6 Tips to Design the Picture-Perfect Outdoor Living Space You may want to hire a designer to have the perfect outdoor living space designed for you and your family but you don’t need one! Designing and building an outdoor living space doesn’t require a home-improvement-show team. You can create your own space that’s perfect for your needs and desires, simply with the following 6 simple tips.

Focus While designing outdoor living, many people think of it as a summertime area with pools, or waterfront views as the focal points. But did you know that some of the best and most versatile outdoor living spaces have an outdoor kitchen or a living area surrounding a sheltered fire pit as their focal point. This allows you an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors through the fall and winter months too.

Traffic Establishing traffic patterns is a key element in designing an outdoor living space. While there are numerous ways to do so, pavers and paths are always great for marking paths during the day. For evenings and nights, incorporate innovative outdoor lighting to guide your guests. Lamp posts, lanterns, torches and path lights, are excellent choices for lighting your outdoor space in the moonlight.

Seating If you love outdoor entertaining, you know that more is always better, when it comes to outdoor seating. Consider that while planning seating options for your outdoor living area. You can choose from a large selection of sectionals, loungers, bistro and dining sets, benches, hammocks, and even swings for your outdoor space. You can buy these in classic teak or wicker or more contemporary metal options in iron, aluminum and steel.

Visual Appeal You don’t have to be a flower and foliage expert to be able to transform an ordinary backyard into a haven for friends and family. Look for plants that are native to your region. Also check out plants that require little care and maintenance as they are thrive well in local weather conditions. Apart from plants, consider adding color to your outdoor space with furnishings and accessories, such as vibrant cushions, throws and rugs that can boost the visual appeal.

View Privacy is important. You may not want to build tall fences but you don’t want the world to be able to peep into your backyard. Consider using taller plants, garden screens, and climbing vines for privacy. In addition, ensure that some of your outdoor living area is protected from the sun and rain by adding outdoor umbrellas and awnings.


Personalize Make your outdoor spaces as unique as you. Do you love to have family gatherings around a fire? Consider installing a fire pit. Are you passionate about barbeques? Get an outdoor grill or pizza oven. Let the space match your personality and your needs. Then, build the space with those plans in mind.
