“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” –Albert Einstein
Adding an outdoor living room has become an increasingly popular home upgrade that can bring purchasers in droves and it’s not hard to see why. To start, it’s a relatively straightforward — and stylish — way to give everyone in your home more room to spread out. Plus, it creates an additional area for you to entertain. If you have the room, there’s really no reason for your living space to stop at your back door. No longer is the back garden a dry grassy wasteland with a hills hoist, where cricket was played on Christmas afternoon.
If there’s not plenty of room for people to sit and relax, it won’t matter what other features are added to the space. Proper seating, especially when its plush and unbelievably easy to stretch out on, is the thing that will ensure your outdoor living room gets plenty of use.
Once you get your outdoor furniture home, it’s all about the placement. Seating works best when arranged into small groups that allow people to gather and talk. For personal use, one seating area will suffice, but if you entertain often, you may want do consider creating multiple areas. You can really be creative with your outdoor seating, and if you wanted it to be really personal you could think about memorial benches for the ones you love that are no longer with us.
Where outdoor living rooms are concerned, a heat source like a small fire pit or larger built-in fireplace is a particularly good choice. Not only will this feature lend a sense of drama to the space, but it’s also incredibly utilitarian. Adding a heat source to your outdoor area will increase the amount of time you can spend enjoying it. It will allow you to weather chilly nights and seasonal changes that would otherwise render the area unusable.
Outdoor living rooms are an area of your home that can truly be tailored to individual tastes. Some are simple and cozy while others are extravagant undertakings that feature plenty of high-end amenities.
