5 Must-Haves to Create a Relaxing Outdoor Space



 

Comfortable Outdoor Furniture

A yard can be the perfect place to relax with family and friends. Transforming your space into a beautiful, outdoor paradise where everyone can escape the stress of daily life is easier than you think. You can build a spot that matches your home's interior or choose unique decor and accessories for a completely different look and feel. Follow these simple tips to create a lovely oasis as part of your outdoor space.

1. Comfy Outdoor Furniture

Whether you want a full outdoor sofa or a glider on the porch, you can choose from amongst a wide variety of patio furniture that suits your tastes. Wicker couches can be adorned with colorful cushions for a vibrant vibe while wrought iron glass tables are classy and formal. Consider sets that reflect your personal style and fit into your vision for the atmosphere you're trying to achieve. Exquisite, outdoor fabrics can be maintained with stain-resistant sprays and furniture can be stored away during the winter season.

2. Outdoor Lighting that Lights Up Your Life

Lighting plays a major role in setting a mood or tone for decor. Invest in yard lights that match the theme of your outdoor oasis to enrich the beauty of all your handpicked designs. LED candles add a lovely, starry effect when placed at different points across your patio, or you could choose to go with a single chandelier that can hang above your sit-out area. Garden lanterns are also the ideal choice to accent your flower beds and supplement that much needed glow post dusk. No matter which you select, the right lighting can complete the entire look.

When it gets chilly and the leaves start turning brown, an outdoor heating is the perfect way to ensure that you don't have to move the party indoors. Fire pits and patio heaters are available in sophisticated designs that not only keep you warm but also enhance your patio's setup. The cozy and homely ambiance lets you enjoy being outside even when the temperature begins to dip.

4. Decorative Decor

Lawn decor is a very important part of building a visually appealing yard. Statues, fountains and colored rocks can completely alter your backyard and turn it into a magical place, full of wonder and delight. You can place a stone fountain in front of a wall of flowers or a few garden gnomes around your shrubbery. Play with positions and placement till you achieve the theme you're looking for.

5. Stylish Planters

Planters are a great way to accentuate existing design elements or add a dash of charm to your yard. You can opt for terra cotta pots or wicker stands full of pretty plants to bring life to your deck. These outdoor elements help to create the perfect summer setting for cookouts and get-togethers with family and friends. You can place your planters on your window sill, across your garden or line the edges of your patio.
