Small But Mighty
The last couple of months has emphasized the importance of outdoor space. Whether it is seeing the singing Italians on their balconies or the front porch photos on Facebook, we realize even with a small outdoor space, creativity can transform small spaces into mighty elements of any home.
Use furniture that is in the right portion for the patio space you have. Buying oversized furniture will not make the space comfortable or efficient.
Potted plants can enhance a patio space, but remember not to overdo it with lots of tiny pots. Think groupings, one large, two medium, and a few small pots. The right plants can create privacy, add color and be useful. Try herbs in the small pots.
Maybe you love dining al fresco. Add a bistro set. Maybe you are an avid reader. A strategically placed rocking or lounge chair will become your haven. Maybe you like to lounge in the sun. Maybe you like to cook. Add a grill and bar stools.
Think Vitamin D and Fresh Air
No matter how you design your patio and deck area, remember fresh air, sunshine, and views of nature refresh, rejuvenate, and restore.
