Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a outdoor living room and a patio? The answer: Livability. Up your outdoor living game this with the help of Anderson’s Masonry Hearth and Home.
An outdoor living room is more than just a cluster of plastic chairs with a coffee table. It’s a cozy space that creates a sense of relaxation, a space where people want to spend time both alone and in the company of friends and family. To create this effect, we encourage you to apply interior design methods to develop your outdoor space.
Let’s get started! What is the centerpiece of most indoor living rooms? The fireplace. Many times a fireplace is added to the living room to help heat the home. A fireplace is also added to homes for aesthetics and emotional reasons as well. Spending time with friends or family in front of a fire often creates a deeper connection with that person on an instinctual or even primal level.
The easiest way to create an emotional sense of warmth in an outdoor living room is to add a fire feature, which has the added benefit of physical warmth during the colder months or brisk summer evening. Use your outdoor living room year round, imagine warming up after a long day skiing with friends or roasting marshmallows in the summer.
When adding a fire feature to an outdoor living room, be sure to leave plenty of room for foot traffic and seating because it will instantly become the favorite gathering place. If it’s a wood-burning fire feature, it will also need to be an reasonable distance from any structures for safety. In fact, some cities have specific regulations about this, so be sure and do your research. Consider an outdoor gas fireplace for areas that do not allow wood burning.
Add the finish touches to your outdoor living room by, adding other interior design elements — such as outdoor tables, accent lighting, pillows and other accessories. But be warned, once you build a welcoming outdoor living room, get ready for guests!
