Ways To Make Your Outdoor Space More Inviting
If you’re not spending a lot of time in your backyard, you’re not taking advantage of some key square footage. That’s an additional area for family time, relaxation, visiting with friends, or just enjoying nature. Give everyone a reason to gravitate there with these ways to make your outdoor space more inviting.
Traditionally, lawn chairs and chaises were rickety, foldable approximations of furniture that you could store during the off-season. But there are endless choices now for more substantial, elegant pieces that will tempt you to linger outdoors for hours with plush comfort. You can optimize your patio with custom furniture—even sectionals—to accommodate the space perfectly. And choosing more modern styles can make your backyard look like a posh spa or resort.
Homeowners are blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors with more greenery inside the house. You can better utilize the natural features of your backyard by incorporating large potted plants on your patio near the seating areas. Continue your interior color schemes with coordinating perennials in the garden. Or try the ultimate trend in lush greenery: a living wall or “vertical garden” of plants that adds life and texture to any space.
Increase Dining Options
If you’ve stopped at a perfunctory dining table with an umbrella, you’re limiting your backyard usage. An outdoor kitchen can extend mealtime as the cook mingles with family or friends. Add a counter where they can pull up a stool. Or install a sociable outdoor bar with high-end patio bar stools that are comfortable enough for everyone to stick around well past happy hour.
Add Indoor Comforts
Make your outdoor space more inviting with amenities usually associated with the indoors. An “outdoor living room” is a way to gather together without squandering beautiful days and nights. Set up a cozy area with a couch and more seating around a small garden, fire pit, or even an outdoor TV. Summer movie nights make great memories. Include interior touches such as rugs, throw pillows, and lighting to make it even homier.
