Want a Lovely Outdoor Setting?

  • How Can I Make My Project More Cost-Effective?

    Buying used furniture for your outdoor setting is a great way to save money. You can also be creative by turning items you already have into outdoor pieces, such as using an old trunk as a coffee table. And mismatched dishes, chairs, and cushions can be a great way to save money and add interest.

    Whether you want to entertain guests often in your lovely outdoor setting or you just want a cosy place to drink your morning coffee, there are endless ways to create the perfect space for your needs.

  • Where Should I Locate My Outdoor Area?

    Sometimes the answer to this question is clear. Maybe you have a large patio just begging to be used, or you already know you want to create a space near your swimming pool.

    If you have several possibilities though, you’ll need to decide where the best place in your yard is to create your space. You’ll want to choose an area with level ground. And consider what features of your yard you might want to locate the area near, such as a large shade tree, a privacy fence, or a gazebo.

  • How Do I Start Planning My Outdoor Setting?

    Homeowners are increasingly looking to create comfortable and inviting outdoor settings to entertain or relax in. Any type of space can be outfitted with furniture and decorated with plants, lights, or other adornments to maximise its beauty, whether the space is a small patio or an outdoor kitchen complete with a pool nearby.

    Setting a budget and planning what type of space you want can help you figure out what to look for. For example, a space for children to play in will be different from a space for entertaining adult friends; likewise, if you have dogs that spend time outside, you may need sturdier furniture than those with pet-free yards.

  • How Do I Decorate an Outdoor Area?

    As long as you use outdoor-safe items, the sky’s the limit. But there are a few tips to get you started that work well for most any outdoor space. First of all, neutral colours and natural materials look great outdoors and add a feeling of peacefulness.

    When placing plants in your outdoor setting, don’t be afraid to go with big tropical plants that might look overwhelming inside. Painting flowerpots is an easy and inexpensive way to add a splash of colour and whimsy.

    In general, decorate an outdoor area as you would an interior room, making it homey and comfortable with seating, tables, accent cushions, and special extras such as a hammock or a fire pit. You can find these items on Gumtree.
