Fall is here! Finally the scorching summer temperatures are behind us and Memphians can actually enjoy the outdoors. At Regency, one of our most popular features is our Outdoor Living. Whatever size home you have, be sure that your outdoor space is livable, after all, it’s untapped square footage. Here are some ways to utilize your outdoor space.

{Rug Up} When you are decorating outdoors, don’t forget decorate as you would in an indoor space. Small tricks like adding color, defining seating areas, and anchoring your areas with a rug, can quickly transform your patio into true outdoor living. Be sure to purchase an outdoor rug that can hold up to weather. Wayfair carries hundreds of options at every price point with free shipping on most orders.
{Not Just for Dining} Don’t be matchy-matchy—create a space that is less formal than dining chairs. Don’t feel like you have to conform to a five-piece matching patio set. Look for furniture that adds a bit of whimsy and feels more like a living room to encourage chatting, snacking, and sipping. Scour local Craigslist or Facebook Resale Pages and think outside of the box!
{Never Underestimate Lighting} The right lighting makes your backyard really come alive at night. Using cafe lights on your patio umbrella, along your patio’s perimeter, or decorating a table with votives can really extend your evening. For some great tips on how to hang cafe lights, watch this video!
{Use Your Imagination} Adding just one key interest piece to your backyard can transform your backyard into the perfect place to entertain friends. Use your imagination and invest in a creative element that will entice your party to move outdoors. Great ideas include pizza ovens, fire pits, a beverage station, or a water feature.
