A logical place for an indoor bench is inside the front or back door. Its a place where we can sit down to change our shoes or put on our boots. If its got the proper storage, we can use it to tuck away the backpack that too often goes missing in the morning, or the library books that have to go back before we pay a fine. It becomes a regular stopping place when we get home or just before we leave for the day.
The living room should be a place for relaxing as well as housing everything from DVDs and games to books and magazines. Therefore it needs to have plenty of the right storage. Prevent overcrowding by looking for dual-purpose furniture: coffee tables with extra draws, shelving to hold books and accessories and large lidded baskets, which are perfect for storing throws and will double up as a side table.
Once you have decided on where to site your new outdoor living room, and those with those tiny yards may not have a choice, you can work on how to create the walls, floor, and even a ceiling. Your project has now become landscape design! You may need the advice of a garden designer at this point, or some great books on the subject to understand the materials that are used in building landscapes and how to use them to create enclosure, privacy and beauty.
Accessories While a bench is an accessory in itself, sometimes you may also wish to liven up the space even more with some accessories. Soft cushions or pillows can add some additional color to a bench, and they can make any bench become comfortable. If you are positive that you want to incorporate specific colors into the bench, then there is a very good chance that you will need to purchase cushions and pillows for it. Just remember that cushions and pillows are a great way to add even more personality to a bench.
Spend some time out there and identify just what are feels the best to you. Bring a chair outside and just sit in it in different spots until you get a feeling of being in the right spot. Then you must ask yourself, can this spot be turned into an outdoor living room? How will you connect it to visually to your house? Are there interior elements of your home that you can repeat outside? How will you connect your new outdoor living room physically to your house? How will get there from inside your house? There must be an easy way to go from inside to outside and back inside. I cant stress this aspect of the design enough so. Smooth transition between inside and out is how you start feeling like your outdoor living room is really just another room of your house; an extension of your home.
