How to breathe new life into your outdoor space

by | May 7, 2023 | Home and Living

Refresh your outdoor space with these four simple, trendy do-it-yourself projects that bring the wow-factor.

On the patio, truly transform your setup by considering both the style and function of your furniture set. Then choose furniture that reflects your needs. If you love lounging in the backyard, a sectional would be a better fit for you than a set of chairs. If you are an entertainer, be sure to maximize your seating options and an area that promotes conversation. When picking your furniture, sets with a rounded shape lead the 2023 outdoor trends.

To really tie your outdoor space together, enliven your exterior paints and stains that pull inspiration from nature. To make choosing the right shade a simple task, look to an expert choice like BeautiTone’s exterior colour of the year, Western White. This paint is a calming neutral influenced by the undertones of Canada’s western red cedars. Whether paired with a rich wood stain or a boldly coloured door it can really elevate the curb appeal of your home.

Now it’s time to accessorize. Add personality through vibrant outdoor rugs, ornate planters, as well as lively greens and flowers. With the return of maximalism, which celebrates an eclectic mash up of things and styles, mix and match patterns to capture the trend. To be sure you don’t create an eyesore, select a palette of colours and patterns that match in intensity.

The final touch to transform an outdoor space is to set the lighting and ambience. Outdoor heaters and fire tables, which you can find at local stores like Home Hardware, are a stylish solution to bring light and warmth to a cool evening. When deciding where you want to place these items, look at the layout of your yard and find distinct areas to highlight. Add lighting to your conversation areas, but also showcase any landscaping or hardscapes you love.

Bringing these elements together will breathe new life into your yard, making it a space you’ll want to spend time in.
