After a long, relentless winter, it’s finally time to take advantage of the sunshine and what better way to do this than by spending time outside? With our guide to creating the ultimate outdoor living space, we make it easy to create your dream destination without ever having to leave the comfort of home.
Select Your Seating
An outdoor living space is only as good as its seating options. Seriously, it’s impossible to enjoy yourself when you’re not comfortable. When choosing patio furniture, consider how you plan on using it. Do you see yourself napping al fresco on a warm summer afternoon? You’ll want a luxurious lounger like the Key Biscayne Canopy Daybed. Need a place to rest your wineglass while you relax after work? An Adirondack chair has a wide armrest, perfect for balancing a glass of Sauvignon Blanc while you kick up your feet.
The Importance of a Good Dining Set
Once you’ve determined what your seating needs are, you’re going to want to think about tables. After all, a patio isn’t a patio unless you’ve got somewhere to put the plates of delicious food you’re going to grill on your state-of-the-art barbecue, right? For the ultimate outdoor gastronomic experience, a full piece dining set like the Atlantis is second to none. With options that seat up to 8, you’re guaranteed to have a spot for everyone who drops by. And trust us, when they hear about your set up, they will be dropping by.
Warm Things Up
Even if your patio is situated smack dab in the middle of an urban centre, it’s always nice to heat up by a fire when the sun goes down. Provided local bylaws allow for one, an outdoor fireplace or fire pit is a great way to add a certain je ne sais quoi to your space. Because they come in all shapes and sizes, you’re bound to find something that suits your needs. Just don’t forget to stock up on marshmallows for roasting.
I’ll Drink to That
For those looking to take their patio to a whole new level, it only makes sense to incorporate a bar. After all, nothing tastes better than a summery cocktail concocted by the resident mixologist (that would be you) on a sizzling afternoon. The Palm Bay Patio Bar is not only a great place to shake up something delicious, it’s a stunning addition to your outdoor oasis. Trust us, with a bar like this, you’ll never want to leave and the good thing is that you don’t have to.
Hone Your Green Thumb
So you’ve got the incredible dining set, you’re relaxing on the most comfortable daybed, and you’re sipping a drink you made at your own bar. It only makes sense to take advantage of your dreamy patio by surrounding yourself with nature’s finest flowers. Head to your local nursery to find out what grows best in your region and stock up on whatever makes you happiest. Not sure if you can keep a garden alive? Opt for simple, low maintenance blooms that don’t require much upkeep but still add a splash of colour.
