Get your Latimer Heights patio/balcony in perfect shape for a summer soiree

May 15, 2019

Your outdoor space at Latimer Heights in Langley is a fantastic place to kick back and relax at home on a nice day.

Many new homes for sale at Latimer Heights feature gorgeous back decks or front porches where you can host intimate summer soirees or simply sit and sip your coffee in the morning.

With a little imagination and warm weekend, you can easily transform your new deck or porch into the outdoor oasis of your dreams. Here are 12 tips to get you started.

1. Get comfortable with furniture

All you need to dine alfresco at your new Latimer Heights home is a small table and a set of chairs. Of course, this will also come in handy if you plan on hosting summer parties. The Wickertree Home and Patio and Coast Spas Lifestyles located in Langley both offer a wide selection of outdoor furniture.

2. Lighting solutions

For extra intimacy, try draping some string lights around your balcony. Whether it’s an old set of Christmas lights or big round bulbs, the glow will create a warm and welcoming outdoor space at your new Latimer Heights home. You can buy beautiful string lights in pretty much any hardware or big box store in Langley. Look for LEDs which are both energy efficient and have a long-life span.

3. Plant Something

If you’re pining for fragrant flowers or even fresh homegrown produce this summer, why not pick up a few planters, a bag of soil, and make some room on your deck at Latimer Heights for a garden. Gardening is both rewarding and relaxing, and all those plants will give you the feeling of being in an old growth forest, even though you’re only 15 minutes from downtown Langley.

4. Plenty of privacy

A privacy curtain on your front porch is a relaxing and stylish way to create a cosy little atrium at your new Latimer Heights home. Go for a fabric that provides UV 50+ protection. Vinyl, polyester, and cotton canvas are all good options.

5. Less rugged more rug

Immediately bring the feeling of a cosy indoor living room to your deck or porch with an outdoor rug. Natural fibers such as hemp and jute are strong and sustainable while less expensive synthetic coverings come in a wider range of bright colors and can easily be hosed down if they get dirty.
