When you’re enjoying the beauty of the shoreline, there’s no better place to take in the ocean view than from your own patio. You can turn a simple deck into a relaxing outdoor living room with attractive and functional furniture to keep your family and friends comfortable. Consider the following decor tips from Coastal Living when creating your ocean oasis.
- Natural Light – Choose space-conscious pieces, arranging them so they don’t block coastal views or keep sunshine from lighting up the room.
- Keep it Simple – The best feature of your outdoor living room is its waterfront view, so choose neutral and white decor items, so your space doesn’t detract from the setting.
- Dine, Talk, Play – You can add an eating area, umbrellas or a ping pong table to the standard sofa-and-coffee-table setup to make your room multi-functional for all ages in your family.
Design your look by perusing our patio and outdoor furniture collection and choosing pieces that reflect your perspective.
