How to Transform Your Outdoor Space in Kansas City

Summer is flying by, but there is still plenty of time to get outside and enjoy your home’s outdoor space with the family. In fact, you can transform that bland patch of grass into an entirely new space for everyone to enjoy – both this summer and for years to come – by completing a few projects.

Get inspired and upgrade your outdoor space in Kansas City this summer with these three ideas:

Build a Pergola or Arbor
Nothing can make an outdoor area feel like an entirely new space quite like a pergola or arbor. By building one of these decorative structures with trending cedar beams, you can bring beauty, functionality, and some much-desired shade to your home’s yard.

Replace Your Deck
The focal point of any backyard is a deck, so make yours the best it can be by replacing your old one with a refreshed structure. Choose from stunning styles like those offered by Deckorators® or Trex® for a deck that not only looks great, but will also stay in peak condition for years to come.

Incorporate Outdoor Lighting
Just because the sun sets doesn’t mean you should have to go inside and stop experiencing all your outdoor space has to offer. Add hours to your outdoor home experience by installing new lighting. Lighting options like under rail lights on your new deck or even solar powered lights along your front patio will help add to the safety and atmosphere of your outdoor property, while giving you increased hours of usability.

Whether you opt to build a new screened in deck or simply add a few more lights around your backyard kitchen, completing outdoor projects this summer will help bring new life to your Kansas City home. To learn more or to get started on your transformation, visit McCray Lumber and Millwork today.
