Five Tips For Furnishing An Outdoor Space

Aug 17, 2007
Furnishing an outdoor space can be just as important as furnishing an indoor room. In fact, the two can be very similar where furniture and effect are concerned. That is why it is essential to choose the right decor to fit the surroundings.

Whether you live in a climate that is relatively warm year-round, or are only able to enjoy the warmer weather a few seasons out of the year, you probably look forward to coming home to sit out on your deck or patio, or to spending weekends entertaining friends and family on your lawn. No matter how large a space it is, you want to be sure it is comfortably furnished. That is why it is important to choose patio furniture that will help set the mood and match the space. Below are five tips that can help you get started.

A table and chairs is one of the most popular furniture sets placed on a patio or deck. If you do not want just a plane picnic table, consider purchasing one made of glass and/or metal with matching chairs. Adding an umbrella and cushions to the chairs can really dress up the area, and make it a comfortable place for you and your guests to relax and enjoy the sunset or simply spend a lazy afternoon.

A hammock is another great addition to your patio or yard. Many people love relaxing in one that is either stretched between two larger trees, or that stands alone. It is often better to place it in a shaded area, since napping in a particularly sunny location could become a bit uncomfortable, but either way you go, it is sure to be a favorite among guests.

Lounge chairs also provide another great way to relax. Once you have eaten a big meal, you can retire to the patio where you will be able to relax in comfort, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the great outdoors. Lounge chairs are also a great way to spend a long afternoon.

End tables are another great choice. They not only look great when placed strategically around the yard or patio, but also provide a place for guests to put drinks, insuring that their glasses or bottles will never have to rest on the ground. Place them by your lunge or lawn chairs for added convenience.

If you live in an area lacking trees, consider adding a portable screened-in porch. They come in several sizes, most of which are large enough to hold much of the furniture listed above.
