Patios, porches, decks, terraces and verandas are lovely things. Too often we just toss out a few chairs, and perhaps a table and call it a day. These beautiful spaces are often neglected and not utilized to their fullest potential. When the weather starts to get warmer, we absolutely should take advantage and turn this outdoor space into an additional, usable living space. I will walk you through not only on how to maximize the use of your space, but also how you can make it a spectacular one.
How do you plan on using your outdoor space? Will it be mostly for relaxation or will you be entertaining a good deal? If possible plan for separate dining and sitting areas. This will create a flow for when guests gather outside. If youre entertaining a small group of people you can use the sitting and dining areas separately or together. You want your sitting area to be as relaxing as possible. You want your guests to enjoy some wine and hors doeuvres before moving over to the dining area to be seated for dinner, then afterwards, everyone may wander over to the sitting area again.
A comfortable space is an inviting space, and an inviting space is a well used space. Decorate for your lifestyle but decorate for comfort. Think about the space as it will be used when you are not entertaining. Your outdoor area can and should be multi-functional. It should suit a quiet afternoon with a book just as well as an intimate dinner party. Make sure your seating is comfortable. You neednt spend a lot of money and buy expensive outdoor furniture. Sometimes, all it takes is the addition of a few throw pillows that can be purchased at a discount home furnishings store or online. Consignment stores and Goodwill are great places to find furniture for your outdoor space. Give your newly acquired furniture a new, fresh and updated look with a new coat of paint. Do be sure to use an outdoor paint, though.
