Ramp Up Your Outdoor Living Space

Do the winter blues have you contemplating revamping your outdoor living space? One of the easiest ways to increase living space is by reworking your outdoor space.

Follow these recommendations from the professional designers to get the ball rolling on your outdoor project.

Start with perusing the design websites and copy ideas into a folder or bulletin board.  Once you’ve established a budget, assembling ideas will be much more realistic. If your project includes hardscape, awnings and a new patio or outdoor kitchen, take the time to meet with a designer. They’ll present you with ideas and options that you not otherwise have thought of. A good designer can also recommend contractors for construction work and landscape architects for new landscaping and hardscaping.

Decide on the function and design of your space. Will it be primary for dining and entertaining or lounging? Perhaps you intend it to be a combination of the two. Once your design has been finalized, the work can begin. If you’re a do it yourself type of person, be sure to research the best materials and design for your project. Your goal is to have it function well, be a pleasing design and endure the trials of time and weather.

After your project is complete, add a few large planters with colorful bedding flowers to accent your new space. Introduce fabrics and more color through awnings, market umbrellas and chaise cushions. Call your friends and family, grab some ice tea or champagne and have a toast to your new outdoor living space. Cheers to the fruits of your labor!
