Feel the weather
Every part of the globe definitely has a unique weather pattern. Get acquainted with how the weather changes in your area and get a good feel of it. Knowing this will greatly help you examine other considerations for the space that you are planning such as the material of any furniture to be used as well as the overall look and feel of the area.
Keep it real – measure your space
You may fall in love with a fabulous sofa, but if it will eat up 90 percent of your outdoor space then you might have to reconsider purchasing it. Putting everything in black and white is the best way to go. Measure the size of your space to really know what you’re working with. This will also be of great help in our next tip.
Visualize and plan
Taking an objective look at your space through measuring is most useful in putting together a layout or design plan. Visualization allows you to create 3D images of not only the type of furniture you hope to find but its actual placement as well. When you’ve captured the vivid images that you want, it’s time to plot them on paper. Drawing boxes, circles, stars or any other shape of your preference would do. You don’t need to be a professional interior designer to play this part.
Make comfort non-negotiable
Remember that the main reason why you want to have an outdoor space is to create a sanctuary that’s within your reach. With that said, make sure that you are comfortable with everything you place in the area, from the tables and seats to the paint, rugs and accessories used – they should make you feel relaxed and well, comfortable.
And after all your hard work to bring this outdoor getaway space to life, ensure that you get to keep it that way for the longest time. Formosa covers offer a wide range of quality patio furniture covers that can keep your outdoor investments safe – rain or shine.
