As temperatures rise and the weather gets warmer, outdoor spaces naturally beckon to us. The spectacular view of the vibrant blossoming flowers and the irresistible smell of barbecues lure us into spending more time outdoors with friends and family.
Here are some tips to help you create the outdoor space of your dreams!
Before choosing your outdoor furniture, you should have a well-defined plan for your space. You should think about the intended use, layout and surroundings of your outdoor space. Consider how the outdoor space will be used, whether you intend to use it for dining, relaxing, entertaining or some combination of all three. The layout of your outdoor area should have a logical and functional connection. Don’t forget to make the most of the views your home has to offer, think about how your planned outdoor space fits into its surrounding environment.
When choosing outdoor furniture, it's important to keep in mind various factors, such as comfort, functionality, quality in addition to size and materials. Make sure your outdoor furniture is durable and weather friendly to withstand all kinds of weather and last for years to come.
Lighting is a great way to create a welcoming and inviting ambience. It’s an important aspect of outdoor entertaining in order to make your guests feel comfortable sticking around even after the sun sets. You can use string lights, decorative lanterns, outdoor wall lighting or landscape lighting to create visual interest and expand the feel of the space.
Adding plants does wonders in bringing life to your space. You can choose easy-care greenery in and around your outdoor living space for a low-maintenance area. Consider landscaping your outdoor space with plants that naturally repel insects such as lavender, lemongrass or rosemary. Plants also work great for zoning out an area of your backyard or giving your outdoor space some privacy, thus mimicking the functions of indoor walls without making your space feel closed.
Adding functional and aesthetically pleasing accessories can make your outdoor space more welcoming. When designing your outdoor space, incorporate a vibrant summery color palette into your accessories to create a cheerful and carefree atmosphere. Accent pillows with tropical or floral patterns add a cozy and uplifting vibe to the space.
Don’t let a hot summer day keep you from enjoying the outdoors. With the right items, you can keep your outdoor space functional and enjoyable no matter what the weather brings. Outdoor umbrellas can create a cool, dynamic vibe while giving you a break from the summer heat.
Whether you want to have a relaxed morning breakfast, enjoy the sunlight and boost your vitamin D, host a full-fledged dinner party or zone out and connect with nature, having a relaxed and inviting outdoor oasis is a must.
