Outdoor living trends for Denver homes


May 29, 2019

Outdoor living spaces are not only the trendiest home improvement projects of 2019, but they are extraordinarily functional and the perfect way to entertain all of your guests. There are a few unique trends that you can incorporate into your Denver landscape, particularly when it comes to outdoor living spaces. Take a look at our five outdoor living trends for 2019, and how you can easily incorporate them into your landscaping. 

Flat Screens
Gathering around the TV to watch the biggest sporting event of the season, or simply using the TV as background noise is one of the easiest ways to connect with family members and friends. Incorporating flat screens into your outdoor living space will be a great way to take advantage of the outdoors, while elevating your outdoor living space, increasing your home value and connecting with friends and family on a new level.

Outdoor Kitchens
Perhaps our favorite outdoor living trend is the incorporation of a near fully-functional kitchen in an outdoor living space. This includes sinks, countertops, cookstops, and even small appliances. Outdoor kitchens make preparing and serving meals a breeze, and provide another unique and engaging way to upgrade your home’s value. 

Fireplaces and Firepits
Ahh...nothing is better than a Colorado bonfire! Fire pits are commonplace in several Colorado home backyards, but have you thought of an outdoor fireplace? Outdoor fireplaces upgrade the traditional fire pit and provide a backdrop for TVs, decoration, and a central place for gathering outside of the home. 

Outdoor Bar 
An outdoor bar takes the concept of an outdoor kitchen but focuses it more on adult beverages. Outdoor bars incorporate a refrigeration unit, plenty of shelving for liquor, and a large sink for ice and keeping large quantities of beer cold. Outdoor bars are a way to provide easy access to adult beverages for your party guests - or simply enjoy a drink on the patio with your family after a long day’s work.

Structures
We love a good outdoor living space, but incorporating additional structures are key to increasing the aesthetic value of an outdoor living space and increasing your home value. Additional structures might include pergolas, columns, fountains, backdrops, or screens that help provide privacy and additional visual variety. Structures can also provide stabilization and support for landscaping plants - adding beauty and variety to your garden and landscaping as well.
