Arizonans love the weather, that’s one thing we can all agree upon. Living in Arizona is truly unique and not something to take for granted due to our year-round access to vitamin D and Instagrammable desert views.

Homeowners in Arizona know that outdoor living spaces are beautiful and stylish. Due to our hot summers and cold winters, it’s also crucial that the area is usable and well designed. Phoenix, for instance, can experience temperatures below freezing in January, while lower desert valleys can experience temperatures below 43°F.

Create an inviting outdoor living space that is both beautiful and functional by blending the inside and outside of your home.

You may want to add a few breathtaking decor items to your small patio or build a large outdoor area that serves almost as a second living room depending on how much space you have available. Regardless of the design, the goal is to create an outdoor living space that is as comfortable as the interior of your home.  

Small space ideas include:

  • Create a low-lit and enchanting atmosphere by hanging strings of lights or adding tiki torches
  • You can add visual interest to your patio by strategically placing beautiful plants, or by creating a brightly-coloured vertical garden 
  • Making your outdoor vibe match the architecture and/or your interior design style, whether it’s colourful Aztec décor or modern chic

It’s also essential to make your outdoor living space easily accessible as you design it! Depending on your layout, you’ll be able to determine what’s possible, but don’t be afraid to take chances. It is possible to connect your living area or kitchen with your patio through frameless glass doors. When open, you get a sense of spaciousness, but when closed, you’re protected from rain, wind, hot or cold temperatures, intruders, and objects with an invisible sound barrier.Right now, dual indoor/outdoor spaces are very popular, and they can even increase the value of your home.

You can also take advantage of your beautiful surroundings with frameless glass, whether you’re in a Phoenix high-rise overlooking the desert or the city.


To ensure your furniture will withstand the elements, you should also consider its design. A hot Arizona summer and a cold winter are all part of this, depending on where in the state you live. The challenge of moving the indoor vibe outside can be challenging for homeowners.

Also, don’t underestimate the importance of shade to protect your home as well as you and your guests. The added benefit of shade will allow you to spend more time enjoying the outdoors and breathing in that fresh Arizona air.

To create the most relaxing, sun-protected outdoor space, tap your inner interior design guru and get creative.

Lastly, you should not treat your outdoor living space differently than the rest of your house. Think about your needs, your space, how often you entertain, and what outdoor activities you might be doing. Other options include:

  • Griddle area
  • Children’s playground
  • Pools
  • An oasis of peace
  • Patch of vegetables
