The icing on the cake:
So you have decided to hire Kane Landscapes, Inc. build you your dream pool or outdoor entertaining area; now what? Just like the inside of your home, proper furnishings and color choices can make all the difference in the end project. We asked the team of highly skilled interior designers at J&L interiors what they would suggest and here are a few of their tips to really make your new space stand out.
Relax and unwind
Bring your home and your life outdoors by creating little living rooms. Encourage areas for gathering to enjoy good conversation or to put up your feet to relax, arrange seating as you would in an interior family room. Intimate and private ambiance can be created by placing umbrellas, gazebos, awnings, and pergolas under which you can place your furnishings. And to help wind down, incorporate a porch swing or hammock.
Consider the elements
Since you will be having a living room outside, you have to consider natural elements. When making selections consider weather resistant products for your furnishings and fabrics. Incorporation of a storage bench or ottoman to place cushions and pillows in when not in use is always helpful. An umbrella is a great way to add some color and make sure your outdoor living space will not be too hot when you want to use it on that sunny day.
Enjoy the seasons
Design the outdoors as a place to live in year-round. An outdoor fireplace, shower, spa, and bed can create comfort and flexibility as the seasons change. Neutral patio furniture can change with the temperature as well. Vibrant outdoor colors for summer time can be switched to warmer oranges and reds when the weather starts to cool down in the fall.
