Extending your living space into your backyard can give you that extra needed area to relax and unwind. Even if your space is limited, you can design the area to feel like an extension of your home.
We know social media and magazines typically showcase expansive backyards with sprawling gardens and enormous patios. But, that’s just not the reality for many of us. Whether you’re a city-dweller, condo or townhouse occupant, or you just don’t have acres of land to design, you can still have a cute and cozy outside space.
Finding the right design for your outdoor area and lifestyle can sometimes be tough. It’s all about a balance between functional and cute that will ensure you have an area in which you can relax and de-stress.
