As the weather warms up, make sure your outdoor living space is ready for the sunny days ahead. Whether you have a patio, balcony, or entire backyard, create the perfect outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining.
Create an outdoor “room”
If you’re looking to create a space to socialize and spend time in, opt for outdoor sectionals to create a second “living” area. For entertaining, design your space with gathering in mind by placing an outdoor dining table with a dining bench in the space. If your outdoor area is large enough, play around with dividing it into separate “rooms”, much like you would inside your home.
Set your focal point
Having a focal point of your outdoor space keeps things organized and intentions clear. For a cozy and socializing area, we recommend utilizing a fire pit that your friends and loved ones can gather around on those warm summer nights. Circle lounge chairs around, and don’t forget the side tables! If you have a beautiful view of natural landscapes, like a beach or forest, take advantage of your surroundings by lining up Adirondack chairs or placing an outdoor sofa that overlook the scenery.
Don’t forget the color
Don’t forget to add some fun to your outdoor furniture set up with pops of color! Utilize brightly patterned outdoor cushions or go colorful with your furniture choice. Adirondack chairs and rockers are available in a wide array of colors, making them a great way to add that pop you’re looking for.
Set up a bar for entertaining
If you love hosting, set up an outdoor bar for an effortless way to entertain your guests. Simply use a side table and pair with a serving tray for a versatile solution. Or expand your kitchen outside by setting up a permanent bar in your outdoor space with barstools and a counter table.
Stay cozy with the right lighting
For those nice summer nights, harsh patio lights can seem too bright. Instead, wrap weatherproof string lights around trellises for a cozy, warm glow. Lanterns are also a great solution for creating a relaxing atmosphere, and add interesting texture to your outdoor setting. Layer your lighting choices by also including candles around your outdoor space.
