It’s time. It’s time to move outside.
The weather has turned and we’ve gone into storage to pull out the cushions and umbrellas and furniture. Our house isn’t the biggest, but when we’re having dinner outside it might as well be a mansion.
Charlie scrambled to get everything set up this week and we had our first dinner outside. It was glorious.
Best Buy sells outdoor furniture and barbecues. I don’t know if you knew that, but they do. From big umbrellas to chaise lounges to complete patio sets to portable and durable barbecues, Best Buy has what you need to get set for summer with The Best Buy Outdoor sale is on until June 2, 2017.
That leads right through the May long weekend giving you plenty of time to get thinking about planning your outdoor living for the summer.
Five Outdoor Living Ideas
1. An Indoor Extension
Take design cues from your indoors to make your outdoor space feel like a true extension of your indoor one. By integrating your landscaping with the existing style and layout of your home, guests can easily and naturally spill out of the indoor spaces onto your patio space. Pic the right piece and you can use it AND out.
2. An Outdoor Kitchen
It’s not just an outdoor relaxing space, it’s an outdoor cooking space too. Stunning and impressive, outdoor kitchens are also very low-maintenance due to the durability of stainless steel and other finishes. If you set it up right, you can BBQ 24/7/365. It’s not just a summer thing!
3. Fake It Til They Make It
We use artificial plants on our patio. You don’t have to wait for the real ones to fill in, so the moment we’re ready to grow outside, we’ve got a full lush patio. They’re also taller than plants to provide more privacy
3. Acessorize With Color
A great way to add color and style to your patio space is by accessorizing, just like inside your home. This could mean colorful pillows, outdoor rugs, table top arrangements, glass hurricanes and more.
5. Mix Of Sun And Shade
While we’re outside to enjoy the summer sun, you still need a place to find respite. Big canvas umbrellas are perfect to protect from the elements. Measure your table and the space around it to be sure your umbrella is the right size.
