Outdoor Living Space Ideas You Can Use For Spring

Depending on where you live, it’s highly likely that you’ve experienced a brutal winter this year. Now is the time to get your yard, deck, balcony, and back porch ready for warm weather. If you’re ready to enjoy the outdoors, here are some ideas to make the most of your outdoor living space.


The easiest way to dress up your outdoor living space and still make a big impact is with lighting. String lights work really well for small patios, but look great in any outdoor space. Brighten things up with weatherproof LED lights to be as energy-efficiently as possible.


The right seating for your outdoor living space can make all the difference. Big spaces can handle the bulk look of a farmhouse table, a custom-built bench or an outdoor sectional. In smaller spaces, try brightly colored wicker chairs, or a small bench with comfy throw pillows to help make the space feel more open.


Without a doubt, a hammock is a necessity for making the most of your leisure time outdoors. Hammocks come in a variety of colors and have improved mounting hardware to make them easier to install.


While springtime or autumn sun doesn’t seem as harsh, you still need to watch the harmful rays. Add a bit of ambiance with a portable pergola that can lend your space more privacy, shade, and shelter. Curtains in your outdoor living space can also provide shade while dressing up your backyard design.

Bar, Kitchens and Beverage Areas

Turn your patio into the ultimate hot spot with a customized bar that is stocked with all the necessary items to make every weekend the perfect summer party. Outdoor bars, beverage areas and kitchens can make hosting duties so much easier.

Fire Pits

Combine form and function in one with a versatile fire pit. Roasting marshmallows, making smores, and sharing stories around the fire are perfect family summer pastimes. Make sure to check local by-laws to see if fire pits can be installed and used in your area.

Area Rugs

If your budget won’t allow you to buy much more than seating and a table for your patio, you can still dress up your outdoor living space with an area rug. To help stretch your budget even further, purchase an inexpensive rug, and transform it with a stencil.

Unique and Decorative Planters

Don’t settle for just any planter for your beautiful hanging plants. Grab a can of spray paint in your favorite accent color and repurpose unique items like an old tire, a broken wheelbarrow, or birdbath for a fun and rustic look. If you already have tons of plain or mismatched pots in your outdoor space, transform their look with fun pops of color.
