Our patio expands our living space, as it sits right off our family room. It is lived in and because of our weather used almost 365 days a year.
By adding comfortable furniture, your outdoor room becomes more inviting. All our furniture out on our patio was either given to us or bought on sale so it does not have to cost much to make an outdoor room comfortable.
Flower containers are your artwork and bring happiness when you are outside viewing and tending them or something pretty to view through your windows and doors.
I often stand at the French doors and look at the pots of flowers. It just calms me and makes me well, happy.
A water feature or fountain not only is lovely to the eyes but acts as a sound barrier to city noises. The constant trickle of water I swear lowers your blood pressure.
We celebrate birthday, holidays and nice sunny days out here. Our outdoor patio is indeed another room of our home.
