Expand your living space with an outdoor living room

An outdoor living room is a great way to expand your living space. Image:

Adding an outdoor living room has become an increasingly popular home upgrade and it’s not hard to see why. To start, it’s a relatively straightforward — and stylish — way to give everyone in your home more room to spread out. Plus, it creates an additional area for you to entertain. If you have the room, there’s really no reason for your living space to stop at your back door.

As for how this space should look, that’s entirely up to you. Some are little more than artfully done seating areas that encourage conversation. Others are more extravagant, boasting everything from outdoor kitchens to huge television sets. However, there are a few features that the majority of these areas have in common.

If you’re thinking of adding a dash of design to your home’s outdoor space, you’re in the right place. We’ve compiled a few of the best outdoor living room ideas to help you get started. Take these and make them your own. There’s no wrong answer here.

Be sure to have comfy seating.

Comfy seating should be a top priority in your outdoor living room. Image:

Comfy seating is a must in an outdoor living room

We’ll let you in on a little secret: In spaces like these, seating is king. If there’s not plenty of room for people to sit and relax, it won’t matter what other features are added to the space. Proper seating, especially when its plush and unbelievably easy to stretch out on, is the thing that will ensure your outdoor living room gets plenty of use.

With that in mind, when designing your space, remember that comfort, quantity and size matter. Since outdoor furniture can also be a sizable investment, it’s crucial to know you’re buying a set that fits your needs. If you can, test out the furniture at the store before you make a purchase and match the pieces’ dimensions against measurements of the space where you’ll be putting it. If you’re buying online, be sure to read reviews so you’ll know the product meets your expectations.

Once you get your outdoor furniture home, it’s all about the placement. Seating works best when arranged into small groups that allow people to gather and talk. For personal use, one seating area will suffice, but if you entertain often, you may want do consider creating multiple areas.

Create your own comfy seating space with these similar products:




Outdoor fireplaces can be a focal point.

Use an outdoor fireplace as your focal point. Image:

Add a heat source

Keep in mind that most seating areas are arranged around a particular focal point, or a design element that draws the eye. Where outdoor living rooms are concerned, a heat source like a small firepit or larger built-in fireplace is a particularly good choice.

Not only will this feature lend a sense of drama to the space, but it’s also incredibly utilitarian. Adding a heat source to your outdoor area will increase the amount of time you can spend enjoying it. It will allow you to weather chilly nights and seasonal changes that would otherwise render the area unusable.

That said, live flames aren’t the right fit for everyone. Families with young children or those who simply don’t want to take the risk should look into purchasing a heat lamp. They typically run off of propane and, in the past few years, have become increasingly easy to find in home improvement stores like .

Add your own heating source with these similar products:








A covering will expand the space's use.

Consider adding a covering to expand the outdoor living room’s use in varying weather. Image:

Consider a covering

In addition to adding a heat source, you’ll also be able to extend the utility of your outdoor living room if you include a covering from the elements. Though the amount of coverage you’ll receive depends largely on the which type of covering you choose, it’s safe to say that you and your guests will certainly appreciate it in less-than-ideal weather. This design element will come in handy when facing everything from scorching heat to heavy winds and even rain.

When shopping for coverings, there are plenty of options to choose from. Recently, pergolas like the one shown in the picture above have seen a spike in popularity. However, umbrellas, awnings, lanais or even indoor-outdoor sunrooms are on the list of potential options.

Since coverings often require building an additional structure, your best bet is to hire a qualified contractor. Be honest with them about how you’d ideally like to use the space, as well as your budget. They’ll be able to recommend the type of covering the best suits your needs.

Find the right covering for your space with these similar products:




Mix and match different patterns and textures.

