Creating an outdoor space you can enjoy

These are some of the things that you need to consider before you start to decorate your space.


  • The Size of the space that you are working with.
  • Is it covered or not covered.
  • The kinds of things that you would like to use the space for.

All of these things are important before you start.

If it is a small space that is not covered you are limited to what you can use it for and the kind of materials that you can use in the space.

If it is a medium to big space you have a lot more choices as to what you want to do. But is it covered or not covered.  You can have different areas  for different things eating area, seating area, cooking area.

It makes a difference with the things that you are putting in the space if it is covered or not covered.  If it is not covered, the things that you put out in that space need to be able to take the weather without getting damaged.


This video shows more things that you can add to the space to add beauty to it.

These are some of the things that we saw in the video

  • adding pillows to the seating area.
  • adding hanging baskets with plants to brighten and beautify the area.
  • add some style to your coffee table.
  • adding hanging lights
  • adding texture with rugs

These are but a few of the things that were shown in the video.

Enjoy the outdoor before the weather changes if you live in the areas that you get snow. Make sure to protect the things that you have in the outdoor areas so that they will still be nice come spring.

What can you learn from those that live in small spaces?

People that live in small spaces have to think outside the box so that they can have all the things that they need to live.  They need space to store things. Places to sit, sleep, cook and so on. Furniture that has more than one use. Things that hide away when not in use.

If you are looking for furniture that does more than one thing check out this video.

You may not need to put four people in one room, but you can use the concepts of the space-saving furniture into your home. Think of the ways that you can use these things in your home to add more function to your home. If the bed hides away you have more room for children to play in the room and not all over the house.
