Your Home's Outdoor Spaces

Create a space at your home where you can enjoy the outdoor weather. A small area can be utilized by just adding some colorful chairs and a small table. Decorate it up with some bright paint, pillows, flowers, or dazzling planters. If you have a kitchen window looking out to the yard, utilize that space by creating a bar outside where you can hand out drinks. Using high top tables, bar stools, or patio furniture can be used to expand your space from the indoor to outdoor living. If you live by a busy street, use a fountain or bushes to help drown out the noise.
