3 Ideas for Designing a Multi-Functional Outdoor Living Space

From decks and seating areas to fully functional outdoor kitchens, there’s no shortage of fantastic ideas for outdoor living spaces. The ideal one for your home shouldn’t be about what’s trending; it’s one that centers around your lifestyle. Here are some ideas to help you prioritize your wants and optimize your outdoor space.

3 Outdoor Living Space Ideas 

  1. The Entertainment Space
    If barbecues are essential, consider building a space that facilitates cooking and dining. Add an outdoor kitchen, complete with appliances and ample space for food preparation. In conjunction with your outdoor kitchen, you’ll need plenty of room for seating. Keep your kitchen and seating area close so you can easily carry food to hungry guests or talk while cooking. 
  2. The Pool
    Use the space around a pool to create comfortable places for people to lounge and dine. Divide the area into quadrants as you start to design your space. One long side could be designated for lounging, for example. Place several chaise lounges on that side with umbrellas and tables for placing cool drinks. Use one side for food and dining with a grill and a table for dining al fresco. On the two short sides, you can add additional seating or consider a water feature, such as a waterfall or fountain. 
  3. The Indoor to Outdoor Space 
    Blur the lines between your indoor and outdoor space by creating a seamless flow between them. Imagine a back door to your home that leads to a patio covered with a pergola or screened-in porch that fluidly transitions into the outside. Fill your outdoor covered area with the comforts of the indoors to make it feel like an airy room of your house. Consider comfortable seating for entertaining, like wicker sofas and rattan chairs, or place a day bed or hammock out there for afternoon naps in the sunshine.
