How to Highlight Your Outdoor Living Space

Now that spring is officially here, homeowners everywhere have the luxury to make the most out of their outdoor living spaces. Spring is the time of the year when we can enjoy the sun and the warm breeze of the great outdoors – do not waste this precious time cooped up inside your home!

Here are some simple outdoor decorating tips that will make lounging around your patio or backyard a relaxing experience.

Stick to a monochromatic colour scheme

There is something about a muted and coordinated colour palette that makes any space appear more luxurious. Try to stick to a monochromatic colour scheme when it comes to outdoor furniture pieces. This will surely make your patio or backyard look more put together – a more refreshing look if you ask us!

Add as much seating area as you can

Added seating spaces make any space appear more intimate and accommodating. If you can, invest in modular couches that will make your backyard party-ready without much work! There is something about a backyard with plenty of room for lounging around that simply makes it more comfortable for homeowners and guests alike.

Create a make-shirt outdoor kitchen

If you are the type of person who likes hosting parties then a makeshift outdoor kitchen is for you! Transforming an isolated area in your backyard into a makeshift kitchen exudes a laidback feel that will surely keep guests coming back for more.

This idea doesn’t have to break the bank, too! All you need is a solid counter, your cookout essentials and your culinary prowess. This also encourages guests to help out in the cooking – because the kitchen is so accessible and unintimidating.

Create a dining area

Dining al fresco is the epitome of luxury. Invest in a good quality dining table that can withstand the elements of the outdoors.

You can always have guests over and dine in the couch but why not amp up the ante and provide a designated dining area where everyone can sit comfortably without having to juggle plates and cups on their laps, right? Right.

A Designated nook just for you

If you are craving for a bit of solace under the sun, invest in a canopy with a comfortable lounging chair just for you! This is a place where you can enjoy a glass of cold iced tea curled up with your favourite book while getting your dose of vitamin c!


When it comes to outdoor living spaces, the decorating possibilities are endless! All it takes is a bit of imagination and key furniture pieces to transform a space. Take inspiration from our tips and take your backyard or patio to a whole new level
