Top Outdoor Living Space Trends Guide
Imagine a nice spring day in your outdoor living space. You’re sipping a nice beverage and talking to your loved ones. But the experience won’t be as great if that space isn’t tended well.
If you’ve been neglecting your yard, it’s time to upgrade it. After all, you deserve to live in a house with a beautiful outdoor living space. If you don’t know where to start, good news. You’re on the right track.
In this article, we’ll discuss the newest outdoor living space trends in 2020 that you must try.
- Outdoor Fire Pits
Do you want to take your outdoor living space to the next level? Getting an outdoor fire pit is one way to do that. By doing so, you get to leave everyone in awe as soon as they see your backyard.
Gathering around fire is in our nature as humans. Movies and TV series have shown us how cozy and romantic fire pits can be. It’s because outdoor fire pits can grab the attention of all of our senses.
Outdoor fire pits are not just about the aesthetics. They can contribute to your wellness as well. In fact, a study shows that being exposed to fire can lower your blood pressure. The longer you expose yourself to fire, the more relaxed you’re going to be.
- Biophilic Designs
Another emerging trend in crafting outdoor living spaces is the use of biophilic designs. As its name implies, the concept comes from the love of nature. It incorporates natural elements into building a space that is conducive for creativity and reducing stress.
In fact, big companies like Amazon, Google, and Apple use biophilic designs to transform their offices. If these corporations do it, then why shouldn’t you?
Decks and fences made of natural wood (or with wood-like finishes), flowers, and bushes effectively make your outdoor living space look biophilic. Mix them with a few artificial decorations, and your lawn is good to go.
- Minimalist Spaces
Minimalism has made quite a reputation these past few years that a Netflix show based on it became a big hit. However, minimalism is not only great for kitchens and living rooms, but for the outdoors, too.
The main idea behind a minimalist outdoor living space is using simple components with a few features. Neutral colors such as gray, white, black, and beige are among the most popular themes used in minimalist spaces.
In addition, minimalism works really well if you have limited outdoor space. After all, it’s a testament to, “Less is more”.
- Sand and Gravel Landscapes
Sand and gravel are among the best landscaping materials in the market. They last long, look appealing, and are environment-friendly.
They help decrease the need for watering, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. Using gravel to decorate your outdoor living space will not only reduce your carbon footprint, it will help you save money as well.
Gravel of different shapes and sizes add texture to your lawn. They can also be used as garden beds, and can be combined with other trends in this list. And let’s be honest, a gravel pathway with a sand base is a timeless trend.
- Aquatic Gardens
Brilliant architects exerted great effort to make buildings on water possible, so putting a water structure in your yard is not a bad idea. As much as fire calms your nerves, so does water soothe your mind.
A water feature adds visual charm and interest to your outdoor living space. This might come in handy in case you decide to sell your house. Think of it as an investment.
Sure, garden fountains can be big and bold, but they are surely worth your money. Just make sure that the individual or contractor you’re availing it from is under the PPSR (Personal Property Security Register). After all, you want to make sure that the contractor knows how important the PPSR is in safeguarding its customers’ trust.
Your outdoor living space is the extension of your home, so consider yourself lucky enough if you have one. Whether it’s a small patio, a rooftop terrace, or a big yard, getting it in shape is one of the best decisions you’ll make, home-improvement wise.
