The way you style your home can have just as much influence on its retail value as structure, plumbing, and appliances. The face your home shows the neighborhood will be the first thing visitors and home buyers notice, and having creative and immaculate landscaping will definitely increase your home’s value.

However, beyond landscaping, luxury amenities such as fences, terraces, and gazebos can give your home an extra burst of flair that makes all the difference. Gazebos specifically create more space in your yard and provide comfortable outdoor seating that can be seen as more square footage by your realtor and as a spare room or luxury patio by potential buyers.

If you’re looking for creative ways to bring up the value of your home, consider these gazebo ideas for your home.

Add a Gazebo to Your Garden

Trees, native plants, and even fresh fruits and veggies are all great ways to create unique landscaping around your home in order to make it more welcoming for guests and visitors, and adding a gazebo to this garden will increase the value of your home by providing home buyers with more space to enjoy the yard and the garden.

According to the Associated Landscape Contractors of America, you can count on a 10-14% increase in your home’s value when you build a gazebo in your garden. The ambiance created by the garden gazebo will warmly welcome guests right through the front door with little hesitation, meaning faster home sales and less vacancies.

For extra pizazz, paint your garden gazebo a gorgeous spring color, like pastel green or blue. This will help keep it warm and inviting during the cold winter months.

Creating a Walkway to Your Gazebo

A gazebo does not necessarily have to be built in a garden. You can build the gazebo first and landscape around it with beautiful flowers, terraced vegetation, and inviting walkways that lead right to your front door. In fact, you’ll want a walkway that leads to both the front of your home and the front of your gazebo so guests can explore all the amenities of your living space.

You can choose from cement walkways or splurge on stone walkways, but your best bet for a gazebo is to go for a wooden plank walkway. Especially if your gazebo is made from cedar or cypress, creating a walkway made of the same wood will not only look aesthetically gorgeous but will also tie together your property and make the gazebo look like an extension of your home. Wood is also easy to maintain, needing only staining and sealing once a year, just as you would a wooden deck.  

Beautiful Gazebos for All Seasons

In order for a gazebo to increase the value of your home, you want to be able to use it all throughout the year. Aside from the winter months, your gazebo should be available for lounging and entertaining, especially during the summer months. Choosing to build your gazebo with wood will give you not only a sturdy structure to withstand the weather, it will also be easy to maintain as long as you remember to stain and seal it before winter starts.

Conclusion

Gazebos can bring up the value of your home by adding on to the amazing landscaping and outdoor aesthetic your home already has. Choosing where to build your gazebo can be tricky, but gardens and backyards are always a great bet, especially if you build an inviting walkway that leads right up to it.

Remember: when building your gazebo and installing your creative landscaping vision, you will want to make sure you are in line with your neighborhood’s association requirements. Failing to meet their rules can result in negative appraisals and can actually decrease the value of your home, so double check with landscapers and association leaders so you can get the most out of your new gazebo.
