Nate says another way to make great use of your space is to bring the insideā€¦out. More and more American families are expanding their living spaces right into their backyards. From kitchens to fireplaces to beds, the sky is the limit when it comes to outdoor living.

Home supply companies are getting in on the action too. Some of Nate's favorite purchases include all-weather lighting, rugs and artwork. One of Oprah's favorite ideas is to incorporate an outdoor fire pit, which you can find for less than $100!

"The great thing too, Oprah, is outdoor furniture is starting to feel more like indoor furniture. It's not your old patio furniture that's uncomfortable anymore," Nate says. "The quality's better, the cushions are thicker, the fabric is stain-resistant and fade-resistant."

Special thanks to those who made this show possible.
