When designing a stylish outdoor space, you need to consider:
Scale: measure your area so you can purchase furniture that fits your yard or patio. You need to leave a lot of room for you & your guests to move around.
Style: continue using your indoor style outdoors.
Focal Point: you need a focal point to anchor your eye just like your interior rooms. This could be an outdoor fountain, fire pit, established tree or a garden area.
Comfort & Durability: purchase the best furniture & accessories that you can afford. This will save you money in the long run by not having to replace them often.
