Spring has sprung, and we all know what that means! It is patio weather time. Creating that perfect outdoor space can be challenging, especially when you don’t have much room to work with. When creating your small outdoor area a few things to take into consideration are location, function, and aesthetic.
When designing an outdoor space, location is an important factor. Consider the position of your space. Does it face east or west? Is it the front or back of your home? What privacy do you already have existing, if any? You will want to take note of these when positioning your furniture and decor to create maximum privacy and protection from the outdoor elements.
Function is key when deciding how to create your outdoor space. You will want to plan how you are going to use your space. Will it be an outdoor dining area or an outdoor kitchen? How many people will you need to accommodate? When you have decided on how you want your space to be used, you will be able to look for furniture and accessories that will create the most efficient area for your home.
Creating the right aesthetic is how you make your outdoor space truly yours. Take a look at your style and decide how you want to express it in your new space. What type of colors will you use? Are you going for a modern or traditional look? Does your outdoor space coordinate with the rest of your home? And most importantly does it represent you? When establishing your aesthetic, our team of designers can help find the best look for you and your space.
