As you already know, the world has changed substantially since 2020. While we were hopeful that we would get back to “normal,” it soon became evident that we wouldn’t be returning to the status quo. Therefore, we had to adjust our lives, including our vacations. Now, backyards are the new vacation destination. Many individuals are turning to their backyards for staycations due to social distancing, financing, and curb appeal.
Backyards are the New Vacation Destination
While the world is slowly reopening, people are not free to travel as they once were due to COVID-19 restrictions on social distancing and travel. Additionally, many are choosing not to travel due to health concerns, job restrictions, or various other reasons.
So how does one go on vacation? Today, people are turning to their backyards as their new vacation destination. On account of this, many homeowners have taken the initiative to improve their backyard space by adding new elements such as pools, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, play areas, and more. They can now have all the features of a vacation without having to leave the safety of their homes.
Vacations have always been expensive, and it is only becoming more so. Between transportation, accommodation, food, and entertainment, even a weekend vacation can cost quite a chunk of change. With inflation rising faster than usual, materials costing more, and the workforce being smaller, everything is more expensive than before.
Instead of spending hard-earned money on vacation, many homeowners choose to re-invest that money into their homes by creating a fantastic outdoor space they can enjoy as much as a vacation, except this one they get to keep!
Speaking of getting to keep your vacation right in your backyard, investing in your home significantly adds to your curb appeal. When COVID-19 hit, it was detrimental to many people worldwide, especially those that had little savings. With this shock came a change in mindset, where people are more concerned with investing for the future rather than spending their money on vacations. By investing in and creating a beautiful, functional, and fun backyard, homeowners get both. They can enjoy the backyard as a vacation and receive the long-term benefits of investing in their curb appeal.
