Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

Outdoor Living for Tennessee Fall

As the seasons change it’s a good time to consider outdoor living spaces for Tennessee’s fall months.

Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens are more popular than ever. They’re a great place to cook and socialize simultaneously in an open-air space. Depending on your level of dedication to your culinary skills, your outdoor kitchen may include an oven, refrigerators, an island, and a seating area. Or, you can scale back and install an outdoor grill. Either way, cooking outside keeps unnecessary heat from competing with your air-conditioner on warm summer nights.

Fire Pits

Fire pits have become quite trendy with a variety of styles and sizes available at your local home improvement store or a with a click of the mouse on Amazon. Additionally, there are countless YouTube videos with instructions for building your fire pit. The ambiance of the fire makes for a great quiet evening or the centerpiece of a social gathering. 

Landscaping

Most new construction homes come with some landscaping. Creating a beautiful landscape around your home takes planning and time. When viewing your landscape, determine where you have full sun and partial sun, and plant appropriately. Determine where you want to have more shade and consider fast-growing trees with a canopy. Create islands within your yard with winding paths and water features. With vision, planning, and a willingness to work hard (or hire it out) you can create a desirable landscape that will enhance the curb appeal of your home, and its desirability.

Add More Opportunities to Hang Items

Hooks are the easiest way to add surface area to a bathroom without actually adding a real countertop surface area. Use hooks for everything from clothes to bathrobes to towels. Place hooks on the back of the door, on the side of cabinets, or on unused sections of walls.

Include More Mirrors in the Bathroom

Most people think of mirrors in bathrooms only for checking makeup or primping hair. But it’s also important to think of mirrors in bathrooms as design elements that expand the room visually and add light to the room. Many homeowners like to add a second mirror in addition to the primary mirror located above the bathroom sink.

Protect the Lower Section of the Wall

Beadboard has two great functions. First, where appropriate, it creates an antique look and it is so easy to install. Also, beadboard performs the very valuable function of protecting the lower section of the walls from the inevitable splashes of water that occur in bathrooms from the tub or shower. A good coat of oil-based paint ensures that the beadboard will be impervious to moisture. If beadboard does not fit your room, consider adding tile wainscot on the bottom 40 to 48 inches of the wall. Tile, too, serves the same purpose of protecting the walls against moisture, and it had an infinite range of style possibilities.

Bathroom Lighting Matters

In a room where people need to inspect their hair and faces, lighting is usually very dim and concentrated only in one spot. This is obviously from a ceiling fixture. At the very least, consider adding lighting around the bathroom mirror in the form of sconces. But blinding light is not always wanted. A very simple device that can add mood to your bathroom is a dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is perfect for late-night relaxing baths.

Add Freestanding Pieces

If space permits, many home decorators recommend having one freestanding piece. A piece such as a decorative chair or cupboard as a design element. To compensate for that space, you can recess other practical elements such as clothes hampers or move the hamper to another room. This decorative piece, of course, can also serve a practical use as a place to store towels, soaps, or other small items.
