August 4, 2020 Outdoor Design Ideas for the Great Outdoors

When designing an outdoor space, the visual aesthetic is often as important as the functionality of the space. Keeping that in mind, here is the ultimate checklist to find the perfect blend of visually appealing and functional outdoor space with outdoor furniture.

  • Provide Guests with Various Seating Options

Whether it be a personal lounger or a large table for dinner, multiple seating options to accommodate all sorts of events is crucial. Numerous types of seating will ensure you and your guests have the most functional outdoor area to enjoy no matter the occurrence.

  • Understand Building Orientation to the Sun

Shade is a defining feature for an outdoor experience encompassing luxury and comfort. When selecting outdoor furniture, shade distribution is just as important as visual aesthetic. Keep in mind the time of day and amount of sunlight that reaches your backyard. Shade structures and coverings allow you to extend the day regardless of the weather. However, they can also introduce visually enticing options for your overall look, such as the TUUCI Stingray Shade Sculpture.

  • Create a Seamless Indoor/Outdoor Visual Experience

Comfort is key. Even though people are outside, they want the comfort and luxury of feeling inside. When envisioning your space, consider a hospitality-like look and feel to combine the comfort of an indoor experience with the visually appealing look of an outdoor resort.

  • Consider Flexibility of Use

Especially in the time of Covid-19 and working from home, your outdoor space should be able to double as your workspace. Traditional backyards are no longer just for soaking up the sun, but instead can provide an escape from the monotony of your indoor life.

  • Consider the Climate

Conjuring the perfect outdoor space means understanding the type of weather that you and your furniture will be subjected to. Water resistance, durability, UV resistance, these are all criteria to consider when dividing your ideal outdoor area and bringing to life all your outdoor design ideas. Your outdoor space should be available for use regardless of the weather, so this is important to keep in mind.

  • Provide Power and Wi-Fi Access

Technological connection is at the core of everything we do. There are many ways to extend the power to your outdoor area either through power outlets or Wi-Fi extensions. Power can even be seamlessly integrated into your outdoor furniture. Take a look at the TUUCI Equinox Cabana. You can insert lights and plugs to stay connected even when outside.
