5 Ways To Make The Most Of Your Outdoor Space


If you’re in a home with any sort of outdoor space, chances are you’re under-utilizing it’s potential.  Here are some tips to make the most of your outdoor space:

  1. Make it cozy.  If your patio or porch is just a blank canvas, consider hanging a porch swing and adding some decorative indoor/outdoor throw pillows to cozy it up.
  2. Add finishing touches.  Add some great finishing touches such as some brightly potted plants, a nice indoor/outdoor carpet, vintage lighting fixtures or other unique touches.
  3. Create an illusion.  Hang a large mirror from an exterior wall or fence to create the illusion of another room, larger space and more light.
  4. Take advantage of the green.  Add a pergola and grow climbing vines such as grape or ivy to provide extra protection from the elements and add a sense of sophistication to your space.
  5. Engage the senses.  Adding details such as a fire pit or fire bowl creates a sense of warmth.  Adding a fountain or water feature adds soothing sound to your space.  Planting pots of great smelling herbs such as lavender or mint engage the senses as well.
