How to Design the Perfect Outdoor Space

Cozy home balcony

Whether you have a deck area, patio, porch, or a rooftop in the city, you can easily create a perfect outdoor space with just a few quick elements. Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your outdoor space this summer. 

Hang String Lights

Hanging string lights on a patio will really liven up the place at night while providing great lighting to make the space inviting after dusk. String lights are a perfect way to add affordable lighting all over a large area that’s soft, subtle, & perfect for those summer nights. In the heat of summer, you may find yourself wanting to reserve patio time for the evenings when you can beat the heat. Lights have the power to transform your space in the later hours of the day. 

Outdoor Rugs

Outdoor rugs are a great solution for a space that needs a bit more color. They also do a wonderful job of defining the space, which is especially helpful if you have a small footprint. Make sure to choose a rug that is designed to remain outside, as it will be made with much heartier materials than a typical indoor rug. If you happen to find an outdoor rug that you love at a good price, you may want to buy two for extra wear and tear. 

Embellish with A Pop of Color

Outdoor living areas are where one can be bolder with color choice and style. Have fun with accessories like pillows and rugs. Oranges and blues are great for summer and can give the feeling of being on vacation.
