Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Living Area April 2016

  • A long table invites company and conversation—and makes a grand design statement.

  • An overhead portico makes your outside space more functional, with a place to shelter from the sun and rain.

  • Segment your patio into different sections for enviable entertaining and relaxation areas.

  • A fire pit inspires gatherings and is the perfect place for late-night get togethers.

  • Light transforms any space. For the outside, subtle lighting allows for an easy transition from day to evening.

  • Privacy is key for any outdoor area. Go green by adding tall trees such as cypresses for privacy and beauty!


  • Make your patio stand out. A geometric flooring pattern can be both stunning and functional.
