New Home Developments in Chicago | Summer Patio Tips

For anyone that has recently moved into new home developments in Chicago, now is the time to prepare your patio or balcony to get the most enjoyment out of the summer months ahead. Here are three ways to quickly transform your outdoor living space:




Wood and wicker are great options for outdoor furniture and their durability will ensure that they last for many seasons to come. Accessorize with colorful, comfortable cushions and pillows to create a warm, inviting look. If you have space, opt for a living room style set-up with a couch, two chairs, and a table.




Transform your patio or balcony space into a lush jungle. Invest in some small ferns, trees, and succulents that will do well with your exposure. If you have a lot of direct sun, make sure to select plants that thrive on it and likewise, if your patio is in the shade, select plants that prefer shade and cooler environments.




No outdoor living space for new home developments in Chicago is complete without a good quality sound system. There is a wide range of wireless, outdoor speakers available that are compact and do not take up much space. Make sure to prepare some summer inspired playlists to have handy for when entertaining guests.
