How To Create An Outdoor Space

by Olga Rodriguez 01/28/2019

Choosing outdoor furniture for your home can be a challenging task. You might not even know where to start. What type of furniture do you need? What colors should you choose? The process doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you take it step by step, and look at your own needs, the process will be easier for you. 


Pick Your Colors


The outdoors have a bit more flexibility than the indoors of your home. There are no wall colors to worry about, only the natural landscape and the shade of your deck. You can choose from a spectrum of colors to suit the feel you want to create in your outdoor space. Color will provide everything from a fun party atmosphere to a classy, refined outdoor space. Don’t be afraid to mix and match as well.


The Outdoors Are Your Indoors


If you have the style of your home down to a science, don’t be afraid to carry that look over to the outside of your home. You can use the same types of fabric textures and colors. Keep in mind that you’ll want a more durable fabric since your furniture may be exposed to the elements. 


Use the same design principles outdoors that you would with your indoor furniture. If you have an outdoor fireplace, for example, you can use that as a focal point to gather your furniture around. Don’t be afraid to have a setup similar to that of your living room including a coffee table, sofa-like chair, and other cozy seating.       


Keep It Visually Stimulating


Just like the inside of your home, the outside of your home is also a reflection of your personality. You can embrace the feeling of fun, bright colors, and contrasting shades. Use what makes you happy and the rest of the design will fall into place! 


Remember one of the simplest design principles when designing your outdoor space- use throw pillows! Throw pillows can add so much to a space. Find colors that bring out the best in your outdoor furniture and desired color patterns. When it comes to the outdoors, know that the bolder you go, the better your space will be! 


Forget The Rules


Your outdoor space is a place where you can just “forget the rules.” Go with what feels right for you. The outdoor space is less “stuffy” than the indoors. Not that the inside of your home isn’t comfortable, but the outdoors is a place where an “anything goes” attitude can really work for you.

Olga L. Rodriguez, Realtor I am a customer-service-oriented real estate agent who helps home buyers and sellers in Florida, in the cities of Miami, Kendall, Coral Gables, Hialeah, Palmetto Bay and Miami Beach. If you're looking for an agent with patience, perseverance, and a passion for helping people, you've just found her! My working experience I received my real estate license in 1986. Since that time I have worked in the real estate field both part time and full time. When raising my children I worked as a teacher and part time real estate agent. I have also worked as a real estate paralegal, and appraiser. Working as a teacher I learned the skills of patience, perseverance, and being organized. My paralegal experience allows me to efficiently explain legal documents to my clients. The knowledge that I gained from working as an appraiser allows me accurately price the homes of my sellers and advice my buyers on the price of their purchases. My love for math, negotiating, business and my passion for helping people has led to choose real estate as my preferred profession. As a realtor I can truly say, "I love my job”. What Makes Me Different from Other Agents Service: I strive to exceed my clients' expectations in all aspects of the real estate process by providing excellent customer service and effective negotiating practices. Education: Success in real estate starts with education. You have to understand the nuances of the local market, the dynamics of supply and demand, and how these things affect buyers and sellers. I make sure that my buyers and sellers are well informed at every step of the process, so they can make smart decisions. Contact: Buyers, sellers and renters have a lot of questions during their real estate transaction. I let them know what is happening every step of the way during their real estate transaction. I am available at all times and can be reached by phone, text, or email. A Smoother, Less Stressful Real Estate Experience Buying, selling or renting a home can be exciting, but it can also be stressful. That's why I work extra hard to keep my clients informed, and to make the process as smooth as possible. In my free time I enjoy traveling, visiting new cities, states and countries. I also enjoy swimming, cycling, and boating.
