DECOR IDEAS FOR YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE

Outdoor artwork and patio accessories can be the difference between an outdoor living space that is good versus one that is downright stunning. Outdoor decor and art create a distinctive and finished look that is reflective of your personality and lifestyle.

Placement is key with outdoor sculpture so consider the space. Will the piece be seen from inside or is it selected primarily for its look while outside? Will it be viewed from up close or from far away? Some pieces are kinetic, meaning they move with the slightest breeze, and some are reflective of light and water. Outdoor lighting will enhance your outdoor art piece at night. 

A blank fence or house / garage wall is the perfect canvas on which to place a piece of outdoor wall art. A single object - or a minimal collection of similar objects – will create a focal point, which is especially key when opposite a door or window. The Climbing Man sculpture and Hanging Orb planters can work singly, or together, depending on the size and configuration of the space.

 An outdoor wall art panel such as the one below - fabricated of steel in a custom-designed floral pattern - is ideal if you need to create a privacy screen or a piece of artwork to obscure an undesirable view.

Also consider adding some outdoor accessories, any type of garden décor that would add beauty and personality. A light touch is necessary so choose and display them carefully. Garden spheres are terrific, on a patio or in the landscape, surrounded by plants. Concrete, glazed in multiple colors or hollow, with a string of lights inside, spheres can add a modern feel to any outdoor areas.

 Lanterns are another great way to bring color and ambiance to the patio. Either on a table top or on the floor, they look good during broad daylight, and at night, their silhouette brings warmth and sparkle.

OUTDOOR FIRE PITS

Nothing evokes after-hours ambiance like a fire. It is the source of heat, light and sociability, and fire pits make it possible for most everyone to enjoy those beautiful attributes outside their own homes. Outdoor fire pits are available in a multitude of sizes, shapes and finishes. Below are a few some samples of fire pit and fire bowl that Creative Living is proud to offer:

FUEL SOURCE
If you have the ability to access and trench to your residential gas meter, you are lucky indeed. A certified plumber can install a gas line that will make the operation of your fire pit a snap.
If your only choice is propane, you can choose either remotely located propane tank, or hidden propane tank configuration. An outdoor fire pit with a propane tank contained within the base, accessible via a hinged door will sit slightly higher than it's remotely-fueled cousin - about 24" to 26" -  but is still a comfortable height, suitable also as a low table. With hidden propane tank source, the fire pit can change location more easily than one with an underground fuel line connection.

 SHAPE
Think of an outdoor fire pit / fire bowl as the outdoor equivalent of an indoor coffee table. If your furnishings consist of individual chairs, a round fire pit will provide the most flexibility in arrangement of those chairs around its perimeter. If modular components - an L-shaped outdoor couch with a chaise, or built-in benches - a square or rectangular fire pit may suit the configuration more smoothly. Allow clearance between the edge of the fire pit and seating for leg room and circulation (18" is typical).

FINISH
Fire pits / fire bowl are fabricated in a range of materials, from concrete to steel to aluminum. Choose the finish that suits your taste and lifestyle, as well as your tolerance for maintenance. If your outdoor living area is in a corrosive environment such as salt air, or if the fire pit sits on a porous surface that is easily stained, powder coating a metal structure will protect the fire pit and surrounding area. Concrete fire pits are beautiful, but require a little bit more maintenance. You might have to seal it once a year and cover it during winter seasons.

Planters can be used to increase the curb appeal of your home, to create privacy or just simply to divide the space. You can fill the pots with attractive plants and colorful flowers or just place them empty in the neglected area of your patio. If you are planning to establish a container garden, remember that the happiness and health of your garden will depend on their growing zones. It is not all about choosing plants to be put in the planters but also choosing the materials that suit the weather. For smaller outdoor spaces tall and narrow garden pots work very well, they help to save the space and still enrich the area with some living plants.

 When you are planning your outdoor living space, think if you want to add color with the planters and choose more simple plant material or have the pots blend in with your patio but pop some color with bright flowers.

Outdoor planters can be placed in groupings or just as singles.
