When I received Beren’s email about revamping her patio, I was excited for two reasons: I’ve yet to put together a Room Redesign for an outdoor space AND with summer coming to an end, there are killer deals to be found on outdoor furniture and accessories. Let’s revisit Beren’s email…
Hi Cara! Do you have any recommendations for patio furniture? They are in the process of repainting the outside of our house, so we have really been waiting to do anything out there until after they get that finished. The patio is pretty small and we also have a grill that we want to put out there. I’m thinking that a dining set will be the best use of our space. Thanks my friend!
No worries, Beren. I’m on it!
On to the game plan…
1. Sitting Pretty: Most importantly, Beren and her soon-to-be hubby need a place to kick back after a long day. Enter the patio furniture. The first option offers a table narrow enough for a small space but still allows plenty of seating. The second set folds and stacks for easy storage in the winter months or to take inside for additional seating when a large group joins for dinner.
2. Personalize the Space: Let’s warm up the large wall behind the new patio furniture with a decorative & functional wall sconce. Not only does it help break up the large wall but will add a calming glow when lit. Top off the chairs with fun cushions, throw a few planters into the mix and we’re in business.
3. Grill It Up: Using concrete pavers, let’s extend the patio a bit to create a space especially designed to house the grill. This quick and easy project adds the perfect space for grilling without taking up valuable patio square footage better used for entertaining and relaxing with friends.
