How to make outdoor spaces more functional year-round

The patio is the perfect place to spend your summer relaxing and spending time with your family. If you could use your space year-round, not just in the weather is perfect?

Since the end of the past years, more and more homeowners are investing in reconstructions that create an cohesive connection with them between their indoor space and outdoor space. It is worth noting that this trend for functional living space upgrades outside can help to seamlessly blend your home and yard.

You can keep your outdoor space functional beyond the cool breezes of spring and the bright sunshine in summer. The three recommendations below will help you get the most out of your patio and yard in any season.

Include functional, weatherproof furniture.

For a functional outdoor space, the key to a functional outdoor space is weatherproof furniture.

A little hassle can be a hassle to pull out extra chairs or tables from your living room and bring it into the patio, but that is what you’re used to if there are no furniture durable enough for different weather conditions. I recommend you try furniture that is made of polyresin wicker or other weather-resistant materials to protect your patio sets from the possible deterioration. The covers for furniture can be used to protect any cushions or pillows that are out if it rains or snows in your area.

Along with the addition of dining sets or comfortable seating arrangements to your patio or yard, you will be more likely to spend time outside with family and friends. What you need to host fun events like weekend lunches — think of all the barbecues and potluck.

Specialize your space with additional lights.

As fall and winter approaches, the days will inevitably grow shorter and the evenings are longer. The day will be shorter and the evenings longer. At the same time, you shouldn’t have to close up your outdoor space for half the year because of it. So, take your outdoor space to the next level and install some lights that will brighten it literally and figuratively.

String lights are a good choice for decorating your patio, as they can help create a romantic or soft feeling around your area. In case of a colder climate, you can install a fire pit, which will provide light, a welcoming environment and, most importantly, warmth for your guests. It is possible to also select lighting options with the addition of built-in pest control. All options are endless! The possibilities are endless!

It is possible to make the upgrade to motorized retractable screens.
