How to Extend Your Living Space Outdoors

When it comes to the interior of your home, you may have plenty of ideas on how you would like it to look and the best ways to use your space. However, very few people have definitive ideas about how to optimize the look and functionality of the exterior of their home. There is a multitude of possibilities when it comes to your outdoor space. By extending your living space into your yard, you can maximize the potential of all of your space, and not just the interior of your home.

Watch Where You Step

There are many different options when it comes to the flooring and is one of the biggest cost factors. Flooring options include decking (wood or synthetic), brick pavers, concrete, tile or other natural material such as crushed granite. Even with small spaces can be made to feel larger with different patterns and different elevations. Our designers can help you choose the perfect style, texture and color to compliment your home.

Lighting Your Outdoor Space

Contrary to popular belief, your only outdoor lighting choice is not the standard floodlight. Floodlights provide a harsh, bright light that is not desirable for an outdoor living and entertaining space. The lighting of your space can set the tone for yourself and your guests, and there are many options from which you can choose. By adding landscape lighting is an excellent option that can help create an attractive ambiance or create an intimate, relaxing area for you to enjoy. Lighting your outdoor living space in a practical, thoughtful manner will emphasize the comfort and style you're trying to create for yourself and any guests you entertain. Our designers can help you combine different lighting techniques to help create the ambiance you desire.

Providing Cover and Temperature Regulation

You can add excellent coverage for your exterior living space to ensure you keep the elements at bay. There are many stylish options to choose from that will cover your outdoor living area adequately. There are retractable canopies to use for temporary measures, or you can opt for a more permanent structure that functions well in all types of weather such as a beautiful pergola or gazebo. For side coverage from the wind, you can look for striking curtains or shade cloths that can be hung from your outdoor structure as much or as little as you would like. We can help you find the best coverage options to match the functionality and aesthetic you would like your outside living space to have. For wintertime, you can add a fireplace or fire pit to make your exterior living area more comfortable in the cold. By adding a source of heat to your outdoor living space, you can lengthen the amount of time you spend enjoying it into the chillier months. Plus who doesn’t love to eat some smore's with friends.

Decorating for The Seasons

There are specific factors to keep in mind when you consider how you’re going to decorate your exterior living space. It’s best to keep the colors of your furniture limited to neutral tones so that you can vary your colorful accessories throughout the seasons and changing popular styles. This way, you can alternate the look of your outdoor living space regularly and never get bored of it. Furthermore, it is crucial to choose furniture that is high-quality and weatherproof. Your exterior living space will be able to withstand whatever the elements bring about, and the cost of maintaining your space will be much lower.
