Create the beauty and functionality you need to enjoy your home to the fullest.

Organization: Storage and Function

Organized space can have a significant impact on your overall well-being and productivity. It can help reduce stress and anxiety by creating a sense of order and control in your environment. An organized space makes it easier to find what you need, saving you time and energy. It also allows you to see what you have and prevents you from buying duplicates of items you already have. An organized space boosts confidence and motivation by making it easier to complete tasks and achieve goals. Additionally, organization creates a more pleasant and inviting atmosphere, making a more enjoyable living space.

Design: Indoors and Outside

Creating a comfortable living space includes the structure as well as the furnishing elements of the space. The art of interior design is to apply the principles of function to any style or space, in creative ways. Hartford Home Design works with clients to clearly define the function of a space and dig a little deeper to learn the good, bad and ugly of how the space really gets used. Then, they develop requirements of the space and design foundations, which serve as guideposts for infusing creativity into the design.

Working with an interior designer, like our friends at Hartford Home Design, can add significant value in creating a finished outdoor patio space that you’ll want to enjoy year-round. From planning outdoor kitchens to selecting and styling furniture, rugs, and other decorative elements, they are a valuable resource as you plan your outdoor living space. They have a keen eye for design and can help you choose pieces that are visually appealing as well as functional, durable, and comfortable. They can also help you create a cohesive look and feel for the space that reflects your personal style and enhances the overall aesthetic of your home. Additionally, an interior designer can help you make the most of your outdoor space by providing expert advice on layout, lighting, outdoor cooking, and other important design considerations.

Design: Indoors and Outside

Western Oregon has the most beautiful summers around. We live for those few sunny, gorgeous months. However, most of us do not think beyond that small window of time, relegating ourselves to the indoors the other eight to nine months of the year. We are tough folk, equipping our families to play sports, hike, ski, and enjoy the outdoors year-round. With a few investments, your outdoor living space can serve you more of the year. By adding motorized screens to an existing covered patio, you can keep out chilly winter wind, block afternoon summer sun, and keep your outdoor living space more temperate. If your patio or deck has no covered space, consider a StruXure adjustable pergola system. Made of industrial powder coated, aircraft-grade aluminum, open the louvers when you want sun, close them when you don’t. Infinitely customizable, add lights, fans, Bromic heaters, and Progressive MagnaTrack screens. Mount a television. Incorporate an outdoor kitchen or fireplace. Create the kind of backyard you’ll never want to leave. Call McKenzie Outdoor Living at 541-780-4835 to speak with a design specialist. Follow @mckenzieoutdoorliving to see our latest projects.
