Take it Outside

Everyone has a favorite place in the house where they “sit”. It’s a place for family and friends to gather or a quiet nook where one can relax and put up their feet after a long day. Take that same concept and let it spill over into your outdoor living space, especially when buying seating for a deck, balcony or patio. Outdoor seating no longer has to mean uncomfortable chairs that hold up in all types of weather. Here are a few examples from Wayfair.

Take Cover

Shade is a must from the summer sun, especially for daytime parties and events. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a large amount of money building a roof or installing a Pergola. The solution can be as simple as popping open a large umbrella. 

Light it Up

Outdoor lighting has come a long way in the last twenty years. It’s extremely easy to match your style and set the ambiance with lights strung up through the trees, around the landscaping,  under the umbrellas and hanging from outside walls. Using candles and torches for that dramatic soft glow can be very romantic.

Turn on the Heat

Make use of your outdoor living space during those brisk fall evenings and chilly spring mornings by adding a touch of warmth. Fire pits or fireplaces are a great addition to outside living areas. Another way to go is a propane or electric heater. There are many, many options for exterior heaters.
