3 Ways to Transform Your Outdoor Living Space

Summer has officially arrived which means we’re all looking forward to spending more time outdoors, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. If you’ve got the space, that could mean spending more time outside on your patio or deck space. If your outdoor living space is lacking in style and comfort compared to your indoor spaces, we recommend making your outdoor living spaces shine with beautifully crafted furnishings and decor. Here are our top 3 ways to transform your outdoor space into a comfortable and stylish space that you’ll be able to enjoy all summer long. 

Focus On Fabrics

Just like with your indoor living spaces, incorporating a variety of fabrics into your outdoor living space allows you to maximize the comfort and style of your space. Finding a great, high-quality outdoor rug to ground your outdoor space is the first step. As we mentioned in our guide to Rug Sizing, the rug you choose should be large enough that the front feet of the main furniture pieces sit on the rug. Rugs and fabrics are a great way to introduce a mixture of textures into your outdoor space as well. From soft cushions to decorative pillows, there’s no shortage of ways to incorporate fabrics into your outdoor space. 

Maximize Lounge Space

Particularly if you are looking to entertain in your outdoor living space, you want to make sure that you have plenty of space and seating options for your family and friends. Similar to how we craft indoor living spaces, make sure there’s a clear space for gathering and conversation. Introducing a sectional or loveseat may be a preferred option for maximizing lounge areas, as opposed to standalone chairs. Depending on your space, an outdoor dining table and chairs can provide plenty of seating, as well as additional opportunities to spend time in your outdoor living space this summer during meals, game nights, and more.

Dress It Up

Let your style shine through with the pieces you use to decorate your outdoor space. The sky is really the limit with your design, as you can dress up the space with a variety of decorative items, plantlife, and lighting options. These pieces put the finishing touches on any space, and shouldn’t be overlooked when designing your outdoor living spaces as well.
