Designing a perfect outdoor living space is easy with a few key tips.  Outdoor living areas have become increasingly popular in recent years.  These spaces can range from a simple patio to a luxurious outdoor kitchen and living room.  And, these outdoor spaces can provide tranquility, family connection, and beauty.  Here are some tips to make a fabulous outdoor living space.

#1: Designing a Perfect Outdoor Living Space – Daydream, then Decide on the Outdoor Space’s Dedicated Purpose

Have you been dreaming of a backyard paradise?  A place where you can relax after a long day at work or kick back on the weekends and enjoy the outdoor space your home has to offer. Again, you can have that backyard you have always dreamed of with a little imagination, and there are many ways to get there.  Next are a few ways to create that backyard oasis and have a place to kick back and enjoy a little nature.

#2: Get Inspired

As you hang wall art indoors, the walls of your outdoor space can also be the background of intriguing elements that add interest to your patio. Elevate your space with Tableaux decorative grilles.  They can be strictly decorative accents or combined with a solar shade to provide light control.  Additionally, use them as room dividers to offer a sense of privacy in your backyard room.  The Tableaux product quality is top-notch and lasts well outdoors.  Also, ask us about exterior patio shades, a must to keep your backyard room cool this summer.

#3: Plan it Out, then Purposefully Layer Furniture, Accessories & Decor

Naturally, we consider the house’s interior and the outside areas separate entities, with a great difference between them.  However, nowadays, in the best luxury furniture projects, there are no longer borders between the indoors and outdoors, but multiple ways to connect these two areas.  We suggest layering “a room” from the ground up, starting with a rug, furniture, fabrics, outdoor draperies, accessories, and decor.

While you don’t have many walls to bring colorful elements, you can achieve a similar effect by adding colored accents. A few ways to make an outdoor space more eye-catching is to use patterned throw pillows that can take on the color scheme you already have inside your house. In the same way take similar throw pillows and blankets that you would use indoors and outdoors making the space appear larger and more cohesive. 

Please contact our Made in the Shade team when you are ready to design your outdoor living spaces.  We can help you with custom throw pillows, rugs, outdoor drapery, exterior Tableaux faux iron grilles and ask us about patio shades.  Finally, designing a perfect outdoor living space is easy.
