in demand,” says Johns, “and the options are nearly limitless.”

    With our beautiful weather coming up…(I love Fall in the Carolinas), it is a MUST to have a delightful outdoor space like the ones posted above.

    Amy, I totally agree with you. Fall in the Carolinas – There is no place that I’d rather be this time of year. A beautiful outdoor space is a must.
