Ways to Refresh Your Outdoor Living Space for Spring

It’s no secret that the new American status symbol is having a fancy backyard living space. This has become even truer since the COVID-19 pandemic, considering that more people are spending time at home than ever. Who doesn’t want to be able to feel like they’re on vacation enjoying their own private oasis without ever having to leave home? If your current backyard is neglected, spare, or drab, however, it is much harder to get into the getaway mindset and achieve the outdoor living experience you desire.

The good news is, there’s no time like spring to turn your outdoor living space around! When the frost is melting, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and the temperature is rising, you can refresh your outdoor living space and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. Consider the following tips to get started:

Add Lighting

There’s nothing quite like twinkly lights when it comes to creating a warm and welcoming ambiance to an outdoor area. You can drape string lights on things like posts, trees, or railing, or you can use candles or lanterns—there’s a bevy of options to choose from!

Bring the Inside Out With Furnishings

You’ll want to cozy-up your outdoor living space with furniture that will allow guests to gather, or that you can simply enjoy yourself! Bring an outdoor table to the center of the space and incorporate outdoor furniture that is comfortable and inviting. You’ll also want to add outdoor throws and pillows to the seating to really step up your lounge-game.

Lay Rugs

It’s a great idea to add softness underfoot to your open-air living space with an outdoor area rug that is quick-drying and resistant to fading, stains, and mildew. When it gets dirty you can simply hose it down and you’re good-to-go.

Hang Drapery

Hanging outdoor curtains is a great way to add shade and privacy to your outdoor living space, and it can make it feel more like a true outdoor living room.

Invest in Outdoor Shade Structures

One of the most impactful ways that you can refresh your outdoor living space this spring is by adding an outdoor shade structure, such as a pergola, patio cover, arbor, or screen room. These structures will provide a stylish and convenient area where you can relax and entertain while being protected from harsh UV rays, rain, and other unpleasant natural elements. They’ll also add value to your home, as they’re a huge selling point for buyers.
