Tips for creating the perfect outdoor living space

With temperatures on the rise (and that we are all stuck inside) we’re sure most of you have been dying to get out of the house. Well, we have some good news for you, we’ve done the research and compiled a great list of tips for how to create an amazing outdoor living space that will help you enjoy all this time at home.

– Landscape


It’s almost essential before starting to landscape (especially for the first time) that you develop a plan for what you want your outdoor living space to look like. The last thing you want to do is start ripping things out of the ground and throwing in pavers or cement only to not be satisfied with the way things turn out.

– All the comforts of the inside, outside.


Start by finding comfortable outdoor furniture, this can be a very easy way to bring the comfort of the inside, outside. Take it up a level by adding throw blankets and or pillows for an additional layer of comfort and warmth for those breezy spring nights. Adding things like an outdoor projector and screen or just a T.V. would also be a welcome addition for entertaining guests.

– Add fire.


Nothing says outdoor living like a fireplace. The addition of a fireplace to an outdoor setting breathes more life into the outdoor season, as well as gives you a cozy place to decompress and be out of the house.

– Add an outdoor kitchen/bar


Now that you have your cozy outdoor living area, why not spice things up by creating an outdoor kitchen/bar space. An area like this would be an amazing way to entertain for parties in the spring and summer.

Hopefully following our tips (and having a large Pinterest board) have helped you formulate an exciting plan for your dream outdoor living space. Now that spring is in its height and summer is right around the corner there is no better time to get started than right now!