Mix patterns, colors and textures

Once you have all of your desired features in place, your next task is to turn an eye to interior design. For the most part, the same rules apply to any space, regardless of whether it’s within walls or not. However, outdoor living rooms do have a few unique considerations you’ll want to be aware of as you’re bringing your vision to life.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is that, since outdoor seating is often sold as a unit, it can look monotonous if left alone. You’ll need to add in other design elements with a variety of patterns, colors and textures to create visual interest.

Adding in textiles like accent pillows or an outdoor rug is a great choice because they can bring in lots of visual interest, but can be easily switched out as trends change. Incorporating different types of greenery is another natural choice since you are in nature. Even structural elements like pathways, decks and patios can play a role in your design, if you choose complementary materials and finishes.

Bring in various patterns, colors and textures with these products:








Get creative with your outdoor ling space.

An outdoor living room is what you make it. Use your imagination. Image:

Outdoor living rooms are an area of your home that can truly be tailored to individual tastes. Some are simple and cozy while others are extravagant undertakings that feature plenty of high-end amenities. In fact, there are so many choices available that it can be difficult to determine where to start. Use this guide as a resource to help you take the first step in your design and we know that the finished product will quickly become your new favorite spot.

Located in Lima, Peru, The Living House portrays energy and fluidity. The house was designed by  for a family of frequent travelers.

The house’s layout supports this energy of movement, with sweeping open spaces and long pathways, allowing energy to flow freely throughout. Completed in 2016, it’s 530 square meters (5,700 square feet) of dynamic space, with an invisible staircase connecting both spacious floors.

While the interior is impressive, The Living House derives its name from the exterior design. Using photography as a tool, there are two human bodies imposed into the architecture — one is sleeping, at rest, with weight distributed evenly across the surface.

The other is a person about to take a step, in a fixed place, but with the intention and suggestion of movement. Two static cubed pillars represent this support, making the house appear still only for the time being, ready to continue its journey at any moment.

Wallpaper is back.

Wallpaper is back — and there’s no limit to where it can go. Image:

Believe it or not, wallpaper is back! We know the idea may be a little hard to wrap your head around, but trust us when we tell you that the 2017 wallpaper trends are worlds away from the relics you remember from Grandma’s house.

Gone are the days of seeing a whole room swallowed by big floral prints and oppressively dark hues. Instead, today’s take on wallpaper is much more subtle. These days, less is more, neutral shades are in, and the pattern options are entirely up to you.

If you’re still not convinced, read on. We’ve outlined a few of the hottest 2017 wallpaper trends, as well as how to incorporate them into your design. Keep an open mind. By the end, you might just end up being wallpaper’s newest fan.

Graphic wallpaper can determine the feel of a space.

Graphic wallpaper can be either bold or subtle. Image:

Geometric wallpaper

Remember that all trends are cyclical. With the ’70s vibe that’s been all over the stores lately, it’s not hard to see why geometric patterns are back in a big way. When used correctly, they easily achieve the delicate balance of creating visual interest without becoming too overwhelming.

This is because, on the one hand, geometric patterns are often bold enough to draw the eye without much effort. On the other, the rigid structure of a geometric design helps to simultaneously put our minds at ease.

To use this trend successfully, keep in mind that size is key. Make sure to pick a pattern that is comparable in scale to the room you’ll be decorating. You should also allow the room to guide your color choice. Neutral colors like black or gray can add a subtle and sophisticated feel to bedrooms and living spaces. Meanwhile, bolder hues are perfect for livening up playrooms.

Digital wallpaper lets you choose the images.

Digital print wallpaper

For those who are serious about creating one-of-a kind designs, digital printing may just be your favorite 2017 wallpaper trend. This process puts you in the driver’s seat by letting you create wallpaper from any image your heart desires. Essentially, this trend gives you complete authority over how the finished product looks.

As for how it’s done, the process is actually fairly simple. All you need to do is get in contact with a company — like . — that provides these services. Once you send off the high-resolution photo of your choice, they’ll likely send you a few proofs to test out the look before printing the final version on large panels that adhere to your walls.

