In order to create a cozy outdoor room Belgard recommends that the space contain these basic components: comfort and intimacy.
Relaxed Outdoor Living
In order to enjoy your outdoor rooms further into the cold seasons, it’s imperative to have heat sources, such as heaters, heavy blankets, and fire features.
Place furniture pieces towards each other to create intimate “conversation areas”.
Also keep comfort in mind when choosing accessories like pillows, select soft plush items that will be cozy and hold up to the cold Montana weather.
Craft Outdoor Space Intimacy
Creating intimacy in an outdoor room can be a challenge. Consider clustering furniture into smaller conversation areas. Another option is to partition outdoor areas into defined rooms with walls. This can be done with items, such as a container garden, or block walls to create freestanding seat walls.
Final Design Touches
A cozy outdoor room, should be decorated as though it is an indoor room. Choose design factors that reflect your home's personality. Suggestions include garden containers, clocks, outdoor lanterns, and bird houses. If your outdoor room contains walls, you may also decorate the walls with a variety of items that will give the idea of bringing the indoors out.
