Rather than go with the traditional combination of flowers and chocolates, why not surprise your Valentine with something truly spectacular this year? If you share a home, then you can build them the outdoor living space of their dreams! With our help, of course.
Work with Your Space, Not Against It
Many people have this misconception that you need a large outdoor space to truly create another living area. While that’s ideal, it’s definitely not necessary. Together, we can create effective and luxurious living on a small balcony, a medium-sized deck, or a multi-acre backyard. It’s all about the traffic patterns! With the help of walkways, properly sized furniture, and fun decorations you can establish separate areas that encourage people to hang out and relax.
Add a Little Spark
With the right fire feature! Although it’s not a requirement for outdoor living, it certainly spices things up. Whether you prefer a rustic fireplace or a modern chimenea, you can find the perfect piece that suits your size and space. Of course, if you’re really cramped, you may need to check your local fire codes first. Just to make sure you’re allowed to have open flames in your outdoor area. Otherwise, there’s always candles and lanterns to set the mood!
Get Cozy with Seating
Nothing will encourage your Valentine to come outside and relax quite like the right seat. While you want your materials to be durable, comfort is important too! When picking your benches, chairs, stools or even floor pillows, try to find the right balance. Ideally, your seating arrangements should be fun, flexible, and sized for the space. As a quick tip, try to avoid too many crazy patterns in one small area. Rather than looking funky, it can actually create the appearance of clutter and ruin the effect you were going for.
Maximize Your Views
One of the highlights of any outdoor space should be your view. Whether that’s a great rooftop overlook or a beautiful backyard, just try to enhance what’s already there. In some cases, you may not have much going on outside. So, create a focal point of your own! You can have a secret garden feel with strategically-placed planters and fairy lights. Or go Moroccan with a patterned wall and fabric touches. Honestly, if you go out of your way to make it special, your Valentine is sure to appreciate your efforts.
When you’re really trying to wow this Valentine’s Day, consider calling in the experts. We can take your outdoor living space to the next level with a new deck, patio, porch, or fence. But we’ll leave the decorating up to you! Ultimately, we hope you and your Valentine have a wonderful day.
