4 Tips for the Perfect Outdoor Room
It’s the time of year when we start thinking about moving outdoors again! Whether you have a porch, terrace, deck or patio, there are a few simple tips that will make your al fresco living much more comfortable. Let’s take a look…
1. Conversation Areas
Just like in the best living rooms and family rooms, you need seating that’s welcoming and positioned for great conversation. Your guests will feel right at home in the great outdoors with comfy seats and a place to put their feet up!
2. Defined Dining
Define areas for eating al fresco. There’s nothing better (or more romantic) than a meal under the stars! Having an outdoor dining set makes meal time easier and more comfortable. And it doesn’t hurt to have even more seating when you throw your next BBQ or outdoor party.
3. Indoor Conveniences
Don’t forget that any rules for making an indoor room more comfortable work well outside, too! Offer pillows, throws, and outdoor rugs for comfort and to add great color. And don’t forget outdoor lighting and sound systems to keep people happy even after sundown.
4. An Element of Surprise
We love to include something unique and special in every room we design, and that includes outdoor spaces! For this deck project, we found an amazing table with an ice trough built right into it – perfect for serving ice cold drinks on a hot summer day. Other unique ideas include outdoor art, a fun “string chair” like those above, a TV made to withstand the weather, or an incredible water feature. Show your personality!
Use these ideas to create your own backyard oasis – and have a great summer this year!
