One of our respondents said, “Outdoor space is essential.” We couldn’t agree more.
According to the TPD #StayAtHomeSurvey:
• 54% of respondents say that they’ve enjoyed using their uncovered outdoor space more than usual while at home over the past few months.
• Covered back porches, patios and decks are hard at work as well.• However, 10% of respondents report they don’t have an outdoor space they can use at home.
• Another interesting takeaway – half of the survey respondents have been enjoying their neighborhoods more than usual and are hitting the sidewalks and trails. This highlights the importance of neighborhood walkability and accessibility.
“The home gym and outdoor garden have become our favorite spaces to unwind.”
“Definitely more time outdoors! I designed our home so that a massive bank of windows in the kitchen overlooks our backyard. It’s 100% a second living space – covered porch with TV and fireplace, patio with dining, pool for leisure and huge grassy yard.”
