Is your outdoor space crying out for a makeover? Having an outdoor space that is both inviting and functional can greatly enhance your living space, acting as an outdoor living room. 

A well-thought-out outdoor space also allows you to make the most of sunny spring and summer days as well as crisp cooler weather. At Infinity Furniture, we stock a huge range of outdoor furniture suited to the ever-changing Australian climate. 

So how do you create a dream outdoor living area that you’ll never want to leave? Let’s take a look at what you should be considering so you can enjoy an outdoor space that is ready to be used all year round. 

Key Points To Consider

When it comes to creating an inviting outdoor space, there are a few things to keep in mind to ensure your space serves you well for many years to come.  

Climate

First, consider the climate in your area. If you live in an area with hot summers, you’ll want to focus on furniture that can withstand the heat. At Infinity Furniture, we carry a variety of materials that are perfect for warm weather, including wicker, rattan, and teak.

If you live in a colder climate, you’ll want to focus on furniture that can withstand the cold. Infinity Furniture’s cold weather range includes a variety of materials including aluminium, stainless steel, and cast iron.

Comfort

The best way to ensure your space is inviting is to opt for comfortable outdoor furniture. This could mean using reclining sun lounges, soft outdoor cushions, low coffee tables for drinks and more. 

Using outdoor rugs to define outdoor spaces and create a more cosy atmosphere can also be beneficial when creating an inviting outdoor living space. 

Upkeep

Opting for the correct furniture for your space and intended usage can help you avoid ongoing upkeep. Nothing is less inviting than dirty furniture or cushions with mildew. 

If your furniture is going to be consistently exposed to the weather, choose items that can be easily cleaned or will withstand this exposure. An inviting space is one you can use anytime without needing to spend hours cleaning first. 

Durable, easy-to-maintain furniture is always a win as it is not only easy to enjoy but should last for many years to come.  

Safety 

A fire pit is seriously inviting on cooler days and nights. For safety reasons and comfort,  be sure that your space allows for enough fresh air to pass through and ample distance from the fire pit. 

A fire pit should be used with caution under a covered patio. Always use with proper ventilation and be mindful of placement to avoid safety risks. We recommend reviewing manufacturer directions and ensuring the minimum advised ceiling height is followed. 

Area Size

If you have a small area, creating a cosy inviting space can be quite easy to achieve with less furniture and decorative items. Having said that, be sure not to crowd the space as this can quickly make it feel too busy and less inviting. 

For large spaces, you will need to work a little harder on filling the seating area appropriately to ensure it doesn’t feel too large. Should you have an outdoor kitchen, outdoor dining and seating area, work on keeping these spaces defined but complementing one another. Use furniture from the same range or same materials to make the space feel more relaxed and welcoming. 

Extras 

Aside from comfortable, well-selected furniture the addition of some decorative extras can help to elevate your space. Consider adding outdoor lighting such as string lights or carefully placed spotlights in the garden. 

Outdoor rugs, pot plants, cushions and more can also contribute to the creation of a warm, inviting space. For those exposed and hot sunny spots, a patio umbrella is essential. By including a patio umbrella in your space you can enjoy summer barbeques with friends and family in a lovely shaded dining area. 

Style 

Finally, choose pieces that fit your style. Infinity Furniture has a wide variety of styles to choose from, so you’re sure to find the perfect piece for your home that matches your preferred aesthetic.
