When it’s no nice and beautiful outside, you don’t really feel like staying inside the house. You want to transfer all the main activities outside. For example, who wouldn’t like to have an outdoor dining area? It’s a wonderful feature that allows you to entertain your guests while allowing them to enjoy the weather and the views. But what should that space include in terms of furniture and décor? Here are some tips and ideas.
You could try to a simple design and just have a table and some chairs on the terrace or deck. It would be nice to also have a patio, preferably a covered one so that you don’t have to get inside when it rains. But if you prefer to feel closer to nature then you could move the dining area to the garden.
Choose a spot and put the table, the chairs and maybe even a lamp there. You’ll get to enjoy the company of your guests or family while also enjoying the garden, admiring the vegetation and the lovely weather. It would be like having a very well organized picnic.
When you have a covered patio or deck, lighting is not a problem. You can have pendant lights or chandeliers. It’s important for the light to be subtle and to not disturb anyone. But when you get to sit in the garden, by the pool or in any similar space, then it’s not so easy. You can be creative and put some lamps between the branches of a tree or maybe use candles for a more intimate and romantic atmosphere.
