As you begin to plan or even finalize your outdoor living space, it’s important to consider the role that outdoor decor plays in bringing your space to life and making it more comfortable. Take a look at our decorating tips to help you make the most out of your space. 

Fireplace Focal Point

A great starting point is a fireplace. You can think of the fireplace as a type of foundation for the decor that you are going to add to this space. The fireplace is also something that will keep everyone warm on those cold winter nights and may even double as a spot for roasting up some delicious meat, vegetables, and smores. Along with contributing to the appearance, it also adds a level of comfort. 

Create A Seating Area

Having the ability to sit down and talk to your guests, friends, and family members is important when it comes to decorating your outdoor living area. This is why you should add a seating area that’s comfortable and functional. From benches to reclining chairs, there are plenty of options.If you don’t have coverage for the area, make sure the seating solution you opt for is resistant to UV exposure and rain. Keep in mind the style that you are after in your outdoor living area, then choose seating solutions that provide a good match. 

Use Lanterns And String Lights

Creating an ambiance can help to cultivate a very unique atmosphere in your outdoor living spaces. This is where lights come into the picture. There are numerous lighting solutions that you can use outside, but we’ve found that string lights and lanterns often tend to work best. They don’t take up any floor space, yet you can still use these lights to provide illumination for the entire patio area. This is especially the case with string lights, as you can run them on pillars or your outdoor cover to ensure they provide illumination in the right spots. 

Create A Potting Or Gardening Station

To add some floral flare to your outdoor living area, consider adding a gardening station. The station doesn’t necessarily have to be a complete garden. Even a potting station with a couple of plants can do wonders. Make sure you carefully choose which plants you are going to add to these pots – as they should ultimately serve as a complement to the decor in the area. 

Add A Water Feature

For that final touch, a water feature is definitely something that you can consider. There are so many types of water features on the market, or you can decide to build your own. Make sure the water continuously moves to ensure it does not attract mosquitoes and other insects. The overall appearance of the water feature should also provide a good match for other decorative elements that you have introduced into this particular area.
