Having a great outdoor space at home can transform your life.
When you feel comfortable with your own outdoor area, you tend to spend a lot more time outside. Spending more time outside is great for your mental and physical health, so what better reason is there to spruce up your backyard area?
A lot of people simply get overwhelmed by the thought of landscaping, decorating, and maintaining an outdoor area. Today, we’re going to help you overcome that by giving you some inspiration for your own home. These are 14 outdoor living designs that you’re going to want to copy ASAP.
1. Outdoors On Gameday
Why not take your favorite indoor activities and bring them outdoors? Install a gorgeous living space, complete with a big-screen TV, on your back patio. With lots of comfortable seating and good weather, you can have all of your pals over to watch the game.
2. Poolside Villa
If you have space for a pool, there’s nothing that will bring your family together more. You don’t have to stop at the pool, however, because you can create a little oasis in your backyard using your pool as the centerpiece. It’s the perfect thing to keep cool on those hot summer days.
3. Outdoor Fireplace
Outdoor fireplaces are all the rage these days. You can go many different ways with an outdoor fireplace, from a living room motif outside your back door to a hidden seating area at the far end of your backyard. Choose from any building materials as well, with brick, stucco, and stone all being great options.
4. Cooking In the Elements
A small outdoor kitchen would look great alongside your outdoor fireplace. If you’ve seen one of these before, then you know how extensive people’s outdoor kitchens can get with full-scale ovens and stovetops, all the necessary cupboards, counter space, and cookware. You might even be able to ditch your current indoor kitchen.
5. Avian Paradise
If you’re a bird lover, then you can fill your yard with numerous outposts for your avian friends to come to eat and relax. Meanwhile, you can get your birdwatching book out and make note of all the fun new species that come flying into your avian paradise.
Out Lesera birdhouses, birdbaths, and birdfeeders are the perfect things to decorate your yard with. Not only will the birds love them, but you’ll love looking at them scattered as far as the eye can see.
6. Coffee Bar
Something you can do if you’re looking for an elegant way to bring the Mediterranean into your yard is installing a small coffee bar from your kitchen to your back patio. Make and serve up delicious drinks out through the window to the bar and seating area just on the other side.
7. Elizabethan Garden
If you want that classic English garden look, then take a look at our incredible gazebos and other beautifully-designed outdoor living structures. For an affordable price, you can outfit your entire backyard with Lesera gates, swings, and carts that’ll have your guests in awe.
8. Gazebos Galore
There’s nothing more romantic than a gazebo in the backyard. Putting one at a distance from your house gives you a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of family life, so you can sit and read, or just enjoy the soothing sounds of the outdoors.
Of course, you’ll want your outdoor living space to have some flora in addition to your decor from Lesera. We’ll discuss the benefits of a veggie garden in a bit, but you can give your backyard some jungle fever with the right plants and planters. Letting things grow out a bit will not only look great, but it’ll give you a lot of privacy as well.
10. The Grillmaster
We’ve already discussed the outdoor kitchen concept, but more people are going to be on board with a simple grill setup in the backyard. You don’t have to settle for just the grill, though, because you can actually turn your back area into a grilling haven.
Some people even build their grills into the motif of their backyard, complete with storage and refrigeration. We’re coming to your place for dinner.
11. Patterns on Patterns
To give your backyard an eastern Mediterranean or Persian look, you have to start with the gorgeous patterns. Mosaics on your walls, tables, and seating will give you what you’re looking for. The Lesera garden furniture collection has patterns that represent all sorts of European and Mediterranean locations, and some American ones too.
12. The Rustic Look
To create an outdoor living sanctuary that looks like it belongs in some ancient ruin, you have to look towards rustic furniture and decor. The Lesera collection of outdoor living structures will give you this antique look, so choose your favorite benches, statues, and garden planters, then spread them throughout your yard.
13. Where the Fish Roam
Why not add some wildlife to your outdoor living area with a pond filled with easy-to-take-care-of fish. Stick a chair or bench out by the pond and relax with a book while you watch your fish swim around the little domain you’ve made for them.
14. Veggie Garden
While it’s true that putting a vegetable garden in your backyard is a lot of work, it’s work that pays dividends almost immediately. Not only will it look amazing in mid-summer when it’s flourishing, but you’ll be able to reap what you sow.
Veggie gardening is also incredibly soothing and boosts mental health. You’ll be feeling great and eating well with your delicious harvest.
