There’s nothing like the beginning of a new season that inspires you to do a little redecorating. If your backyard living space is in need of a refresh with new décor, you may want to take these next tips into consideration when planning and shopping.
With help from our experts at Paradise Valley Spas in California, we’ll have your outdoor oasis shining like new in no time at all.
1. Play with Colors and Patterns
If your backyard is lacking personality, you may want to add some extra colors or patterns. Before you buy, take into consideration the other elements of your backyard space, including the shell and cabinetry of your hot tub or swim spa, patio, deck, and other furnishings or accessories.
This will help you to maintain balance and flow throughout your outdoor oasis through consistency.
Some furnishings or accessories that you may want to include to incorporate a pop of color or fun pattern are:
- Couch and chair cushions
- Throw pillows and blankets
- Carpets or rugs
- Hanging décor or signs
- Potted plants and garden areas
You may want to follow a neutral color palette for a more modern vibe or a variety of bright colors and patterns for a fun and family-friendly atmosphere.
2. Find a Balance Between Style and Comfort
The key to a functional and inviting backyard living space is finding a balance between style and comfort. While the décor you add to your backyard should meet your needs and specific tastes, it should also provide you with function.
For instance, if you invest in a stylish outdoor couch and patio set with matching cushions and pillows, you won’t get much use out of them if they aren’t actually comfortable.
When shopping for your backyard accessories, furnishings, and décor, be sure to test them out before you buy them. This will help to ensure that they are visually appealing, comfortable, and of good quality. With the right décor and furniture, you’ll be hard-pressed to come back inside the house this spring and summer season.
3. Illuminate Your Space
What good is an outdoor oasis, if you can’t see or use it once the sun goes down? Make use of your backyard space throughout the day and night with the right lighting solutions. The great thing about outdoor lighting is that it can add to the atmosphere and overall appeal of your backyard while creating a more safe and more functional space.
Add style and function to your backyard oasis with these exterior lighting solutions:
- In-ground lights
- Stair lighting
- Hanging string lights
- Candles and tiki torches
- Overhead lighting
- Motion-sensing lights
To provide your backyard with additional leisure space, décor, and function all in one, why not consider a fire feature? An outdoor fireplace, fire pit, or fire table might be the perfect addition to your backyard.
You can entertain, relax or stay active in style with an illuminated backyard space.
4. Maintain Natural Elements
Many of us can agree that an outdoor spa can offer a natural approach to improving your health and lifestyle. Create an area that is dedicated to wellness with an outdoor hot tub or swim spa installation that is complemented by natural elements. This could range from wooden and stone hardscapes to décor that is designed with your health and wellness in mind.
We suggest adding plants, both planted and potted, to your spa installation. Provide your spa with the privacy you desire with a garden trellis, gazebo, or bamboo privacy screen. Finish it off with rocks that blend into your garden and landscape, including some that double as solar-powered lights.
The more your backyard blends together naturally, the better it will look and function.
5. Complement Your Spa
When adding décor to your outdoor living space, we suggest taking your hot tub or swim spa into consideration. Think about the style and color of your shell and cabinetry, so that you can maintain a complementary and consistent look throughout your backyard.
You can also hide unsightly clutter and water care products with a dedicated storage area, ultimately improving the look, safety and function of your spa installation with one simple solution.
A popular piece of décor that many hot tub and swim spa owners are eager to include is a wooden sign. This sign can hang above your hot tub, a nearby wall, or even on the entranceway to your outdoor oasis.
