Fall is the perfect season to enjoy outdoor living on your patio.
Now that the weather has cooled down, and the evenings are perfect for relaxing outdoors on your patio, upping your outdoor living game will help you create a space that expands your living space beyond the four walls of your home.
Find the perfect Gazebo-in-a-box or custom designed gazebo to transform your outdoor living space. A gazebo can be the perfect spot for your hot tub, or a quiet space to relax with a book. Add comfy outdoor chairs with plush cushions, and planters full of greenery and seasonal flowers.
Your patio needs inviting garden decor, luxurious but practical outdoor furniture, chairs perfect for entertaining, colorful cushions, and lots of pillows to take it from hum-drum chairs on a concrete slab to a super-inviting outdoor living space. The idea is to make your patio as inviting as a living room – without the walls, and with the stars above for inspired relaxation.
Design Toscano is the outdoor specialty catalog that has all the extra touches that will make your patio a space that invites living, not just “sitting.” Find fountains, garden sculpture, unique planter boxes, and chimeneas that add your discerning personal decor sensibility to your special outdoor living space.
Furniture. It’s what will make or break your outdoor living space. To get the concept right, you have to purchase furniture that is the same scale and quality – and comfort level – as the furniture inside your home. That means you should look for great fabrics, patterns, and construction that equal parts sturdy and stylish. Nebraska Furniture Mart also has grilling accessories, super fire pits, and patio umbrellas that offer the right amount of shelter for all-weather outdoor living.
If you are committed to outdoor living, you will also be committed to outdoor cooking and entertaining. Find outdoor grills, bar-be-que and specialty cooking applicances – like smokers – at La Cuisine. You can choose appliances that are a bit more specific to outdoor cooking than those in your kitchen, so feel free to get creative. Look at liquid propane, charcoal, digital, and Euro-styled appliances. Built-in grills give your outdoor living space a solid sense of permanence, and outdoor storage solutions add versatility. You can shop their digital catalog too, from your armchair in your outdoor living room!
Hand-crafted rustic furniture could be the perfect vibe for your outdoor space. Amish Outlet Store has traditional artisanal furniture that – with the right finish for longevity – makes your outdoor living space meld perfectly with the surrounding environment. Outdoor dining sets, gliders, generously proportioned outdoor chairs, and outdoor swings are great building blocks for your outdoor living decor.
Drapes? Outdoors? Yes, we are serious. Luxurious, generously gathered hand-loomed cotton blend drapes or sheers will be the finishing touch for your outdoor living patio. Drapes can protect you from the sun, help control insects, and lend privacy to an exterior living room. Choose drapes that are casual, and look for those that are easy care or mildew resistant. You can add protection from the elements with a silicone spray. Don’t forget tie-backs for when you want to open your patio to the great outdoors.
3. Fresh Finds
Two things: dining accessories and environmental protection. You don’t want to be running back and forth between your indoor kitchen and your outdoor living space, so find suitable tableware, glass- or plastic-ware, and serving pieces dedicated to your outdoor space. Elasticized tablecloths, gourmet grilling tools, folding buffet tables, and candle lanterns fully outfit your patio for living in the great outdoors.
Pick a country-compatible theme and your outdoor living patio will have a relaxing, natural vibe that invites long lazy days, and laid-back entertaining. You can choose from wicker furniture for a classic American feel, or French bistro styling and wine barrel furniture that invites leisurely wine and cheese parties.
Casual dinnerware that says quality not plastic is the key to making your patio a living-dining room, not just a place to park your lawn chairs. Melamine is the solution to break-a-phobia! With designs and patterns that are just as gorgeous as your fine china and porcelain, contemporary melamine is shatterproof, safe for outdoor dining, and dishwasher safe. Score for classy outdoor dining and entertaining.
