So far, 2019 has been a year for improvement. We have found that self-care can go a long way, and what better way to reflect and relax than enjoying an outdoor living space? We’ve got some great ideas to share with you!
This year, outdoor living spaces and designs will evolve to make hosting easier, more enjoyable, and maybe even help the environment!
The summer is a great time to host any kind of outdoor get-together. And if you’re a foodie, this first ones for you: one of the most popular, current trends among homeowners is an outdoor kitchen/bar set up. This feature allows for an extension of your home, into your backyard and it’s a perfect way to show off your culinary skills to your guests…not to mention it’s extremely cool.
This combination of gray and beige is a new trend taking off this year in both interior and exterior living spaces. These monochromatic colors will not only allow for implementation of more unique furniture, but they also blend well with any landscape, making a seamless and aesthetic transition from one space to another.
This particular trend is gaining traction among younger homeowners. The whole idea is to blend your outdoor living space in with the natural ecosystem. For example, water features are a great start. They mute sounds from passing cars and noisy neighbors, and create a tranquility that can’t be beat. Other ways to improve your outdoor space’s sustainability are planting to support pollinators (save the bees) and implementing edible landscapes such as a vegetable garden!
A great practice you might want to adopt when making renovations is requesting 3D designs of any project you outsource for. This is a great way to make sure you and you contractor are on the same page and give you a chance to make any last minute changes.
When you start planning for your outdoor living space, keep these ideas in mind and never be afraid to add your own flare.
