您的家具花园房

Although the summer solstice falls on June 21, I think of Memorial Day as the introduction of summer in my zone 8A garden.

During summer our indoor activities such as dining and entertaining move outdoors so it just makes sense to have an area set up to enjoy them. In just a few easy steps a patio, porch or secluded spot in the garden can become an extension of your home’s interior spaces.

其中一个给室外室内充足的室内魅力的最简单的方法是添加一些“傻瓜的眼”的内部元素,如地毯,靠垫等内部配件。随着今天的耐候性面料和装饰,你可以通过以下一些简单的窍门创建在任何时候时尚的场景。

Define the Space with a RugDefine the Space with an Outdoor Rug
一个户外rug will give your setting an instant indoor feel, plus the edges of the rug create the illusion of four walls. Furnishings arranged around the rug further re-enforce this illusion.

关爱室外地毯通常是很容易的,因为他们往往采用耐用的天然纤维或合成材料。您可以喷射断开地毯用软管或用刷子扫帚清洁。为防止发霉,挂地毯在椅子或栏杆雨后干,哪怕是从防霉材料制成。这将允许双方空气流通,从而加快了干燥时间。如果地毯不能回升,只是回滚的边缘。

Spruce Up Furniture家具
Too often outdoor furnishings fail to rise to the same level of comfort and style as interior rooms. Break the “white plastic chair syndrome” by finding outdoor furniture that serves as a better reflection of your home’s décor. Garage sales, antique stores and home improvement centers offer a wide variety of options.

It’s easy to give your garden furniture new life with a coat of paint. First evaluate the material you are working with – is it man made or natural? Then pick an appropriate paint that can withstand the weather. Once the paint is dry coat it with a water seal to give it a longer life. Metal furnishings can be sandblasted and taken to a powder coating shop where a virtually indestructible layer of paint is applied. Wooden pieces should be given protection during the cold, wet months and may require touch ups from time to time.

When choosing colors for your setting, the basic rules apply – vibrant reds, oranges and yellow draw the eye, while cooler hues such as soft blues, pinks and purples increase the sense of space. Furniture in bright colors is best placed in areas where you want to make a deliberate statement such as eye-catching red chairs against a dark green hedge. In a muted green, the same set will blend in with its surroundings.

Use Bright Fabric面料
Fabric stores are stocking more and more indoor-outdoor fabric that’s brighter than ever before. What’s great about using this type of fabric is that it has been tested for years in marine environments so you know you’re getting a product that can really take the elements.

考虑使用坐垫套,你可以滑过草坪现有家具靠垫。在需要时,您可以在洗把这些,他们可以很容易地改变从今年你的花园空间,一年的外观。如果你不是一个裁缝,而是想尝试做枕巾切出,可以围绕枕头包裹织物的“信封”。使用自粘魔术贴贴上信封标签一起。

Colorful tablecloths are an even easier way to add bold splashes of color. Again, if you aren’t into sewing use pinking shears to trim the edges of the fabric to create a clean line.

小屋棚架或小屋
The “must have” accessory for gardeners with a little extra room is a covered place to create an outdoor space. Fabric cabanas and pergolas are popping up everywhere. I was impressed with the price range – anywhere from $150 to the thousands of dollars depending on the size and style you choose. As added bonus these structures can be outfitted with mosquito netting to block out these little pests.

Accessories
室外设置是为您的花园房去选择配件时,将提高体验项目取悦感官如此量身定做。舞台上的灯光是必须的。Lighting Created AmbianceString up lights and set out candles. Battery operated LED lighting is a fun new option that takes away the need for outdoor electricity and you can get LED tea candles; they look like the real thing, but won’t extinguish when the wind blows. Don’t forget plants. Fragrant flowers and soft, fuzzy foliage will add to the ambiance. A table top water fountain, wind chimes or music will create soft sounds to block out street noises.

As the weather warms and you start spending more time outdoors rethink the place where you live and look for opportunities to set the stage, if you will, and push the boundaries of your home past the walls of your house and out into the landscape beyond.
