Outdoor Living Ideas to Keep Your Home Feeling Fresh for Spring
Spring and summer nights spent outside enjoying the company of close friends and family makes for one of the best ways to end a day. This spring, get your outdoor living space in order as the days get longer. We’re sharing six foolproof ways to update your outdoor living area including quick fixes and larger investments.
Mid-Century Modern Metal Chairs
Great for their look but also wonderful because how easy they are to clean, you’ll want to invest in a few mid-century modern chairs this spring — Namely ones that are metal! With a distinctly industrial vibe, these chairs are great when paired with chic pillows, a natural jute rug or hanging lights that add a cozy feel to your outdoor living space.
Full-Sized Table for Alfresco Dining
Combining outdoor living and eating makes for a win-win situation when entertaining friends and family. Enjoy views, gorgeous landscapes and culinary delights all together by adding a full-sized dining table to your outdoor living or porch area. You’ll be able to fit plenty of people, especially when you also have relaxed seating outside.
Lots of Lush Greenery
Nothing says spring like fresh greenery! With so many great garden stores around Austin, you can find whatever greenery looks best in your outdoor living space. Oversized succulents provide a simple, easy way to make your patio look green throughout the summer months with less upkeep than other plants.
Oversized Fire Pits
If you have space for a fire pit to be built into your backyard, consider this fate! Since Austin has mild seasons, a fire pit will make outdoor entertaining possible year round, especially in the transitional seasons with unexpected temperatures. Stone fireplaces are distinctly Texan, making them a great option for your outdoor living area.
Outdoor living areas are becoming even more popular in Austin, with few homes lacking a space to unwind out back. To make any patio feel like home, pick a thin, patterned rug to place between lounge chairs or underneath a dining table.
Comfy Outdoor Couches
If you’re anticipating entertaining for hours on end this spring or summer, this is one of the easiest ways to update your outdoor living. An oversized outdoor sectional will quickly become the favorite relaxation piece when friends and family come over, especially if it sits near a fire pit!
