As summer slips away and we start thinking about how and where we’re going to store our outdoor furniture, it occurred to us that moving it into the house rather than into the storage shed might not be such a bad idea.
After all, we could cover it up with an old, moldy tarp, or we could find a use for it elsewhere. The question is whether it will work in the space.
Outdoor Bar Stools
Outdoor bar stools almost always work both indoors and out. But, what if the only bar you have is the one outside?
Not a problem! There are always plenty of ways to make use of extra seating. Create a hangout in the kitchen, add a back row for watching TV/movies in the living room or arrange them along the wall to grab for any occasion.
It’s understood that rocking chairs may not even be part of your outdoor furniture lineup – but they should be! Why popularity has waned is a mystery, but you can help mount a rocking comeback, so to speak.
Keep in mind that rocking chairs don’t need to have that Abe Lincoln vibe, even when it comes to the outdoor variety. You can reverse engineer your plan by choosing a style that matches your interior and then using it outside.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find an outdoor rug that can’t also be used indoors, unless it’s too dirty, in which case you can just clean it. That’s what puts the “outdoor” in outdoor rugs; they’re easy to clean!
And, they’re also very durable. So, if you’re looking for a rug that can do double duty in a high-traffic area, consider investing in an outdoor rug with a style that works well in your home.
Have fun making the most out of your outdoor furniture style, even after the summer sun sets.