But, by far the coolest feature of wallpaper’s technology upgrade? Your pick won’t necessarily need to stick around forever. Many digital wallpaper companies will also print on alternative materials like fabric or vinyl. When combined with a lower-grade adhesive, these materials can peel off the wall whenever you’re ready for a change.

Metallic wallpaper works well in neutrals.

Metallic wallpaper

If sleek and elegant designs are a must in your home, metallic wallpaper should be high up on your list of considerations. The slight shine these wallpapers give off is enough to add a luxe feel to any space, at a comparatively low price point.

Placement and quantity are your biggest concern when choosing a metallic wallpaper. Since these prints tend to have a stately quality to them, they are a natural choice for more formal spaces like dining rooms or foyers. However, as long as the quantity of wallpaper you’re using is also taken into account, they can be worked into just about any space.

Since metallic wallpapers tend to be a bolder choice, less is sometimes more. If covering the space wall-to-wall is your goal, then stick to smaller spaces like bathrooms. (The light reflected by the metallics can actually help them appear larger!) In more spacious rooms, you can keep the print from becoming overwhelming by just covering one wall and making that the focal point.

Wallpaper is for more than just walls.

Don’t limit wallpaper to just lining the walls. Image:

2017 wallpaper trends go beyond the wall

That’s right — one of the most popular 2017 wallpaper trends is to use the stuff anywhere but on your walls. This is one occasion where you can really let your imagination run wild, but in case you need a little help to get started, here are some of the best ideas we’ve found:

  • Put wallpaper behind shelves: Consider using one of the room’s accent colors to tie everything together.
  • Hang wallpaper in framesEspecially useful with gallery walls, this allows you to experiment with multiple types of prints and patterns as art. Plus, you can switch out the look anytime you’re ready for something new.
  • Line your drawers with wallpaper: After all, there’s no reason for the inside to be boring.
  • Spruce up a boring piece of furniture: If you have a plain piece of furniture like a dresser or bookcase that could use more than a coat of paint, try covering it in wallpaper to give it a pop of pattern.
  • Cover your book displaysWe’ve all see those incredibly eye-catching bookshelf displays, but the reality is, it’s incredibly hard to find sets of books that match so well. Create your own by covering these displays in coordinating patterns and colors.
  • Give your coffee table a creative top: This one works best for tables with a protective glass layer, so if you have one, feel free to put a coordinating sheet underneath the glass to add visual interest.
  • Breathe new life into plain chairs: If your chairs could use a new look, cover the seat and backrest in an interesting pattern that catches the eye.
  • Make a wall hanging: Tapestries are in, but there’s no reason to shell out big bucks for one. With a little wallpaper, some dowel rods, and ribbon, you can just as easily make your own.
Today's designs give wallpaper a modern twist.

Consider trying wallpaper with a modern twist. Image:

There’s no denying that wallpaper is back. However, clearly, today’s designs are worlds away from what we all remember from the past. If we’ve convinced you to give one or two of these 2017 wallpaper trends a try, keep this guide handy. Use it to help make your next big design project a breeze.

This remodeled apartment sits in a prime location, right in the heart of Budapest. This vantage point offers stellar views of the city, including the historic and beautiful Parliament building, while the terrace has a calming view of the nearby river.

The brainchild of , there are several signature touches the designers left behind. Energetic colors, whimsical details and large windows with natural light create a joyful atmosphere. The rug in the living room is shaped like a map of Budapest, with a small red dot showing the location of the apartment.

A living green wall brightens up the living space. The pleasing ambiance and meta decorations, as well as the living wall, are subtle but brightening.

The two levels of this 110 square meter (1,200 square foot) apartment hold the spacious living room, two bedrooms and a study, as well as a terrace that allows you to look out over the boats sailing on the Danube.

The living room boasts an enormous window to view the cityscape below. Almost like a cinema screen, residents can watch the city as it changes from night to day.
