Extend your living space and improve your home by adding outdoor furniture.The space you create can be as extreme as an outdoor bedroom surrounded by screened walls and a skylight for star watching or as simple as a place to picnic near a campfire.Contractors can create exotic outdoor living areas that you can furnish with outdoor bars, complete kitchens, weather resistant sofas and recliners, appliances and TV.

If your budget for outdoor furniture does not allow for something that extreme, you can find outdoor furniture at discount stores. Fabric gazebos and screened enclosures can be set up in any level part of your yard to house a table and chairs, picnic table or seating arrangement of lanai furniture.

Outdoor areas do increase the dollar value of your property, but they do enhance the desirability of a sale.
If your budget for an outdoor furnished area is not-existent, you can still create one. Outdoor furniture is often given away free on recycling web sites. In fact, you will often see perfectly good outdoor furniture on the side of the road on garbage day.

You might be surprised at what you can create by using scrap lumber and concrete blocks to make benches around a fire pit. Simply place some boards across 2 cement blocks and you have a bench. In another part of the yard, under some trees, set a few lawn chairs and a small table for a candle and a place to set drinks. A hammock for a bed can also create a desirable outdoor living space. Fabric, blankets, and bedspreads can be anchored to trees to create an exotic roof over your outdoor furniture.

Create more elegance in your outdoor furnished areas by adding potted plants, candles, strings of patio lights or gas torches. Umbrellas can be placed over a table or free-standing.

Build pathways that lead to your outdoor areas. Cobblestones, paving stones or even wood chips can lead the way from the house to your furnished outdoor living room. Line the pathway with solar walkway lights. Landscape the path with night blooming aromatic flowers.
