Creating an Outdoor Room on a Small Budget
When it comes to outdoor entertaining, an increasing number of homeowners want more than just somewhere to place an outdoor dining table.
Patios and decks are now bringing the inside out, creating magnificent outdoor rooms, with strategic furniture placement and accessories that make the outdoors just as comfortable as indoors.
A recent survey revealed that among the most desired items for patios were water features, fire pits and “plugged-in” gadgets. While these may sound expensive, they don’t need to be. Durable, stylish outdoor furniture is now available to suit almost any budget, with some sensational pieces available for just a few hundred dollars.
Designing the space well to include items such as an outdoor rug, a potted fountain, carefully planned plants and a string of lights means you can be on your way to creating a magazine-worthy outdoor entertaining area. Keep it fresh and beautiful with regular maintenance and enjoy the outdoors all year round.
