If you’re lucky enough to have some
outdoor space as part of your home then you need to take full advantage of it.
And eating meals outdoors is one of life’s simple pleasures. So make sure you
include some outdoor dining space! My favorite is building a pergola over
top of your eating area. It can be open and simple and modern like this. Or one
that is a little more traditional covered with climbing greenery like this. Maybe you’ve got room for an actual
dining room? I love this… why not turn an old shed into a great dining room. A new
coat of paint, some large doors that open out and furnishings that make you think
twice about where you are. It’s the perfect indoor/outdoor feeling. But let’s
say you need something that is really simple and easy to do?
I’ve got a great option for you too! Patio lights! Specifically outdoor string lights strung above the eating area creates the illusion of a roof over your head
without the difficulties of structure and expensive carpentry it really helps
to define the space. Day or night, that little eating area is perfectly outdoor-licious. But seriously, there’s nothing wrong with this either… a great
tablecloth on a picnic table is really all you need! I wouldn’t say no to that
invitation. So here is your take away… Some of the best outdoor spaces include
dining spaces. Covered or not, structurally complex or not. Celebrate
one of life’s simple pleasures with outdoor dining! Thanks for watching this
