Kristina Kinakin's insight:

Don`t forget to consider the location of the outdoor living space & the purposes of the outdoor space. Will it be in full sun every afternoon, will you need to source some sort of shading/privacy products such as retractable screens; also, will you primarily use the space for cooking and entertaining, or relaxing in private?

Combining Outdoor Living with a High-Tech Media Experience | Outdoor living | Scoop.it
... during the dog days of summer – dreamt of something a little more than that: they wanted an entertainment space that combined all of the comforts of a high-tech indoor media room with the perks of their outdoor lifestyle.
