With Spring in the air and the restrictions of 2020 are slowly easing, it is time to start preparing your outdoor living space with outdoor furniture for yourself, friends and family to enjoy in the warmer months. We have put together some of the latest outdoor trends that will help update your outdoor living space to enjoy the beautiful weather ahead.
Outdoor Living Corner
Create an extension of everything your love about your living room outside. And make your outdoor space the new place to be. Make sure your outdoor space is comfortable, functional and can endure the elements. Create an indoor-outdoor sanctuary by mixing and matching furniture like you would with your indoor pieces. Try contrasting grey Aluminium finish furniture with some woven textured pillows. If you have dark outdoor floors select light colour cushions in shades of blue or green. By pairing dark floors with light accessories ensures your outdoor space is always looking fresh and clean. Creating a good looking space in the backyard with space for family and friends to sit around will be your highlight of the summer. When deciding where to put your outdoor living corner we recommend finding a place with some shade to ensure hours of enjoyment. To keep everyone warm into the night look at buying a fire pit which can act as the central piece of this space.
Light Up your Space
Enhance the atmosphere outside during the evening by adding outdoor lights. Light the way up your garden path leading to your outdoor living corner. Outdoor lights are the perfect addition for illuminating pathways or for hosting garden parties. Try stringing some fairy lights through the trees and other structures to create a calm ambiance.
Create a dedicated game space in the garden for all to enjoy. When selecting your outdoor game space make sure you are choosing a flat surface of the garden. Having games set up when family and friends come over creates a fun, exciting space for all to enjoy. For a game the whole family can enjoy try Finska. This game was first introduced to Australia in 2009, the game’s popularity continues to go from strength to strength. Finska will provide guaranteed fun for all ages at your next outdoor party.
When purchasing your outdoor furniture make sure you’re selecting furniture that will complement a space with the best view in the garden. Purchase a table that is able to fit six people comfortably around it. If you do not have the space to fit a large rectangle table look at round tables. They are a great addition for small spaces and still manage to fit a large amount of people around them. When it comes to style Scandinavian designs are on trend and have a timeless look about them with clean lines and modern finishes. Purchase matching chairs or mix and match with an eclectic set for you to enjoy backyard brunches or evening cocktails.
Create a Cocktail Station
A cocktail cart is a fun way to engage your guests when entertaining outside. Look for a cocktail bar cart that has bi-level shelves and wheels for easy transport so you can move this from your outdoor living corner, game space and dining table. To compliment your table look at purchasing a similar style bar cart. This fun outdoor furniture will add value and enjoyment to your outdoor area.
A Playful Place to Relax
After hours of entertaining it is important to create a space that is yours. A garden hammock is the perfect piece of furniture to create a tranquil place for you to escape and relax by yourself. Wheel over your bar cart and enjoy a drink swinging in your new outdoor space.
