From furniture to lighting: a complete guide to revamping your outdoor space

Now is the perfect time to refresh your outdoor space and create the ultimate spot for relaxation and enjoyment this summer.

With summer on the horizon, there's no better time to get your outdoor space prepped and ready. 

There's nothing quite like sitting outside on a beautiful day, and with these simple, you can create an ultimate outdoor oasis for yourself and your loved ones.

Patio Planning


First up, it's time to plan your patio. The right furniture can make all the difference in your outdoor space. Consider both the style and function of your patio furniture set, and choose pieces that reflect your needs. If you love lounging in the backyard, a sectional would be a better fit for you than a set of chairs. If you are an entertainer, be sure to maximize your seating options and create an area that promotes conversation. In 2023, rounded shaped furniture sets are leading the outdoor trend.

Colour Corrections


Next, let's talk about colour. You can liven up your outdoor space with exterior paints and stains that pull inspiration from nature. Choosing the right shade can be a daunting task, but an expert choice like BeautiTone's exterior colour of the year, Western White, is a calming neutral influenced by the undertones of Canada's western red cedars. Pair it with a rich wood stain or a boldly coloured door to elevate the curb appeal of your home.

Exterior Decor 


Once your furniture and colours are set, it's time to accessorize. Outdoor decor is an opportunity to add personality to your space. Think vibrant outdoor rugs, ornate planters, and lively greens and flowers. With the return of maximalism, you can mix and match patterns to capture the trend, but be sure to select a palette of colours and patterns that match in intensity to avoid creating an eyesore.

Light Bright


Finally, set the mood with lighting. Outdoor heaters and fire tables are a stylish solution to bring light and warmth to a cool evening. When deciding where to place these items, look at the layout of your yard and find distinct areas to highlight. Add lighting to your conversation areas, but also showcase any landscaping or hardscapes you love.

Bringing all of these elements together will breathe new life into your yard, making it a space you'll want to spend time in. Don't wait any longer, now is the perfect time to refresh your outdoor space and create the ultimate spot for relaxation and enjoyment this summer.
