Life looks a little different right now, but spring and summer are still coming right on schedule. And while nothing compares to backyard BBQs with friends and family, you can still (safely!) enjoy sunshine and warmer temps in the homebound days ahead. In fact, if there was ever a time to show your outdoor space some extra love, it’s now.

Whether you’re staring out the window at a teensy-tiny balcony, a sprawling backyard, or something in between, QVC has just what you need to make your outdoor space your new go-to spot. Use these three mood boards to turn it into the extra room you’ve been wanting.

#1: Balcony BBQ

You might feel like your balcony barely has room for a bird to land on, but with a few smart items, you can maximize your square footage and your warm-weather enjoyment. Start with a well-designed dinette like this Safavieh set: It’s slim and stores easily, and the table can fold into a cabinet for double-duty design. Then, fire up a mini grill like this nimble number by Char-Broil, which fits on most any tabletop. Add a picnic caddy to corral utensils, napkins, and condiments, and you’ll have plenty of space for an impromptu BBQ.

#2: Patio Greenspace

We can’t give you a lush green paradise, but we can help you fake one. Start with eye-catching and easy plants like this mix of tropical succulents. (Bonus: Succulents are a cinch to propagate, so you’ll have a garden full of them in no time.) Display your new greenery on a natural shelf like the eucalyptus 4-tier shelf by Safavieh. You’ll need somewhere to sit and admire your handiwork; we recommend the beach vibes of these foldable sling chairs. Not a green thumb? We have you covered: This handsome faux palm will fool all your friends on Zoom.

#3: Backyard Oasis

If you’re lucky enough to have a lawn to work with, now is the time to deck it out! One of the best ways to turn your backyard into a room you love is to decorate it as you would a room. Start with a bold outdoor area rug, like this fade-resistant Jacquard design. Next, you need something to gather ’round: We love this fire pit for turning cool spring nights into cozy outdoor hours. And once the temps rise, you’d better believe we’re going to reading in this huge hammock all summer long.
