Posted July 19, 2015 by in Home

Most homeowners aspire to create the perfect home and focus their energy on interior design. While this makes sense and adds to the overall comfort of the home, homeowners sometimes neglect the wide open spaces in their backyard. As a result, the backyard of a home can be a missed opportunity.

Below are a few ideas on how to ‘deck out’ the open spaces around the home so that the great outdoors can be enjoyed all year round by homeowners and their lucky guests.

All Decked out! Backyard Essentials You Need to Invest in

Beat cold chills with heating devices

Whether you are in the shade or if there is a change in weather, you can beat the cold with an investment in outdoor heating devices that can be used to keep yourself and your guests warm.  Should the chill of the night or the shadows start to creep in, outdoor heaters such as those on offer from Heatstrip should be considered as an outdoor solution. With its minimalistic design, the Heatstrip outdoor heaters are ideal for outdoor undercover applications such as patios, barbecue areas, verandas, courtyards and balconies.

An added bonus is the ultra modern design which is far from an eyesore.

Invest in outdoor chairs that make you want to lounge in the open air

It all starts with the comfort of the chairs. If you are someone who wants to put their feet up on a sunbed, invest in these funky chairs and create your very own  ‘outdoor chill zone.’ If you would rather have an area where you want to entertain guests, consider an outdoor lounge set that will allow you to be comfortable and social.

Define your outdoor space with the table that suits the occasion.

Just as important as the chairs, you need to invest in a table that will allow you to define the interaction you would like to have. Be it working outside, dining, or entertaining guests over dinner or drinks. Consider the height and style that you need for the occasion and make the table your outdoor mantelpiece.

Consider the number of guests you’ll have over at any one time and select a table that will cater to this number.

Vary the outdoor floor design with an outdoor rug

If you would like to add a bit of extra flair to your outdoor space, then outdoor rugs will add color and versatility to the area.

Enhance the open-air ambiance with audio speakers

Create the atmosphere that you want by investing in audio speakers. Whether you are looking to play relaxing music or to turn the area into a mini theater, look into a speaker solution that will compliment the surrounding environment without annoying the neighbors. It is recommended to check out Bluetooth or surround sound options that may suit your open space environment.

Invest in a pool

The partner and the kids will love you for it. Imagine taking a refreshing dive on a hot summers day. You can keep your pool private to yourself or get social and invite friends and the neighbors around for pool parties. You may become one of the most popular people in the neighborhood!

Invest in a barbecue area

Barbecues, simply put, are a great investment for your outdoor area. What better device to bring friends and family together than a barbecue that will wow your guests with sizzling steaks and snacks. Toss up a bit of salad and invite people around for a good afternoon catch up. What more could you want?

With these just being a few of the ideas that you can use to improve your backyard, get inspired and create your own custom outdoor area today!
