Small + Simple Outdoor Living Spaces

Indoor-Outdoor Connection

Create an ultracomfortable space by adding the same luxuries you enjoy in your living room. Furniture with plush cushions provides a great place to relax. A stylish indoor-outdoor light fixture suspended from the ceiling makes the space usable after dark.

Color Up

Include a large patio umbrella in your outdoor-room decor. Besides offering much-needed shade to an unprotected patio, it provides a nice vertical element and brings in color overhead. Here, the bold blue of the umbrella and matching chair cushions add the perfect pop of color to the relatively neutral patio

Perk Up Old Furniture

Give your tired patio furniture a facelift with a spray paint. With so many colors and finishes now available for just about every type of surface, your makeovers are limited only by your imagination. Can't pick just one? Opt for a variety of colors for a fun and creative effect.

Make It Accessible

Ensure you use your patio by placing it where you can get to it easily. This patio is extra convenient as it’s sited just a couple steps down from French doors leading inside. A mix of stone and wood create a layered look.

Secluded Getaway

Need a relaxing escape? Build one in your own backyard. This outdoor room features French doors, suspended divided-light windows, and a corrugated-metal roof—creating the impression of a fully enclosed space. Inside, a bed offers the perfect spot for an afternoon nap.

Rooftop Contemporary

Create a high-end modern feel with contemporary furnishings. A gravel patio and simple plantings are the perfect choice for this rooftop space above a modern condominium with great city of views.

Step Up

Use all-weather deck material to create an elevated patio. Large containers with lush plantings place at the corners visually connect the patio to its surroundings. Consider matching the containers to the patio material for a united look.

Cozy Corner

Create a cozy corner protected from breezes for a place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or afternoon tea. Add shade with a pergola overhead. Choose durable furniture that withstands the elements.

Quaint and Cozy

For tight spaces, a quaint outdoor dining table and are perfect for enjoying a casual meal and taking in great outdoors. Here, a bistro table with armless chair fits the bill without crowding the small deck.

Color Underfoot

Use a colorful and patterned outdoor rug to pull your patio furnishings together. The rug will liven up pavers, brick, or wood flooring; bring your color scheme down to the ground; and create a visual center for your outdoor room.
