Modern Outdoor Space

It's that time of year again! Get ready to spend more time in your modern outdoor space, both day and night. There's just a few things you need to consider as you prepare your outdoor space.

FUNCTION

The first thing you should do before selecting outdoor lighting, purchasing outdoor furniture or laying down any stones is figure out how you want your outdoor space to function. Will you be entertaining? Do you want to eat out there during the day or night? Maybe you just want to lounge on sunny days?

STYLE

Keep in mind the style of both your home's architecture as well as the interior design. Selecting furniture and lighting that will compliment your home's style is important for the overall flow of the design.

PLANT LIFE

It's important to include some plant life in your home, but it's especially important to include it in your outdoor living space! Greenery can be used as a barrier as well. In the case of this home below, close quarters required them to come up with a design plan to ensure privacy. They chose tall, narrow trees and it was a brilliant move.
