Oak Park is getting some brief glimpses of spring. Now is the time to spruce up your back porch to make it that great outdoor space to help you enjoy the good weather (once it gets here!)
Many of Oak Park’s vintage apartments come with back porches. Those back porches are covered nooks that, with a little inspiration and creativity, can be converted into an outdoor oasis.
- First, know how much space you have to work with.
- Be mindful of other tenants and what space is truly yours to call your own.
- Next, decide how you want the space used … would you prefer to dine al fresco, lounge outside with a good book or create a garden get-away?
- Depending on your budget set about to fill your space.
- Last and most importantly – sit back, relax and enjoy the warm weather!
