Prepare your outdoor space! – Parksville Qualicum Beach News
Summer is coming… are you ready?
If your outdoor space isn’t all you want it to be, now’s the time to spruce things up! Of course, that starts with thinking about what you’re looking for – what will help you make the most of summer from your porch or patio?
To get some ideas on how to achieve this, we visited the local experts at Combs Junction Furniture for their practical advice on how to prepare for the patio season…
Be ready – Start by thinking about how you used your patio, porch or garden last year and how it could be improved. Maybe your wish list includes a new umbrella to provide valuable afternoon shade, or more comfortable seating for longer reading breaks. Don’t forget a table for your lemonade!
“We find that for most families, outdoor dining and seating are two key elements to spending the summer outdoors. With patio season coming, it’s time to create a space you’ll use and enjoy,” says Parry Gallagher, owner of Coombs Junction Furniture.
Put on – Consider the essentials, such as comfortable chairs or an outdoor section, a dining area that suits your needs, whether it’s a bistro set for two or a full family-sized dining area, and access to sun or shade as needed, with a flexible, portable market umbrella.
If your space feels too cramped once you’ve added your herb planters and flower baskets, consider new seating that lets you navigate a smaller space better.
And, because outdoor furniture is exposed to the elements, as well as regular use, it’s important to select quality parts that are built to last in our West Coast environment.
To go! – Finally, add those special details that will make your outdoor living space more inviting. A gas or propane fire pit will allow you to extend the party into the evening and create a cozy setting for your morning coffee, and lighting – crucial for any space, indoors or out – will add both atmosphere and functionality when the sun goes down.
Whether you’re adding the finishing touches or creating a complete outdoor living space from scratch, the team at Coombs Junction Furniture and Mattress, along with BC’s Ratanathe #1 name in outdoor furniture, will have you sitting looking great in no time, offering timeless furniture in contemporary, traditional and transitional styles.
