4 tips to prepare your backyard for summer

Spring has arrived, which means summer isn’t too far behind. If your outdoor hangout needs sprucing up, now’s the time to hatch a plan for improvements. Plants and flowers are one of the best ways to add colour, but you can also spruce up the space with paint, furniture and accessories. Here are some ideas to get you started.


4 backyard ideas for summer

Accent wall

Most people think of an accent wall as something you add only to interiors, but it’s also a terrific way to introduce a burst of eye-catching colour on the outside of your home. What we love about exterior accent walls is that you can go a lot bolder than you might on the inside. This is because the area probably gets flooded with natural light, which softens and lightens the hue.

Greet visitors to your home with a splash of a warm, vibrant shade, such as a zesty orange. This colour would be tricky to pull off on the entire exterior of most homes, but on a fence or small section of wall, it’s a delightful dose of fun colour.

Textiles 

Of course, paint isn’t the only way to bring colour outside. There’s an abundance of colour and pattern options in outdoor-grade fabrics. Again, think about going somewhat bold. Think about vibrant lime green which coordinates nicely with the natural greens in the landscape.

Furniture

Another vehicle for introducing colour to your outdoor dining or lounge area is via furniture. We’re definitely seeing a trend toward more boldly hued outdoor furniture and furnishings. They’ll really stand out if most of the other materials in the space are of the neutral variety.

Artwork

Borrow ideas from your interior decor to dress up your outdoor spaces. Artwork that can withstand the elements is a fantastic addition to an outdoor lounge. This is another fairly low-commitment way to bring interesting colour to your outdoor hangout.

Just about anything can be rejuvenated with a fresh coat of paint. With that in mind, you don’t need to spend a fortune on artwork and accessories if your budget won’t allow it. Select weather-tolerant objects that have an interesting form, and paint them a fun shade for an affordable and personal display.

Landlords: You can generate more income by offering tidy liveable spaces for you tenants to enjoy.
