Friends and family will invite themselves over for weekend gatherings once you have your patio design finished. Redesigning indoor spaces to be functional for the outdoors helps guests and homeowners feel more comfortable. You can easily accomplish this technique by continuing the design flow of the home to the outdoors.
- Living Area
Recreate an outdoor living room by including an outdoor sectional. Find a few side tables and an ottoman or coffee table that suit your style, and your outdoor living room will be ready for Fall entertaining. We suggest outdoor wicker with extra thick cushions for added warmth and comfort.
- Kitchen Space
Stop traveling back and forth between the inside and outside. Creating an outdoor kitchen space helps keep ingredients nearby and guests happily fed without continuously getting up and down. Grills, pizza ovens and ice bins are excellent outdoor additions.
- Entertainment Zone
Install outside televisions to create a dedicated entertainment area for sports night or just to get out of the house during cooler months and eliminate routine boredom. You can also add a horseshoe pit or cornhole boards for more gaming fun.
Outdoor areas are great fun until weather strikes and guests have to bolt inside. Eliminate that urgency and wet feet on your hardwood floors by creating a cozy, protected space for everyone to enjoy the Fall weather.
This structure offers some protection from the sun while keeping it airy. Some pagodas have the option for partial or complete coverage for your patio entertaining.
Full-framing for your patio can be in the form of sliding doors, screens or an entire covered structure. A complete system will help protect you and your guests from the elements well into Fall and Winter, easily extending the entertainment life of your patio.
- Added Warmth
Fire tables and outdoor heating devices are all the rage – and they come in a wide variety of styles. From mounted and floor heaters, to portable tabletop flames and built-in fire tables.
Decor such as warm toned throw pillows, fur blankets and lanterns also add a cozy feel to your outdoor space. Seasonal decor can keep the area fresh, fun and warm. If you are unsure what palette to match, look to the great outdoors for natural color inspiration.
