Regardless of the size of your home, everyone seems to need more space for living and entertaining, especially if you built your house with small cottage house plans. One way to get the sensation of more living space is to enhance your outdoor entertaining area. Below are some ideas about how to maximize the space outside your home.
Certainly small house floor plans have less square footage than luxury house floors plans, but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the benefits of entertaining at home. In more densely populated cities from Sydney to New York City, a small outdoor living space is considered another room of the home and used year round.
If outdoor entertaining conjures up images of massive homes inspired by southern living home plans and picnics with white linen table clothes, take a deep breath. Once you have the right space setup, outdoor entertaining is actually very simple to coordinate.
Whether it is a large patch of lawn under your favorite tree, or a backyard deck, first designate your outdoor living space. If you have an outdoor dining space that is easily accessible to your indoor dining space, you might want to consider just moving your dining room table outside in nice weather. This is a good option if you don’t have the money to invest in outdoor furniture.
