Do you love to be outdoors? Do you dream of creating a cozy outdoor living space to call your own? It’s time to stop dreaming and start doing. Here are some tips to help you create the space you crave.

Embrace the Space

Every back yard or patio has its perks and its flaws. Embrace the space you have and find ways to make it work for you.

Comfy Seating

Comfortable seating will make or break the amount of time you spend in your outdoor living space. Purchase quality furniture. The weather can take a toll on cheap furnishing, and quickly. Protect your furniture with furniture covers in the off-season.

Pops of Color

Be sure to include colorful pillows and accessories, as well as a rug. Rugs provide comfort and warmth. Plus, it’s a great way to bring in color, texture, and patterns. Make sure you purchase an outdoor rug. It will be weather resistant, easy to clean, and great for high-traffic areas.


The perfect lighting can transform any bland backyard into an inspiring space. The right lighting can create a warm, cozy, and romantic ambiance. Here are some ideas for lighting your area.  

Fireplaces and Firepits

It’s incredible how a flickering flame can add to the coziness. Consider adding a fireplace, fire pit, or even a few candles (flameless are a great alternative).

Outdoor Kitchen & Dining

Nothing is more satisfying than eating a meal outside. Prepare and enjoy your food in your outdoor space. Here are some great design ideas for your outdoor kitchen.

The Indoors Out

Part of the fun of outdoor living space is that you combine the indoor comforts with nature in an extended living area. Add cozy blankets to bring that inside feel to the outside.

Thanks to the modern conveniences of flat screens, it’s easier than ever to hang a TV anywhere. Be sure to install them in enclosed spaces to guard them against the weather.
