Creative Ideas for Your Outdoor Living Space

Posted January 31, 2017

Some of us take pride in our homes, investing hours and hours rearranging and remodeling the interior. However, it can be equally refreshing to step out of the confines of the inside to spend some time outside. Especially during the spring, summer and fall months, it is enjoyable to utilize your outdoor living area. When the weather is favorable, you do not want to miss out on a nice day outside.

 

How can you spruce up your outdoor living space, you ask? Let us give your some suggestions:

 

Choose bold colors.

If you are used to having earth tones for your furniture, then this is the time to go for bolder colors. Outside, earth tones will shrink and blend in with the surroundings and you do not want that to happen. Black tends to be stylish especially when inside the home but if you put it outside, it will become very hot in direct sunlight. If you want to complement the browns and greens of the outdoors, you can go for brightly colored furniture and accessories. You might also want to swap out your faded cushions for bold and colorful ones.

 

It’s all about lighting.

The holidays are not the only time to string up some lights in your outdoor living areas. During the warmer months, spending time outdoors is not limited to the daylight hours – you might want to set the mood with some dramatic outdoor lighting. Effective lighting also makes your outdoor living space safer, preventing people from tripping in the dark. At the same time, you are also transforming your deck or yard into an inviting place to spend time after the sun goes down.

 

Prioritize the outdoor kitchen.

The kitchen is said to be the heart of any home, so it follows that an outdoor kitchen would be where the action is in any given outdoor living space. Having a second kitchen will not just save you time making trips back and forth between the grill and indoor stove, but it also creates a great space for entertaining. Another key ingredient to any outdoor kitchen is seating – check out our available dining sets.

 

Add warmth with a fire pit.

Being able to control fire is one of the things that define humans and separate us from other species. Adding an element of fire can transform any ordinary space into an inviting and warm one. Do not forget to add this special feature to make your guests more comfortable.
