Outdoor spaces that are designed especially for the family to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine are popular these days. They offer a chance to change your location from indoors to outside without sacrificing too much in the way of convenience and comfort. The right kind of outdoor furniture plays a big part in ensuring your space is right for you, but you also have to design the space to suit your local climate, otherwise the best furniture will be of no use.
For instance, if you live in a temperate climate you will very likely be able to enjoy being outside for most of the year, although not always at night in the winter. Most temperate climates don’t have snow and there are many days in the winter that are sunny and mild enough to be outside.
In the summer, the days can be too hot for sitting in the sun, so your outdoor space will need some kind of shade. This can be from a nearby tree, a shade sail or a proper roof. You may also need protection from a prevailing cold or hot wind by adding a decorative wall or clear plastic blinds on that side. You could also add a chiminea or some other kind of heating to extend the length of time your outdoor space can be used for.
