  • By Kate Williams

Outdoor living has certainly become a lot more popular these days. No longer can you just think about your indoor space, as many people are blurring the lines between outdoor and indoor living. When you design an inviting backyard space, it encourages your household to spend more time in the area, getting everyone outdoors and (hopefully) in the sun. It also helps to create an excellent entertaining space!

If you are changing up your outdoor space, here are some tips to make your space stand out from the rest:

1. Think About Design and Layout

The first thing you need to do is think about how your space is going to look, and where everything is going to be placed. What is the purpose of the space and what will you be using it for. If your space is big enough, you could have multiple different mini spaces for various purposes, like one space for entertaining guests and another for enjoying some peace and quiet.

2. Quality Outdoor Furniture

It doesn’t really matter how undercover your furniture may be, if it is outside, there is still a chance it could be impacted by the weather. This is why it is important to purchase quality furniture that is built to withstand whatever the elements throw at it. Weather-resistant materials are a must! It is also a good idea to have seating that is actually comfortable to sit on, so it makes you want to stay outdoors for even longer.

3. Install an Outdoor Shower Column

If you are looking for that little bit of additional luxury, then you really can’t go past an outdoor shower column. This feature is especially a good addition to your space if you have a pool, or like to spend a lot of time at the beach, as you are able to rinse off any sand, chlorine, dirt, etc. before going inside your home. Contemporary outdoor showers can become a true focal point of your outdoor space and be a major talking point.

4. Stylish Lighting

While you will have natural lighting during the day in your outdoor space, if you are spending nights in your backyard, you will also need to think about how to transform your area using lighting. Lighting can really make or break your space, and there’s lots of unique options to choose from, like string lights and lanterns. It is also important to include proper lighting in functional areas, like around the BBQ and where people would be eating, for example.
