Whether you have an outdoor living space that is small in size or a large area it is an opportunity to become a place of refuge, relaxation and enjoyment.
If you enjoy updating your home's decor as the seasons change, it can be nice to include a few outdoor touches year-round. For example, you might want to add some natural decorating materials such as flowers, plants, pinecones, or seashells. Even if you add only a few small touches, your home will have the subtle atmosphere of the great outdoors. You could also choose to "go bold" with your outdoor decorating scheme by using wind chimes, trellises, outdoor flower pots, fencing sections, or other outdoor decorating materials in interesting new ways indoors.
If space permits, a sitting area in your front yard will be a good addition. You can place a nice outdoor bench or maybe a pair of rocking chairs matched with a fitting beverage table. You may also want to add a couple of relaxing fabric pillows in your sitting area for comfort. Another option is to add some hanging plants for a more refreshing ambience.
Outdoor flood lights and the outdoor spot lighting could be used to not merely light a area but may be applied to draw attention to buildings, darken carports or signs. The outdoor post lights would be used to light a large parking lot or depending on the style of the post, might be utilized to display items such as the flags, banners or Christmas lights.
Planning a retreat area really doesn't require a great deal of time, effort, or even money. In fact, you may already have everything you'll need. A comfortable place to sit, a source of light, and some basic amenities that support activities that you find to be relaxing are all you really need. To enhance the illusion of being outdoors, it can be fun to use patio furniture and other outdoor accents to create a look that's "almost" outdoors. If desired, you can also add a few decorative touches to make your retreat area a bit more appealing. For example, nature-themed metal wall art or a few live plants can be used to add some decorative appeal.
Even though you may remove your outdoor furnishings from outside, at the end of the summer season, and store them or winterize them, you will still experience some deterioration in fabrics, furniture, accessories and decorative yard art through each spring and summer season.
