5 Verandas We’d Love to Stay In
Bask in the great outdoors and learn how you can liven up this cozy spot at home
Five days of sitting in front of the computer, talking on the phone, or dealing with tons of work can be exhausting. On weekends, we simply want to do nothing and enjoy some quiet time with the family. If your house has an outdoor area where you can hang out and meditate, you need to make sure that it's kept clean and serene.
Maintain your own tranquil escape by improving this quaint spot with a few decorating ideas. Here are five spaces that will surely inspire and motivate you:
Keep it simple
To create a soothing vibe, you don't have to buy huge pieces of furniture and fill the space with accessories. Take inspiration from this outdoor nook designed by interior designer Anla Li-Tan. It features an outdoor living set from S&R. You can also visit department stores and shopping centers for affordable yet chic furniture finds.
Choose only the essentials that can help you enjoy the downtime. Opt for comfy sofas and a sturdy table. You can also have floor pillows and throws.
Pick a theme
A cozy outdoor area can also be the perfect living room extension where you can entertain friends and guests. Depending on the theme of the interiors, you can also channel your personality in this part of the house. If you're thinking of going Mediterranean, this space is your perfect peg. Consider having colorful accessories and furnishings for a laid-back feel.
