Transforming your outdoor hospitality area at a hotel, restaurant, college campus, or other commercial spaces into an inviting sanctuary combines design and comfort. Explore key factors such as outdoor patio furniture, color scheme, decor, lighting options, greenery, fans, or heaters. These elements can help create an inviting and relaxing ambiance for guests. At Outdoor Elements, we provide luxury commercial patio covers for your seasonal needs.
Furniture and Layout
Choosing the right outdoor patio furniture involves a blend of practicality, aesthetics, and your brand. Select pieces that complement your outdoor area’s style and function. Comfortable seating, weather-resistant cushions, and versatile tables invite relaxation with meals, cocktails, or informal meetings. Consider the layout of your space. Arrange furniture and other decorative elements to ensure a smooth flow that encourages movement and interaction. Keep pathways clear and position seating areas to optimize both comfort and conversation.
Greenery and Landscaping
Plants are the heart of any outdoor space. From potted plants and hanging baskets to flower beds and shrubs, introduce greenery that highlights the natural flora of your geographical area. Native plants are low maintenance—you can create depth and interest by combining different heights and textures. Shrubs add definition or privacy. In the northeast, strive for a mix of deciduous, broadleaf, evergreen, and coniferous varieties. Consider the Abelia, the Rose of Sharon, or Honeysuckle if your commercial space is out west in drier climates.
Color and Aesthetics
Select colors and styles that align with your indoor aesthetic. Neutral tones create a timeless look, while vibrant hues add a pop of personality. The key to a successful color scheme is balance. You can incorporate a dominant and a secondary accent color for visual appeal. Also, consider the landscaping and architectural features to ensure your chosen colors harmonize with the existing environment.
Focal Points and Accents
Introduce focal points that draw the eye and add character to your space. This could be a sculptural element or a stunning piece of outdoor art. Accents like lanterns, rugs, cushions, and decorative objects contribute to the ambiance, add visual interest, and anchor the design. Create a hospitality space that invites your clients or customers to relax, dine, and socialize in style.
Finally, every outdoor space deserves exceptional lighting. Your guests should feel comfortable at any time of day or night. At Outdoor Elements, our integrated pergola lighting systems combine cutting-edge innovation with industry-leading quality to bring any Outdoor Elements pergola to life. Customizable, energy-efficient, and built to last, they’re the perfect finishing touch to any covered patio.
