2. How Do You Wan to Use this Space?
The backyard and balcony become an additional living space when the weather warms up. How do you dream of using yours?
If you enjoy cooking, maybe you are most interested in installing an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, smoker, pizza oven, fridge, and sink. Plant lovers will doubt wish to maximize the amount of garden bed space for flowers and shrubs. Want a place to unwind at the end of the day? Then a Japanese-style garden or a fountain around which you can design lounging areas with the appropriate furniture might be something to consider. Have a more active lifestyle? A sports court, for tennis or basketball, or an extensive grassy surface for ball sports should be your priority. Do you enjoy hosting family and friends? Make sure you include enough seating on the patio with built-in benches and outdoor furniture.
And don’t forget the lighting for an enchanting evening ambiance, nor an outdoor heater to extend your patio season. You may be charmed by the idea of a cozy seating area around a fire pit. Place a large basket nearby in which you can store blankets and throws to keep your guests warm as the party goes on into the night.
3. What Is Your Decor Style?
Since the backyard is an extension of your indoor living space, you should coordinate both zones’ decor styles:
- A traditional garden style is more colourful and combines a wider range of flowers. It likewise utilizes rough iron furniture and decorative objects.
- The modern garden is minimalist and streamlined, with few to no flowers and a focus on simple shrubbery and rocks.
- For a more dynamic look, include a few more colours than what is already present in your home’s decor. Brightly hued cushions, decorative items in bold tones or tropical flowers—that will require lots of pampering—will transform your yard into a tropical paradise.
