While staying indoors provides comfort, air-conditioning, and plush seating, you can get the same experience outdoors with a well-designed seating space. Enjoy the sun and nature around you while hanging out on your decorated porch, patio, or deck to get the best experience. With a little planning, paint, pillows, and other accessories, you will find yourself outside more than you’re inside!
Here are five tips for bringing indoor comfort outdoors and creating a luxurious outdoor living space.
Lie in the Shade
While indulging in the sunshine is okay, sometimes the sun can become too hot or bright to handle. Add an umbrella, shade sail, or build onto your deck or patio to create a nice shady space. Adding a shaded area to your outdoor space allows you to enjoy the outdoors without feeling like the sun’s cooking you. This cool area will also encourage you and your family to spend more time outdoors.
Invest in Your Lawn Care
The number one way to bring indoor comfort outdoors is by taking care of your outdoor space’s landscaping. Investing in great lawn care and landscaping can help elevate your backyard (and front yard) to the next level. Adding different plants and taking proper care of your grass will make your space look aesthetically pleasing and keep pests and insects from invading your area.
Consider Adding Lighting to Your Space
Don’t let the sunset be the reason why the party ends. Extend your time outside by adding lighting to your outdoor space. Doing so will make your backyard more inviting and more secure at night. Adding lighting will keep away unwanted visitors and pests who lurk in the dark. You can have a well-lit, safe space with fun string lights, torches, and motion-detection lights along your walkways.
Incorporate Different Colors and Textures
Your yard can be more than a large space of grass and plants. It can be an entertainment spot with an outdoor kitchen, a hang-out space with a pool, or a place to read and relax. However, you can add personality and character to your space by incorporating different colors and textures. Be sure to select a “theme” and adorn the space with various textures, patterns, and colors that complement each other when designing your outdoor area. Planning a colorful, multi-layered design is another way to bring indoor comfort outdoors since you’re adding a personal touch to the backyard.
