On the inside of your home you take great care to strategize and design your own individual space. From art work on the walls to your kitchen cabinets, each piece is chosen to represent who you are, helping your home reflect your unique style and personality.
Your outdoor living space should be an extension of your home’s interior, allowing your personal flair, style, and sense of fun carry over outside to your poolside, patio, or backyard oasis. From solar-powered twinkling lights to unique patio accessories, it’s easy to make your patio your own with these six outdoor living space ideas from Casual Living.
Outdoor Dining – One of the easiest ways to make your outdoor space feel like an extension of your home is to create a warm, inviting outdoor dining area. Choosing outdoor dining patio furniture that matches your décor vision is a great place to start. Alu-Mont Santa Barbara Dining or Hanamint Westfield are two inspiring collections to try from Casual Living.
Keep Things Versatile – Especially if you’re designing your outdoor space for gettogethers with friends or family, it’s a great idea to keep your furniture pieces and setups versatile and moveable. We suggest investing in furniture made from lightweight, yet durable materials such as cast aluminum or all-weather wicker. Depending on seating arrangements and seasons, it will be easy to move this type of furniture around to accommodate your guests.
Choose Your Colors – Choosing colors and patterns is where you can really let your personal taste run free. Do you like earth hues or wild prints? How about both? Find Sunbrella® fabric used in most of the cushions, upholstery, and awnings found at Casual Living. With hundreds of patterns and colors to choose from, you’ll have fun, fashionable splashes of color to add your patio with each season.
Create a Conversation Piece – When the lights turn down low and the meal is finished, there’s nothing more relaxing than reclining with friends and family around a glowing firepit. Roast marshmallows, recount old memories, or spark great conversation with firepits or outdoor fireplaces.
Fun with Lights – Enhance the ambience of your outdoor space with solar or LED lights. Suspend them across the patio doors or amidst the trees. Set solar path lights alongside gardens and walkways to add soft lighting to help you enjoy your backyard any time of day.
Accentuate Your Style – Apply the final touches to your outdoor space with unique accessories, curios, and backyard accoutrements that really help you claim your patio as your own. For a family-friendly atmosphere, add an outdoor crafts corner. Set up an outdoor projector for summer movie nights. Lay out ornate rugs or furnish your patio setup with unique beverage coolers or patio umbrellas. Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to decorating!
