Ideas for Designing Your Perfect Backyard Getaway

 

There are so many components involved in designing your perfect backyard. Some are large and invasive projects such as pools and water features, or terraced retaining walls. But bigger isn’t always better, and the addition of tasteful and elegant outdoor furniture and accessories is a simple way to transform your backyard into a space you can’t wait to come home to.

 

1. Define the Dimensions of the Outdoor Area

Measure the area of the space that you are designing so you know what you have to work with. At this point, a sketch of your backyard will be very helpful throughout each step in the design process.

 

2. Identify the Function of Your Backyard

Start the design process by identifying the primary use and goals for your outdoor space. Will it be for outdoor cooking and entertaining, kid-friendly use, lounging and relaxation, sunbathing, or patio gardening? Think of your backyard or patio as a part of your home that can function as another room.

 

3. Choose a Style

As an extension of your home, you may choose the same design style that you have in your home for your outdoor living space. Are your tastes modern and contemporary, traditional, transitional, eclectic, or more French Country? Furniture frames come in a variety of styles, and outdoor fabric color and print options are nearly endless.

Choosing design style will drive all of your purchases including furniture, fabric selection, and accessories such as rugs and pillows. Be sure the style will flow well with the rest of your existing backyard landscaping.

 

4. Use an Online Design Tool

Online design tools are beneficial to help you figure out how you would like to layout your furniture and accessories. It’s a good way to visualize exactly how everything will fit in your space. Your furniture and accessory layout should be cozy but still flow well without feeling cluttered. This step is essential in knowing exactly what you will need to purchase.

 

5. Go Shopping!

After you’ve gone through the steps above to thoroughly plan the design of your backyard retreat you’re ready to buy everything you need for the project. You will be amazed at how dramatically just a few outdoor furnishings will transform a concrete patio into an inviting living area.

Here are some options for you to consider when shopping for outdoor furniture.

 

Outdoor Patio Furniture

Be thoughtful with furniture purchases—you will get what you pay for. Outdoor furniture needs to be sturdy and well-crafted from high-quality materials so it is able to withstand outdoor weather conditions. Don’t forget to consider outdoor furniture covers to protect your investment and keep the furniture clean.

 

Tables

Choose the type of tables that will be appropriate for the function of your outdoor living space. Large rectangular tables are ideal for dining and entertaining, but not if your patio is small and will be used as a sitting area. Coffee tables and end tables function well in sitting areas.

 

Seating

Chairs, sofas, chaise lounge, benches, bar stools…oh my! There are many options for seating—you’re sure to find exactly what you need in a design that you love. The size and function of your patio living will determine the type of seating you choose. A chaise lounge or chair and ottoman are good options for relaxation, and a sofa and chairs are ideal for sitting areas.

 

Patio Fire Pits

Nothing creates a warm, intimate, and even romantic atmosphere quite like a fire table. The kids will enjoy roasting marshmallows, and you’ll love how your fire table lights up the night and provides heat when it’s cold outside.

 

Leave Room for Planters

Be sure to include plenty of space for plants when designing the layout of your outdoor retreat. Potted plants add color, texture, and warmth to an outdoor living space. A fully-landscaped yard can still benefit from including plants into the patio design.

Planters are the ideal accessory to include if your backyard is in an urban area with wall-to-wall concrete. Plant trees, vegetables, flowers, or an outdoor herb garden.

 

Accessories

Rugs, decorative pillows, and garden lighting are components that personalize your new patio oasis. Add pops of color and warmth with these accessories. Garden lights contribute to the mood and atmosphere of your space when the sun goes down. Be sure to include any lighting accessories in your online layout.

 

Patio Umbrellas

Shade any area of your yard with a patio umbrella. Outdoor umbrellas are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes to help you enjoy your backyard oasis even more. The height and angle of outdoor umbrellas are easily adjustable so you can get the most shade at any time of day.

Designing your new backyard retreat is an exciting process. Hopefully, you’re excited to get started! When you thoughtfully plan out your design you can be sure that your outdoor living space can be used any time day or night and in any kind of weather. Enjoying your new outdoor area for entertaining and relaxation is just a few steps away.

5 Modern Arm Chairs & Living Room Furniture Design Tips

 

Several concepts from interior and furniture design should be considered when trying to accomplish a certain look or style in a room. Whether you’re trying to pull off a contemporary style in your living room, a traditional style for your bedroom, or any other design of your preference, choosing the right furniture pieces to pull it all together can be an overwhelming process full of seemingly endless choices.

After all, it is quite frequently the attention to the details that gives a room its polished, defining look. To this end, follow these tips to help you choose the perfect accent chair for your living room.

