“Not only do outdoor rooms increase a home’s value,” notes
Walsh, “they enhance their overall appeal, especially for people
fond of entertaining. My clients are looking for exterior rooms
to function just as the various rooms of their homes do: cooking/
barbecuing, watching TV, quiet spaces, maybe with a water
feature, for relaxing and reading, fire pit areas to gather family
and friends for cocktails, dining areas with awnings.”
“It used to be landscaping that added value to a house,” says
Elton. “Today, it’s how the outdoor space is furnished.” He
reveals that customers frequently tell him the reason they
obtained the asking price when selling their home was that the
outdoor furnishings were included. “Outdoor furniture is the
fastest growing of all furniture categories,” he adds.
In fact, analytics and advisory firm Transparency Market
Research anticipates 4. 9 percent growth in the global outdoor
furniture market for the 2017 to 2022 period.
