3 Ideal Outdoor Living Space Ideas

Spring is nearly here, and the weather is beautiful. Plus, you want to spend some more time outside and away from the stresses of the world. It’s a perfect time for an outdoor living space!

Perhaps you want to spruce up your outdoor living spaces, or you may want to create one from scratch. The best way to maximize your time outside is to create the perfect backyard living room and retreat. It’s your staycation right at home and a place to connect with friends and family while enjoying nature.

In this article, we look at three ideal outdoor living space ideas.


#1: Fire Feature Centerpiece

One of our favorite ways to center an outdoor living space is with a fire feature as the centerpiece.

Fire features are great in the Wichita area during the fall, winter, and spring months. It can be your focal point.

When it comes to fire features, you can always add a traditional fireplace, but you can also make it easier by adding a fire pit. The fire pit table is the perfect option. You can purchase one to match your existing decor, or you can choose all of your decor to match it.

First, think about how you are going to use your fireplace or fire pit. Is it just for decoration? Will you use it in your conversation pit, or do you want to roast marshmallows on it? Also, will it be your main heating source?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you can decide what’s right for you. As always, we are here to help you with a wide selection of fire tables and fire pits.

#2: Focus on the Dining and Living Areas

The next plan for your outdoor living space is to create a dining area and a living area. Your dining area is where your table and chairs go, while the living area might have a sofa, loveseat, comfy chairs, coffee table, and side tables.

The goal here is to create a comfortable place that rivals the inside of your home. When picking out dining sets and furniture, stay true to the design aesthetic that you used for the interior of your home.

Think about wood, metal, aluminum, and more. Consider how you want to use your space. Do you want dinner conversations that last forever? If so, consider cushy, comfy chairs. If you’d rather eat and head to your sofa, seats without cushions are fine. Check out our furniture pages for some inspiration or stop by and let us help.

Finally, don’t forget the accessories. Pillows, throws, table decor, and dishes play into the overall feeling of your outdoor living space.

#3: Light It Up

Since this is a cozy room where you eat and lounge long into the night, you want to bring in some lighting. You might add a ceiling fan with lights or a chandelier to the ceiling. You can also put lamps on the tables.

It’s also fun to hang string lights around for some added ambiance. Consider solar lights on your walking paths and even something unexpected like Tiki torches outside.
