Choosing Outdoor Furniture for Your Space
Choosing the right furniture pieces for your outdoor space can sometimes seem like a daunting task. With so many options, it may be hard to know where to begin. Here are a few design tips to help get you started.
Large spaces can be laid out to feature different “areas,” helping you use the space to its maximum potential:
- Place outdoor dining pieces by the grill.
- Lounge chairs and sofas can be placed in a shady conversation area.
- Add umbrellas to any areas where sun protection is desired. With so many colors and edge treatments available, finding a coordinating canopy is a breeze.
- Chaises and daybeds make for ideal after-swim lounging. Since outdoor performance fabrics are often bleach safe, you can relax straight out of the chlorine pool, worry-free!
Use accent pieces or common colors to tie the individual areas together. Decorative pillows, outdoor drapes, and other accessories can go a long way to unify a space, even if it is spread out across several areas. Try matching your dining seat cushions to your sofa throw pillows for an easy touch of continuity.
With millennials continuing to pass up owning a home and staying in urban areas, small-space design is seeing a surge. Many retailers sell “patio” or “petite” furniture, perfect for smaller balconies and apartment living. Another easy way to accommodate a small space is to go with a modular set. Any combination of pieces can be bought, meaning it can be customized to your unique taste and space.
Outdoor floor pillows, bean bags, and poufs can all be used to add color and personality, while offering seating that is easy to store when not in use. These pieces can also double as accent tables.
