THE IMPORTANCE OF OUTDOOR LIVING
Adding outdoor living spaces to your home are essential to enjoying everyday life and making the most of what you have. We live in one of the most beautiful places on earth – Vancouver Island – and learning to enjoy all it has to offer is one of the great joys of this life.
Many new built homes nowadays are accompanied by gorgeous lawns and lush outdoor spaces, but they’re not really “living spaces”. Many people spend their time creating beautiful interiors and home office spaces (since we’ve all been working from home the last two years, how can you not?) but then, often forget about the importance of outdoor spaces.
Not only do outdoor living spaces increase home value, but they also have many wellness benefits.
Having a functional, relaxing outdoor space will encourage and provide an opportunity to spend more time outside, doing things you love, like perhaps reading a good book or simply listening to the birds in the trees in springtime. Even if you’ve purchased your forever home, with outdoor living spaces added, your home’s value will stand up to the test of time, and you will get to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful outdoor living space in the meantime.
Spending time outdoors has been proven to ameliorate both mental and physical health. It is also known that people who spend more time outdoors are more likely to be happier and healthier throughout their lives. A great way to start is by planting a small garden or flower bed. This will give you a reason to spend some time outdoors while tending to the starts. Or add a patio or outdoor kitchen area for the spring/summer months. All of the extra space will make your home feel larger and more useful overall.
At Live Edge Design, we prioritize the health and wellbeing of our customers, so creating outdoor living spaces is very important to us in both our professional and personal lives. In order to kick-start this desire, we created the Mimosa table and chairs. With a weather-resistant aluminum umbrella (complete with the ability to raise and lower on its own with the help of a wireless remote control!) the Mimosa table is perfect for patio season. It’s a great way to spend your time outside, with the bonus of never needing to move your patio furniture into the back shed for the winter.
The chairs come with heated cushions that are perfect for the cooler spring or fall nights to extend your outdoor living time. Email [email protected] to order yourself a Mimosa table and chairs today!
