How to Design an Outdoor Living Space Based on Your Personal Style

Are you redesigning your backyard? Use these tips for how to design an outdoor living space based on your personal style from Bellareed Luxury Pools.

Designing an outdoor living space is no easy feat but with the right idea for what you want to do, you can piece together your own personal oasis. Don’t expect to get everything perfect the first time around either. Designing an outdoor space is something that will take considerable effort but the more time you spend in your outdoor living space the more ideas you will get for how to keep updating it to become the space that you envision.

Rethink Layout Assumptions

When you design an outdoor living space, you want to try and get any predisposed assumptions that you have about the space out of your head. If you are working with the same backyard that you’ve had for a while, it could be difficult to envision a new way of arranging patio furniture. Scrap any previous ideas that you have about how to use space in your backyard and play around with seating arrangements, where plants are placed, and so on.

Find a Cozy Corner To Gather Around

Every backyard needs a cozy little corner for you, your family, and your guests to gather around. A cozy corner can actually be in the corner or you can position the seating around fire features like a fire pit and heating lamps to make things a little cozier! Whatever you decide to do, be sure to add plenty of comfortable seating, pillows, and throw blankets to bring it all together.

Include Plenty of Lighting

When you design an outdoor living space, you always want to be sure that you include plenty of lighting options. This is especially true when you are decorating your backyard for the autumn months when the days are shorter and you’ll most likely be sitting around with friends and family in the evening. Fixed lighting, like patio lights, is a great choice but don’t be afraid to go out and DIY your own string of lights to hang overhead for a nice stary vibe.

Don't Forget the Shade

If you want to enjoy your outdoor yard during cool weekend mornings then you want to be sure that you include shading options when you design an outdoor living space. Adding shade to your backyard can come from temporary shade fixtures like patio umbrellas, a retractable awning, or it can be more a more permanent fixture like a gazebo or patio.

Leave Plenty of Room for Plants

Whether you’re a plant person or not, you can’t deny that they are one of the best ways to add a touch of heaven to your outdoor patio. Plants are great for accenting your lawn and decorating plan walls that would otherwise be a sight for sore eyes. Take a trip to your local plant nursery and pick out some greenery to make your backyard look like an oasis.
