Summer is all about making the most of your time outside, as we all know. Work from home has never looked so wonderful with those sunny days and balmy summer breezes – especially if you have a four-season patio or a beautiful outside location to work from!
When you’re surrounded by luxurious couches, warm wraps, and the vast outdoors, it’s easy to find peace. Make a welcoming outdoor area with plenty of seats and conversation elements. When it comes to constructing your outdoor hideaway, we’ve compiled three crucial ideas to keep in mind. With a few more blankets or some standing heating lamps, you can extend your outside space into the fall if you play your cards well.
Integrate Natural Elements
The key to establishing an organic refuge in your outdoor space is to keep things natural. Planting trees, constructing a herb garden, or simply putting flowerpots over the area are all simple methods to do this. Use blankets, pillows, and outside rugs to tie in natural materials like clay pots, ceramic tile, and botanical-themed prints.
The Dolce Bamboo area rug in frost by Couristan is an excellent example of a botanically printed product that will provide colour and practicality to your outdoor retreat while still adhering to a natural concept. This vibrant area rug is made of UV-protected fiber-enhanced polypropylene and is mold and mildew resistant.
Make Gathering Areas
Creating discussion zones is probably the most important aspect of constructing a useful outdoor space. A campfire ring, a coffee table, or an outside eating area is all good options. Make sure you choose seats that are both comfy and durable enough to resist the elements.
Lulu & Georgia’s Cadenza Indoor/Outdoor sofa in neutral is the ideal place to unwind. This sofa is great for relaxing on your terrace, thanks to its compact wood frame and low-slung shape. This couch was created for the outdoors, with performance fabric upholstery that is durable, fade-resistant, and easy to clean. Try the Outdoor Basket Chair by CB2 if you’re searching for some timeless chairs to go with your dining set. This modern statement chair has a powder-coated frame that can endure the elements and is made of imitation rattan weave.
Take into account the flooring
Consider the needs of your outdoor space as well as the climate in which you reside when choosing the floor. If you live in sunny California, for example, you can probably afford to build white-washed wood decks and verdant turf; however, if you reside in the Northeast, you’ll need something that can withstand the cold winters. Porcelain tile is one of the best outdoor flooring options because of its unparalleled robustness and wide range of pattern options.
With its solid colours textured with colored flakes, Dal-Tile’s Industrial Park porcelain tile is inspired by Terrazzo and concrete and will give any space a contemporary feel. This hardy tile is extremely slip-resistant, making it an excellent choice for wet places such as the pool deck or your kitchen.
