Have a bland porch? Weeds growing through your patio? A neglected deck? A little spring cleaning and some simple additions – a hanging swing, some mood lighting, a vintage find or two – are all it takes to transform an ordinary outdoor space into an open air living room that adds value and comfort to your home all year long.
Create an Inviting Porch
Everyone loves a swing, young and old. What better way to enjoy the warm weather than watching the world go by from the comfort of a swing! There are some great simple units that can be purchased online or ask us to about creating a custom unit for you.
Lighting is the easiest way to transform any space from drab to dramatic and inviting. With outdoor spaces it’s even easier. Candles, lanterns, fire pits and chiminea’s all create magical environments without the fuss (and costs) of new wiring. However, a well placed ceiling fan can work wonders in the heat of the summer months!
Add Depth to your Deck and Patio
A flat deck or patio is just that…flat. But adding layers and levels to that original dimension will not only create the illusion of more space but also give you a more enjoyable and usable space for you and your guests. Built-in benches, integral fire pits, ambient lighting and platforms are just a few examples…and a well placed hot tub can work wonders for any space!
