1. Clean and declutter
The first step in sprucing up your outdoor living room is to eliminate any dirt or clutter. In a shed or workshop, keep lawn equipment, children’s toys, and pet toys. Scrub the entire area thoroughly, brushing away dust and dirt to reveal a new, clean canvas.
2. Get the Party Started Outside In
When interior and outdoor living spaces are combined, the outdoor environment feels like a natural extension of the house rather than an afterthought. Ensure that the family yard’s blinds and curtains are open, emphasizing the outdoor oasis. Using similar colours, fabrics, and patterns both inside and out to ensure that the indoor and outdoor décor complement one another. It will help to link the two spaces more effectively.
3. Build Comfortable Seating Areas
Allow for easy traffic flow in the outdoor living room while providing various seating options, such as a table, a fire pit, or a comfortable chair setup. To reduce sun glare and optimize fantasies of relaxation in the outdoor living room, provide some shade with umbrellas or outdoor curtains.
4. Make the Outdoor Area Cozy
To create an inviting environment, incorporate a few soft design elements into the outdoor area. Rugs, throw pillows, and upholstered outdoor furniture are only a few examples of how to build a “cozy” atmosphere. Make sure these pieces are in good condition and do not seem damaged or dated. New pillows and rugs are relatively inexpensive to replace.
Hang string lighting, place a fire pit in the centre of a patio, install a zen-like water feature, or decorate tabletops with candles, small plants, and fresh-cut flowers to create an ambience.
5. Take advantage of living landscapes
A stunning living landscape, complete with flowering shrubs, trees, flowers, and other vegetation, says, “welcome home.” Weed, mulch, and plant colourful flowers and verdant plants in flowerbeds and pots to brighten up the family yard. Vases of flowers can also help to liven up outdoor tablescapes and add a splash of colour.
