Outdoor living space is the addition to your home. It is considering a popular home upgrading project to many. It can be a small outdoor area, or it can go as elaborated as your budget could accommodate. If stage and plan properly, it can be an oasis right out of your door.
Outdoor living space or room is different from a patio. It is not adjoining to your back door but a secluded living area away from your house. It can be designed complimenting the décor of your home or you can set it up to make it look like a calming Japanese Garden, dynamic Chinese dynasty, sexy Victorian Style, lively Latin atmosphere or even an exotic gypsy setting.
If budget is your constraint, just get some reasonable lawn chairs, canopy or giant umbrella, portable fireplace, mobile barbeque grill, cooler, add a few pots of plants and flowers and play some music relaxing into the evening.
Some people convert their garage to the outdoor living space and better still the roof top of your house gazing into the stars at night. It can also be as simple as just a porch with retractable awning.

Refrigerator, bar area and entertainment center are the optional but would be ideal.
To complete the look of a tasteful outdoor living space that has a kitchen, I strongly suggested that you pick a durable furnishing and a nice dining table with extra cozy cushion seating area for guests to mingle around. If possible, throw in a fireplace and chimenea. The heat will be appreciated in the cold spring or fall evening thus, extending the usage period of your investment.
I personally preferred the shaded outdoor living space that has a removable enclosure. So that, I can enjoy my creation in any season of the year if it is not thundering storming, hitting by a hail or spinning by a tornado. When it is chilling, I enclosed all the doors and drag an infra-red space heater to keep me warm. And when it is hot in the summer, I air out the room with giant misty fan.
