Have you been missing out on summer fun because your outdoor space lacks function, comfort or ambiance? Don’t fret, you still have the remainder of summer to enjoy your backyard, patio or porch with a few key updates that can transform the whole space. Whether you want your space party-ready or create a relaxing oasis for yourself, these tips will surely guide you in the right direction. Remember to have fun with it!
- Create comfort outdoors. Your Outdoor space should be an extension of your indoor living environment. If you expect to have guests over for an extended period of time outside, you need to have comfortable chairs or couches. Depending on your space try a comfy outdoor sectional. This piece allows for ample room and comfort for all. Adding a canopy to your outdoor experience provides shade during the day and depth to your backyard. Create your comfortable and relaxing oasis with signature pieces such as these.
- Enhance your lighting. Lighting can truly enhance your space. A string of paper lantern lights or bulbs can give your patio warmth and a unique touch that regular light fixtures lack. Pathways, steps and trees are other elements of your outdoor space where you can incorporate lighting. This type of lighting not only provides an artistic element, but also serves as home security.
- Purchase transitional pieces. A fire pit serves multiple purposes throughout the year. Keeping away bugs during summer nights and providing warmth as temperatures dip, fire pits are useful as well as unique decorative pieces.
- Update existing furniture. If you’re tired of the same old look of your furniture try refinishing or painting them a new color. This is definitely a cost-effective approach to enhancing the feel of your space. Playful pillows can also create ambiance and that summer-feel you’re looking for.
