Summer is full of long days with lots of time spent outside. It is a great opportunity to expand your home life by designing an outdoor living space.
Here’s how you can create a custom outdoor design that fits your lifestyle!
Even in the smallest of spaces, it is a good idea to define an area outside for gathering. There are many ways to define your outdoor living space.
Stonework and a raised wooden patio deck are common ways to define this outdoor space. You can also use your landscaping to create a boundary around your sitting area.
A helpful tip is to consider the most shady and private areas in your yard to define a living space. Other considerations might include a firepit or other features outside, like a pool.
If there are outdoor amenities, use them to ground your outdoor space and let them guide your layout designs. Pools and firepits are not only places you’re most likely to hang around and use for entertainment, but they are also often beautiful elements to base designs.
Creating an outdoor living space often includes some landscaping decisions. The degree of landscaping can depend on your personal preferences on yard maintenance and work. Simple landscaping that is easy to care for can be just as beautiful as a large garden. The landscaping design is a matter of personal style combined with garden conditions.
Some landscaping styles work better for particular regions than others. If you have a fairly shady yard, compared to one that has long hours of direct sunlight, that can also influence the type of landscaping.
Once your outdoor space is defined and landscaping styles come into play, you can add outdoor furniture to create a liveable area in your yard.
Creating your custom outdoor space can be an extension of your home. For some, outdoor dining is the ideal way to spend a summer weekend. Wood oven pizza and lots of seats at the table will help make delicious memories with friends and family. For others, an outdoor living space is all about relaxing and unwinding. Outdoor sectionals are the perfect way to get comfortable outside. Large outdoor sectional sofas are also ideal for entertaining friends. They provide lots of comfortable seating for everything to gather, day and night!
Once the layout, landscaping, and furniture are set, it is time to add your unique touch with decor pieces. Choosing a theme that compliments your indoor design will feel like a true living space extension.
