A well-kept outdoor seating area is a breath of fresh air in any home or garden. Before you get started with the decorating process, take a moment to think about what you hope to accomplish in your outdoor room. If you plan to use it for sumptuous dinner parties, then a table and good lighting will be required. If you want to just bask in the sunlight from time to time, that calls for a chaise lounge made from a material strong enough to endure the elements.
You can create an outdoor oasis using muebles jardin Carrefour and lighting available at any luxury furniture store. It won’t be easy, but when you are sitting outside with a good book and an ice cold glass of lemonade, you will be glad you took the time to do it right.
Materials and Weather – Consider where your outdoor seating will go. How much exposure to the elements will there be? This will save you a lot of time and maintenance down the road. Carrefour Weather resistant patio furniture comes in wicker or rattan, wrought iron, teak, cedar, cypress, and pine. A thick layer of cushions made from water proof material is equally durable, dresses up the furniture, and makes it appear more inviting. In a sunny area, you may want to include an umbrella to protect the furniture and your skin.
Try It Out First – Before you invest in an outdoor oasis, take the time to try it out in a Carrefour high-end furniture store. Although it may look good in the catalog, you want to make sure it has a certain level of comfort as well. This ensures that family and friends will want to sit on it for years to come.
Off Season – You can increase the lifespan of outdoor pieces by years with proper care. The fact is that heavy rain or the constant barrage of sunlight will cause even the toughest materials to fade. During the cooler months you may want to bring your patio furniture in for storage, and during the blaring heat of summer you may want to keep your patio furniture in the shade, if you have it. Keep this in mind as you decorate your space.
Landscape Lighting – Outdoor lighting requires a lighter touch than indoor lighting because our eyes naturally adjust to the environment. Excessive lighting can create light pollution or even a glare that blinds people at night. However, light does not illuminate as large an area outdoors because it does not reflect off any walls, windows or mirrors. Common places for outdoor light fixtures include pathways, entryways, driveways, staircases, sitting areas, as well as any other architectural feature you wish to highlight.
Designing the perfect outdoor seating area is similar to decorating indoors, except for the weather. Carefully think about where the patio furniture will go, how you want it to be used, and where you plan to store it during the off season.
