OutsideModern was started in late 2015 by patio designer Eric Clark and friends. It started out as a fun project promoting outdoor lifestyle, modern design, and small space living. It has grown into a valuable resource for those looking for ideas, inspiration, and strategies for embracing those unused outdoor spaces.
Many homeowners neglect their outdoor spaces, especially those of us who live in dense, urban areas without much lawn and garden area to work with. But the reality is that the possibilities of these spaces are quite significant! And even if small, these areas can be a real asset to a homeowner.
By creatively using your outdoor space, you can essentially add “living” space to your house without building any walls! Clean up that old patio, lay some new flooring, maybe put up a pergola. All of these tasks are not terribly expensive, but the end result will be additional space that you can use for outdoor living during a significant portion of the year.
And yes, in many areas, the weather is such that it’s tough to use the patio. But with some creative solutions, even those in northern climates can enjoy their outdoor areas for much of the year.
So dig around the site, grab some inspiration, and start thinking about how you can upgrade your outdoor space! Whether you don’t want to spend a dime, or you plan to go wild on the ultimate outdoor extravaganza, there is plenty to find here. We have lots of tips, guides, product recommendations, and maintenance info to turn your patio into the ultimate Outside Modern space.
We hope you enjoy this blog, and please drop us a line if you have any questions!
