By turning this space into an area suited for every season, you’ll have a great place to relax during your free time and to entertain family and friends all year long. Gone are the days of having a plain patio or deck where you had to pack everything up and stay inside when the cool air starts moving in.

Today, homeowners are leaning more towards creative designs that allow you to enjoy your outdoor area anytime, regardless of the weather outside. In order to create a space for every season, you must find the right design to suit your location and personal taste.

Choose the Best Amenities for Your Outdoor Space

The amenities you choose will depend on how you plan to use your outdoor space but there are a few items included in most designs. For example, a grill or fire pit is a necessity if you plan to cook out with family or friends. Modern grills are designed with temperature controls and removable burners to enhance the cooking experience.

Most all modern outdoor designs include a fireplace that creates a warm and inviting space when the weather begins to cool down. It allows you to enjoy the outdoors while staying warm and comfortable and fireplaces are easy to maintain and safe to use.

You also have a lot of beautiful and gorgeous weather-resistant styles to choose from that include the traditional wood burning style along with propane and gas units. If adding a fireplace to your outdoor design appeals to you, be sure to discuss it with your Miami interior designer during the planning stage of your project because the location of your unit is very important.

Another outdoor design idea that’s getting a lot of attention is the outdoor kitchen that includes all the same appliances and accessories you’ll find inside your home such as cabinets, drawers and counter space. By adding a kitchen to your outdoor area, you’ll have all the modern comforts and conveniences that you have inside your home right at your fingertips.

Dress Up Your Outdoor Living Space

To make your outdoor space even more special and to show off your unique personality, you need to dress it up a bit. Start by using comfortable furniture and then choose a variety of lighting options to create different types of environments for different occasions. For example, LED lighting will create a festive environment that’s great for parties and family get-togethers while overhead lights and lamps create a peaceful atmosphere where you can sit back and relax with your family.

Planting a flower garden and placing statues or water fountains around the outside of the area adds to the beauty of your space by creating a lovely view. Our expert designers have years of experience creating beautiful landscapes and we can help you find a design to surround your outdoor oasis that’s perfect for every season.

If you have an existing patio or deck, turn it into an outdoor living space where you can relax and enjoy the winter months as much as you do the summer. Outdoor areas add character to your home, provide extra living space and they increase the value of your property, so they’re a great investment.
