Why Outdoor Living on the Costa del Sol

by Mad About Furniture |2 March 2021 | Blog

We love living on the Costa del Sol for many reasons such as the people, the food, the shops, the mountains, the beach and of course the weather. It’s not called the Costa del Sol for nothing, and the indoor-outdoor living possibilities here are beyond compare! That’s why here at Mad About Furniture, our expert interior designers are expert exterior designers, too! We take great pride in being able to create a stunning look and feel to any home, both indoors and out, while still giving every home a unique personality that expresses yours. How, you might ask? Simple: We take the time to get to know you, your home (and the spaces within it), and your inspirations, working with you to design something that you truely love, always using quality furniture that meets your desires and your needs.

When it comes to outdoor living, we have a huge range of outdoor furniture, meaning we can co-ordinate your outdoor spaces to match your home’s interior, seamlessly blending the two and creating the perfect outdoor living extension to your home. Be it a small holiday rental or a large family villa -and everything in between, we have some truely stunning outdoor furniture pieces to suit every type of home.

Outdoor Sofas

An ideal outdoor furniture option for larger terraces or gardens, outdoor sofas offer additional seating space but perhaps more importantly, give homes a real outdoor living room or lounge space, perfect for soaking up the sun and breathtaking scenery, all from the comfort of home -perhaps with a glass of Spanish sangria in hand?

Outdoor Dining Sets

A leisurely, alfresco family meal is hard to beat and is why an outdoor dining set is a must-have piece of furniture for any home. Large homes can take full advantage of outdoor dining with a complete outdoor kitchen or BBQ of course, but even more modest homes can reap the benefits of outdoor dining with a terrace table and chairs, perfect for a morning tea or coffee and croissant while reading the paper or scrolling through your Facebook and Instagram feeds (P.S. You’re following Mad About Furniture, right?)

Sun Loungers

An afternoon by the pool, a nap in the sun or shade, or even an evening cocktail on one of our warm Costa del Sol evenings require a lounger, and we have an extensive collection of options to meet everyone’s needs and tastes. From lounge chairs to daybeds, your next staycation (or even just ‘me time’ moment of zen!) deserves a sun lounger, especially when they are as comfortable and stylish as the one’s Mad About Furniture has in stock!

Creating Your Own Exterior Design Style

Like the interior of your home, your garden, terrace, patio, or other outdoor space should reflect your personal style. So first and foremost, when designing your outdoor living spaces, always keep your likes and dislikes in mind. You’ll want to give your outdoor spaces a distinct outdoor living feel (firepits or fireplaces, plants, barbeque or outdoor kitchen, rock or stone, decking, zen gardens, fountains, etc are all great ways to achieve this), but you’ll also want to co-ordinate any outdoor elements, especially furniture, with your interior design. Importantly, make sure any furniture you place outside is weather-resistant for sun as well as rain, wind and cold, and consider having a fan as well as an outdoor heater as part of your design to be able to utilize your outdoor living spaces year-round. Don’t forget to add ambiance with lighting, some fun with funky or colourful art, cushions, or other accessories like a hookah shischa pipe or hammock, practicality with side tables and outdoor storage, and comfort with an outdoor rug, insect-repellent candles or plants, and perhaps even an outdoor television.
