When the cold weather packs its bags and the warmth begins to make itself at home, your backyard is the place to be. You may be happy to sit on your patio in a camping chair but creating a cozy and comfortable outdoor living space has its benefits. To maximize your space and time in the great outdoors, consider these 2022 outdoor living space trends.
Take Interior Comforts Outside
How often do you choose to sit inside and read a book instead of taking it to the porch? For many people, this decision is based on comfort. Why sit on a hard chair outside when the far comfier couch is just inside the door? Start with outdoor furniture that you want to sit on. It should be comfortable and functional.
Also, think about other aspects of your interior décor that would work well outside.
An iced tea or lemonade needs a table to sit on. If the sun is beating down on you, you may find respite in an awning or umbrella and a misting fan. Create a space that you’d be happy to spend time in – even when your interior is just as comfortable!
Create an Outdoor Office
Even though the world is relatively back to normal after the COVID-19 lockdown, many employees still work from home. When the weather is at its best, you don’t want to be stuck inside! Create a space where you can work outside this spring and summer. With adequate shade from the sun and a weather-proof desk, you can quickly get an extension cord to charge your devices. If you cannot find a desk that might work, a sturdy wooden desk with a coat of spar-urethane might surprise you.
Your Garden Doesn’t Have to Be Horizontal
Gardens are beautiful and incredibly useful. A vertical garden can work wonders when you don’t have the space for a full-blown one. You can purchase a vertical unit or create one on your own. With some shelving, a handful of pots, soil, and seeds, you can grow in limited space.
Container gardening is another way to grow without a large yard. Fill various sized pots with soil and get to growing! You might be surprised at the benefits; your garden can be more mobile, easier to maintain and weed, and beautiful.
Try for Eco-Friendly Options
This year is the year of recyclables. Whether building furniture or creating a gardening space, using recycled materials is trendy. Instead of tossing out those pallets or paint buckets, use them for something new in your outdoor space. It’s more cost-effective and better for the planet!
