Protect Your Furniture
You can take painstaking measures to make sure that you arrange your outdoor furniture so that it helps to open up your space and bring out your style – but none of that will matter if your furniture gets damaged at the first sign of rain. To help keep your outdoor furniture protected for as long as possible, look for pieces designed for outdoor use and made with durable materials such as weather-resistant wood and metal. Also consider durable furniture covers; in the long run, the more preventative measures you take now can save you the time, effort and money it takes to replace worn or damaged pieces down the road.
Get Creative in Corners
Even the smallest backyards tend to have more space than one might think. Often, awkward corners or hard-to-access pathways go overlooked. Instead of keeping them ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ call them out! Train the eye to look beyond the ‘usual’ limits of your backyard; place an attention-grabbing piece that draws the eye past the space immediately before it!
