Outdoor Living Space is “More Valuable Than Ever Before”
March 2, 2021
Volumes of scientific research prove the physical and mental health benefits of spending time in nature. While the COVID-19 pandemic kept the majority of Americans at home last year, the 90 percent of homeowners with outdoor living space were taking greater advantage of their decks, porches, and patios, according to a consumer survey conducted for the International Casual Furnishings Association in January. Ninety percent of Americans agree their outdoor living space is more valuable than ever before, with 78 percent making outside upgrades during COVID-19.
