Whether you’re remodelling or building a new outdoor living space, it is important to make it functional and comfortable. It should be more than just a space with table, chairs and a few potted plants. Your outdoor living area should be inviting and serve as an ideal spot for entertaining guests and hanging out with friends and family.
Here’s how you can enjoy and get the most out of your outdoor living space:
Connect Indoor and Outdoor Living Areas
A deck or a patio that connects a living space to the outdoors can help extend a room and make the area functional throughout the year. It can be connected to a family room to provide an additional space for receiving guests and friends. You can also integrate it with your kitchen and enjoy the benefit of bringing and serving foods or drinks easily.
Create an Extra Cosy Living Space
Outdoor living areas can be as comfortable as your indoor living room. It is easy to accomplish this with comfortable outdoor furniture like sofas or lounges. Hanging and lounging chairs can give the area a stunning statement, while also providing you a place for rest and relaxation. It is also advisable to add good lighting, additional cushions in bright colours, or even an outdoor fireplace.
Make it as Spacious as Possible
If space permits, it is a good idea to make the outdoor living area as spacious as possible. This is especially true if you want it to function as an alfresco kitchen, a dining area, or a living room. This will give you enough space for the outdoor furniture and the people who will be occupying the area. With a large deck or a patio, you can also have a place for hosting family gatherings and parties.
Add Drama with the Right Lighting
When the weather is favourable, spending time outdoors after the sun goes down becomes possible. This is why you should invest in effective lighting to make the area safer, while also setting the right mood. Dramatic outdoor lighting can give the space a unique vibe, as well as transform a simple deck into a cosy and a welcoming area. You can use electric bulbs, lanterns, or torches.
Choose Quality Outdoor Furniture
When buying outdoor furniture, make sure that they are durable and of good quality. Note that there is no point in buying cheap pieces that cannot withstand a lot of tear and wear. Look for the highest quality of outdoor furniture that you can comfortably afford. It is also advisable that you clean them regularly or purchase furniture covers, so you can protect them when not in use.
