If you have a big patio, use it! This isnât just a great place to barbeque- itâs also a great living space. Patio furniture makes outdoor living lively.
Have as much seating as possible to draw people outside, and accent your seating with side tables for beverages, books, and goodies. Keeping a couple of plate covers handy isnât a bad idea either.
If your patio gets a lot of afternoon sun, you can enjoy it without overheating! Try adding exterior solar screens for reduced heat and extra UV ray control. (Your skin will thank you!)
