Tips For Dreamy Outdoor Spaces of Any Size
If you’re lucky enough to have a backyard, patio, or balcony, you know that spending time outdoors is one of life’s greatest pleasures. A well-designed outdoor space can be just as comfortable and inviting as an indoor room.
Helpful design tips make it easy to create one yourself. No matter how much outdoor area you have, you create a dreamy outdoor space that will enhance your quality of life. We’ll start from small areas and inch up to larger outdoor rooms to give you an idea of any outdoor dwelling options.
Starting Small with Outdoor Spaces
If you have a tiny balcony or small patio, there are still things you can do to make a great outdoor space for gatherings or just for your enjoyment. Make the most of your available area with these double-duty furniture ideas:
- benches with hidden storage
- stools that can be side tables
- large throw pillows that can double as additional seating.
Plant a mini garden to add green to the space, using wall containers or small pots on small shelves. If you have an open sky over your tiny, fantastic outdoor space, try to draw the eye upwards by utilizing the space above your patio or balcony.
String lights can make the most of covered or uncovered space, and you can use pallets and other inexpensive wood to build up, up, and up to create depth for the area.
Dazzling With a Medium Sized Outdoor Space
If you have a full-sized deck, patio, or large balcony, you have a few more options for your outdoor space. Use a fun paint pattern on the floor or spruce it up with a large indoor/outdoor rug.
Get plenty of comfortable furniture for gatherings and consider a fire pit table for chilly evenings. Depending on the available space, you might consider a grill and a small cafe table and chairs, even if you don’t have the space for an outdoor kitchen.
Think about why you want the space, then add elements to make it into your dream space with the amount of room you have. Think about adding a small fountain, or a little hardscaping, to create some texture and movement in your area.
Going All Out with Your Outdoor Space
If you have a big backyard, the sky is the limit when it comes to creating a dreamy outdoor living space. You can break up the area with a patio and deck. Or you can put in a pool or prominent water feature.
Use interesting hardscaping to create texture and interest to please the eye. Consider adding an outdoor kitchen. This will let you cook delicious meals for guests without going in and out of the house.
Your outdoor kitchen can have a sole grill and table, or you can add a built-in brick oven, refrigerator, sink, and even a beverage refrigerator!
No matter the size of your outdoor dream space, you can enhance it with hardscaping, gravel areas, and string lights to make it memorable. Entertain family and friends and extend the usable footprint of your home to create an outdoor space today.
