Outdoor LivingIn the last few decades, the trend for home-building has been to have larger homes on smaller lots. While this enables us to showcase areas like kitchens and bathrooms that were once hidden in corners and behind walls, it can occasionally leave us lacking in square footage for any outdoor activities. If you’re wondering if you can have a beautiful outdoor living space in a petite yard, here at Lake Norman Signature Pools & Patios, we unequivocally say yes!

The key to making the most out of your outdoor living space is to be careful in your selections. This applies to furniture, recreational elements, and many other pieces of the design. When choosing your furniture, pavers, pools and other outdoor living components, take as much time considering the options as you would when designing the inside of your home, since outdoor living should feel like an extension of your home. Meeting with one of our qualified designers can ensure that you’re getting the most out of every square foot of your yard and no space will be lost as dead space.

Something that will instantly make your outdoor living space feel smaller is clutter, so avoid it at all costs. Furniture that doubles as storage can make this task far more manageable. Additionally, keep in mind that more isn’t always better! Too much furniture in a space can make it feel cramped, so pick items that can serve more than one purpose when possible.
