Need to add some space to your place? Using outdoor patios and balconies for more than just a place to put flower pots means the sky’s the limit when entertaining your guests.
Who wouldn’t want to hang out with Erin Skurdal at Portside Towers, in Jersey City, NJ and bask in the incredible views? Comfortable, well-maintained furniture lets everyone enjoy the spectacular surroundings for hours at a time.
Speaking of views, it’s hard to beat the skyline outside the patio of Randy and Rick Bier’s place at Portside Towers. Here, a cabaret table complements the low-slung lounge chairs, making it the perfect place to host a simple brunch or catch some rays on a summer afternoon.
But you don’t need a cityscape to make the balcony the best room in the house. At Fairfield in Stamford, CT, Rebecca Rehm added just a few pieces of colorful furniture to her wooden deck, creating the perfect place for a glass of wine at the end of a busy day.
