Summertime in The Maritimes can’t be beaten. The beauty of our nature, the sunsets, and the greenery around us make for some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Have you ever found yourself wondering how you can take better advantage of this in your own home? The last few years have seen an increase in the popularity of the outdoor living room. Expanding the footprint of your living space to include part of your backyard is not only a great idea, it’s something we can help you with!
One of the first things to consider when building your outdoor living room is that it needs to work as a flow. A flow from your indoor space to your backyard. This outdoor living room should work as an in-between space. You want a space that allows for easy airflow, and the ability to enjoy the weather, but also you want something covered giving you protection from the elements while you enjoy the outdoors.
Outdoor furniture has a ‘look’. You can tell patio furniture from the moment you lay eyes on it. When you build your outdoor living space, you want to bring the comfort of indoors, out. Look for the pieces that reflect comfort, and also feel comfortable. Nice chairs, side tables, and area rugs are all pieces that should be considered.
Your outdoor space should be comfortable and cozy. Up that cozy factor by using soft lighting, furniture, and accessories. The sun, sky, and nature around you will provide the bold colour statements. Let your decor blend in so nature can stand out.
Looking out into your backyard now, do you see enough space to build the outdoor living room of your dreams? Before you start the decor planning, make sure you have the area you need. Building, or expanding a deck will give you the space you need, helping you to avoid having to sacrifice the pieces of your outdoor space that you really want.