1. Consider your focal point

When you first enter a room, what is the first thing you see? Adjacent to the entryway is the focal point of the room, so it’s important to ensure adequate thought and attention is paid to this space. In a living room, the focal point may be a fireplace, large piece of art, or sectional sofa. Choose an accent chair with its own unique details that also contributes to the beauty and personality of the focal point—a tufted arm chair, for example—which also contributes to the overall atmosphere of the room.

2. Define the room’s purpose

What do you see yourself and your guests doing in your living room? If conversation and entertainment is the goal, consider an accent chair with an ottoman that encourages conversation and engagement. If relaxation is the goal, perhaps choose a wingback arm chair that entraps heat from the fireplace and surrounds its occupant in comfort.

3. Follow a color scheme

As you select furniture and accent pieces, it’s important to follow a color scheme that compliments the purpose of the room and is attractive to you. Remember, you will be in the room more than anyone else, so while it is important to appeal to aesthetics it is equally important to adhere to personal tastes and preferences. A current trend is to follow a neutral color scheme, one with whites, beiges, and subtle pops of brighter colors, or perhaps a gray palette of various shades accentuated by a linen arm chair.  

4. Mix and match textures

Complementary textures and colors are ideal, even if they are mixed and matched. For example, add dimension to your room by selecting a modern arm chair with a deep seat and luxe material to complement sofa of a similar color but more durable material. Similarly, add an accent coffee table to break up the monotony of the soft textiles with the presence of wood or metal. This creates an aspect of congeniality that invites conversation and promotes relaxation.

5. Consider transitional pieces

As time passes, your taste and preferences may change slightly. New colors may become attractive to you and new priorities may encourage rearranging or going for a new look altogether. As you choose your furniture, consider choosing a few transitional pieces that stand the test of time, providing relaxation as well as sophistication to always suit your needs.

By adhering to a few simple rules of living room furniture design, you can choose the perfect arm chair that will add the finishing touch to the look of your room and create an inviting space in which to live and entertain.

7 Tips to Choose the Best Furniture for Your Living Room

 

Picking out the best furniture for your living room isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Whether you’re trying to choose living room furniture for small spaces or large ones, here are 7 tips to help you get started.

1. Consider the Space

Before heading out to do some shopping (because, let’s face it, that’s the best part of this process), you need to take a moment to consider your space. Have you given thought to what purpose you want your living room to serve? A sitting area? A gathering place? A combination of functions? Once you determine the purpose, finding furniture is much easier.

2. Keep Style in Mind

Interior designer or not, you have your own style. You may love contemporary styles or maybe you’re loyal to the classics. Whatever your style may be it dictates the pieces you choose to fill your home—make sure you stick with that style to maintain the flow of your house. Do you have a specific living room theme you’d like to keep with? Make an idea board with items that fit within your personal style, and use that to help keep you on track when purchasing furniture.

3. Measure the Room

Living room layout is key in helping determine the pieces of furniture you should choose for your space. Are you working with one giant room or perhaps a space that’s broken up a bit, or even an unconventional shape? Measure the space and keep those measurements handy to make sure you choose pieces that will fit in your space and not overwhelm it.

4. Stick with the Basics

Before you go crazy buying decor and pieces to fill your space, make sure you have accounted for the basics, like a couch, maybe a few sitting chairs, and a coffee table. Make a plan and make sure your room has the necessary furniture to allow it to function properly and serve the purpose you determined earlier.

5. Create a Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point, and your living room is no different. Even if you’re looking for living room furniture for small spaces, make sure you pick one piece to be the clear focus of the room, and organize everything else around that. Think a really nice couch, a set of patterned sitting chairs, or a really great bookcase. Finding the focal piece can help you build a theme and design for the entire room.

6. Don’t Forget Comfort

It’s easy to get caught up in creating a Pinterest-worthy space, but don’t forget to keep comfort in mind when choosing pieces for your living room, especially if you intend to spend a lot of time there. If buying online, it is a good idea to request fabric samples, so you can select an upholstery that you will be comfortable with. Also, consider the density of the cushions to assure you will enjoy sitting on your new furniture.

7. Don’t Crowd the Room

When choosing furniture pieces for your living room, don’t forget that less is more. Overcrowding your space makes it look cluttered and can make it difficult for visitors to identify the purpose or focal point of the room. Keep with the living room essentials and choose only chairs and sofa styles that fit within the space to keep the room feeling fresh, clean, and airy.

Worry No More

You no longer have any reason to fret over choosing furniture for your living room. Rely on these 7 simple tips to help you through the process, and you’ll come out with pieces you’ll love.
