How to Bring Luxury to Your Outdoor Space?




Your patio or back yard can be a space for you to breathe in the fresh air, forget about the hectic downtown and traffic jam, and relax. But it doesn’t mean you have to keep it simple. Quite the opposite. If you like lavish spaces that ring of luxury, outdoor space might be the easiest one to achieve this. With the right mindset, ideas and the will to turn them into reality, you can quickly get a private luxury zen centre, just for you. Here are some of our suggestions on how to do this.

Make It Private

To be completely relaxed you need to let go of the thought that someone’s watching you. Not that you would do anything inappropriate, but this is essential for being carefree. Your outdoor space will be easily hidden from the curious eyes by hanging planters, planting trees (in this case you will have to wait for several years, but it will be worth it!), or using vine-covered arbours. Of course, you can always use fabric panels and create a secluded space right away.

Add a Sense of Nature

Being surrounded by nature immediately takes you back to a prehistoric time when it was your natural surroundings. Or not, but there’s something in the air when you’re in the middle of greenery. That’s why your outdoor space should celebrate nature. Decorate it with flowers and greenery. You can use large plants on the floor, hanging planters, or just simple, fresh flowers on the table. Another bonus – it gives a great shade, making it pleasant to be outside even on the hottest of days.

Choose Amazing Furniture

Your outside furniture should be comfortable, but also edgy in a way to fit the natural theme of outdoor zen space. After all, you don’t want to have your regular living room sofa outside – but you also don’t want the cheapest plastic furniture that you can sit on for half an hour, tops. Your ideal furniture for the patio or backyard should be a combination of the interior and exterior. Think about natural elements like wood or iron, but include the comfiest cushions that will invite you to spend the whole afternoon cocooned in them! If you have enough space, it would be amazing to create a separate dining and sitting area so you can play around with materials and patterns.

Hear the Whisper of the Water

Another natural element that makes an outdoor area is something watery. It can be a simple fountain or a pond, or a pool if you have the necessary space. Nothing says relaxation more than being able to dip into your private pool, swim a bit, unwind, and then sunbathe with a homemade lemonade in hand! To make sure you have all the privacy in the world, you might opt for installing aluminium pool fencing – a luxury element that will keep your pool safe and secure.

Swimming is something great, it improves your health, and nourishes your mind.

Turn the Lights On

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to achieve the luxurious feel of your outdoor space. You need to make it functional, but luckily, this won’t prevent you from creating ambience. Nowadays you are not limited by ugly fixtures – you can choose between lamps and chandeliers, candles and string lighting. This is where you can play and express your creativity, and use lighting that suits your space the best. If you’d like to achieve different lighting for different occasions, this is also possible. For example, you can use string lights during those romantic nights when you’d love a little magic – and chandeliers and candles when dining with your family.

Accessorise Well

Just like inside your house, the details are what makes it or breaks it. You might feel that you’re quite limited outside because there’s no space for too much detailing, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Think about colourful cushions, interesting pots, hanging mirrors that reflect light, but also give you an opportunity to check whether you have spinach between your teeth! Sequin coasters will also play with light differently than inside. A beautiful pitcher for serving lemonade, funky, elegant glasses, beautiful mugs with golden handles… there are so many things you can add that don’t cost much, but contribute to the feeling of luxury!

Having an outdoor area is a goal that many strive to achieve because nothing beats relaxation in the comfort of your own home. Spending sunny days outside just two steps away from all the other perks of your house is a fantastic perk, so if you’re lucky to have that space, make it as beautiful as possible. Soon, your friends will stop wanting to hang out in bars, and they’ll want to experience your luxurious zen space! Decide if they deserve it, or you want it all for yourself. We’d understand!
