Have you ever had a vacation at home? Have you ever thought about a possibility to have one? You can have your own little island, where you can escape form busy life and just enjoy fresh air, peace and tranquility. We will give you several hints on how to turn your ‘outdoor space’, patio, deck, and back yard into relaxing zone with a well-chosen furniture.
Backyard furniture and your excellent choice
Furnishing an garden space can be very challenging, as outdoor possibilities are endless. It is important to think and imagine your outdoor space, have a clear vision for what purpose you need it. Would you like to have friends over, or would it be a dining area? Would you like to host birthdays and parties there or just relax after a hard working day? Make list of all the things you plan to do there and use it as your guide. Therefore, it will be much easier to decide on materials and outdoor pieces of furniture.
Easy care and storage
You certainly do not want to spend lots of time on cleaning and making your outdoor furniture look decent. So go for smart investment! Choose long-lasting and high quality materials. Purchase with care. Consider teak, wicker furniture, steel, wrought iron or cedar as most resistant materials to all weather conditions. Think about the rain or harsh rays of the sun. You do not want your furniture to rot or decay in a few years. Also, think about off-season time, it would be easy to store the furniture when it is not in use. Outdoor pieces of furniture that folds would be a great choice. Waterproof furniture and fabric are available in a big variety and can provide you with the same comfort as your indoor furniture.
Play with color and décor
Leave yourself some options, so you could be flexible with colors and different decoration stuff. Green and blue colors would be perfect to steal away your imagination, brighten your comfort zone and add some life. Experiment with bright colored decorative pillows, cushions, soft chair seats, blankets, rugs. But use high-quality water and stained resistant fabric. Most modern fabrics are also fade resistant. Table or floor lamp, candles, garden plaques, potted plants, stones – all these pieces will definitely help you to turn outdoor space into private, welcoming oasis. Use imagination and dress up your exterior, make it stylish and modern.
Dual-purpose backyard furniture
Frequently used backyard space would be nice to furnish with multi-purpose furniture. Especially when there is lack of space. For example, an ottoman can be used as extra seating; bench or old dower chest can serve as coffee table. Good furniture is an investment. Take your time before purchasing any piece of furniture.
Do not forget that exterior of your house represents your inner world. Backyard décor and furnishing has to be more than just blind selection. It is up to you to make your little ‘escape island’ comfortable, cozy and with outstanding collection of modern furniture.
