4 Tips for Creating the Ultimate Outdoor Living Space for Your Calgary Home

Are you getting tired of staring at those outdated pieces of patio furniture? Perhaps you want to mix things up a bit and utilize more of your property’s square footage. Either way, creating an outdoor living space is a great way to take advantage of your home’s exterior. The team of Calgary modern furniture experts from Furniture Extreme has collected some tips to help you.

Here are four ways to turn your exterior into the ultimate outdoor living space!

  1. Let the Furniture Create the Mood 

Do you want a more modern outdoor living layout or something classic? One good way to find inspiration is to let your choice of furniture create the mood. Wicker pieces can create a more rustic feeling while stainless steel or wrought iron a more sophisticated atmosphere.

  1. Stick to a Color Scheme 

Outdoor living spaces have a lot of colors to compete with, so it’s always best to choose a complementary color scheme and stick with it. Otherwise, you might have pieces of furniture and colors clashing with those in the surrounding environment, lessening your comfort and making things appear somewhat haphazard.

  1. Choose the Right Pieces 

Ask yourself what type of mood you’re trying to set and what function your outdoor living space will serve. Do you want to have a place to relax and kick your legs up? If so, investing in furniture like sofas and ottomans is probably a good idea. Maybe you want to create an outdoor kitchen; then barstools, tables, and storage areas will probably serve you well.

  1. Personalize Your Outdoor Living Area 

After installing all the essentials (tables, chairs, grill, swing, etc.) it’s time to add a little bit of personality to the space. Consider stringing up some tea lights or candles in the area or hanging a favorite painting or two to let your creative side rub off a bit.
