Outdoor Living Tips Other Remodelers Won’t Tell You

Are you planning to invest for an outdoor living space? Whether you choose to expand your backyard or improve your porch, MICHAEL NASH DESIGN, BUILD, AND HOMES offers these 10 tips for a successful outdoor living remodel.

Traffic Space

What good is a wide outdoor living space if the people in it can’t comfortably move around? Remember that your outdoor space will become more efficient if you have an established traffic space. The great thing is that you can always experiment with the pattern of your walkways.


There’s nothing more romantic than a vintage fireplace outdoors. A fireplace would be great not only for bringing people together, but also for reading books on your alone time. Check the building codes in your area regarding outdoor fireplaces before you spend your money.

Seat Variety

You may include different seating options. For kids, you may try lower and cushiony seats, high bar seats for adults, and one big couch in the middle. However, do not overload the chair options as it may look messy.

Focal Point

Every well-designed outdoor living spaces include one thing that would be the center of attraction – whether it’s a piece of art or a stylish table. This allows the human eyes to focus on something. Other homeowners even establish an attractive fish pond as an outdoor focal point.


You may not realize it, but every detail found on your outdoor space will make a huge impact on its visual appeal. Elegant-looking furniture pieces would always do great wonders as well. Make sure that your outdoor living space would be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

*Pro Tip: Ask for your designer’s advice but never compromise what you really want.
