Tables and Surfaces
If you have a smaller outdoor area, feel free to skip the outdoor dining table and just go for a coffee table that can double as a place for a delicious spread or an after-hours game of cards. Small side tables so you never have to reach far for your drink also go a long way in an outdoor setting. But if you have room to spread out, nothing is better than dining al fresco all summer long.
When it comes to seating, focus on making conversation circles. Even if you have a small area, a chair across from an outdoor sofa, promotes good conversation and balances the space.
String lights zig-zagged overhead, or small fairy lights wrapped around a tree will absolutely bring your outdoor space up to the next level. Don’t skip this ingredient! It will feel so inviting and turn any ordinary night into something that feels special.
Heat Source/Fire Feature
Whether you’re roasting marshmallows, hot dogs or just keeping the patio warm after the sun goes down to prolong the conversation, a fire feature is a mood you don’t want to skip.
With the rise of all-weather textiles, your patio can now look just as cozy as your living room. So make it happen!
