Creating the Perfect Outdoor Living Space
Summer has officially arrived and many of us are looking forward to spending more time outdoors. Whether you plan to spend your summer reading on your patio, or grilling up delicious meals, it’s important to make sure you create an atmosphere that promotes relaxation and tranquility.
It doesn’t have to take a lot of effort to create the perfect outdoor living space. You don’t even need a lot of room to work with. You just need to maximize the space you have, no matter how big or small.
Create an Indoor-Outdoor Connection
Homeowners can create a comfortable and stylish outdoor living space by adding many of the same luxuries they enjoy in their living room. To create this look, select outdoor furniture with plush cushions and stylish indoor-outdoor lighting fixtures. Homeowners can also add weatherproof artwork, storage units, an overhead fan, bright colored pillows, and gorgeous linens to create a space that’s both stylish and comfortable.
Focus on Color
A little color can make a big difference to the look and feel of an outdoor living space. Consider adding a large, brightly colored patio umbrella to your outdoor area. In addition to providing much needed shade, umbrellas provide an excellent vertical element to patio spaces. You can further enhance this look by matching a boldly colored umbrella with plush chair cushions.
Add Big, Bold Houseplants
Indoor plants grow quickly outdoors, making them perfect for creating a wonderful display and providing shade and privacy. Indoor plants that thrive outside include Fiddle Leaf Ficus, Peace Lily, Philodendron, Croton, Lady Palm, and Sansevieria.
Fix Up Your Old Furniture
A little spray paint can transform old patio furniture, bringing color and excitement to your outdoor living space. You can find a variety of colors and finishes at your local hardware store. Just make sure the color you choose doesn’t clash with the exterior of your home. Using a variety of colors creates or a truly unique look.
Divide the Space
Dividers add privacy and make it possible to create multiple “rooms”. This can work even with relatively small spaces. Strategically place fences, structures, or plants to create walls separating eating spaces, garden areas, and spaces meant for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Let Nature Be Your Guide
Create a gorgeous and inviting open airspace by surrounding it in colorful, fragrant, and cooling plants. Complete this look with wicker furniture and simple patio pavers.
