Are you sitting in a beautiful outdoor space that could be transformed into a summer oasis?
To the envy of many homeowners, a fully furnished outdoor space can deliver hours of fun, enhance your property’s appearance, and even increase the value of your home.
Whether you want a relaxing setting to enjoy your downtime or an impressive spot to entertain family and friends, here are some practical steps for creating your very own outdoor space!
Create a Plan for Your Outdoor Space
Before you go buying new outdoor furniture and accessories, you should evaluate your space, its unique qualities, and any potential limitations. Is it shaded or exposed to the sun? Does it offer a scenic view or is it shielded by trees?
With this information, start to envision how it could be used. From playgrounds and poolside cabanas to fire pits and bars, the possibilities are virtually endless!
Select Luxury Outdoor Furniture
Ready to start filling out your space with outdoor living furniture? First, consider the types of pieces you might need. If a fire pit or table is going to be the centrepiece of your setup, select comfortable seating that can be arranged to face that object.
In most cases, your furniture should be weatherproof so that moisture, dirt, and debris doesn’t cause it to develop rust, become moldy, or break down prematurely. Think wood, stainless steel, and various types of plastics.
Next, start thinking about the style and colour scheme you’ll be using. If you’re worried about your furniture becoming dirty, steer clear of white, cream, yellow, and other bright shades.
Add Ambience with Accessories
After choosing all of your luxury outdoor furniture, you’ll want to start thinking about accessories that will bring your outdoor area to life. Ambient light fixtures, candles, fire bowls, rugs, cushions, and planters, are just a few of the many options that could complement your outdoor living furniture.
Be careful to neither go overboard nor come up short when accessorizing. There’s a fine line between tasteful accessorizing and throwing everything out of balance!
Integrate Entertainment Options
To complete your space, add the entertainment options you think your guests might enjoy. It might be a fire pit, a bar with a TV display, a table with various board games, or larger game options such as bean bag toss, table tennis, or bocce ball.
Clean and Maintain the Area Regularly
As outdoor furniture will collect dirt and debris much faster than indoor furniture, routine maintenance is key. Make a habit of sweeping dirt and debris from the area, as well as gently wiping down all of your furniture and accessories.
During the spring and autumn months, you should sweep pollen and rake leaves from the area as it accumulates. During the winter months, you should make sure that all of your furniture is either brought indoors or covered up to avoid damage.
