Whether you have a large, spacious back yard or one with limited space, you can create an outdoor living space with an inviting atmosphere and relaxing ambiance. With some good planning and creative design tips, your back yard can become a beautiful, comfortable space where you will love to spend time with family and friends. Here are some important design tips to get you started.
Create Comfortable Seating Areas
Whether you plan to entertain or just relax with a good book, you will need comfortable seating areas. For casual conversations and relaxation, create a comfortable seating area with cozy lounge chairs and ottomans or a relaxing hammock for lazy afternoons. If you plan to entertain outdoors, create a cooking and dining area with an outdoor table and comfortable chairs that will provide adequate seating for family and guests. To provide functional surfaces and outdoor storage, consider small tables that can be moved easily and outdoor benches with storage underneath.
Provide Warmth and Cozy Ambiance
An outdoor fireplace or fire pit will provide warmth for chilly days, additional light for evenings, and cozy, inviting atmosphere. Consider these important design tips:
* Fireplace – An outdoor fireplace will cost more to build than a fire pit because it has a chimney that requires proper ventilation for safety. You will need a general contractor to get building permits and build an outdoor fireplace that complies with local code regulations.
* Fire Pit – A fire pit is built low to the ground and has no chimney, so it does not require safety ventilation, special features, or a building permit. It’s much less expensive and easier to build, and it can be installed anywhere in your back yard, even on an outdoor patio or deck.
Create Visual Interest in the Yard
If you want an outdoor living space that’s inviting, it’s important to create visual interest that draws attention to backyard features. You can do that by creating a unique focal point in the back yard and using outdoor lighting that highlights special landscaping features. To create visual interest, consider a beautiful garden area filled with seasonal flowers that will bloom year-round or fresh herbs that will be great for cooking. Outdoor water features create soothing sounds and relaxing atmosphere, so add a fountain or rock waterfall. To provide softness and light, add outdoor lighting that highlights landscape areas and other backyard features.
The world of dentistry is getting more and more advanced with every passing year. Dentists have figured out that the best way to provide better service to their clients is to utilize the best new technology on the market. Whether it’s figuring out how to make root canal therapy easier for patients or working on dental implants that look better, dentists have had to reform their own industry in response to calls from patients that things get better. Those that have a subscription to a local dental journal know good and well the hard work that dental professionals have been putting in over the last few years.
Dental professionals are currently working hard on two different types of technology. The first type is designed to make dentistry less painful and more palatable. Many people have stories about going to a bad dentist when they were young. They might have had a painful filling or a doctor who was a bit too rough with a needle. Because dentists often work with people who have innate fear of the process, they have to come up with ways to work around these issues. There is little sense in trying to convince people that dentistry isn’t scary. The better option is almost always to ensure that dentistry is as painless as possible.
Dentists are also working to ensure that their solutions are more aesthetically pleasing for patients. In the past, patients have shied away from dental implants because of the perception that implants don’t go with natural teeth. On top of that, some have brushed aside fillings because of the sense that fillings may be unsightly. Part of the dentist’s job is to help a person have the best looking smile possible. This requires dentists to care about more than just the health or pain outcomes for a patient. Whatever work they do must also look good.
Dentists know they have a challenge in front of them. If they want to win the trust of their clients, they need to come up with new and better ways to improve the overall experience. Coming up with methodology that is aesthetically pleasing is only one part of the duty. They must also work toward new methods of making dental processes as painless as possible. Good dental professionals around the world have been working hard to do just that.

Performance Artist, Argyle Brink, lives his life as one big art exhibit.

Only one thing has eluded him…fame.
In order to save her family’s estate, Malone Summersfield must never return to England.

The show takes on a life of its own, gaining ratings from the sparks between the two stars. Airing everything from their dirty laundry, to public sex in an abandoned zoo, and even living off the grid in a micro house, nothing is off limits.

With their marriage, their show, and her citizenship at stake, the two must decide if the ultimate truth lies in the art or in their love.
