3 Tips for the Perfect Outdoor Living Space

Posted in Stories, Styles, Rooms

We all love patio season! It's that special time of year made for enjoying Vitamin D and dinners al fresco especially after the challenging winter we have all endured. A beautiful outdoor living space adds value to your home. The right furniture and accessories can bring beauty and purpose to your patio living space. Whether you want to entertain guests or simply enjoy the outdoors in comfort, these tips can help transform your patio into an outdoor oasis.

Personalize with Fun Accessories

One of the best ways to make a space feel more personalized and styled is to avoid “matchy-matchy” vibes. You can mix and match sets that appeal to you, but it can take time to find pieces that complement one another in palette and texture.

You can personalize your patio with outdoor lighting, wall décor, and outdoor rugs and even pillows and throws. Add an awning or a patio umbrella to protect your outdoor living space from the elements. Investing in a good patio umbrella will not only offer shade, but can add height and act as a decor element. You can go for a classic solid or embrace a cabana-inspired stripe for a playful feel.

Patio Layout and Traffic

Establish Traffic Flow

Your patio will feel comfortable and open if you establish traffic patterns. Make sure there’s enough clearance around each piece of patio furniture so the area doesn’t feel cluttered. Arrange your furniture to create zones for conversation and dining. If space is at a premium, let your patio furniture do double duty. Benches and ottomans can provide storage space as well as seating. You can also consider shelving and storage options if you have the space.

Don't Trust Your Outdoor Space To Just Anyone

At Home Furniture, we pride ourselves on carrying pieces that will match up with anyone's unique sense of style. Our team of experts will help you find that perfect piece to bring your outdoor living space to the next level.

Seating is All About Purpose

You can select a variety of outdoor seating options. With deep seating furniture, you’ll enjoy the outdoors in comfort. For meal entertaining, a patio dining set will provide the perfect setting to bring people together.

If you prefer to relax in the sun, chaise lounge seating might be your preference. Start with this question: how do you want to use your patio? Your vision of how you want to engage with the space should guide your choice of patio furniture.
