Get started with these simple tips that will help you make the most of your outdoor living space and prepare it for outdoor fun you can enjoy all year long.

Bring the Inside, Outside

Seating is the best thing about your indoor spaces. You have a favorite spot to relax and a gathering place for friends and family. Keep that same influence and let it flow into your outside living space, especially when you consider the type of seating you would like to have on your patio, deck, or balcony. Here a few outdoor living space ideas by HGTV we love!

No Pergola, No Problem

Shade from the Summer sun is always a good idea for daytime entertaining, but don’t worry if your home doesn’t have a pergola or a built-in covered patio. The solution can be as simple as incorporating a large and stylish umbrella.

Light Up the Night

Be prepared for evening gatherings by choosing outdoor lights that match your style and sets an ambiance, such as string lighting and landscape lighting. You can also incorporate romantic lighting, such as candles and torches for that soft, dramatic glow.

Keep it Warm All Year Long

Enjoy your outdoor sanctuary on those cold days and nights by adding a little warmth. Fireplaces are at the top of our list as a favorite addition to exterior living spaces. Other options that create a warm and cozy atmosphere are fire pits and space heaters.
