Would you like ideas and expertise for a fabulous outdoor space?
There is nothing better than that first spring day when the weather finally feels warm enough to really spend time outdoors. On top of it, Montreal is a region known for its harsh winters so homeowners seem even more determined to enjoy outdoor living to the maximum.

Here are some of the factors to think about when planning your outdoor space
Try to define zones with a structure of some sort.
If our interior requires walls and a ceiling, so does the exterior, even if only partial. Without any structure at all you will feel very exposed, as well as lacking in references for the placement of the furniture. A simple wall or pergola can also provide shade and protection from the sun in addition to defining activity zones for each member of the family.
Have you thought about a water feature for your outdoor space?
Available in different styles, fountains can provide a sound screen from street noise, attract beautiful birds and butterflies, they create a focal point and, most importantly, inspire relaxation. For a more modern style, water walls that also light up at night are a great option.
Outdoor fire pits and fireplaces are a huge trend!
Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are also pretty amazing, whether they be custom made in tile or stone or the budget-friendly mobile ones available off the shelf. They are very inviting and they provide a little bit of heat for those cooler evenings, extending the season by a couple of months.
Outdoor kitchens and bars
Functional, good looking and durable outdoor counters, bars or islands should be built out of porcelain tiles, solid stone, or a more light-weight and economical stone veneer (the type used on fireplace feature walls).
In addition to the counter itself, a stainless steel BBQ or grill can be integrated as well as a small fridge. Counters are also great without all the bells and whistles, just add a couple of stools and you just created an inviting space for outdoor entertaining and dining.
