Backyard renovations can transform outdoor spaces into extensions of any home. While this sounds exciting, these upgrades typically require careful thought and preparation before committing to them. That being said, what are some of the key factors that you, as a homeowner, should consider prior to undertaking backyard renovations?
- Space. Space constraints are arguably the most important consideration when undertaking backyard renovations. More often than not, homeowners plan too big for small spaces. Knowing your backyard’s dimensions goes a long way in ensuring you design appropriately sized features that won’t overwhelm your backyard.
- Amenities. Some backyard renovations, like custom outdoor kitchens, may require you to extend indoor amenities (water, electricity, et cetera) to the outdoors. This may play a major role in determining the location of some of these renovations or whether they are manageable without implementing major upgrades.
- Current Functionality. Taking stock of your backyard’s current utility before upgrading it is extremely important. It may turn out that your wooden deck is just a little worn out and needs some minor improvements. Or maybe you have no dedicated relaxation area, and your backyard deserves a major overhaul. Regardless of your assessment, they will train your focus toward specific backyard renovation needs.
- Budget. Another important thing to note is that backyard renovations can vary in cost. Depending on the labor, materials, permits, and other expenses, a renovation project can cost anywhere between a few hundred to thousands of dollars. However, as long as you know the potential costs and stay within your budget, you’ll easily handle the renovation.
