As much as you may love to lounge around the bed and get cozy in the living room, your backyard is the true sanctuary. Even though your home’s interior is inviting, comfortable, and stylish, it cannot offer the fresh air and nature that your backyard does. From paradise-status pools to stately patios and manicured landscapes, prepare yourself for these great backyard design ideas.
Set Up a Yurt
Set up a yurt if you have available space that is large enough. There is so much it can be used from. It can function as an entertaining area/living room, or even a pool house. You can also use this area as a place to hang out during the cooler months because yurts have more insulation than tents.
Focus On Landscaping
The main reason why you chill out in the backyard is to reconnect with nature and unwind in the fresh air. Therefore, avoid cluttering it with decor and furniture and focus on florals and landscaping.
Invest In an Inground Swimming Pool
A great backyard design ideas that we recommend for your inground swimming pool is one where the pool is surrounded by a canopy of trees and a sun-dappled garden. To add some extra style points, hang some string lights in the seating area.
Upgrade Your Seating
If your backyard has benches and hammocks, add swing sofas for the perfect blend. These sofas are comfortable, relaxing, and visually appealing especially if you play with proportion and scale.
If you have a pool in your backyard, picture growing wisteria beside it. Doesn’t it look heavenly? Add a flower-covered pergola and a group of bistro chairs under the shade and you have a perfect lunch spot.
Get Inspiration From Your Surroundings
Ensure that your furniture and decor blend in with the natural landscape. For a dinning area in the backyard, a good design idea is to use a rustic dining table with trunk stools as seats.
Build a Tree House
If you have a few trees in your backyard, or the area opens up into a forest, consider building a treehouse. If building it seems like too much work, you can build a banister around it.
Hang a Hammock
You can still take advantage of the fresh air of the outdoors, and do so in style, even if you have a tiny outdoor space. Hang a slim hammock and then make it pop with fun throw pillows, a jute area rug, and floor cushions to provide more space for seating.
