Amp Up Your Backyard Style
Looking to refresh your outdoor space? No matter the season or space limitations, check out these quick and easy ideas to turn your backyard into a year-round oasis.
Do your weekends consist of grassy games of fetch out back with your pup? Or perhaps a glass of wine with friends on a covered patio? Regardless of your outdoor uses, every living space needs furniture. If you are tired of your current outdoor style, a simple fix is to upgrade your seating. Outdoor furniture is easily accessible at a variety of stores, all at various price points. Determine the sort of seating you need, whether it be a large sofa or a space-saving swinging chair, and then start shopping. Keep in mind comfort and practicality while searching, along with color tones that will last year-round. For example, consider neutral sofa cushions that you can re-style all year long with seasonal pillows. Throw in some all-weather blankets to keep you and your guests comfortable and on-trend.
Turn Up the Heat
Regardless of the season, everyone loves to gather around the fire for a warm and cozy night. Consider adding a fire pit, outdoor fireplace, or decorative fire screen to your backyard to increase both style and ambiance for year-round nightly entertaining. You can also increase the heat with an outdoor kitchen salsa bar, or stoke the flames with spicy chops atop a grill.
Enhance your backyard with natural landscape upgrades. Consider replacing old patches of grass, planting fresh beds of flowers, or installing a new sprinkler system to keep things green and healthy. If you aren’t a natural green thumb, consider adding a few low maintenance hanging plants to your patio area instead.
Bring your family and friends together all year long with a refreshed outdoor space. Whether it be updated furniture, new décor, or bright landscaping, all backyards hold hidden potential for major wow factor.
