Mother Nature has finally let go of her frigid grip and allowed spring to appear. While we may experience a few more frosty mornings, many around the country have transitioned into full-blown spring mode. With warmer weather finally here to stay, it’s time to create a beautiful and relaxing outdoor oasis.
For a number of people, spring and summer equate to outdoor enjoyment and entertainment. Whether it’s barbecues, fire pits, romantic talks or catching fireflies with the kids, warmer weather brings about fun outside the home. And with that, you need certain amenities that will allow you and your family to enjoy your time.
Tips to Create the Perfect Outdoor Oasis
1) Lights: The right lighting always adds to the ambiance of a room or space. An outdoor oasis is no different. Whether you spend some money on true outdoor lighting or merely string Christmas lights around the perimeter, any type of lighting will add a warm glow to your outdoor living space. A quick search on Pinterest or HOUZZ will offer a number of ideas and suggestions when it comes to lighting your outdoor oasis.
2) Comfortable outdoor furniture: You can’t truly enjoy your outdoor space without comfortable furniture. Invest in furniture that is weather resistant and will allow your friends and family members to enjoy the space. Whether your outdoor oasis is large or small, you will need somewhere to sit while dining and savor one another’s company.
3) Bring the Indoors Out: Oftentimes, our designers encourage homeowners to bring the outdoors in, but when creating the perfect outdoor oasis, we suggest doing the opposite. Make your outdoor living and entertaining space not only beautiful but functional by installing cabinets or including a storage unit. The Braemar team can help you incorporate outdoor storage ideas into your design plan. There’s nothing more annoying than having to go in and out of the house to get needed items. With appropriate cabinetry installed in or adjacent to your outdoor space, you can store all of your necessary supplies within reach.
Cool morning, sunny afternoons, and warm evenings warrant a significant amount of time spent outside. Prepare your outdoor oasis so that it’s a haven for family and friends, a place where individuals of all ages can unwind, have fun, and make memories.
