Embrace the Outdoors
Creating an outdoor living area can be a transformative experience. Beyond mere aesthetics, outdoor living spaces offer a multitude of benefits and a unique opportunity to enhance your lifestyle. An indoor-outdoor living connection can make your home feel more spacious and filled with light, but most importantly, it can improve your quality of life.
In our fast-paced, technology-driven world, many of us find solace in connecting with nature and embracing the great outdoors. Creating an outdoor living area can be a transformative experience. Beyond mere aesthetics, outdoor living spaces offer a multitude of benefits and a unique opportunity to enhance your lifestyle. At Van Cleave Construction, Remodeling, and Design we know the value of connecting the indoors with the beauty of the outdoors. Enjoying your own slice of the Midwest can be enhanced in so many ways. Here are a few ways we can help you:
A composite deck is a terrific way to expand your living area. It provides an additional space for relaxation, entertainment, and even work. Composite decks with aluminum handrails are beautiful and require very little maintenance. They are a simple and relaxed way to create an outdoor room. A deck can be as simple, or as deluxe as you want. This customization allows you to extend your personality and create a space that truly feels like an extension of your home.
Covered Porches and Patios
A Covered Porch or Patio takes a deck or patio to the next level. This easily accessible area is sheltered from the elements and makes a great spot for alfresco dining, a second living space, or an entertainment hub. There are a few ways to accomplish this. Extending your roofline to cover a porch is a very custom and beautiful way to shelter an outdoor area. Another option is an attractive patio cover. Patio covers come in colors to suit your home and are very cost effective.
Screen Rooms offer the benefit of fresh air without the fear of a winged invasion. Instead of feeling confirmed to the four walls of your home, you can step outside and immerse yourself in the natural beauty surrounding you. Being in nature has proven to reduce stress levels, boost mood, and improve overall mental and physical health. A screen room provides a convenient way to experience these benefits regularly without the bother of insects.
Sometimes the best way to connect the outdoors with the indoors is a better door between them. Patio doors offer smooth transitions to the outdoors, while efficiently keeping the heating and cooling inside. Van Cleave offers custom doors with many finishes, configurations, and glass options.
Speaking of glass options, larger custom windows can offer the perfect frame for the view you want to highlight. Better views of the outdoors give a home the feeling of more space. Natural light in a home has amazing benefits for general wellbeing, such as increased Vitamin D.
An indoor-outdoor living connection can make your home feel more spacious and filled with light, but most importantly, it can improve your quality of life. Entertaining your friends, gathering with your family, enjoying a beautiful sunset, and watching the rain from the comfort of your outdoor space fosters a connection with nature and encourages social interaction. Expanded outdoor living areas are not only perfect for everyday enjoyment, but also great investments for the home. So, whether you have a sprawling acreage or a small yard, consider embracing the outdoors and creating your own haven of relaxation and enjoyment. Van Cleave Construction, Remodeling, and Design is here to help.
