There are a few things to consider when creating an integrated outdoor room. One factor is whether or not the room is compatible with the natural environment? Is it accessible to utilities as well as walkways? Is it functional and easily maintained? When viewed from different perspectives is it pleasing to the eye?

It is very important to consider the climate, earth, incline of the land, foliage, drainage and where the sunlight descends on the area at varying times of the day. Once you have the answers to these questions you can begin to plan your outdoor room.

Express your style and character as you transform your backyard, patio or deck. The ambiance that you create will depend on your selection of outdoor furniture & the style of fabric that you choose.  Will you have low lights or bright lights? What form of shade protection will you add, a cantilever umbrella, a market umbrella, an awning, a pavilion or outdoor drapes?

Will you be entertaining friends in this space or enjoying the entire family including children in this area? Design the outdoor room to fit your lifestyle. Consider the addition of colorful flowers and a water feature to create a relaxing beautifully landscaped backyard oasis with spa inspired features.  Bring the element and passion of flames to the room with a hearth or fire feature.

When creating your design make certain to add a comfort ingredient so that you will want to spend more time enjoying the outdoor spaces. The potential for design is endless. Reflect your style in the selections that you choose, whether you are entertaining guests or enjoying family make your dream a reality as you design for the way you live. The transition from the inside to out can be a seamless passage for you to take pleasure in.
