258 Outdoor Living Room Ideas
Outdoor living rooms take dining and entertaining in the open one step further, with a setup that allows you to lounge for long periods outside. A patio, porch or courtyard usually provides the blank canvas you need for additional furnishings and comfortable furniture to transform a casual alfresco area into a living room. This is an especially suitable option for homeowners who live in a mild climate.
To make the leap from patio to living room, add cohesive layers of accessories. The details will enliven the space with a sense of coziness and ease. For example, add cushions of different texture on your sofa. The more comfortable and plush, the better. There is no rule that says that accessories outside the house should be made of a tougher material as long as you have sufficient shelter.
As with a living room indoors, your outdoor living room will benefit from having a feature piece. It could be a light fixture, sculpture, plant or even a vintage sign that blends in with the rest of the design style.
Lastly, keep the space comfortable by adding a fan or a fireplace. Invest also in good both task and mood lighting, which will be especially welcomed in the short winter days.
