Do you want to turn the patio space into a permanent four-season living space, or only temporarily, such as only during the summer months?
An outdoor temporary living space
You could get some comfy patio furniture to make it cozy
A couple of chaise lounges would be wonderful and comfy.
Hi Shanda - This is how we transformed our back porch from a sad storage space to a gorgeous and relaxing oasis. I hope this helps with some inspiration. Hugs, Holly
I love the accent of the Pepsi crate on the table. Nice choice.
Not knowing what you’ve got there now-
I would buy or make a large canopy and cover it in shade tarps that are like giant screens- so that the breeze blows through but not the insects.
Harbor Freight has those types of tarps and their 25% off coupons are plentiful.
Thanks a bunch!
For any surfaces that are covered with fabric, such as furniture or cushions, I would recommend that they be sprayed with Scotchguard outdoor fabric spray. Although it will not make the fabric entirely waterproof (like solid vinyl) it will greatly improve the fabric's ability to repel water droplets, and to resist staining.
What a fun project to have :) Check all those ideas https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=patio%20into%20living%20space&rs=typed&term_meta=patio%7Ctyped&term_meta=into%7Ctyped&term_meta=living%7Ctyped&term_meta=space%7Ctyped
There are some good ideas here on how to lay out your outdoor living space.
There are also some great outdoor living space ideas here.
Thank you Lauren.
Add a rug, table, chairs and or settee. A screen or two and a few plants would help.
Are you looking for a full season conversion or just the summertime one.
A screen porch could be a wonderful addition to our home. We favor the screen tight system. Our contractor used this Screen tight system it is diy friendly. Much more attractive than conventional roll and staple screening. We have repaired a damaged screen ourselves. I recommend looking at this system- components.
Hi! maybe this will help
We added a pergola to our patio space and we just love how it looks and the extra shade it provides!
