Outdoor Rug

First step is to define the space with an outdoor rug. Sometimes, it’s difficult to actually see the square footage you’re working with when it’s just concrete or wood. An outdoor rug not only defines the space, but it also brings color to your outdoor area.

Lounging Area

Designating a seating area is essential when making the most out of your outdoor living space. You can lounge on an outdoor sectional by the pool, or if you’re limited on space, a charming garden bench or a cozy outdoor rocking chair will also do.

Accents and Plants

Outdoor accents, like lanterns, lights, garden stools, etc., helps create a cozier outdoor vibe. Adding textures, with throw blankets and toss pillows, makes such an inviting space that you may never want to go back inside. 

Plants add more life and color to your outdoor space. They help fill in boring or unattractive areas, like the corner of a balcony or a balcony railing.
