While summer is already upon us, it is not too late in the season to make some enhancements to your deck or patio, creating ideal outdoor spaces at your Naperville-area home. Your home is where you spend the most time, and you should be able to do that in comfort both inside and outside.

Do everything you can to create an ideal location for a stay-cation, and that includes creating ideal outdoor spaces. Below are some tips to help you enhance your outdoor experience without leaving the comforts of your home.

A few ideas for creating ideal outdoor spaces:

Consider the lighting – Outdoor lighting can add a whole new dimension to the look and feel of your patio. It is more than a safety and security element. It can give your patio the added feel of space and comfort. The lights can prove engaging design elements on their own. Lights are a fun way to bring your outdoor spaces to life.

Your comfort is paramount – This can mean different things to different people. It might mean going for the furniture with the softer, more comfortable seats. It might mean an area rug or some other “soft” feature to make it a more compelling place to spend time. Maybe it’s some sort of privacy shade or wall in an otherwise open layout. But remember, you are trying to create an area you will love spending time. Be honest about its limitations and try to work around them.

Use the natural plant look – Look hard at the areas around your patio. Is there somewhere you can build in a planter or other element to draw out the natural look of the yard? This natural look goes a long way in creating ideal outdoor spaces around your home. It’s using the elements that already exist in your backyard for the benefit of design. If you have some native plantings around your patio it can enhance the look.

Connecting up – Do you already have a pond, or favorite garden or tree? It might be time to build a path from the patio to your favorite location in the yard. This can add a beautiful design element to your backyard and help in creating ideal outdoor spaces around the various areas of your backyard.
