As the chilly days begin to dwindle & the sky gets bluer, we’re all getting a bit antsy to head outdoors! For most of us, that means dining al fresco for supper & mornings spent sipping a cup of coffee on the patio. A recent trip to Dryden Properties’ Wyngrove Apartments left us longing to spend an evening on the balcony enjoying this wonderful weather & the sweet scent of blooming jasmine. By adding a few items to patio or balcony, you can create a space you love to spend time in! Your outdoor space could be another “room” your family loves!
Have a seat!
Without some seating on the patio, you’ll have a hard enjoying the space. You want this space to comfortable so select seating you’ll enjoy. If you plan to use your space for outdoor eating, think about a picnic or bistro table. If you’d rather just unwind in the elements, maybe a hammock or Papasan chair is more your style.
Create some shade!
We all love to feel the warm rays of the sun on our skin, especially after the winter months. We don’t however, love it enough to enjoy sweating for it! Add an umbrella to your patio table or consider a pergola to add more shade!
Keep pesky critters away.
Unfortunately, being outside means being around gnats & mosquitos. Save yourself some heartache & add some citronella candles & tiki torches to your patio or balcony. A small fan might be a good option, too!
Add some green.
What outdoor space would be complete without greenery. Add whiskey barrels of ferns or potted plants for those who have greener thumbs. Make that space inviting & peaceful with some natural elements.
Make it your own!
String up some lights and throw an outdoor rug down so your personality shines through. We love to see our renter’s & homeowner’s personal touch to their space & your patio is no exception!
Now that you’ve spruced up your outdoor space it’s time to enjoy it! Fire up the grill or grab your favorite book, head outside & enjoy some time outside!
