The season for outdoor living is (somewhat) in full swing. If you are struggling for space in your home, why not turn to the outdoors? Granted, it is hard to balance both an outdoor and indoor living space, however we have just the tips and tricks for you to enhance your outdoor living environment and to make it something quite special. From statement dining sets to accessories, put some life back into your garden and prepare to soak up the vitamin D.
Granted, we cannot always count on the weather, however outside space is possibly the most versatile area for you to put your stamp on and has unlimited potential for an equally cosy living space.
You must decide what it is that you want from your garden. Is it a place to read, to socialise or maybe to dine? The possibilities are endless and by no means do you have to stick to just one category, however this will help you with what you want to populate your space with. Perhaps you want to unwind, so a lounge chair or sun lounger may suit you perfectly, or maybe you would like to create a social hub, therefore a long table may be required. If space is limited look for stools and compact tables. All outdoor spaces come in different shapes and sized and most importantly, should be a place for you to enjoy.
Stretch out Your Space
With the rise in confined apartment living, stretching your living space to the decking and balcony can expand limited areas, by continuing your colour scheme to your outside space, you can create a cohesive flow in your home, making outdoor living fluid while promoting an al fresco lifestyle.
Blend Indoor and Outdoor Styling
To truly embrace the al fresco way of life, treat your outdoor with as much care as your indoor space when thinking about style, don't be afraid to layer up furniture and accessories including rugs, tables, chairs and lighting to create a space that feels like just as cosy and at home as your living room.
Invest in Your Pieces
You can also use your indoor furniture outdoors. Personal accessories really cement your style, so your outdoor space should have the same feel. From cushions to planters, you can dress your outdoor setting to suit the time of year. (You can always bring your accessories back inside) This will help you achieve flexibility allow your space to evolve with you, from day to evening and across seasons.
Create an Urban Jungle
Being amongst the outside is all about welcoming nature, and it is essential to embrace this. If you have limited space to introduce greenery, using planters of various heights, widths and sizes will completely reinvent your area, you can even encourage greenery on your garden walls to introduce the illusion of space expansion.
Colour has the power to transform any living space, no matter what your style your outdoor area can accommodate. From muted to vibrant tones, soft greens or harsh blacks don't be afraid when picking garden furniture. The beauty of a garden space is you are not confined within four walls therefore you can be braver with colour due to the freedom of the environment.
