A patio living room can be used for outdoor entertainment all year long, not just for summer. This outdoor living area needs to have some comfortable outdoor furniture for you, your family and friends who come visiting during the summer months. You can even include a patio kitchen for some casual dining. An outdoor patio living room can even add more square footage to your home.
This outdoor room can be a comfortable addition right outside your backdoor or you can install a pathway of bricks, stones, or pavers leading to an area in the middle of your garden. You can hire it out but you get a feeling of satisfaction when you do it yourself.
Pavers can be purchased in the sizes, shapes and colors that match the exterior of your house and complement your landscape. This outdoor patio room should be on a level surface such as a patio or deck and the pathways leading to it should be wide enough for two people to walk safely side by side.
This outdoor room needs to be covered with some type of protection from the heat and rays of the sun. Some suggestions are to build a roof or pergola, purchase some umbrellas, or install an awning. One idea for a roll out awning that can be attached to the house or garage wall that will protect your from the sun and the rain. Patio umbrellas are another option as they come in various sizes, shapes and color. These umbrellas and awnings come in many different fabric designs and colors to coordinate with the colors and designs on your outdoor furnishings.
