By  0 Comments

Give your outdoor room, also known as the patio, summer hang out central, the place to be, the same design attention as the inside of your house with these five outdoor room ideas. Make your outdoor room so wondrously inviting you’ll want to live in it! Read on for more details on how to select all the elements you’ll need to make your patio the most used “room” of the house.

Ditch Those Hard Plastic Chairs
Include sofas, coffee tables, side tables and ottomans. It is easy to plop a table, four chairs and umbrella on the patio, but you need to incorporate some of the same elements you would in any other living space of your house. With outdoor fabrics, you can have lots of comfy seating.

Dress It Up!
And don’t forget a few accessories to make your outdoor room feel inviting. Add toss pillows, vases, pots and even outdoor lamps. This is the best way to personalize your outdoor furniture and add your unique style. 

Make It Fun With Color!
Don’t be afraid to use bright colors for your outdoor room ideas. It is less intimidating than inside decor and it makes your backyard the chicest hangout in town. 

Don’t Forget the Flooring
Fill every bit of your outdoor room and don’t forget to include an area rug to ground and define the area. Outdoor rugs are relatively inexpensive and easy to clean; just take a garden hose to it and you are good to go.

Add Lighting for Major Drama
String some lights under the patio cover or install some up lights along the fence for drama. A super-easy way to add ambiance is with candles. Use lanterns to house them. With outdoor lighting, you’ll be sure to enjoy your lush outdoor room after the sun goes down.
