Outdoor living is becoming a more and more popular trend with homeowners. It is a great way to spend a relaxing evening after a hard day’s work and a great place to entertain friends and neighbors.

Freestanding walls or fences

Walls and fences are usually designed to close things in but when it comes to outdoor rooms, they are simply used to create definition to your room. These walls are there to create uniformity but not obstruct pathways or lines of sight. It can be a short brick wall designed to create more sitting area or it can be the wall of an outdoor kitchen. They can be made of wood and siding and painted a loud color to make your sitting area really pop. Freestanding walls can simply border one-half of one side of a room or it can be a 90 degree wall in the corner. Fencing is also a great option as well, as it obstructs the view less and is often more affordable.

They provides sanctuary from the summer heat as well as a structure to hang your outdoor lights from. The Home Depot sells pergolas for the do it yourselfer or if you want it built on site, we can do that too.


Sheds and storage boxes

Storage is necessary when it comes to an outdoor room. Moisture can take its toll on even the most waterproof items. Deck boxes allow you to put the patio cushions in a safe dry place as well as things like charcoal if there is a grill present. Sheds can be dressed up to become part of your outdoor safe haven and be disguised to store things.


Patio sets

Every room in the house has furniture. Why would it be any different with your room outside? Perhaps the kids have gone off to college and you are simply looking for a bistro set to enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine with your spouse. Bistro sets are great for small balconies or porches. Perhaps a 7 piece dining set is ideal. These will seat six and are great for dinner outside with the kids or simply entertain guests. Seating sets with loveseats and coffee tables are good for simply enjoying the company of friends and family. You will for sure find whatever patio set reflects your lifestyle and needs.
