Zoning your outdoor space with the careful arrangement of furniture is a great way to designate entertainment areas. How can you help your space multitask? Situate a large, cushy sofa facing a TV. Section-off your dining space, placing a table set atop an oversized area rug. Situate four multipurpose cushion stools around a checkers or chessboard. Hang a hammock screened by large potted plants for a separate relaxation zone. Any way you slice up your space, zoning is a tremendous way to maximize available square footage no matter your patio size.

Think Creatively When it Comes to Seating

When it comes to outdoor living, often times you have to get creative to have the amenities you need nearby, but not exposed. This is where multipurpose seating such as storage ottomans and chest-style seating shine, multitasking as a place to stash your stuff. Tired of the same-old seating fare? Think beyond the typical wicker and rattan configurations, using seating as a design element by choosing uniquely shaped arrangements: Let the arms of a circular sofa curl around your guests, invite them to cuddle up in a bowl-chair, or add an interesting yet functional conversation piece with an artificial grass sofa or chair set.

Take Your Greenery to New Heights

Living greenery walls can quickly transform even the most barren outdoor space into a lush garden. In many different styles from full wall hanging systems to picture-frame-like plant holders, glass terrariums and simple clay pots, the sky is (quite literally) the limit.

As long as you keep the gutters as well as the louvered pergola motors free from obstruction, climbing plants are a great addition to any Arcadia pergola.

Add Warmth and Ambiance with a Fire Feature

Many of today’s most popular patio additions feature festive fire features, from full-sized, stone-encased wood burners to small, portable propane-powered gas fireplace tables and modern fire pits.

Open a Window

Outdoor living area share a wall with your kitchen? Add or make use of an existing window, turning it into a multifunctional feature: Open it to your deck or patio, creating a pass-through for beverages and food. Place a small countertop and stool-style seating just beneath it, turning the space into a simple bar.

Think Beyond the Grill

Instead of leaving your grill as a lonely fixture amidst your outdoor accouterments, create a more functional cooking area by surrounding it with a permanent prep space. Then, add a cohesive feel with a simple outdoor dining set and area rug addition.
