Whether you only have a short strip or an irregular-shaped backyard, a well-thought out plan and design can make an oasis out of your outdoors. Here are 5 space-saving ideas we have come up for a better outdoor living.
Most outdoor areas instantly become more welcoming with the appropriate seats allocated in prime locations for sitting, lounging, and chilling. Whether it’s a leather armchair, folding seats, or a corner sofa, cozy seats make your outdoor area the best room to pass summer afternoons or rainy evenings in.
You don’t have to have a full-scale garden that can rival those botanical gardens to feel closer to nature. Planters brimming with vibrant plants are enough to brighten any dark spot. And when it comes to planters, always remember the three important categories for plants: a thriller, a spiller, and a filler.
Whether hanging, climbing, or in pots and vases, freeing the ground can make your area bigger. What could have been dominated by plants can now be re-purposed for a plush seating area while you move the greens and blooms upwards. Vertical gardens raise the look and feel of your outdoor space and transform it into an ultimate zen area where relaxation and nature both have ample spaces to thrive.
Wooden pallet seats can have storage in it. Tables can also have a fire pit in its midst. And countertops can be customized to slide and store on top of each for more space. Whatever structure, furniture, or feature you plan to have, ensure it serves more functions. This gives your outdoors a neater look and lessens the need to clutter your outdoor space.
Thin and Sturdy Patio Cover
Instead of a solid patio cover, why not consider a metal pergola with thin steel beams which can have climbing vines, bamboo mats, or patio shades installed? Pergolas save more space and keep your outdoor living airy.
