As warmer weather finally is here, it’s time to prep your patio for the ultimate outdoor living experience. Whether you’re lounging with a book, hosting a barbecue, or simply soaking up the scenery, your outdoor living space can be a true extension of your home. 

Here are some tips to elevate your outdoor game:

  • Incorporate Indoor Comforts: Real Simple recommends taking inspiration from your interior décor to create a cozy atmosphere outdoors. Add layers with rugs, pillows, and blankets to make your patio feel like an extension of your home.
  • Focus on Flow: Ensure a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces for easy entertaining. Consider adding features like bi-fold windows or extending your kitchen countertop for convenient access to refreshments. And, make sure that larger pieces of furniture aren’t blocking your way as you move around your outdoor space.
  • Style Underfoot: Better Homes & Gardens proposes investing in indoor-outdoor rugs to create the look of a true outdoor living room. Choose stylish yet practical rugs crafted from outdoor-ready materials for a high-impact, low-maintenance addition.
  • Outline Your Perimeter with Lighting: Create ambiance (and safety!) by lining your deck’s perimeter with integrated lighting, perfect for evening gatherings. Real Simple points to string lights woven into a railing for a magical look.
  • Fire Features: From fire pits to fire bowls, and even tables with integrated fire features, there are many great options for gas-powered, outdoor fireplaces. This not only can be a focal point of your outdoor living room, it’s also a functional way to heat the space during chillier evenings!
  • Go Bold: Better Homes & Gardens suggests selecting bold hues for outdoor furniture or accents, creating a cheerful and eye-catching splash of color.

With these ideas, you can transform your outdoor space into a haven for relaxation, entertainment, and soaking up the beauty of the warmer months. So, dust off your patio furniture, fire up the grill, and get ready to savor every moment of patio season in style!
