Top 4 Backyard Leisure Trends
In this article, we round up the biggest outdoor looks and backyard leisure trends for this year and show you how to make them work.
1. Outdoor Sofa Seating
When it comes to comfortable outdoor seating, low-slung, deep seating is the way to go. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your home away from home. Expect to see more modular pieces that can be easily adjusted or moved depending on your needs.
This type of outdoor furniture can also be used indoors, making it a great option for those who want to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
Throw in lots of cushions in contrasting patterns, textures and styles and voila, you have the perfect indoor living experience outdoors.
2. Carving Out a Private Retreat
A little privacy and solace for quiet reflection will never go out of style. Instead of spending your downtime indoors, why not carve out your own private retreat?
Ditch the digital distractions and dive into a book under your favorite sycamore tree, take a lazy afternoon nap in your hammock or kick back and relax in an energy-efficient hot tub.
3. Creative Outdoor Lighting
Want to create a dreamy atmosphere for late-night entertaining outdoors? Then you need to get creative with your outdoor lighting.
String lights are a classic way to add ambiance but think outside the box by hanging them in unexpected ways.
Also with more LED lighting and solar options available, you won’t be left in the dark when daylight ends!
Choose from a variety of enticing designs to create illuminated meandering garden paths and so much more.
There are endless ways to light up your outdoor living space, from string lights and tiki torches to landscape lighting. Use lighting to highlight your favorite features or to create a warm and welcoming vibe for your guests.
4. Vertical Garden Walls
Drive your gaze upwards with a vertical garden wall and make your backyard look more expansive.
Perfect for small spaces, a vertical garden is a great way to add some greenery without taking up too much ground space.
It’s also ideal for large patio spaces, and you can fulfill your desire to have flowers and plants wherever you choose, if you have a blank wall or bare fence.
