Personalizing your Patio to Increase Living Space

In Apartment Living, Decor by Adam's Crossing Apartments

Every inch matters in apartment living. Regardless of your floor plan, each patio or balcony at Adam’s Crossing measures 10’8” by 7’8” — too much space to not take into consideration when decorating your affordable luxury apartment! Let’s take a look at how you can personalize your patio at Adam’s Crossing to make the most of your square footage.

How to Personalize Your Patio

Fill it with Furniture

To truly make your patio feel like a continuation of your apartment, you need furniture. The end of the summer is a great time to purchase outdoor furniture, both online and in stores. Indoor/outdoor rugs provide color and soften the space. As autumn air begins to chill outdoor surfaces, the rugs will also keep your toes toasty. If you anticipate enjoying meals on your patio, a bistro dining set is an essential investment. On the other hand, if you only plan to drink your morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine, rocking chairs, Adirondack chairs, or wicker lounge chairs will meet your needs. Add coordinating cushions, pillows, and a cozy throw for those cool, late-summer nights.

Go Green

Plants bring life to your patio or balcony. Incorporate texture and tranquility into your blooming outdoor oasis by grouping plants together. When making your plant selection, consider the amount of sunlight reaching your patio. This will determine the variety of plants best suited for your space. Indoor plants can be moved outdoors during warm weather if placed out of direct sunlight.

Light It Up

Give your patio a warm, gentle glow at night with lights. Select twinkle lights to provide a magical aura, and choose either outdoor flameless candles or a lantern for your table centerpiece. When possible, opt for lighting with automatic timer settings for convenience and electricity conservation.

Personalize the Place

Finally, make the space uniquely yours by incorporating accessories that fit your style. Create the illusion of a larger space with mirrors, and add artwork that coordinates with your cushions, pillows, and rug. A water feature provides movement and a peaceful sound to mask any unwanted external noise. Ensure the accessories you select are suitable for outdoors.
