Spring is in the air and now is the perfect time to consider giving your outdoor space a facelift! Whether you have a modest patio or big back yard, you can transform your outdoor area into a total oasis in these 5 steps.
First, analyze the space you have to work with and make sure it’s clutter-free! If you have a small deck or patio, then sweep it up and remove any trash. If you have a large yard, then remove any leaves or weeds, trim up any overgrown plants or trees, and remove all trash.
Once your space is fully cleaned up, you can really start to take in your surroundings. If you have a beautiful view, then try your best to make the most of it. Move forward with designing a space to compliment the scenery, not compete with it. Use the view as a focal point for you to frame your landscaping and furnishings around.
Comfort is key and the more comfortable your seating, the more likely you’ll be to spend time in your outdoor space. Try lounge chairs, a deep seat set, chaise lounges, hammocks, hanging swings, or anything that is comfortable, stylish, and allows you to stretch out and enjoy your surroundings.
You’ll also want to consider an awning, umbrella, gazebo, or pergola for shade during the dog days of summer!
A water feature is a great way to add some peace to your outdoor space. A fountain, birdbath, rock waterfall, or even a hot tub are all water features that bring soothing sounds and restful relaxation to your oasis.
If you want to keep the party going into the night, then you’re going to need some light! String up some patio lights, light up the tiki torches, or even add a firepit. Not only do these features contribute to the ambiance, but they also provide light for nighttime entertaining and some even act as deterrents to pesky outdoor pests.
Last, but certainly not least is bringing your space to life with some plants! Plants liven up your outdoor haven and can take your décor to the next level. Here are just some of the many ways you can incorporate plants into your oasis.
We hope these 5 steps give you the inspiration you need to take your outdoor living space to the next level! Whatever direction you choose, remember to make it unique and make it YOU. Want more? Click here for more Tusco Tips
