Many families are choosing to spend most of their time outside, which is why we believe that it is important to bring the inside out. We know that you will be more comfortable in your outdoor living space if you create it just like you would a room inside your home.
Here are 5 ideas for remodeling your outdoor living space to improve functionality and style:
Create a Designated Space
A pergola will allow you to create a specific outdoor space, or one of many outdoor rooms in your backyard. The pergola will block the hottest rays of the day, while offering shade and comfort. We recommend hanging flowing curtains on the sides of your pergola that you can open and close whenever you wish.
Create a Natural Wall
You may not want your neighbors or people from the street to see you every time you step out into your private oasis, and that is where a natural wall can be helpful. You can use shrubs to create this wall or you can use lattice that you fill with colorful flowers or vines. Those flowers and vines will add a pop of color as well as an amazing focal point.
Add an Awning
No one likes to get wet when they are sitting in their outdoor space, so you may want to add an awning. Many awnings can be retracted for all those beautiful days, but then opened when the rain begins, or the sun gets too hot.
Add Built in Seating
Built in seating will add both functionality and style to your outdoor space. The seats will allow you to entertain easily without the need of dragging out extra furniture or rearranging the furniture that you already have. We recommend adding storage to this built in seating, so that you have a place to store all the items that you use when you are outside.
Add the Little Touches
An area rug, a few throw pillows, and a blanket or two can make your outdoor living space more comfortable and cozy. You can place these items around this space, and even store a few inside your storage spaces in your built-in seating. We do recommend that you choose materials that are for use outside, so that the elements do not destroy them quickly.
