Outdoor Furniture: Turn a Once Boring Space into a Charming Retreat

While it’s a no-brainer that most homeowners prefer a home with charming interiors, many aren’t aware of the design potentials of a vacant backyard. With only a few pieces of furniture and greeneries here and there, you can turn it into a charming, tiny retreat in no time.

Want to spice up your home backyard into your own little relaxing heaven? Here are seven design ideas to get you started:

1. Add an arbor for a warm welcome

Want to make your space extra ethereal? Add an arbor with a height of at least 7 inches. If you’re planning to put train-climbing plants, add another 18 inches of height.

2. Make an outdoor center table its focal point

Who said center tables are only meant for your home’s living area? Use this as your backyard’s focal point by choosing a uniquely designed unit that will make it stand out. You can even add little trinkets and plants to add a pop of color into your outdoor center table.

3. Put an outdoor sofa for maximum comfort

Another living-room-turned-outdoor furniture, sofas are great to turn a tacky backyard into a more intimate space.

To make it even comfier, why not try and add a few throw pillows? While you can choose ones that match your sofa’s color, patterned pillowcases can also add a little zest to your outdoor sofa.

4. Outdoor dinner parties? Why not?

We’ve all seen (or probably experienced) outdoor dinner parties at least once in our lives. Why don’t you turn your backyard into a party-ready outdoor space by adding a set of dining table and chairs?

5. Plants, plants, and more plants!

From exterior landscaping to add a spark of life to indoor spaces, the architecture and interior design communities recognize the role of vegetation in a wholesome design.

If you’ve always wanted yet hesitated to have outdoor plants because you’re too busy, opt for low-maintenance plants instead. Despite requiring little care and attention, they will still keep your outdoor space alive and picture-perfect.

6. Add lights for a dreamy atmosphere

To make your space even more charming at night, try adding warm-toned lights for a dreamy and cozy unwinding session. For starters, adding water-proof fairy lights or a statement pendant light will do the job.

7. Make your soles mud-free with walkways

For walkways, opt for coarsely textured paving materials. Set them at a slope between 1 to 2 percent to encourage water runoff. This will keep your backyard dry and hazard-free at all times.

Depending on your personal preference, you can choose between wood, concrete, and brick walkways. Just make sure you know how to maintain them fully.

The Next Step

With all these design ideas mentioned above, you might be overwhelmed with where to begin. To make sure your outdoor elements perfectly complement each other, always start with the biggest – your furniture. By choosing unified outdoor furniture with easy-to-blend designs, you’re only a few steps away from turning your bland backyard into a charming outdoor retreat.
